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.
I like to be on my back with her head on my shoulder and her arm and leg draped over me.
Big spoon with my lower arm wrapped under her neck cupping the upper breast and my upper arm wrapped over her side cupping her lower breast.It's a huge, gropey hug.
Her lying on top of me. Lying on our sides face to face and hugging. Maximum contact please.
When there is a woman there with me.
It's always been big spoon but lately face to face with our bellies touching is getting really good.
I wanna be the little spoon for once.
Spooning unless watching tv. Then my on my back and her on my chest. When sleeping, spooning toward her side of the bed, so I can stop cuddling and cool off if I get hot during the night.
Me on my back, her laying close beside me with her head on my chest and I'm playing with her hair.
Her head nestled in my chest with her arm around me. My arm around her, playing with her hair.
We tend to cuddle face-to-face on our sides. I like this position; I wrap my top arm around her and draw patterns on her back with my fingers while we nuzzle noses and kiss.
The one that doesn’t make me hot as hell. Seriously. Women are like a furnace, I’d be shocked if when they go to use the restroom the urine doesn’t just come out as steam.
Lying on my stomach while she perches on my butt and watches TV.
Makes my back feel great bro
Wouldn't know, never cuddled
Seriously, someone please go cuddle this guy.
