A partner’s bad sex habits can be a major turn-off. This is one of the reasons why long-time couples often find their sex lives dwindling. Bad sex habits could arise from misconceptions or sheer laziness. Are you guilty? Here are the worst sex habits that men have – and how to correct them.
Pop a mint if you consumed or put strong-smelling objects such as garlic, alcohol and cigarettes into your mouth earlier. Take a shower and change your clothes – especially underwear – because not all women appreciate “the scent of a man” (an alternative description for body odour). Keep your room and toilet clean, to keep it from looking and smelling like a sty.
Whichever canal you plan on releasing gas from, never do it in her face. If necessary, excuse yourself and release the gas in another room. For minor releases through your mouth, turn away and close your mouth, then say excuse me after you’re done.
Imagine how great the sex would be if you waited for her to be ready to do everything with enthusiasm! Help her to imagine how both of you could feel by describing what you want to do – and what you want her to do for you. Be patient. “Make it into a teasing game,” says Jennifer Worick, author of Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating and Sex. “Always touch her most sensitive parts last.” And not all women enjoy playful spanking. Do it only if she asks you to.
Tread lightly when approaching any area near the ear. Nibbling and kissing her lobes are fine, but stop there, says Sarah Miller, a UK-based sex author. Treating her ear like ice cream will probably lead to you getting an earful from her.
If you need to, ask questions that require a yes/no response – for example: “Are you comfortable?” or “Should I keep doing this?” – pay attention to non-verbal cues and go with the flow. Moans, arching of her back and moving her body towards you are signs of arousal and pleasure.
If you’re not aware of it, the only way to find out whether you swear in bed is to ask your partner. If you do, reduce the damage by replacing those words with less harmful alternatives.
