9 Things You Didn’t Know About Men and Sex

9 Things You Didn’t Know About Men and Sex

Glamour magazine celebrated a very important birthday recently…their exclusive “man survey” turned 18! The ladies at Glamour don’t hold back when it comes to asking guys everything and anything about what goes on in between their sheets, and the most recent survey was no different. 1,131 men answered their uncensored questions this time around—here are the findings that had us most surprised:


  • 13% of men have a nickname for their penis, and some are pretty creative—like Penisaurus Rex and Sean Bonery. Well done, guys, well done.
  • But what’s with the double standard? 41% of guys think it would be weird if a woman named her vagina. What, you don’t like Vagina Shmagina?!
  • Wondering if porn is affecting him when it comes to your sex life? It might! 17% of men surveyed say porn gave them unrealistic expectations about sex…but 31% say porn made them a better sex partner. Do you agree?
  • 52% of men would take a male birth control pill—46% said yes in 2011.
  • Toys in the bedroom? 70% of guys are all for it, but 30% have some catching up to do—they get worried they’re not good enough in bed if you break out a vibrating friend.
  • 79% of men admit to having fantasized about a female colleague, and 43% had fantasized about a female boss. You KNEW Gary the copy guy was looking at you weird.
  • Just friends? Not according to 31% of men, who don’t believe in platonic friendships between men and women.
  • Most guys don’t worry about their package, but of the 43% who do, most worry that they’re too small. Only 4% of men worry it’s too big…tough times!
  • 18 years ago, 43% of Glamour‘s guys said they had faked an orgasm. And thank goodness that this year only 31% said they had. Let’s make a deal, guys: we won’t if you won’t!

You mean to tell me there's such a thing as "Men" and "Sex"? I thought we had gotten past that phase being as numb as everyone is now! I thought everyone had a sensual relationship with their own self absorption, their cell phone and their car now? (hehehe..)

Is it just me? Sexual pornography bores me to hell because: 1) after you have seen one pornographic image or film you've seen them all and nothing can introduce enough novelty to overcome the trititude of the images of sex organs; 2) the events on in the images cannot tug upon my venereal strings unless they present a credible adumbration to subagitation, which they do not. Only a live sexual partner can do that.
Maybe I just have a weak imagination.

I don't think either sex should fake orgasm, just for the sake of it. If one partner is not getting pleasure out of it, then surely wouldn't it be best to find out why ?

I've got a headache, I was told, is because the male ejaculates leaving the female left having to fake it (yes dear that was lovely) leaving her frustrated, to sort herself out later.

It is not because of a lack of love, because the faking part is so not to disappoint the partner, it is however a lack of communication.

Thanks, Michael, for the education. Makes sense. I guess that really IS one thing most of us don't know about men. The usual assumption is that orgasm is the ultimate pleasure -- and goal -- so anything less falls short. If that is actually not the case, then a man shouldn't feel he has to fake it. Shows how wrong it is to assume anything!

In answer to Susan, that is a no. Men can get pleasure from the act itself and some do not splash it on all over, depending on their age and if they have had the chop or not.

Seems like it would be odd for a guy to fake an orgasm. Unless he was wearing a condom, wouldn't the partner notice a lack of, ah....the warm wet spot on the bed -- or elsewhere?

The author should refresh her knowledge of statistics: She claims 13% of men give their penises nicknames, and that 41% would find it weird if a women nicknamed her vagina.

Unless the 41% refer strictly to the 13% who do nickname, there is no double standard, as the 41% would include the 87% who don´t nickname themselves.

In any case, there is a majority of men who wouldn´t find it weird, even when their is a bigger majority of men who don´t nickname their own parts. If there was truly a double standard, it would only involve a 0, 05% of the men asked (41% of the 13%)!
