Men will eat 3-day old pizza with their mates on a boys’ retreat, but it seems they are still visually stimulated when it comes to matters between the sheets.
“Cosplay”, lace and all the frills are not just important to South African men, it is a mandatory pre-requisite for 86% of our hot-blooded males.
We eat with our eyes first
Launching an online survey during the lockdown may have swayed most of the voting. Lockdown seems to have everyone craving something we’re not allowed to have.
For those on the more adventurous side, it may have heightened sexual experiences with your partners. Posting the question on a Facebook poll recently, a whopping 86% of the male respondents were adamant that lingerie a necessity in their sex lives.
It shows you’re physically attracted to your partner
Only 14% of women admitted to making an effort with something a little risqué in the bedroom. Most of the men polled view this as disinterest and a lack of physical attraction.
Men don’t care about your physical insecurities
The women polled were not completely confident with their physical appearance. Something the male voters did not focus on. It’s more about the effort you’ve made to turn up the temperature between the two of you.
Turns waning arousal into heated passion
Relationships all go through a lull. It’s not that you no longer love your person, but you can lose interest in seeing them naked. You adjust to a routine. Things become monotonous and pretty soon, your active sex life hits a slump.
When you don’t look your best, chances are you don’t feel your best. You don’t even look like you’re interested in having them all over you. Most of the gents polled feel their partners are disinterested in experimenting or getting past their body insecurities.
Enough with the insecurities
The key takeaway from the poll is that men are not concerned about a woman’s body flaws. Stretch marks, cellulite, “mom-belly”, love-handles, none of these matter to a man who is aroused and ready to please. South African men love curvy women.
Over 73% of the men polled did not mind splurging on lingerie for their partners if it meant a confidence boost or to get them in the mood. A good 54% bought lingerie as gifts to their partners, reaffirming that they want to do everything possible to keep their sex lives strong.
