Re: Men how do you like your affection?

I know you asked the guys, but apart from lots of sex my H loves hugs esp when he comes home from work. Due to my own past I was not a very tactile person even with my kids but i have learned over the years to change that, so give hugs as much as possible.
He also loves head massages.

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

A lot of our touch is sexual, that said I really like it when my wife locks her arm around me when we're walking together.

One of the ongoing highlights for me though in terms of affection, is the fact that my wife and I both enjoy talking with each other a lot.

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

Not sure how it started but she likes to lay on top of me. It's her spot so she says. She does a terrific arm and shoulder massage in reciprocation she gets her feet massaged (size 5 1/2 beauties) and her hair stroked.

I'm crazy about my husband's butt too. I love to spank it, grab it, caress it when he sleeps, rub it, stare at it when he's not noticing.

I'm a butt fiend.

Men. Besides sexual affection, what kind of affection do you like that makes you feel all warm and loving? Do you like being the little spoon? Do you like when we sit on your lap? What do you love that your wife does or wish she did?
I can't think of a type of affection that I would not like. I would also reciprocate.

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

Just any sort of touching is fine. She doesn't do it very much but I love it when she does it.

Not that I'm starved for affection, as we do touch and snuggle in bed, but it would just be a nice addition to have it other times.

Always remember the LD motto: "Sex isn't important!!!"

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

When I first read the title of the thread my answer was "on my Pen!s"

But seriously gentle touches of my leg, butt, back.

Non physical? Taking interest in "my" things. Golf, art, etc.

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

Massages are nice. Really just something as simple as curling up when we watch TV / movie, hand under my shirt on my chest. Otherwise, a lot of steak

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

I'm lucky to be the first woman to give my partner baths, massages and pedicures. All 3 consecutively in that order and boy does he turn all mushy. Dem hooves were jacked up from track and football, now he's so proud of his "dainty little feet", as he loves to put it.

As long as it comes with a pan of brownies, I'm thrilled with anything!

Re: Men how do you like your affection?

I'd have to agree with blueinbr... If I could get any affection, I'd grin all day... so I'll have to come back if / when that happens!

Sadly, I'm in this camp as well. I've only gotten halfway through the 5 love languages but certainly mine appear to be a combination of physical contact, spending quality time together and words of affirmation - none of which I get very frequently, so I'd admittedly very needy. Most of the time, we're barely together and when we are she's preoccupied with her iPhone. She rarely initiates touch and when I try to touch her there seems to be no response at all other than an aire of annoyance, followed soon after by withdrawing from my presence.

Back to the question at hand though, I would love nothing more than to have her just sit beside me and lay her head on my shoulder while watching a movie or for her to show some initiate as small as just playing footsie in bed. Lying beside her at night I am drawn to her warmth and when she gets up I find myself get intoxicated in the smell of her pillow.
