You know what I'm talking about here - that dreaded dulling numbness that eventually sets in during a spooning session, almost inevitably as soon as the spoonee has blissfully drifted off to sleep. Pain in the arse, isn't it? Well, the arm.

US-based company Coodle has now solved the problem with a special pillow that makes spooning a much more comfy activity for affectionate couples.

The Coodle pillow is a memory foam pillow styled into an arch shape, with plastic ribs inside to help it keep its shape.

Basically, it takes the weight of the spoonee's head off the spooner's arm, allowing it to fit snuggly through the arch.

Although $6549) might feel a little pricey, it's a specialist pillow - just think how fancy you'll feel when you tell your mates you've got one of those - meaning you can spend more time locked in a sweet embrace with your other half.

The pillow was invented by real-life couple Bob and Shirley, who love cuddling up to watch TV, according to the product website.

Having come up with the idea for a solution to the age-old problem, Bob cut foam and bent plastic in his oven to create a tunnel-shaped pillow, and eventually named it the 'Coodle' before securing a utility patent from the United States Patent Office.

"A concept, a dream, an invention can spark a person's spirit so that it bypasses doubt and fear. Making the leap, big or small, is something we all do in our lives. We won't know success if we let that opportunity pass or fade away," the website states.

Of course, you don't only have to use the Coodle pillow for spooning - it's ideal for lone soldiers too.

The website recommends you use it to prop yourself up when doing things like watching TV, or even just so you're not lying completely flat in bed.

However, unfortunately for Brits, the pillow is currently only available for our friends across the pond in the US - but we can live in hope that one day it'll be our turn too.

Next they just need to solve the problem of the spoonee's hair getting in the mouth of the spooner, and then we've got this tricky art all sorted.
