Definition - What does The Spoon Position mean?

The spoon sex position is a rear entry position in which both partners lay on their sides, front to back. The receiving partner lays with their back to the penetrating partner. The position can be used for vaginal or anal sex. Although this is an excellent intimate position for heterosexual couples, it can also be used by gay and lesbian couples.

This position may also be referred to as spoons, classic spoon, spooning, or saucy spoons.

Kinkly explains The Spoon Position

The spoon position is an excellent sex position for couples who are trying to ease into rear entry sex. The angle of penetration is perfect for stimulating pleasure buttons like the G-spot and prostate. It also makes stimulating the clitoris or penis of the receiving partner much easier. It is very accessible to all people.
