Don’t assume that she sees her body the same way you do. Women feel most self-conscious about the body parts men lust after, a new study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found. When asked which areas of their body they worry about in bed, women most often named their stomach, breasts and butt. Blame Photoshop: ”These areas are often portrayed in an unrealistic, standardised way,” says researcher Patricia Pascoal. ”This puts a lot of pressure on women.” If you compliment those spots, she may just feel scrutinised. So praise her unique qualities, like her laugh, instead.
