How great would it be to know exactly where and how and when your lover wants to be ravished by you? You could - if you just knew how to translate those moans and moves. Well, here it is, guys, a crash course on what her nonverbal bedroom behavior really means.
The Sighs Have It
Presuming your lover isn't rehearsing lines for her upcoming porn movie, it's probably safe to say that all those delicious moans and groans mean something. Usually something along the lines of "Ooh, yes, that" or "Oh, ouch, stop!" Pay attention to the quivers, sighs, and moans that will show you what's working and what's not.
If you notice, say, your woman suddenly craning her neck sideways and burrowing her face into the pillow, it could be because she's into that erotic asphyxiation thing...but it's much more likely that she's offering up her sensitive neck for you to nibble on. Pay attention to those little details - like a backside that rises to meet your caress, or a breast that shudders at the touch of your hand.
Follow Her Lead
What does she do when she's trying to turn you on? If you notice she worships a particular part of your body, you might want to gauge her reaction when you reciprocate. And don't be surprised when your actions are met with great enthusiasm.
The Eyes Have It
Women love the whole eye-gazing thing; it's a sign of connection. So if she's turning away or staring vacantly over your shoulder, it may be time to try something else. The exception? When she's building up to her passion peak - then the closed eyes and far-off expression are most definitely a good thing.
Lend a Hand
Lovers who are uneasy vocally expressing their desires in bed often take a hands-on approach. Pay attention to how she's touching you - when she's happy she'll reward you with more pressure. Grabbing, pushing, and scratching are signs you're doing something right (just remember what it is!). If she's redirecting your hands to a particular area of her body, make sure you file that neighborhood as one of her favorites. And visit often.
