It's totally normal for women to want to please their man with what he enjoys in the bedroom... but have you ever thought about what he doesn't like?
According to Femail's sex and relationships expert Tracey Cox, there's plenty of things women do during sex that men find a total turn off.
So allow us to share with you the ten things that consistently top his hate list…
- Suggesting you watch porn together... then hating his reaction to it...
Lots of couples enjoy watching porn together, but if you're going to try it, don't take it as an insult if he's more interested in what's happening on the screen.
- Being too noisy when others can hear
There's no denying men love a bit of moaning and groaning, but screaming and thrashing about is actually quite scary for them... and also a tad embarrassing. Another issue is being too noisy, too soon. Over-exaggerated moans from the get-go makes him certain you're faking it.
- Lying back and taking it
The 'dead starfish' position gives off the impression that you alone should be enough of a turn on without having to put in any work.
- Going to the loo just before sex and not washing afterwards
Apparently men find this gross.
- Scratching his back
While it always looks super sexy in films, scratching your fingernails down his back actually just hurts him... and comes across a tad overdramatic.
- Being too self conscious about your body
We all have our insecurities, but only having sex while covered up or with the lights off majorly impacts his visual enjoyment. It also often means you won't try more adventurous positions.
- Only liking the missionary position
Men struggle to keep their desires high when you're making love in the same position every single time.
- Telling him when to orgasm
This is never a win-win situation. Asking him to hold off will just make him anxious and paranoid he'll ejaculate pre-maturely. Telling him to orgasm now sounds like you're saying 'could you hurry up and finish?'.
- Only dressing up when you go out
Men are visual creatures and really do appreciate it if you make an effort in the looks department. Nothing frustrates a man more than when you come home from work in heels and pencil skirts looking hot and sexy, but the minute you're through the door on comes the tracksuit.
- Agreeing to have sex then acting like you've done him a huge favour
Sex is supposed to be mutually pleasurable: find ways to do things differently so it is enjoyable for you too.
