Back to Back

This relaxed sleeping position allows you and your partner to enjoy physical touch and still have your own space. Sleeping back to back indicates a healthy balance between personal independence and intimacy in your relationship. Choosing to sleep in this position shows that you are both comfortable and don't need much reassurance from each other.

In this position, both you and your partner are sleeping on your side, which is a healthy position for your back. However, you should be mindful of the mattress you choose and how and where you place your hands to prevent joint aches and pains.

Sleeping in this curled-up, semi-fetal position is intimate and comforting since it provides skin-to-skin contact and emotional support. The "big spoon" is usually the protector and giver in the relationship, while the "little spoon" is the person that might need some extra nurturing. Sleeping in this position indicates that you and your partner can rely on each other and have managed to create a safe environment for yourselves.

Spooning is suitable for both you and your partner's health since sleeping in this position helps relieve snoring and doesn't put pressure on your back - a Natural Latex Mattress will help to support your back and chest. Nevertheless, you should both be keen on ensuring your shoulder and knee joints don't strain.

Hollywood Style

Only about 4% of couples sleep in this position. However, sleeping in this position shows that you and your partner have strong cooperation skills, trust each other, see each other as a team, and are ready to face their problems together. It also shows that tenderness and romance are also dominant in the relationship.

This position entails one person sleeping on their back while the other rests on their side, laying their head on the former's chest. Similar to spooning, this position illustrates the protective side of one of the partners. Nonetheless, this position only works when you are comfortable sleeping on your side and your partner on their back or vice versa.

Side by Side

Sleeping side by side is the most comfortable way to fall and stay asleep, especially if you both like sleeping on your backs. Sleeping in this position keeps your entire front cool in warmer temperatures. Our Premium Hybrid Mattress allows you to move around without disturbing each other. Although, if either you or your partner snores or has sleep apnea, sleeping on your back isn't advisable.


Sleeping fully intertwined is an extremely sensual position that is common among new couples who can't keep their hands off each other, even while asleep. Sleeping in this position is rare in long-term relationships, but it represents incredible passion and indicates codependency in a relationship for those who do. If you choose to sleep in this position, it is essential to ensure that there is enough room between you so you can both breathe properly.

Find a Position that Works for You as a Couple

Despite there being several sleeping positions for couples, not every position would work for you and your partner. Determining what sleeping position works for both of you is the best way to enhance your sleep quality, quantity, and duration. You can start by considering the sleeping positions outlined above.
