11 Sex things guys are way too proud of (NSFW)

Would you like a medal with that?

For some reason, it seems to be a thing that men expect to be rewarded for every little gesture during sex that isn't completely selfish. Look, I'm not saying that being selfless and generous in the bedroom is necessarily a bad thing - heck, I think we could all agree we'd like some more of that, thank you very much!

But it seems like some men who aren't solely focused on their own pleasure thinks he's God's gift to women or that they deserve a freaking medal for every good sex deed they perform. No, that's just called being a good partner, fellas.

Here are eleven sex things guys get way too proud over.


1. Being 'cool' with whatever situation you've got going on down there

I get that you're trying to be all accepting of my personal hygiene routine and not be a douche, but we don't actually do any of this for you and it definitely doesn't require your approval.

2. Letting you know it's okay if you don't want to 'lick their lollypop'

Yeah, I already know I don't have to do anything I don't want to but thanks for giving me permission, buddy.

3. When you ask them what they like and they respond with "I like whatever you like"

Or even worse, "I just like turning you on ...". THIS IS NOT AN ANSWER!! Chances are, if we're asking you this question it's because we actually want to know what you like. Shocking, I know. Please just tell us what turns you on so this experience can be good for BOTH of us.

4. Going 'down there' for approximately 10 seconds

So it's great that you've realised oral is something that feels pretty amazing for most women but for the love of god, please don't act like you're God's gift to women just because you did the bare minimum. If you're going to go down there at all, actually make it count dude!

5. Making a big deal of saying "I love it when you 'get there'..."

No sh*t, Sherlock. I'm pretty sure most people love it when they give their partners enjoyment in that area.

6. Pausing mid-way to stare into your eyes and tell you "you're so pretty."

This tells me you've probably watched WAY too many movie sex scenes and while I get that you may think this is super romantic and sweet, it doesn't always rarely makes women melt and instantly fall in love with you AND WANT TO HAVE ALL YOUR BABIES LIKE RIGHT NOW.

7. Realising your boobs exist

Congratulations, you've finally worked out that women like having attention paid to this area!

8. How long they can last

Okay, we get it. You've got lots of stamina. *Slow clap*. But we're an hour into this now and I think my lady bits have permanently lost all feeling.

9. Realising your 'magic bean' exists

Yep, it's there. But just rubbing it for an hour while ignoring every other part of our body isn't going to make us magically get there. It takes a little bit more effort than that, okay?

10. Marathon oral sessions, just to prove a point

You'd think this would be good, but it's been a good twenty minutes now and you're more than ready to just move on to something else but he insists on making you get there first. You're fighting a losing battle there, buddy. If it hasn't happened by now, it's probably not going to happen at all.

11. Size/girth/shape/whatever of their bits

It's how you use it that really matters.
