What You're Really Doing in Bed
"Be consistent. In the beginning, variety and creativity is great, but
once you figure out the right combination, speed, and pressure, stick to one
rhythm until the end." -- Philip, 33
"Maintaining eye contact is one of the hottest moves a woman can make
during oral sex. It's more intimate and is nonverbal confirmation that she's
enjoying it as much as you are." -- Dave, 28
"Attend to the head and the shaft, but don't forget the balls. It's
often overlooked, but a very sensitive hot spot." -- John, 30
"The element of surprise. I've been married for 15 years, and oral sex
is sometimes the last thing I'm expecting. When she suddenly pushes me down on
the bed out of the blue, it's a great rush." -- Brendan, 44
"Being hands-on. For women who don't like giving oral sex, with the
right hand motions, you actually don't have to use your mouth that much."
-- Todd, 36
How Are Those O's?
Congratulations: 51% of you say that you reach orgasm every time or nearly
every time you're with your guy. (Another 31% say you orgasm half to
three-quarters of the time.) That doesn't mean orgasm is a sure thing -- when
asked how easy it is for you to climax with your guy, on a scale of 1 to 5, 31%
of you say it's just a 3, while only 19% say it's a 5. Only 15% say you can
always peak from intercourse alone, while 21% say you never can. On the other
hand, when asked how easy it is for you to reach orgasm by yourself, almost
half of you said 5, or, "It's a sure thing." Yet 22% of you say you
never masturbate at all. That's a shame, considering that masturbating is not
only fun -- it can actually help your partnered sex life. "Research shows
that women who masturbate have better sexual response in all areas: more
orgasms, less pain, even more desire," says REDBOOK Love Network expert
Laura Berman, Ph.D., author of The Passion Prescription.
