5 Things Women Do in the Bedroom That Really Turn Men Off (From the Stir)

5 things you're doing the bedroom that are probably turn-offsIf you're wondering why your romps in the sack aren't as hot as they should be, it might be something you're doing. Yep, it's not them, it's you.

I know, I know YOU'RE perfect in bed, but hey, it's still worth cross-checking your bedroom behaviors with my handy checklist. Who knows? Maybe your partner is just being nice by not saying anything.

1. The sound of silence: It's a fantastic Simon and Garfunkel song but not great in the bedroom. For one, your partner will have absolutely no idea if what he's doing is actually working for you. And for another, sounds (of the right kind) as well as talking, can be really hot.

2. Dead weight: Sex is much more fun when you're into it and actually interacting with your partner. If you're just laying there like a sack of potatoes, they're certainly not going to enjoy it and quite frankly you aren't either. Move your hips, arch your back, and get into it. 

3. Woe is me: Lack of self-confidence in the bedroom can be a huge turnoff. But I'm the first to admit that after having kids, I sometimes don't feel as great about my body as I used to. So, turn off the lights, pop on some lingerie so all your bits and pieces aren't hanging out. Just don't be embarrassed about how you look.

4. Broken record: Your boring sex routine is, well, boring, and your partner knows you're just going through the motions. In fact, it might actually appear that you're just trying to get things over with. Flip that record over. Or play it backwards.

5. What not to wear: I'm all for comfy nightgowns and pajamas, but those old ratty things you're wearing aren't doing you any good. If you're not into sleeping naked, then grab a few cute two-piece camisole and short sets, or a flattering slip. They don't need to cost a lot, but you can still look sexy AND be comfortable.

What are your biggest bedroom turn-offs?

My biggest turn off is man socks. Do Not get into bed with just socks on.

For me it's when they sweat really bad.

Gross breath is a killer for me. No early morning quicky until those teeth are brushed!

Interesting.

I can't stand farting in bed or when my husband gets turned up and pokes me in the leg repeatedly (you know that I am talking about).

I call bull spit on that article! it is him, all him, all his fault! I guess I'm too picky. it grosses me out that he will get up in the morning to take a shower and go to work for 14 hours and then come home and want to crawl into bed filthy. I also hate that his idea of foreplay is to grab a boob pinch it once and then rub my b*** a few times and say we roll over. what the bleep is that? really? so yeah, I'm going to be quiet and lay there like a sack of potatoes and wait till it's over because its boring.

...ohh.... our sex is amazing. Everytime.. Just do what you're comfortable doing. If you don't like how he is starting or finishing CHANGE IT! You try something different. Don't like socks? Ask him to take them off. Only like socks? Ask him to put them on. Want him fresh and clean in bed? Tell him... Do it in a sexy way though... Like... tell him you want to take a shower... with him. Then you can wash him yourself. then you get your clean man and you both get turned on!

You lay there like a corpse, don't make a sound, act like sex is a chore maybe it's because your husband is a lousy lover and has gained lots of weight, gropes you, sweats like a pig, has poor hygiene etc.  

It's his fault not your's!  Maybe too if he wants you to be nice to him in bed at night he should treat you nice during the day.  Being a nasty SOB during the day then expecting you to be a sex kitten at night is treating you like a $20 whore.

Above was my life 15 years ago. No wonder we divorced.  A man has to do his part too.
