12 Things Guys Do That Totally Kill The Mood

When it comes to sex, all genders are from different planets. While men are pretty much down to do it any time, anywhere, most women need to be in the right mood. We need foreplay in order to enjoy ourselves to the fullest, and unfortunately, sometimes the tiniest thing can completely destroy any momentum that was building. Even if guys aren’t doing it on purpose, there are some things they do that never fail to kill the mood.

  1. Asking for sex. Online dating and apps like Tinder have made it acceptable to just come out and say, “Sex?” Sure, it may save time, but seduction seems to be a dying art, and that’s good for no one.
  2. Farting. Either the sound will make us burst out laughing, or the smell will have us dry heaving. Neither one of those things are conducive to getting in the mood.
  3. Begging/whining. Playing the guilt card is never the way to go. The second the pouty lip comes out and, “Pleeeease, I’m going to have blue balls!” leaves his mouth, we’re out.
  4. The jackhammer thing. Hard and fast might work in some situations, but if that’s the only weapon he has in his arsenal, we’re going to get bored, and fast.
  5. Skipping foreplay. For women, foreplay is almost always a necessary part of fully enjoying sex. If he tries to go straight for the main event, we’re going to wonder if he knows anything about woman whatsoever.
  6. Being a terrible kisser. Making out is a great way to get in the mood and test out the chemistry before you really commit and start ditching the clothes. If he’s too slobbery, uses too much tongue, or pecks at our face like he’s afraid of a real kiss, chances are we won’t be too excited to go any further.
  7. Asking a million times if you’re close. Once we’re on the road to an orgasm, we have to focus or we could lose it. There’s nothing more distracting than a guy who keeps stopping to see if he’s on the right track. DUDE, I was, until you completely changed what you were doing.
  8. Talking way too much. Some dirty talk is welcome, but we don’t need an explicit play-by-play of everything that’s happening. And you just never know when you’ve gone too far until it’s too late. One tip: avoid any “daddy” imagery.
  9. Lasting two minutes. Even with a lot of foreplay, we’re going to need a little more than a couple minutes to fully get into it. Girls are an understanding bunch, but if he’s a two pump chump on a regular basis, it’s going to put a damper on things.
  10. Choosing the worst music. No, we don’t want to listen to Eminem rapping about his drug addicted ex-wife while we have sex. Anything with distracting lyrics isn’t ideal, because we’ll end up focusing on that instead of what you’re doing.
  11. Groping. They’re boobs. And they’re attached. Some guys don’t realize boobs aren’t merely there for their enjoyment, and that a little finesse would go a long way.
  12. Not reciprocating oral sex. If we’ve just put a lot of effort into giving him a great blow job, and he says something like “I’d return the favour, but it’s not really my thing,” we’ll be out of there so fast he’ll see skid marks.
