Raleigh, N.C. -- Two North Carolinians say they hope to set a record at an upcoming music festival for most people involved in simultaneous spooning.
Spooning, an antique method of courting, involves two people, fully clothed, lying front to back. Nicole Brown-Smedley, a graduate student at North Carolina State in Raleigh, and her fellow organizer, Johnsie Hingley, plan to get 500 people into the act during Labor Day weekend at The Getdown, a four-day festival in Mebane, The (Charlotte, N.C.) Observer reported.
"The act of spooning, especially in this context, says, 'I don't know you, but I trust you at my back,' Brown-Smedley said. "It will make people feel connected."
