The rumors are true: Men love sex. It would be a mistake, however, to think that the ONLY thing we like about sex is actual intercourse. Sex is just one thing among the many great things that come along with intimacy.

It might be the one that gets your heart rate up the most, but it's certainly not the one and only good thing about it.

Here are 7 things men love about intimacy that women don't know:

1. Cuddling

It's true, guys like cuddling. It makes us feel big and strong and all "provide-y" to wrap a woman up in our arms. It's even better when we get to rest our hands on your boobs. It amazes me sometimes that women just have boobs all the time and aren't immediately grabbing them at every second.

2. Spending all day in bed

Getting to the point where you're both so hungry that you have to get up but you still don't want to? That's the best. Just ordering food and eating it in bed and putting on a movie? The best Saturday of your life just happened.

3. Saying things we've never said before

It's hard to say why, but guys tend to get loose lips after sex. Sometimes during that post-coital high, we get lulled into telling women things that we've never told anybody before. Acceptance is big for us, so being naked with a woman and sharing something really personal, and having her not run screaming down the street is HUGE. It's great to just bear all to someone, pun not intended.

4. Massages

Whether we're getting them or giving them, massages are awesome. Massages are also a thing to do that can lead to some seriously nice sex.

5. Showering together

A. We get to look at you all naked and soapy.

B. It saves water.

C. Women always have the best products in their showers.

D. Shower sex.

6. Laughing

I don't know why everything is five times as funny when you're naked in bed, but it is. When you get past the point of being totally embarrassed in front of someone and finally can be comfortable with them, anywhere, sex just gets five times better when you can laugh off anything that happens and talk about it after.

7. Getting breakfast

Sitting across the table from a woman who is all disheveled because we just had sex gives us such a feeling of accomplishment. And there's a meal involved! Morning sex is good, but breakfast after morning sex? No, bacon after morning sex? Top tier.
