6 Things He Wishes You Would Do in Bed

One guy pulls back the covers and reveals what x-rated action most men are secretly -- or not so secretly -- hoping for.
  1. Dirty Talk

    I’ve never met a guy who didn’t like dirty talk. During sex, just about anything you say will turn us on, even if it’s just a non-sensical stream of “ooooohs” and “yes.” To clarify: this doesn’t mean you need to rack your brain for the filthiest, nastiest words that even HBO isn’t allowed to televise, and it doesn’t mean we need a play-by-play like you’re John Madden. (“Boom!”)

  2. The Occasional Quickie

    It’s true: Too many men think the word “foreplay” is an obscure term used in golf. But then again, even for guys who fully appreciate the slow build-up, sometimes it’s hot to have a quick slice of nookie. Especially when it’s not expected—like during mid-afternoon, with no warning, while we’re both wearing clothes, against the wall.

  3. Kiss Another Girl

    We know, we know, you’re rolling your eyes. That’s fair. We know this is probably off the table—we’re not idiots—and we also know that if you messed around with another woman, realistically, this could be toxic to our relationship. So this fantasy is just that, a fantasy. So why does this make the list?  Because even if this has no practical application in your sex life, you deserve to know the truth.

  4. Engage In Public Action

    There’s just something extra spicy about doing it in a naughty place.  In the car, in the woods, under the stars, on the beach, on the subway (kidding!), in a restaurant bathroom (preferably not Burger King).

  5. Sex Echoes (Out of Bed)

    I’m inventing this term right now: “Sex echoes.” As in, the day after phenomenal sex, a “sex echo” is when your partner slyly reminds you of the prior night’s debauchery--ideally in mixed company, so only we get the inside joke. It could be a subtle reference, it could be a game of footsie, it could be a raised eyebrow, it could be a gentle hand-squeeze at just the right moment.  The point is that sex doesn’t stop at the bedroom, and sex doesn’t even stop at sex.

  6. Show Signs That You're Satisfied

    This is a little more general, but it’s a dude-mindset that gets overlooked. We get off when you get off.  We like positive reinforcement. Men are lucky in that we’ll have a good time no matter what, but Good Sex becomes Great Sex when we can tell that you’re into it.
