5 Mistakes Guys Make in Bed


Much as we'd all love to believe we live up to a godly sex standard, there’s always room for improvement. However, there are certain things about heterosexual sex in particular that encourage widespread, systemic mistakes - you know, simply because we're not dealing with the same parts and body chemistry.

But to hell with all that Mars and Venus crap. We're all much more alike than we are different, and despite what conventional wisdom says, there are some men out there who seem to know exactly what women want, at least in the bedroom.

If you're not entirely there yet, don't let yourself get too limp over it. Here are the five biggest mistakes guys make in bed, with some pointers on how to avoid them:

1.  The"Point A to Point B" manner

If you're guilty of this one, we don't blame you at all. Isn't the "male brain” all about linear logic?

Unfortunately, if you've been going through the same exact motions your entire adult life - make out, fondle the boobs, exchange oral, fuck, lather, rinse, repeat - it's time to consider radically upending your routine.

Wouldn't it feel kind of novel and exciting if a woman ripped off your pants and immediately went down on her knees without so much as a warmup kiss?

That's not to say you need to take the warmth and tenderness out of the equation, but instead, allow your intuition to guide your way through the process, whether that entails a back-massage-turned-salad-tossing or a romp that ends in a long makeout session.

2.  Not paying attention to the buildup

For the love of all things holy, slow down! Unless you're engaging in a hot quickie, sex shouldn't feel like you're high-tailing it to your own orgasm.

Perhaps you have a tendency to ejaculate prematurely - if so it's not your fault if things end a little quicker than expected. But if that's the case - and even if you've got the self-control of a monk - no one will fault you for taking a break from thrusting to deliver a little extra tongue.

Plus, buildup is about so much more than speed. Setting the right tone can happen over the course of a workday, thanks to modern technology. Teasing and tempting your woman, whether you do that through your phone or when you first hop into bed, can make the whole experience better.

3.  Relying too much on Professor Porn

Once again, we simply can't blame you for taking your sexual cues from the world of internet porn. You’d be hard pressed to find a guy who doesn’t spend some time every week on their favourite XXX sites.

However, since you're here, you're obviously ready to re-examine some of those early learned behaviours, so it probably helps to understand that most porn tells you very little about what actually feels good to a woman. Those crazy positions and constant jackhammering may look fun on camera, but in the real world, they’re usually just uncomfortable.

Also, that the porn you watch has a professional team of editors at the ready once shooting is complete. In your own bedroom, however, those funny “O faces” and awkward noises will happen, so do whatever you can to let your partner know it doesn’t matter.

4.  Leaving us high and dry

Getting us wet enough is only part of the equation - we have to stay that way for things to keep feeling awesome. Assuming you're waiting until we're plenty moist to begin with, you should bear in mind that we sometimes require some extra wetness, especially during marathon sessions. If you’re using a condom, this problem is even more likely to occur.

That’s not all we mean about “leaving us high and dry,” however. Many men go into hibernation mode the minute they come and if you’ve fully satisfied your partner, she may be just fine with a bit of a post-coital nap. However, if you’re the type to roll over and start snoring as soon as you’re finished, you shouldn’t be surprised when you don’t get invited back. 

Of all the things that frustrate women about sex, the worst might be the overwhelming tyranny of "sex stops where the boner does".

5.  Missing the sweet spot

This goes hand in hand with leaning too much on the tutelage of porn, but you should let go of the notion that your partner's going to come just because you're ramming her extra hard.

If anything, jackhammer sex - though perfectly awesome when the mood's right - can hit your lady in all the wrong spots. More often than not, women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm, which requires a complete session of oral, pubic friction, or the right kind of manual stimulation during sex.

    I guess a man should remember that not all women like the same things, just like not all men like the same things. Some like it hard, some like it soft, some fast, some slow, etc. I hate it when guy things he is doing it right, and even when I tell him to do it differently, he continues to do it "his" way and it almost rubs me raw with no pleasure at all. But what really gets me, is when a guy STOPS too soon and I am just starting to orgasm and he thinks I finished already, and he stops ALL action, no more touching, no more licking, etc. I mean really? And then, they ask that great question... did you cum? I tell so many men that I was just "starting" to cum but you stopped too soon, and then I lost it. I mean come on men, stop "thinking" that you know when a woman is finished, and listen to her and her body. My biggest complaint for men is DON'T STOP.

    Before a couple has sex for the first time they should talk about what they like and don't like doing in the bedroom. Communication is the best thing because the couple will know how to please each other and make the sex that more enjoyable. A women needs a man to be a good kisser,not all women like tongue kissing. Women like getting oral sex it makes us cum and we like are nipples being played with and sucked. After sex it is nice to be held by your partner. Most women like their partner to spend the night with them, instead of them going home straight after sex.

    Once I was with a guy although was wonderful in so many other areas, felt the need to claw at my breast. Even after I repeately told him that I had sensitive breasts! Women are not all the same if they say they don't like it stop have some respect!!! In the end I was feeling extremely pissed off as he was neither listening or didn't give a shit that it wasn't turning me on.

      Well a bloke would have to be an IDIOT to not check first if that's ok. I've had a partner who loved really hard biting and hair being pulled but the clincher was good communication and no guessing. Pretty simple IMO

    AND talking - if something doesn't feel good - say so and maybe think on how to make it feel better. ALSO girls/women, I love to put all of my naughty thoughts into actions, but I'd be just as happy to put your naughty thoughts onto the same playing field, after all it is a game ;-) one of the nicest that can be!

    Sometimes it is the basic things such as having clean teeth, short nails and using soap when you bath! You don't have to wear cologne, just smell clean ;)

    I'm starting to think this site is run by women, most of these articles are written by, and are also from a womans perspective.

    How about when a guy plays the commentator? Guiding us from one position to the next as if we were trying to perform some choreographed dance that might look good in his head but once executed feels and looks ridiculous. Just go with the flow, be spontaneous rather than trying to fulfill all your fantasies in one session! be in the moment that's my advice

    not to good either when the guy goes straight for the clit, and rubs so much it just gets annoying, rather than pleasure.
