Let’s face it, guys are pretty spoilt for ways to woo us. From BBM-ing sweet nothings to texting us raunchy pics, there’s a bizillion inventive tricks to leave us loved-up and breathless. But now a new survey has revealed exactly what guys and gals really want in bed – and guess what? There’s not a pair of crotchless pants in sight. PHEW. Here we reveal the results, ensuring you’re both raring to go, Cosmo-style:
According to the survey, nearly half of all adults have engaged in a little ‘dirty talk’ over the phone. If you haven’t, why the heck not? Get dialing ladies, but make er, sure you call his mobile not his desk phone. And always check he hasn’t put you on speakerphone first...
But not too dirty
Share this among your male buddies – use the L-word boys! 42% of women said that being told ‘I love you’ gets them hotter than being told they were ‘hot’. To cover all bases, why not try them both? Just sayin’.
Vino + meal = sex O’clock
Sometimes simple really is best. Both sexes unanimously agreed that sharing a romantic meal with a nice bottle of wine makes for the perfect pre-passion night of fun. So ditch the elaborate day at Monkey World, followed by the hot balloon ride and sparklers in the horse and carriage ride and go simple. Less pressure guarantees more fun. And we all want fun in bed, right?
Younger men and women ‘fessed up to getting stuck in to sexting – with 22% saying they’re likely to get turned on by a raunchy text message. Start small and if he’s got an iPhone, leave the really explicit stuff till the end of the message – you’ve seen the first few lines of a text flash up on your mates’ screens before, right? We’re thinking of your future blushes here!
Add some length
Ooer. 65% of women said they were satisfied by the length of their sex-sessions but 55% of men hoped for a bit longer between the sheets. Fancy being kind? Treat him to an extra few minutes (we think watching Made in Chelsea in bed counts, don’t worry).
Let him be your fantasy
38% of couples say they fantasize about their significant other but 19% say they’ve had lustful thoughts over a colleague. Recurring dreams about David Hasselhoff? Don’t panic. 38% of couples fantasize about getting it on with a celeb so it’s borderline acceptable. Almost. Had a sexy dream? Tell him about it – who knows, maybe he’ll dress up as R-Patz for you (imagine the LOLs).
