Not long ago, we delved into the deepest secrets of our female readers, uncovering their favourite fantasies and the intriguing experiences that followed, ranging from triumphant successes to unexpected surprises. Now, it's the gents' turn to spill the beans!

In the spirit of openness and curiosity, we've invited our male readers to share their most clandestine desires. While some fantasies, like threesomes or escapades in unusual places, might sound familiar, brace yourselves for some more unexpected and juicy revelations.

1. Anal sex

Anal play, often seen as uncharted or taboo territory, holds a prominent place in the male erotic imagination. According to a Women’s Health poll, about 36.5% of women have experimented with anal play with their partner. But what about the rest?

The influence of pornography on male fantasies is undeniable. The frequent portrayal of anal penetration in adult films might lead some men to believe that this practice is commonplace. However, the reality is more nuanced and personal.

Paul, a 27-year-old reader, shares his experience: "I've always been curious about anal play. My girlfriend was initially hesitant, but one day, for a special occasion, we decided to give it a try. To our surprise, she really enjoyed the experience! We don't do it regularly, but sometimes, when she's in the mood..."
If you're intrigued by experimenting with anal play, it's crucial to approach the topic delicately and openly with your partner. Enthusiastic consent and patience are key to a successful and enjoyable experience for both parties.

For those eager to learn more about how to approach this practice safely and respectfully, we invite you to check out our comprehensive guide on anal play. This guide offers practical advice and essential information for a fulfilling exploration that respects each partner's desires.

2. Spanking

Spanking, a fantasy that mixes submission with intense physical stimulation, holds an intriguing spot in male desires. For some, the appeal of spanking lies in the desire to be dominated by their partner, exploring a more passive role, and being guided in intimate moments.

Physically, spanking increases blood flow to the buttocks, creating tingling sensations and arousal. This unique form of stimulation can turn the sexual experience into something more intense and dynamic.
Oliver, 35, shares his experience: "I had never really thought about asking for a spanking, but the idea secretly excited me. One night, I decided to try it with my partner, and it was incredibly sexy! Since then, she doesn't hesitate to give me playful spanks during our encounters. It has really amplified our sensations."

If the idea of receiving a spanking intrigues you, it's vital to openly discuss this desire with your partner.

For those looking to learn more about how to engage in spanking safely and enjoyably, we recommend checking out our dedicated guide. Our practical guide on spanking is filled with tips and advice for incorporating this practice into your intimate life while respecting each other's boundaries and comfort.

3. Sleeping with a prostitute

For some men, the fascination with this fantasy is rooted in the thrill of power and permission, where the usual rules of intimate relationships don't apply.

This fantasy might also arise from a hesitance towards romantic intimacy. Engaging with an escort allows for the exploration of sexual desires without the emotional entanglements that typically come with a relationship. It offers a space to voice desires that might seem too bold or unconventional in a regular partnership.

Mark, 52, recounts his journey: "I finally gave in to this fantasy. The sex was exciting, but the experience left me with a sense of emptiness. It was starkly different from being with a regular partner, where mutual desire is the driving force, not financial incentive."
For those curious about this fantasy but not keen on turning it into reality, role-playing with a willing partner can be a tantalising alternative. Suggesting that your partner takes on the role of an escort can be a safe and respectful way to delve into this fantasy.

4. Voyeurism

Voyeurism, the fantasy of watching others in their amorous escapades, can take various forms: observing another couple making love, listening to distant encounters, or even hearing about sexual experiences. While the idea might seem odd to some, it's important to remember that watching pornography is, in itself, a form of voyeurism. Thus, this fantasy is more common than many might think.

This desire is often driven by the quest for a different sexual experience, a way to experience sexuality from a new and thrilling perspective. Voyeurism offers a unique viewpoint, a thrill that comes from observation without direct participation.

Nolan, 45, shares his experience: "I've always been intrigued by the idea of watching another couple. The opportunity arose during a weekend with friends. After a lively evening, I asked a couple if I could join them in their room. The experience was incredibly exhilarating for all of us, though it did lead to a rather awkward atmosphere at breakfast the next day!"
For those looking to explore voyeurism, it's advisable to avoid involving friends in this venture. Instead, consider turning to specialised dating apps. These platforms can help find couples open to sharing this experience in a consensual and safe environment.

5. Watching his partner sleep with another woman

The fantasy of watching one's partner with another woman is a recurring theme in the male erotic imagination, often influenced by pornography. Indeed, lesbian scenes are among the most popular searches on online platforms, reflecting a significant interest in this dynamic.

This fantasy can be fueled by a sense of power: the idea that two women, both attractive and passionate, are performing exclusively for a man's pleasure. This scenario is seen as an act dedicated to his desire, thereby enhancing his sense of erotic dominance.
Charlie, 24, admits: "I've had this fantasy for a long time, but I'd never dare ask my girlfriend to play out this scenario with her best friend, whom I find very attractive. I think it's better to keep it as a fantasy. The reality could be disappointing compared to what I imagine..."
Reality can sometimes be complex and fail to meet the expectations set by our fantasies. It's crucial to consider the potential consequences on relationships and emotional well-being before attempting to turn such desires into reality.

6. Sleeping with his best friend’s girl

The fantasy of sleeping with a friend's partner is a complex desire, often rooted in feelings of competition and conquest. Much like in childhood, where we covet a friend's toy simply because it belongs to them, this fantasy can be driven by the urge to possess what is inaccessible or forbidden.
This attraction can be seen as a display of masculinity, a challenge to social norms, where "stealing" another man's partner is viewed as an act of supremacy. For others, it might simply be a specific attraction to that woman, regardless of her relationship status.
Alfie, 30, tells us: "For a while, I thought I was in love with my best friend's girlfriend. I often found myself thinking about her, even during solo play. I was always nervous around her, worried she might know what I was thinking about. Fortunately, these feelings faded when I met my own partner. And it's just as well, because my friend and his girlfriend got married. I could have lost a dear friend if I had acted on that fantasy."
Acting on such a desire can lead to disastrous consequences for relationships and friendships. If you find yourself attracted to a friend's partner, it's important to step back and consider the implications.

7. Swallowing

Swallowing, or the act of ingesting semen after oral sex, is a common fantasy among many men. This desire is often driven by the fact that several partners choose not to swallow, either by spitting out the semen after the act or preferring ejaculation outside the mouth.

Why is this fantasy so prevalent? Psychologically, semen is seen as a part of oneself. Its acceptance rather than rejection or being considered "dirty" can be interpreted as a total acceptance by the partner. It can also enhance intimacy between the two people.
Harry, 18, shares with us: "Once, my girlfriend accidentally swallowed during oral sex. I climaxed quicker than expected, and usually, I finish elsewhere. It broke a taboo between us. She found it a bit salty but not disgusting, and it even turned us both on. Now, she doesn't do it every time, but occasionally, as a kind of 'surprise'."

If you're keen to explore this fantasy but your partner isn't comfortable with the idea, there are alternatives. Using a condom during oral sex allows for ejaculation in the mouth without the partner directly feeling the semen. Additionally, for those looking to recreate this experience solo or as a couple, specialised sex toys like a masturbator or a blowjob doll can simulate the act.

8. Sleeping with his professor

The fantasy of sleeping with a teacher is a staple in the male erotic imagination. It often revolves around the scenario of a somewhat lazy student in need of a "lesson" from his educator. This fantasy is rooted in the dynamics of authority and  submission, a mix that can be incredibly arousing for some.

It also plays on the taboo and the forbidden, as such relationships are generally not permitted, or at least not condoned, in an academic setting. For some men, this fantasy might also be linked to an attraction to intelligence, or even sapiosexuality – the sexual attraction to a person's intellect.

Fred, 34, recounts: "When I was a student, I had a huge crush on a PhD student who led one of my tutorials. She was in her twenties, while I was 19. She was mature, intelligent, beautiful... everything I was looking for. And above all, I thought she was out of reach. But ten years later, at an academic conference, we reconnected. After an evening with a bit too much to drink, we had a one-night stand. The chemistry wasn't quite there, but I'm glad to have lived out that fantasy."
For those looking to explore this fantasy, why not consider role-playing with your current partner? Imagine a scenario where your partner plays the role of the professor. You could even prepare a PowerPoint presentation that starts as a classic academic lecture but takes an erotic turn along the way, detailing everything the "teacher" would like to do to you in bed. This type of role-play can be a fun and safe way to experience this fantasy, while also strengthening the bond and intimacy within the relationship.
These candid confessions remind us that fantasies are a normal and healthy part of our sexual lives. They provide a space for exploration, experimentation, and sometimes, the realisation of otherwise unexpressed desires. However, it's crucial to remember that reality and fantasy don't always align, and that respect, consent, and communication are the cornerstones of a fulfilling and respectful sexual experience.
Whether these fantasies remain in the realm of imagination or transform into shared realities, they reflect the richness and diversity of human desires. We hope this article has not only entertained you but also encouraged you to explore your own world of fantasies, always with respect for yourself and your partner.
