Ever secretly wonder whether you’re doing a bunch of weird stuff in bed, but everyone’s been too polite to say anything?
No? Just me? Alright then.
If you’re entirely confident in your sexual skills, then, the results of this survey won’t bother you at all.
Forktip surveyed 5,000 adults on all things sex-related, including the things they hate a sexual partner to do in bed. The results are a handy list of what not to do when you’re getting sensual, but reading them may make you get all in your head and turn you into a stiff, robotic love-maker, newly aware of every movement and sound you make. Be warned.
So, on to the turn-offs.
For the straight women surveyed, the worst things men can do in bed are making weird noises, having a penis that’s ‘too small’, ejaculating too quickly, and changing position too frequently.
Biggest sex turn-offs for women:
- Weird noises
- Small penis
- Ejaculating too quickly
- Changing positions too frequently
The straight men surveyed said they aren’t fans of breasts that are ‘too small’, a ‘lack of booty’, making ‘too much’ noise, or having a vagina that’s ‘too loose’.
Biggest sex turn-offs for men:
- Too loose
- Making too much noise
- Small breasts
- Lack of booty
You’ll notice the word ‘too’ a lot in there. That’s important, because it’s a reminder that all of these qualities are entirely subjective.
There’s no objective definition of breasts that are ‘too small’. Whatever size your tits are, there will be plenty of people who find them the hottest thing ever.
The same goes for a ‘too small’ penis. What’s small to some is perfect for others, and regardless, most women orgasm through direct stimulation of the clitoris, which isn’t dependent on penis size in any way. It’s all about how you use it.
Weird noises are subjective too (what’s weird to some is a turn-on to others), and many men who believe a vagina is ‘too loose’ are simply reacting to years of using a ‘death grip’ when masturbating.
The best thing to do if you’re concerned that you’re annoying your sex buddy with your moans or movements? Chat to them. They’re likely to know better than a bunch of strangers on the internet, and they’ll be able to confirm whether they find your little squeaks of enjoyment deeply irritating or incredible arousing.
Oh, and if you’re concerned that you’re changing positions too often, take a look at your partner’s face when you’re about to change. If they roll their eyes or look a bit miserable, you might be going a bit wrong.
