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.
