80 percent of us indulge in word play during sex.
When it comes to getting frisky between the sheets, do you spice up the action by letting some naughty words slip out? If not, you may want to join the legions of Americans who are using dirty talk to mix things up in the bedroom.
A recent survey by adult toy company Adam & Eve revealed that 80 percent of Americans engage in naughty word play while having sex. How often are we whispering (or, if you're really into it, yelling) these kinky phrases? Only 12 percent admitted that it is "always" a part of sex, while the majority—33 percent—sometimes talk dirty. Meanwhile, 29 percent rarely include naughty words in their sexual routines.
We know that naughty words can catch a man of guard in the best way possible, and that many men view women who talk dirty as self confident. But unfortunately, though it can truly heighten the sexual experience, 20 percent of the 1,000 adults surveyed don't partake in dirty talk at all.
But if you're a fan of sex toys, you may be a bit above the "average" American. Only 10 percent of Adam & Eve's Facebook fans say they never use dirty talk, while more than one quarter say it's always present in the bedroom.
If you'd like to use your words to spice things up in the sack, don't be embarrassed. Start small, and base your feisty follow ups on how your partner reacts. Each man has a different taste, but you'll definitely steam up your love making with a bit of sexy talk while doing the deed.
