The sex things men tell their friends about
If you think that women are the only ones who talk to their friends about their relationships and sex things, you’re wrong. Men do too.
Whether you were a one-night stand, casually hooking up, newly dating, or in a long term relationship, chances are your man has told his friends some sex things about you. 900 men in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 49 were surveyed, asked about what they were comfortable sharing with their bros.
And despite all the stereotypes that paint men as the football-obsessed, one-dimensional, push-those-feelings-down gender, most of the guys (69 percent) said they were open to talking about personal issues like love, relationships, sex things and health. Close to a third said they’d like to be even more open and honest with their friends, while only a few said they don’t divulge personal details at all. And this applies to conversations about sex things of course.
But talking about sex things for men is different than how women do it. While men may occasionally have the communication skills of ATMs and the emotional agility of limbless baboons, there are things they can teach women. For instance, they think it is not always necessary to divulge every single sordid detail about what happened Friday night and all the sex things you did in detail. Women are prone to sex things confessions that would make most men screech.
But which and how many sex things do men exactly share about their love lives with their friends?
How often you have sex with your partner does matter for your physical and mental wellbeing. It is also a huge factor in keeping a relationship healthy and happy. If you’re “F-ing like rabbits” everyday or not having sex at all, your man is definitely telling his friends how often (or not often) he’s getting it. Of course men will probably brag to his boys if you’re banging quite often. And if you haven’t had sex in a while, that’s another discussion entirely that he’ll seek the advice of his friends for.
Guys like to remind each other that they are sexually active, so sometimes, they will just literally talk to each other about the fact that they have indeed, recently put their penis inside a vagina or mouth or butt. They don’t even name names.
For many guys, getting a girl to orgasm is rarer than a patty of steak tartare with a golden ticket nestled underneath it. So if they can accomplish this once, let alone numerous times, it’s definitely the type of message that they like deliver to the bros with a trumpet-led-introduction.
I’ll leave this one pretty vague. There isn’t really one set thing about an ass that men habitually comment on, it’s just sort of the “Reader’s Digest” version of their interpretation. A nice comparison would be wine tasting. There are a lot of the same components in play. Shape, complexion, legs, aroma and even aftertaste.
Guys do talk about other women. Some guys go on about “the things they’d do with…” Some of them love to tell the so called near-miss stories, which always involve an incredibly hot single woman and end with “I was so close…” , even if his friends realize halfway through one of these stories that the woman wasn’t coming on to him at all; she was just paying attention to him and being nice.
Did they get to try anal sex? Did they tie their girlfriend up? Did their girlfriend tie them up? Then they’re essentially a 5-year-old with a juicy secret and they need to tell someone immediately. Hopefully one of their friends, but also maybe the garbage man or a stranger they see on the street.
How many people can a man even conceivably pleasure at once? It doesn’t matter. In men’s dreams, every appendage is a penis made up of other penises, and they’re just dick-monsters intercoursing all the women.
Sharing your regularly scheduled porn is weird, even if the porn is really, really good. It’s fine to talk about your favorite porn stars, but telling a friend which scenes you’ve specifically masturbated to ruins it for everyone. However, weird porn is fine. If you ever accidentally clicked on a video of a man dressed as a giant baby or a woman having sex with a guy in an E.T. costume, it’s fine to share. That happens to everyone and it’s OK.
