Everyone likes to be the little spoon at some point. It’s more comfortable and you don’t have hair in your grill while trying to sleep. If you live under a rock, ‘spooning’ is the act of hugging side by side lying down, with one person acting as a ‘big spoon’.

It’s like a big human blanket essentially.

However, out of 20% of UK couples who spoon, it was shown that men who little spoon consider it to be a plague on their masculinity, with 55% of young men admitting they worry about being mocked for being emotionally open.

However, science has shown us that men who prefer the little spoon make better partners.

There’s even a WikiHow.

Steve McKeown, psychoanalyst and founder of The McKeown Clinic said:

‘Men that prefer to be the little spoon are more likely to be submissive, sensitive, pleasing and in touch with their feminine side. A male that is in touch with his sensitive side can be more compassionate and definitely a contrast from the traditional male.

According to McKeown, men who little spoon tend to be more emotionally intelligent, which is a major plus point in any relationship.’

Little known fact, if you’re the big spoon, but you’re shorter than the little spoon, it’s not spooning, it’s jetpacking.
