"Stop waiting for me to always take control. You want me? Come take me!"
"I need him to manhandle me a little bit. I want to feel him want me. Put me against the wall and pull my clothes off."
"I like [my boyfriend] forceful. I want my hands pinned back with him taking me."
"I like my hair pulled A LOT. I want to know he has control."

Once they let their guards down, a full 91% of respondents said it clearly: They wanted a man to take charge in the bedroom. This answer came from women in all walks of life: stay-at-home moms, power attorneys, women in their 20s, women in their 40s, emo girls, executives... it didn't matter. And the reason is simple: It's primal. Heterosexual women want to be afforded pleasure at the hands of a man who is confident, capable, and passionate. In essence, she wants to just let go. She wants to trust, release, and just be a woman... sexual, sensual, and feminine; to be trusting and hand control over to a man who will not use his "power" against her.

Bottom line: A woman wanting a man to take charge in the bedroom is the ultimate gift. It says that she trusts him with her. She is allowing him to take her. She wants a man who is confident, charming, alluring, captivating, mysterious and bad — all the while caring deeply for her integrity and self-respect by not thinking that the submission and control in the bedroom translates to "She's my bitch" in the real world.

Disclaimer: "Control" and "forceful" does not mean angry or violent. Before trying anything new/rough/forceful, discuss boundaries and limits with your partner.
