Cuddling: Does a body good.

Posted on

3. The Classic Big Spoon/Little Spoon

How to: On your sides, facing the same direction, curl up into the contours of each others' bodies, as if two spoons placed together.

Why do it: It's nice if you can sleep this way. Also lets you know if your big spoon feels like doin' it.


5. The Consolation Cuddle

How to: Facing your partner, both on your sides, move in for an embrace, adding affirming back rubbing.

Why do it: Convinces people that all is right in the world. Especially after their favorite TV show has been canceled.

6. The Tummy Nuzzle

How to: With your partner on his/her stomach (or back!) push your head into their stomachular area. You know you're doing it right when you hear their tummy gurgle.

Why do it: Gets you into a cuddle even when your partner is sleeping.

7. The Sitting Cuddle

How to: Sit on your partner's lap, facing either out or in, and go in for an embrace.

Why do it: An acceptable form of PDA, the Sitting Cuddle allows you to show others how much more in love you are than everyone else. Take THAT, David and Judy. You think you're sooooo perfect.


9. The Stomach Cuddle

How to: With both of you on your stomachs, one partner wraps an arm around the other's back.

Why do it: Try this out if you are both stomach-sleepers. Or you just don't feel like looking at your Special Friend.

12. The Bottom Snuggle

How to: With your partner laying on his/her side, burrow yourself (either in a sitting or reclining position) into the nook of their lap.

Why do it: When positioned correctly, you can still read a book or play Candy Crush while your S.O. sleeps.
