While sex noises are super personal and subject to preference, one dating site’s recent survey has revealed that a lot of us really like to hear some moaning. surveyed over 5,000 of its users and found that the sexiest noise to both sexes is moaning, with 90% of men and 77% of women admitting it is a huge turn-on for them.

Like a little more verbiage between the sheets? You’re not alone. Nearly 77% of men said they like to hear some dirty talk during the deed, and 73.5% of women agreed. Dirty talk can definitely heighten the experience with your partner, especially if you know how to voice your needs and desires. Coming up with some solidly hot phrases in the heat of the moment can be a challenge, so you might want to keep a couple in your back pocket. (Maybe don’t revert to a passage you read in 50 Shades, or things could get awkward.)

Heavy breathing also made the list with 60% of men digging it, while only 45% of women felt the same.

You probably want to start with light breathing rather than some heavy asthmatic-like breathing, though, and then see how your partner responds from there. You don’t want your partner to think you’re having an asthma attack. Kind of a mood killer.

Screaming — as in “OMG!” screaming and not like “you’re scaring me” screaming — was found to be more enjoyable for men, with 50% of them finding it attractive. However, only 36.2% of women like it, so your best bet is to not scream. Same with swearing. Both men and women weren’t entirely into having someone say expletives to them while getting down.

And if you’re not into a lot of noise? Well, you’re not alone. Nearly 13% of women prefer it nice and quiet, while only 8% of men like the sound of silence.

Like anything when it comes to sex, you should always communicate your personal preference. If you don’t like dirty talk, then kindly tell your partner. On the flip side, if you’d like to hear more of a response from your partner — like moaning or heavy breathing — let your partner know that, too.

Whatever you do, don’t tell your partner that they remind you of your mom or dad. Both men and women said that was a major turn-off. Which you don’t really need a survey to tell you.
