The Facing Spoon sex position offers all of the skin-on-skin contact of the Spooning position with the added benefit of face-to-face intimacy.

To get into this sex position, both partners lie on their sides and face each other. The receiver spreads their legs slightly to be entered. Once the giver has penetrated their partner, the receiver can then put their legs back together, putting their clitoris or penis in a position to be stimulated by the shaft of the penis, their lover's stomach, or strap-on dildo.

This position may also be called the Sidewinder.


More About The Facing Spoon Position

Having sex in this position can be very intimate. It's much easier for a couple to kiss, hug, and caress.

However, thrusting can be somewhat tricky in this position, so couples may need to get a little creative. For instance, instead of traditional thrusting, couples can try grinding together or moving their pelvises in circular motions to enhance the pleasure. Sex toys, like cock rings or couple's vibrators, can also add even more stimulation to help make up for the gentler movements.
