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!

Men only think they can fake it. I have a husband with multiple personalities-I swear! He's confident.A CEO. he's shy.He's mystical.He's exciting.He's ordinary.He's playful. He got the IQ of a turnip. He's a genius. Every few weeks,I'm torn between leaving him and throwing him off a building after he's has arsenic in his tea.And yes-he has a nickname.And he has named every part of me. After 42 years,he still gets jealous. I was approached by GOOD Grief. I didn't fill in anything but my actual age,height,and $ requirements. The old boot leather that was thrown back in my direction? They-Each and every one (I have now seen + 120 pictures, )describe themselves as :
Fit.Toned.Above average physically. Then they list everything from scuba diving to mountain climbing as activities they prefer. All of them swear they exercise 3-4 times a week. 25% are never married at age 62. The rest are divorced. Rarely will they say what they earn. As to their requirements in a woman?
95% want her to be fit,lean,above average,toned,active, 40-60 and happy to cook and clean .I was shocked at first. Did everyone age that badly? Is that THE picture he picked to catch the woman for his next 20 years?? And -did they not own spell check or a dictionary or a brain?
I found 3-that if I was desperate,sounded like they might not mug me in a dark alley.
But still-in many-no most ways,my husband was 4 of those guys tied together and he comes with his original bumper,if you know what I mean

Hilarious. The only thing a man thinks of as a toy in the bedroom is -a woman.

How on earth can a man fake it?

Lol - According to the market research I've done over the years,
41% of men certainly did not give a hoot whether I had a nickname
for my vagina or not. In fact, if I recall rightly, they all enjoyed the
fact that we women have our own pet names so to speak! :-)
I say the survey is inaccurate!

Thanks for the article. The comments are at least as entertaining, too.

Size shouldn't matter so long as you know how to use it. It's a scientific fact that women don't experience vaginal orgasm as much as they do in outlying areas surrounding the vagina. And, there is more than just one "spot." As in many areas of life, half of the fun is just getting there.
