1. RoleplayGiven that men are highly visual, you probably won't be all that surprised to know that "dressing up" or roleplay is high up there on the list of ultimate male sexual fantasies. Naughty nurses, sexy secretaries and schoolgirls are among the most popular themes for roleplaying. "What we crave gets hard-wired into us between 5 and 8 years of age (based on what was going on at the time) and role plays can either specifically cater to that or simply unleash forbidden ideas," suggests Rebecca Rosenblat, who is a psychotherapist, and a relationship and sexuality expert.
2. ThreesomesThreesomes are another hot male sexual fantasy, but don't fret, it's most likely to remain just that -- a fantasy. Fantasizing a threesome encounter is more about a stamp of approval of his virility, rather than a sign that he lusts after multiple lovers. "Guys like to feel that they can have and pleasure two women at once," says Rosenblat.
Sex coach Dr. Patti Britton suggests that the idea of being unfaithful with other women without actually doing so plays a prominent role in this sexual fantasy. "It allows for 'cheating' without having to breach the relationship," she says. "Perhaps the excitement is escalated by perceiving oneself having the impossible, or even the taboo associated with two women and one man."
3. Paid sexWhile they probably wouldn't go down this route in reality, prostitutes can feature in many men's sexual fantasies. "There's a feeling in the male mind that a professional is experienced and ever-willing," suggests Rosenblat. "Plus, he gets to have sex the way he wants it -- and pornographic sex is part of this."
The appeal of fantasizing a prostitute is because it's no-strings-attached sex and there's no performance anxiety on his part because he's not required to please her in bed. "In most 'normal' sexual acts, the man is expected to give or do something to pleasure or please his partner -- but not with a hooker," says Britton.
