What does it sound like when you have sex? Is there any dirty talk? What about panting, moaning, and/or grunting?

Noise is often part of our sexual fantasies, too. In fact, in the survey of more than 4,000 Americans’ sex fantasies that formed the basis for my book Tell Me What You Want, I found that 9 in 10 people reported having fantasies that involved dirty talk.
