Men reveal on Reddit how they know when partners want sex

  • Reddit user asked men about the subtle clues their wives give when in the mood
  • However, a lot of women seem to take a much more blunt approach 
  • One stands beside partner while he’s playing on computer and shouts ‘sex’ 
  • Another says speaking in a British accent is all it takes to get things going 

People have revealed the things women to do indicate they’re in the mood for sex in a hilarious thread on Reddit. 

And while the initial question asked for examples of ‘subtle clues’, it seems that many women go for a much more blunt approach. 

One man revealed that due to having a young child, there’s no time to be coy, so his wife whispers to him ‘the baby’s asleep’ and they sneak off to have quiet sex, ‘while trying not to make eye contact with the dog’.

Another admitted he was slow on the uptake but finally twigged that when his girlfriend locks the cat in the office at home it means something’s going to happen and she doesn’t want him watching.   

A woman revealed that she takes control of the downstairs TV via her phone, and plays Careless Whisper to let her partner know she’s in the mood. 

Others admit they go for the extremely blunt approach such as sending text message from another room, or walking up to their partner while he’s playing computer games and shouting, ‘sex’.
