Welcome to the pleasure dome
Ladies, you’ve been slacking. Unfortunately, the bedroom is still a place where the men tend to dominate in a heterosexual relationship, according to dating expert Amber Madison.
“We tend to look at sex as this male thing,” she says. “It’s like, ‘If I’m pissed at him, I’m not having sex with him.’ It’s looked at as this reward for a man rather than a relationship thing.”
Madison recently published her book “Are All Guys A—holes?,” in which she did field research — interviewing 1,000 guys in 10 cities. What she found was surprising. She asked men if they liked hearing feedback from women in the bedroom and found that 58 percent of them love it.
“Women should take more responsibility for their sexual pleasure and figure out what feels good for them and make sure in the bedroom that they communicate that,” she says.
The sex and dating expert has recently endorsed the new “We-Vibe 3” — a couples’ vibrator that lacks the intimidation factor that can steer the squeamish away.
“One of the things with the We-Vibe brand is to be a discreet product,” says Sarah Bobas, the marketing and communications manager at We-Vibe. “You don’t want to walk in with something that off the bat makes your partner feel threatened. [The We-Vibe] enables us to get into the conversation without people getting shy or intimidated about what we’re talking about, which is just sexual intimacy, being closer to your partner.”
