[1] The spoons – with the man behind
This is a protective and sensual way to sleep. Protective because it makes a woman feel that her partner is looking after her in this position. But it’s also sensual as the man can reach around and caress his partner. This position hints at a traditional relationship.


[2] The spoons with the woman behind

This is a very nurturing position and shows that the woman is the backbone of the relationship. She cuddles her partner and makes him feel loved and secure in this position. In this relationship the man wouldn’t be frightened of letting go of responsibilities and letting his partner be his emotional anchor.


[3] Poles apart
This is where both partners sleep on their sides, with their backs turned to each other, facing the edge of the bed. This signals that you lack connection with each other and you may suffer from a lack of intimacy. You might also be so independent in the way you run your lives, that you end up independent between the sheets! Make sure you’re not living life on two parallel tracks that never meet and cross.


[4] Pushed out

This is where one of you hogs the bed and literally makes the other partner feel pushed out. They cling to the edge of the bed and usually don’t sleep well. Sometimes this is due to the partner’s size – if they’re large or tall they quite naturally take up too much space. However, if this isn’t the case, it may signal that they are selfish in the relationship and dominating it.


[5] Luscious lust

This position is where he sleeps on his back while she’s on her side cuddled up into his arms for full-on contact. Not only does this make it easier for some night-time naughtiness but if you fall asleep this way too, then it signals you simply can’t resist cuddling up and feeling that closeness. You’re probably still in the honeymoon phase of your relationship and should make sure you don’t lose some of that desire.


[6] Emotional neediness

He’s signaling that he really needs you when you lie on your back and he cuddles up into your arms. He needs a real emotional connection and to feel comforted. Just make sure you don’t find him too needy.


[7] Top tips to bridge the divide in the bedroom

Always make up if you’ve argued before you go to bed. Couples who don’t resolve their arguments end up feeling poles apart emotionally – as well as literally – when they turn away from their partner and refuse to have any contact. Nobody gets a good night’s sleep in this mood!
•Let your partner know (particularly a new one that you may feel more inhibited around) if there’s any reason you prefer a position that keeps you apart from them. It may be that you feel the heat very easily and so don’t like another person’s body warmth making you feel too hot. Or it may be that you’ve got a back problem and have to adopt a certain position to be comfortable. Whatever it is, make sure they don’t think it’s them if you choose a position that doesn’t allow any connection.

  • Always seal your sleep with a kiss and hug goodnight no matter what position you both prefer. As long as you’ve shown each other that you care then it doesn’t really matter if you prefer poles apart.
    Keep subtle lighting at your bedside to create a loving and a restful mood. Also choose the colors you use in your bedroom carefully so that they promote relaxation.
    The calmer you two are as you get into bed, the more you’ll feel connected to each other. To help achieve a sense of calmness in the bedroom, ban technology like mobiles and laptops to make sure you don’t end up feeling apart.
