First things first: Men don’t really need to hear anything. (By the time we’re naked, we’re not really dwelling on the quality of the conversation.) That said, there’s no harm in making a full-frontal moment even more blissful by boosting your guy’s confidence or revealing something sexy about yourself. Arousal is driven by the brain, after all. So words that put us in a sexier frame of mind can lead to very pleasant results. The next time your man bares all, try one (or all) of these hot lines.
“I want you.” We probably wouldn’t be in this situation if we weren’t already about to have sex, but it’s nice to know that you’re still interested now that you’ve seen our pale thighs and spotty chest hair.
“Your chest/stomach/back is amazing.” Hey, we’re not working out for our health. Well, actually we are working out for our health, but we’re also working out because we want you to notice the little muscles sprouting up under our skin.
“There’s not an imperfection on your body.” If you can’t figure out exactly where to direct your compliment, this Hail Mary approach works just fine. Actually, it works even better.
“Tell me what you like.” This tells us that you’re willing to try new things, and that you want our sex life to be experimental. And trust me—if you try your guy’s kinky suggestions, he’ll try yours.
“That’s one handsome penis.” There’s something about an absurd compliment that feels totally sincere, like there’s no possible way you’re just quoting something you heard in a romcom. So feel free: We accept all forms of bizarre flattery relating to any part of our body or sexual performance. Plus you’ll introduce a little humor, and that’s never a bad thing.
“You can do whatever you want.” A line like this is guaranteed to make a man’s mind wander to some amazing places. Of course—only say it if you mean it (and totally trust this guy).
“I have a condom.” There’s not a damn thing wrong with a woman who can take charge of her sexual health. It lets us know that when we sleep with you, we’re not sleeping with all the other men you’ve slept with.
“You feel so good inside me.” The average guy knows he’s working with average sized equipment. But he wants to believe that he’s using that equipment in such an extraordinary way that you’re never left wishing he had another inch or two to work with. So yeah, a little reassurance is nice.
“Oh oh oh!” Because—like I said—90 percent of the time, we don’t even really need lots of compliments. In those cases, an enthusiastic moan will do wonders.
