The Best Cuddling Positions, According To 13 Men In Relationships


Cuddling is a real source of contention within my otherwise happy relationship. The problem isn't that either of us hate cuddling. He's a natural cuddler and I grew up sleeping with my mom, so falling asleep snuggling someone I feel comfortable with is my ideal. Our problem is that we both want to be the little spoon. I mean, let's face it, being big spoon sucks. It's hot and you have hair in your face and you can get farted on at any given moment. I know as far as cuddle positions go, men are "traditionally" supposed to be the big spoon and that's it, but a recent Reddit AskMen thread asked men to share their ideal best cuddle positions and, it turns out, my boyfriend and I aren't weirdos after all. (Well, to be clear, we are weirdos... just not in this sense.) Plenty of guys like positions other than big spoon.

Honestly, reading through these gave me a lot of inspiration. WHO KNEW there were so many creative cuddling positions out there? I've always felt that the way you cuddle is super important and speaks volumes about your relationship, so I'm all about this whole new world of cuddling opportunities that has been brought to my attention by this thread. Read along and try to decide if A) it's time to try a new cuddle position and 2) if your boyfriend is secretly using Reddit under username, /u/showmethebiggirls.
