This post on the how-to site wikiHow tugs at the heartstrings of anyone who can imagine (or remember being) a hopelessly confused teenager wondering how people get it together enough to try to touch other people without doing it wrong and dying of embarrassment.
It goes from the simple, logical steps of spooning (“If you are spooning from a right-handed position (lying on your left side) slide your left arm under his/her head and your right arm around his/her waist”) to some truly helpful, above-and-beyond-type tips:
- Try not to breathe heavily. Nothing is more unattractive when spooning than having someone panting in your ear.
- If you are trying to be intimate and tender with the person you are spooning, try kissing the top of his/her neck.
To whoever writes weird but beautiful wikiHow articles like this one, I say kudos and thank you.
