The last thing any man wants when they get down and dirty is to let their partner down and feel like dirt afterward.
Thankfully, upping your Sex God game is easier than you might think. If you know to avoid these five all-too-common bedroom blunders, you’re already a better lover than most guys out there.
1. Let’s not beat around the bush
The days of bushy 70’s ball ‘fros are behind us.
Pube grooming is now equally as important for men as it is for women. Besides the fact an overgrown mangarden is not a pleasant place for anyone to frolic in, keeping your short-and-curlies in check just looks tidier and shows that you spend more than two seconds on your hygiene and appearance.
As an added bonus, a spot of gardening down south exposes more of your “stalk”, making your manhood look even more monumental.
2. “Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am” is for amateurs.
If you want to keep that special someone coming back for more, you actually have to make her come in the first place.
Men can be up for anything at a moment’s notice. When the offer of sex is on the table, it’s all to tempting to drop everything and dive right in.
Ladies? Not so much. Members of the fairer sex prefer to whet their appetites with a delicious starter before filling up on the main course. Romantic candles and mood music aren’t going to cut it — you need a hands-on approach to get her tingling all over. Depending on how things are going, you might want to start with a massage and slow kisses, which can then eventually lead to undressing and gently exploring her body with your fingers. (And no, we don’t mean twirling her nipples like car radio dials. That’s another amateur move, by the way.) Just listen closely and follow her lead — she’ll let you know what gets her going.
To put it bluntly: when you give a woman the chance to get just as horny as you are, sex will be 10 times hotter for both of you.
3. Dry sex is a pain for both parties.
If it’s feeling like you’re trying to start a small brush fire down there, you’re definitely doing it wrong.
Not only will it leave your partner sore, but in rare cases, it can cause injury to the penis.
Because a lady’s level of natural lubricant depends on where she is in her cycle and not necessarily how “turned on” she is, having a little lube on hand ensures a smooth ride for everyone, whenever and wherever the mood strikes.
4. Full Steam Ahead
Hammering away too hard when you’re nailing makes it very obvious you got most of your sex “education” from porn.
Trust us, she can tell!
Hint: just because her moans of pleasure are getting louder, that doesn’t mean she’s giving you a license to crank it up to 11 and start pounding her like a pneumatic drill.
If she’s begging you not to stop, she means keep doing exactly what you’re doing.
Women need constant, repetitive stimulation to reach climax, so when you find her sweet spot, don’t break your stride.
Furthermore, you don’t want to risk blowing your load before she hits the finish line by going at it too fast, which is a massive letdown for everyone. Slow and steady wins the race.
Whilst alcohol can be uninhibiting and relaxing, too much can also make it near impossible to perform when the time comes. Whiskey dick anyone?
The irony is that the very thing that increases our desire for sex – and the confidence to pursue it – can ultimately be the thing that lets you, and your partner down at the crucial moment.
Don’t be that guy – if you’re planning a big night between the sheets go easy on the booze, or lay off it completely.
