Take our test to find out where your tal­ents lie be­tween the sheets.

True Love - - News - By BECKY FLETCHER

A new iPhone app that prom­ises to rate your per­for­mance in bed has just been re­leased. Amaz­ing, we thought – af­ter all, doesn’t every­one worry about how they mea­sure up be­tween the sheets? But the app, which uses sound and mo­tion sen­sors to rate its user’s per­for­mance, has been widely slated for its in­ac­cu­racy. Not so amaz­ing, then. So, if you re­ally want to know your strengths and weak­nesses in bed, put down your phone, pick up a pen and take our test. This is not an or­di­nary quiz: ex­pect an in-depth anal­y­sis of what type of per­son you are. A stands for Ad­ven­tur­ous, C is for Con­nect, D is Dom­i­nate, G is a Giver and W is for Worry. Which one are you?

C. A lot when I’m in a re­la­tion­ship W. I have no idea re­ally – I can take it or leave it A. As of­ten as pos­si­ble D. Two to four times a week G. It de­pends on the sex drive of the man I’m in bed with

G. I al­ways fol­low his lead W. I al­ways turn off the lights, get un­der the covers quickly, then take off my clothes A. I per­form a strip­tease C. We slowly un­dress each other while we’re kiss­ing D. We un­dress our­selves and then get down to it

I’msex­on­legs What po­si­tion are you most likely to do it in? W. Mis­sion­ary A. Ev­ery time is dif­fer­ent, but it’s un­likely to be just one. I like to try lots of dif­fer­ent po­si­tions C. One where we can eas­ily make eye con­tact D. Me on top G. Doggy style – men love that

What noises are you mak­ing ?

A. Ask my neigh­bours W. A few muf­fled groans G. I’m usu­ally ask­ing, ‘Is that okay?’ C. Spo­radic moans, depend­ing what he’s do­ing at the time D. A crescendo – quiet at first, then build­ing up un­til I come

I jump in the shower Add up how many of each let­ter you’ve scored, then read on to see what be­havioural psy­chol­o­gist and sex ex­pert Donna Daw­son has to say about your re­sults. Mostly Gs – You’re a GIVER

What’s good: You pri­ori­tise his needs and al­ways leave him sat­is­fied, but then, what man doesn’t like the idea of hav­ing a girl ful­fill­ing all of his de­sires?

What’s not so good: You may be sac­ri­fic­ing your plea­sure for his. Maybe you tried to im­press him with your self­less­ness, but if he thinks you’re al­ways sat­is­fied, sex will stay one-sided, and you’ll start to re­sent it.

Be bet­ter: If you also scored lots of As, then that’s great. But if you also scored Ws, you need to turn sex into a two-way street. Move his fin­gers to the right place, or just use the four words ‘harder, softer, faster, slower’. Mostly Ds – You DOM­I­NATE What’s good: You know what you like, which is great for him as well as you – men love know­ing they can hit the spot. What’s not so good: You know what works, so you’re ap­pre­hen­sive about new things, which means you’re not get­ting the spon­tane­ity that makes sex fun.

Be bet­ter: What are you afraid of – do­ing some­thing you’re un­com­fort­able with, or do­ing some­thing that he en­joys more than you? If you also scored Ws, it’s the fear of the un­known that both­ers you, so talk to him. Vary things be­fore you get stuck in a rut – let him have a go at tak­ing charge, and learn more about what he likes. Mostly As – You’re AD­VEN­TUR­OUS

What’s good: You’re up for any­thing – most guys love a girl who en­joys an ad­ven­tur­ous sex life. You’re not afraid to show you en­joy sex.

What’s not so good: Some­times there can be too much of a good thing. If you like ex­treme ad­ven­ture, you may be giv­ing the im­pres­sion of be­ing easy, and this may make men value you less. The eas­ier it is to get some­thing, the less we ap­pre­ci­ate it.

Be bet­ter: If you scored lots of Cs too, then you al­ready have a good bal­ance. But if you also scored a lot of Ds, you need to give yourself some time to get to know a man on an emo­tional level.

Mostly Cs – You CON­NECT What’s good: It’s great that you’ve worked out that re­ally good sex is about emo­tional con­nec­tion. It’s what every­one aims for – even men.

What’s not so good: While it’s what they want even­tu­ally, men may get put off by the pres­sure of your emo­tional ex­pec­ta­tions

Be bet­ter: Be more open-minded. It’s great to as­so­ciate romance with sex, and there’s noth­ing wrong with only sleep­ing with men you feel a con­nec­tion with, but be more com­pas­sion­ate by com­mu­ni­cat­ing how you feel phys­i­cally.

Mostly Ws – You WORRY What’s good: You never get lost in the mo­ment, which means you’re the least likely to end up with the kind of man who’ll just use you for sex.

What’s not so good: Your lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion leaves men feel­ing un­sure and in­se­cure about what they’re do­ing.

Be bet­ter: Spend time mas­tur­bat­ing – if you don’t know what you en­joy, he has no chance of work­ing it out alone. You also need to ac­cept that he’s there be­cause he fan­cies you – when a man is aroused, he couldn’t care less about the size of your thighs or but­tocks.
