Why 18? Because it's the magic number.
18 is the minimum age (in most jurisdictions, at
least) at which you’re legally empowered to have
sex, and that makes it the perfect number for our list
of things that ladies love about sex with you. What
follows isn’t really a how-to. It’s more of a
1. Making Out
Kissing, frenching, snogging, sucking face—the prime
mover of the sex world. It can make or break the
chances of things going further. Nothing is a bigger
turnoff than kissing someone who is haphazard,
sloppily drunk, or or who is blind to body language.
Strike a balance with the tongue: No tongue at all
feels like junior high, too much tongue feels like
tenth grade. What’s the right amount? If you have
to ask…. Oh, and please close your eyes.
Want to get your woman wet and ready? Start up
top. Sucking and (lightly, for most) biting the neck
and ear feels incredible, as long as you don’t linger
too long. You want your lady to look like she’s been
with a master lover, not an extra from True Blood.
3. The Look in His Eye When He is Ready to Throw
Down, Right Then and There
Some women complain about a guy
who is horny all the time, but trust me when I tell
you that the opposite is way worse. No one likes a
meek lover. And eye contact during the act is always
a good idea.
4. Undressing Slowly
When a woman is aroused, she’s confident about
the way she looks, and confidence is an attractive
trait in a partner. When we’re secure enough to
undress piece by teasing piece, the hot factor
5. The Rule of the Nipple
Women have tits, and we like you to play with them,
suck on them and maybe even tease them with your
teeth. Our nipples are also often very sensitive, as
are the areolae. No twisting, please
—unless we ask
Lots of Foreplay
We put as much emphasis on the appetizer as we
do on the entrée. Let us luxuriate in physical
attention all over our bodies, and we’ll lavish that
attention back (that’s right, you gotta give it away
to get it). So get exploring.
7. Worship of the Clit
Yes, please. A very large number of women do not
get vaginal orgasms, no matter how rocking their
men are, nor how hard they work. So a man who
enthusiastically and expertly manipulates the clitoris
will achieve the best of results. And for the men out
there who can’t find it: Google Maps.
8. Seeing Your Dude Get Aroused
We know that most men can get hard sitting on their
asses doing nothing, but knowing that you caused
that response in him is one of the more exhilarating
and sexy feelings a woman can experience.
9. Being Naked with Your Dude
As scary as this can be (for some people), there’s
something highly erotic about simply being
unclothed and vulnerable.
An entirely personal sensation: a man is inside you,
and you feel close to him. Nothing feels better than
No girl wants some random at the gym to sweat all
over her, no matter how cute he may be. But to see,
feel, and even taste a man’s sweat as he gets
worked up in bed can be sublime.
Loud, graphic sex talk can be fun, but impassioned
whispers in your ear as he takes you really push
women over the edge. Just make sure you don’t say
something that ruins the mood, like, “You really look
like your mom right now.”
13. When a Man is Too Into It to Even Talk
This is just as good. If all he can manage are some
serious grunts and moans, we know we’re doing the
14. When a Man Makes You Feel Like a Sex
It’s super-hot when a man tells you that you know
exactly what to do to get him off. Everyone wants to
be great in bed. And we’re more than happy to
return the favor.
15. A Hard, Fast Quickie
Remember when we said “foreplay?” Well, every
once in a while, we can do without if it means we
get an athletic, intense roll in the sack. Especially if
we’re super-stressed out.
16. Being on Top
A woman feels empowered being able to ride a man.
She dictates the rhythm and motion, and this allows
her some control during sex, which can be very sexy.
17. The Orgasm
When this happens (and yes, men, it should be your
goal for both of you to get there), it truly is explosive
for us. You truly lose yourself for a moment, and the
heat and abandon is just right. As for the men’s side
of the deal, we women love your fluid. Messy? Yes.
Not the best flavor? Oftentimes, no. But for sheer
animalistic lust, having a man shoot in or on you is
pretty glorious. As long as you are committed or
taking precautions, of course.
Is there a more deeply satisfying feeling in the world
than post-coital bliss? Just lying with (or even on)
your partner in a sweaty, exhausted, gorgeous
mangle of limbs. Also, the coming back down to
earth and attendant flood of thoughts and emotions.
And, perhaps most important, feeling the connection
of sharing something so intimate with someone
