Now that you know what both men and women want in bed, it’s time to ask yourself if you know what else your spouse wants. An article by The Huffington Post poses the question: “…how much do you really know about your spouse’s sexual desires?” And really, unless you’ve taken the time to engage in a discussion on sexual desires, it is possible everything you know is an assumption. Suddenly the phrase from the old MTV series Diary pops into my head, because based on my interpretation of this particular article, “You think you know, but you have no idea.”
This week iVillage released the findings from their “2013 Married Sex Survey.” The findings, for the most part, are all quite interesting. Among them being that:
- The number one turn on for women was “feelings of love for their partner.” This ranked number two for men.
- 68 % of men married their “best sexual partner” while only 45% of women did.
- We aren’t as attune to how satisfied our partners are in the bedroom as we might think. According to the study 79 % of men thought their wives were pleased with their sex life’s but only 61% of women reported being such. On the other hand 79 % of husbands were happy although only 55% of women thought they were.
What are your thoughts on these findings? Do any of them surprise you? In lieu of the survey perhaps more couples will take the time to check in with their partner from time to time and ask them what it is they really want when it comes to their sex life.
