Want to get rough in bed? Spanking might be one of the best places to start, according to recent survey by sex toy company Lovehoney.
After polling more than 4,500 people about their favourite kinks, they found that 70 per cent of women and 61 per cent of men are turned on by spanking during sex.
She might be into it because she just likes the way it make her feel both physically and emotionally, Dr Carol Queen, author of Exhibitionism for the Shy has explained to us in the past.
Spanking can stimulate nerve endings in her vagina—you just have to make contact with the right spot. “You want to be over flesh or muscle, not bone,” Queen explains. “Aim for the lower part of the butt; that engages more nerves and makes it more enjoyable.”
And if you’re up for it, letting her spank you might feel just as good. (It’s not clear whether men are turned on by being spanked or doing the spanking. We’re going to go ahead and assume both are likely.)
About 60 per cent of both men and women also reported that they’ve tried BDSM with a partner, the survey found. Nearly 60 per cent of women also said they regularly engage in nipple play, bondage, biting and blindfolds. (Here are nine secret erogenous zones she’s dying for you to touch.)
