I’m a builder and this is why we have the best sex ever – and with my tips, you can too 0 97

BUILDERS are not just handy around the house — they are great in bed too.

As we revealed yesterday, tradespeople who work with their hands make the best lovers, with builders, plasterers, electricians and mechanics all in the top ten.

Builders are not just handy around the house — they are great in bed too

But what makes them so highly desired?

Here, two labourers — one male and one female — spill their secrets to Sun sexpert Georgette Culley so we don’t have to rely on DIY.

Albert’s tips

SINGLE Albert Pritchard, 27, of Brentwood, Essex, says: “Women love builders. We are cheeky and laugh them into bed. Heavy-lifting gives me muscles and stamina.

“On dating sites, women have asked for pictures in my hard hat. They just love a guy who can fix things.

Albert Pritchard says: ‘Women love builders’

“Perhaps it goes back to hunter-gatherer days.”

DON’T MEASURE UP? As fellas, it’s easy to get hung up on the size of our tool kit and start comparing it to others. But don’t be too hard on yourself, as it’s the motion of the ocean that counts.

Often, women won’t orgasm from penetrative sex alone, so let go of those fears and concentrate on your handiwork instead.

Adding ten to 20 minutes of foreplay before you get down to business will ensure you get the job done well.

LAY OUT A FOUNDATION: If you want to seduce a woman, you’ve got to put the graft in to make her feel special and desired.

Women love being romanced so don’t be afraid of looking soppy or cheesy by bringing her flowers or romantic gifts.

Beneath the bravado I’m a real gentleman and like to wine and dine ladies so they know I’m keen.

PERFECT YOUR PAINTWORK: After you’ve done the walls, why not cover your lover’s body in chocolate body paint?

Use a brush to tickle and tease your partner and then lick it off.

To up the ante, use a blindfold so your lover can’t see where you’re going or what you’re drawing.

BEDROOM BANTER: Builders have the gift of the gab because we are always having a joke on site, and this comes in handy when chatting up women.

They love a guy who can laugh them into bed. This is because a sense of humour makes us appear more intelligent and puts the woman at ease.

Couples who laugh together stay together, so don’t make sex serious — have a laugh trying new things out.

DON’T TROWEL IT ON: Women don’t have to look like a super-model or be a size eight to get our attention. We’re just pleased you fancy us, and we love seeing the real you naked.

Men love natural women so don’t hide away your beauty under hair extensions, fake tan and false eyelashes — strip everything back to basics. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.

COME ON TIME: Practise “edging” while having sex — a technique where you push yourself to the edge of glory and stop just before you get there.

Then you build it all back up and again — and practise as many times as you can. It will help you last longer in the bedroom.

Laurin’s tips

LAURIN FOX, 29, of Exeter, is single and runs The Posh Fox Garden Design Business.

She says: “Women in manual trades can handle the tiniest tool and get results. We are patient and good with our hands.

Laurin says: ‘Women in manual trades can handle the tiniest tool’

“We’re fit, tanned and have muscles in the right places. I’m not afraid to get dirty, in and out of the bedroom.”

DON’T BRICK IT: Confidence is the biggest turn-on and both sexes love someone who’s self-assured and exciting between the sheets.

Most of us want more adventurous sex, so don’t be afraid to mix up the location and positions.

If you’re too shy to say what you want in bed, play the adult version of Truth Or Dare to subtly find out each other’s secret desires.

LANDSCAPE THE GARDEN: There are 41 different parts of the body which can boost sexual arousal — not including your nether regions.

Think neck, shoulders, scalp, ears, belly, inner thighs, inner arms, back, bum and feet — yes, really. Get your partner to explore them all.

The more relaxed and turned on you feel, the more likely you’ll reach orgasm.

HEALTH AND SAFETY ASSESSMENT: Communication is key to great sex — and make sure you play safe and always wear protection with new partners, to protect yourself and them from STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

Don’t ever do anything you’re not comfortable with, and ditch anyone who makes you feel bad for not doing it.

YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR (HARD) HAT ON: Role play is one of the biggest fantasies among couples.

I’ve lost count of how many guys have asked me to wear my overalls in the bedroom, and I can’t say no to a guy in uniform.

Build up sexual tension by sexting your lover a cheeky snap during the day, of you dressed up to let them know what they can look forward to later.

USE YOUR TOOL KIT: As a builder, I love new gadgets, and that applies to my top drawer too.

Sex toys are a great way for couples to experiment with different types of stimulation.

You can pick one up from your local supermarket for a few quid.

DON’T GET PLASTERED: Too much booze can give fellas brewer’s droop. It increases angiotensin, a hormone linked to erectile dysfunction.

Alcohol can also inhibit men and women’s chances of orgasm because it depresses your central nervous system, numbing you down below.

Having sober sex makes you experience pleasure fully, so you have more chance of hitting the sweet spot.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
