10 Things He Actually Thinks About While You’re Having Sex

Even if you’ve been dating your man for ages, it’s impossible to tell what he’s thinking while getting down. You can obviously narrow it down, because there are a few things that typically pop into the male mind during intimate times. Don’t worry, because it’s all positive.

  1. How hot you look. Even though you’re worried about the weird pimple on your chest, he isn’t paying any attention to it. All he’s thinking about is how hot you look on top (or underneath) him. He’s only paying attention to your positive traits, so you should do the same.
  2. How to avoid reaching your peak. We all know that it’s much easier for men to get there than it is for us. That’s why he’ll think about his chores, his favorite baseball team, or anything else he can to avoid coming too soon. It’s a delicate process, because he doesn’t want his random thoughts to cause him to lose his ability, either.
  3. How to make you come. Finishing isn’t his main goal, because he wants to make you come before he does. Of course, that sounds easier than it looks, which is why he’ll spend the majority of intercourse trying to figure out what makes you tick.
  4. If he should try something risky. He can’t help the nagging at the back of his mind that tells him to slip a finger into your bottom or call you names. He might not actually go through with the idea, but it’ll definitely pop into his mind.
  5. If he should switch positions. If he takes too long to switch positions, then you’ll get bored. If he switches positions too often, then you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a circus act. That’s why he’s always trying to find the perfect balance.
  6. How tired he is. If he’s been doing most of the work, he’s going to run out of energy eventually. That’s why he’ll either ask you to take over or he’ll start freaking out about how much he’s sweating. You’re not the only one who’s worried about looking unattractive, you know.
  7. What you’re thinking. He’s just as curious about what’s on your mind as you are about his mind. That’s why you two should do each other a favor and just blurt out how you feel. It’ll make it hotter.
  8. How much noise you’re making. If he has a roommate or still lives with his parents, he’s going to be worried about the bed making noise. Even though he’s proud to sleep with you, he doesn’t want to wake up the entire house with his headboard banging and mattress squeaking.
  9. How amazing (or awful) his performance is. If you start moaning, he’ll think he’s a god. When you make a strange face, he’ll wonder if you just want it to be over with. His opinion of himself changes with your reactions.
  10. How lucky he is. Even if you think the act sucks, he’s just happy that he has a woman to sleep with for the night. It beats using his right hand.
