There is an art to falling asleep comfortably with another person in the bed. Most likely, you’re going to run into this problem of sharing a bed after a night with a woman. They always get too hot to be near but still want to cuddle, but then have ice-cold feet that they’ll shove between your legs. While you can’t control the temperature, you can have some control over the positions you fall asleep in.
The Side Saddle
All right, so this one will get her warm body off of you a little bit. If you can, sleep on your stomach. She gets to snuggle up next to you and put her leg over your back/butt area. She can throw an arm around you too. Skin contact for her and space for you.
This is a classic, of course. Just like when you put two spoons together, they’re going to fit perfectly. You probably already fall asleep like this pretty often. When she puts her butt into your crotch both of you should bend your legs slightly. While you’re in this semi-fetal position, slip your arm under her neck. The trick to avoid the dead man’s arm is to slightly roll back so the space by your armpit doesn’t get pinched and cut off circulation.
You’ll end up with five points from two people, like a starfish’s arm. Her head goes on your chest and your arm goes around her. Think about it: your head is the top, then you have two arms and both of you have your legs sticking out in a straight line. Bam, the starfish. You won’t have to worry about trapped arms or losing bed space. Plus you can still have your arms free to text or read a book. If you’re skilled enough, you can play a video game too.
Similar to the classic version, except in this one both of you will be leaning slightly forward. The little spoon lies halfway on their stomach and puts their knee out, laying flat on the bed. The big spoon mimics this and puts an outstretched arm out over little spoon. No one is laying on each other or causing pins and needles. This is one of the most comfortable positions to sleep in.
Remember how Superman flew off with Louis Lane in his arm? This position does the same thing, except you’ll just be staying on a bed. You put one arm above your head and she lies on the pillow next to it. Now just have her snuggle up to you spoon style and wrap your other arm around her. When done right, this position can make it a lot easier for you to get out of bed without even waking her up.
It takes some experimenting to find out which position is best for you and your lady. People always have preferences and the season will be a factor. In winter you might not mind her extreme body temperature… just beware those ice feet.
