An article published in this month's Nuts magazine suggests that men 'often ignore a woman's needs' when trying to get their partner into an evening session of popular board game Scrabble.
The article says that, once a woman indicates a bit of interest, men often rush immediately for the box or hurriedly try to get their partner's rack out, whereas women like to enjoy some quality wordplay to help them get in the mood.
'Women absolutely hate a fella who tries to get all anal and dives straight in with a bulging dictionary,' says the article. 'They really appreciate a more thoughtful approach -- maybe an oral session involving chat about their day, or some cunning linguistics and tongue-twisters to get the ball rolling.'
'Once they've got their tongue around something long and hard to pronounce, your missus can relax into their game and hopefully get themselves on top and in control, provided their luck is in with what they drag out of the sack after a bit of a fumble for their tiles,' it continues. 'Of course, the game itself is piss-boring, but just spending time with your bird means you're onto a winner, and as we always say ... anything to get a shag.'
