Experts for body language are dealing with the relationship between different facial expressions, body movements, and positions on emotional state, social, and personal life of a person. They have developed many theories about personality based on different body movements and behavior. One of these experts, Patti Wood, suggested that sleeping positions that you have with a partner in bed can tell you much about your relationship. This phenomenon is due to subconscious mechanisms that replace conscious mind when we are asleep. Body experts have identified several sleeping positions and explained them in terms of relationship with a partner.
The Loose Spoon
After some time, couples go from the spoon position to the loose spoon in which they make a bit of space between them. Woods says that this is identical pattern of relationship, but occurs in more mature couples. This is less sexual position than classical spooning.
