10 shocking things she’s thinking about your body in bed
1. Bare isn’t necessarily best.
“It’s not like we’re dating 13-year-olds anymore, so when I’m sleeping with a guy who has no chest hair, it’s kind of creepy. It needs to be somewhere in the middle. I like it not completely bare, but well manicured.” — Lauren K., Huntington, NY
2. It’s so big. I’m terrified.
“Contrary to the bigger-is-better mantra, most women I know prefer a more modest, average-size penis. The bigger ones are really intimidating! And they also hurt. If a guy is packing heat, he needs to make sure he handles it gently, because painful sex is never good sex.” — Cynthia G., Schaumburg, IL
3. Thank God he's got a belly!
“Maybe it’s selfish, but I feel a lot more comfortable with a guy who has a little extra meat on him—even if it’s not toned. That way I don’t feel like I have to be so perfect all the time. I also think that if a guy isn’t jacked, that means he won’t choose the gym over me. Plus it always makes girls feel smaller and skinnier when we're with a bigger guy.” —Kacie M., Burlington, MA
4. Keep the glasses on.
“For every guy who’s had the schoolgirl sex fantasy, there’s a girl with a reciprocal sex fantasy in which he’s playing the professor. Watching him poke his eyeball out while putting on his contacts in the morning is a waste when there is nothing hotter than a pair of thick-rimmed glasses. Makes me feel like there’s something manly and intellectual lurking behind those lenses.”— Sara H., Seattle, WA
5. Hellllloo, tattoos!
“It’s common girl code knowledge that tattoos are super hot, even for the sweetest, most innocent kind of girls. If a guy rips off his shirt in the bedroom and surprises you with a little ink, it’s an instant turn on. I mean, have you seen Adam Levine?” — Tara T., Dayton, OH
6. Bald is sexy.
“It seems like some men are insecure about not having hair, but honestly, I love a bald guy. There’s something manly about the Bruce Willis look. Bald guys just come off as more masculine and dominant than other guys, which is an important quality to have in the bedroom.” —Kelly M., Danbury, CT
7. Relax with the Axe.
“My favorite thing is the smell of soap and laundry detergent on a guy rather than two gallons of Axe or Jean Paul Gaultier. Cologne is OK, but only in moderation. If I smell it too much, it’s kind of like he’s covering up the fact that he didn’t shower or something.” — Lisa A., Johannesburg, South Africa
8. I wish I could pull his hair.
“I love when I’m hooking up with a guy and he doesn’t have any products in his hair. Nothing is worse than trying to be sexy by pulling it and getting a handful of pomade in return.” — Beth S., South Lake Tahoe, CA
9. Invest in a nail clipper.
“Toenails. You probably never think twice about them, but I always check to see what they look like. If he cuts me with them, he’s out on the street. End of story.” —Ashley S., Shawnee, KS
10. Well, this looks like a hairy situation.
“Maybe this is rude, but unruly pubic hair is a major deal breaker for me. He has to keep his shit in check. Sorry, but if I’m keeping myself groomed the guy I’m sleeping with should too. So remember that a little trim goes a long way.” — Kristen S., New York, NY
