In the spoons cuddling position, one partner lies on one side with knees bent while the other partner lies with his or her front pressed against their back. The spoons cuddling position is not limited to two people. In the sex position, the receiving partner would be in the inner spoon position and the penetrator is in the outer spoon in preparation for rear-entry penetration. For penetration, the partners may separate their upper bodies, with just the pelvises connecting, and their legs can also rest on top of each other. The receiving partner may lift the upper knee to allow for easier penetration. During heterosexual sexual activity, the penetrating partner can caress the woman's stomach and stimulate her breasts, the back of the neck and ears, and clitoris. The woman can stimulate her own clitoris or her partner's scrotum. In addition, the penis stimulates the front of the vagina, and may stimulate an area that is commonly termed the G-spot. Along with the doggy style position, this may be the best position from which to stimulate this area. Variations on this position include the partners lying on their sides face-to-face or in the scissors position. Anal sex is also possible in this position, along with use of a vibrator.
