While some scenarios depicted on Game of Thrones do correspond to the sexual tenets of medieval-ish times (the chicks were pretty hot), many do not. A band of marauding lords bent on rear entry, while a nice thought, seems unlikely at that time since the Church, the tastemaker of the day, was very hot on what came to be known as the missionary position. Prostitution was not the glamorous and lucrative career it is now, and was not that prevalent, nor that well lit.
"If sports are big in your life, this will take you into a ton of subtopics," Sullivan says. Ask what sports she's interested in, what teams she roots for, and if she played sports in college. Depending on her answer, you can see whether you're up for some healthy competition or standing behind the same teams. And if she doesn't care, then you can decide whether it's a slight turn off or a deal breaker.
8) “Can you talk to our daughter about her C in math?”
The reason it freaks you out: There’s an implication that you wouldn’t think to do this yourself, which threatens your standing as a parent, says Cole. People are also very sensitive to tone of voice, and if we hear a negative intonation—as this question is often delivered from a frustrated parent—we’re likely to get defensive, he adds.
"Generally speaking, it may seem hot to get a bunch of your friends together and start fking, but most people find themselves getting shy when the reality of the situation," says Lux Alptraum, the editor of Fleshbot. Forget about the parties—undergrads are barely even getting laid. Twenty-five percent of college students in the United States are virgins. And among those who are most sexually active, says La Salle University sociologist Kathleen Bogle, "most have sex with just one person in a typical year."
The best response: “The color brings out your eyes, and it hugs you in all the right places.” Remedy the oversight by giving her more than the expected response. And next time, tell her you love how she looks in the dress as soon as you head out for the evening, advises Cole. Even if you have no idea if the garment is new, she’s just asking you to take notice. One characteristic of successful couples is they regularly say more positive things to one another, which cancels the need for her to ask any validation-seeking questions, he adds.
This might seem basic, but the answer can reveal a lot about a person’s personality type. For instance, if they hate their job but are doing something to try and get a new one, that’s a good sign they aren’t going to be bitter and terrible and pessimistic. It also shows they have ambition, which, if that’s what you're into, is great! Or maybe they don’t care much about their job at all, because work is something they just do to fund their personal life. In any case, you want to get a sense for how much work factors into a person’s life pretty early on.
There is little for you to gain by telling your date everything about yourself. Much more can be gained by being a good questioner, listener, and observer. To get the most benefit, do not split your attention between what they are saying and what you are thinking. You’ll miss too much. There will be plenty of time for evaluation later. Actually, your subconscious mind will do the evaluation and give you an answer via your intuition, or gut feelings. To learn about how to use your intuition, read this article entitled, “Intuition How to Access, Recognize, & Trust It.”
When you ask this question, smile big and make sure she takes this as an invitation for lighthearted banter. If she's open to it, this can be a great foray into hilarious stories you two can share about the funny process of dating. It’s important that you share your own dating anecdotes, so she knows that you two have both shared these experiences. If you do that, you can almost guarantee that this date will rise above the others.
The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom advocates a "safe, sane, and consensual sexual expression" on the part of all Fetishers. "We find that that is a great guide to use, because it can really be a touchstone for whether you're crossing the line," says NCSF spokesperson Susan Wright. "So you can flog somebody, pain somebody to blood, as long as you, you know, make sure to clean it with antiseptic and cover it up, make sure that there's no infection happening. But you can't cut somebody's finger off. That's going too far."
Human resource professionals use strategic questions to get people to talk about themselves in a way where they unwittingly reveal key aspects of their character. Questions like these, used in a date setting, can also be revealing as well as lead to stimulating conversation. You can keep them from sounding like interview questions by presenting them playfully in a game-like way. Also, talk about the dating questions with the understanding that you will answer each of them yourself.
The best response: “You’re the most generous, giving person I’ve ever met, and that makes me love you more and more every day.” Instead of complimenting her looks—which will make her nervous your feelings will change when things start to drop—focus on affirming why you love the parts that won’t change: She’s a wonderful mother, has the best sense of humor, and makes one mean pot of chili.
But why can her questions rile you up so easily? Your instinct to blow a gasket or storm off is biological: “Men’s bodies are hardwired to be hyper-reactive to stress and danger, but modern danger is no longer a ferocious tiger—it’s the pissed-off wife or girlfriend,” says Jamie Turndorf, ., author of Kiss Your Fights Goodbye. When she comes at you with touchy topics, your body sees danger, which involuntarily triggers your fight-or-flight response, she explains. To sail smoothly through any line of questioning, be ready with these smart responses.
Sounds like you touched a nerve, both with modern medicine and inside your wife! What I mean is, the pelvic area has four nervous pathsays through which orgasms travel, and different sex positions can and will stimulate these different channels. The kind of deeper penetration that I think you're describing would likely take you up into the vagina's posterior fornix, thereby rousing the hypogastric plexus and furnishing your wife with her chosen orgasm.
If there's one thing that can ruin a first date and ensure a woman's first impression of you is a bad one, it's crappy conversation. You need ice breakers, light-hearted queries, questions that provoke banter, laughter, and thought, as well as questions that dig a bit deeper and go beyond the superficial. To save you from endless awkward silences, we've compiled 55 first date conversation starters that do all of these things. Plus, they're backed by professionals who know what they're talking about.
The best response: “I’m feeling a little overwhelmed right now. Can we take 85 minutes and then talk about this again?” When that primitive fight-or-flight kicks in, men become flooded with overwhelming emotion faster than women, causing them to shell up, says Cole. Most of the time, women don’t realize this and think you walking out of the room or clamming up means you don’t care. Tell her you need time to cool off or think things through, but you aren’t avoiding the issue.
It might seem super particular, but her morning routine is hugely revealing. Does she wake up, get ready, and rush to work with minutes to spare? Does she wake up, lounge around, read a newspaper, then get ready for work? Or does she meditate, go for a six-mile run, shower, and make a gourmet breakfast before heading out the door? These scenarios are snapshots of three incredibly different people and personality types.
Nor surprisingly, animals tend to be somewhat animalistic in their tastes: Lionesses like big, tough lions, bears like big, tough bears, and hamsters, if memory serves, will take anything. Generally animals go for qualities that connote strength and good genes. "When it comes down to it," says Dave Salmoni, and host of ABC's Expedition Impossible , "the male deer that is able to beat the shit out of all the other mates, he gets all the girls."
Pain is a factor, as is pleasure, but there's no one word to accurately describe the appeal of the erotic spanking. "I think it has more to do with the delightful sting and the delightful warmth and the delightful vibrations that it sends through the whole region," says Gloria Brame, and coauthor of Different Loving: the World of Sexual Dominance & Submission. Like I said, the only word to describe it is delightful.
For example, if your guy likes playing the guitar and you are not musically inclined in the least, invite him to show you a couple of chords sometime or ask him to play something for you. If you’re an avid knitter and your guy has no interest in knitting, offer to show him something you made or give him some strange knitting trivia he likely wouldn’t know. The right kind of guy doesn’t have to like what you like, but he does have to like you (and all of your interesting little tidbits as well).
Ian Kerner, sex counselor and author of She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman , suggests "getting a book on erotic massage and some massage oils," but we both know that's not going to happen, so another thing "a guy can do," he says, "is tell her some pretty hot fantasies that play into themes that [you think] women are interested in—whether it's voyeurism, sex with another person, submission, domination…"
