    Well i've only done that act twice. And first time was lights off. Second time lights on.

    And personally i kind of like lights on and when she was on top. Because i just LOVED being able to look at her and thought she was both gorgeous and sexy as hell.

    So what are your thoughts?

    Definitely lights on, for exactly the reason you mentioned.
    Sex, for me at least, is 80% mental and half of that is visual stimulation.
    I want to SEE my partner enjoying herself. :)

    Candlelight :) It sets the mood and everyone looks better in it!

    ETA: Also, a low wattage light bulb would work well if candles aren't an option.

    Variety. Sometimes dark, because it's kind of fun not being able to see fully what's going on. Sometimes light, because I love looking at my hubby!

    It was lights on with the few women I've made love and had sex with,even with my wife.She has some insecure issues about her body,but she never have said that the lights had to be off.Neither any of the other women whom I was seeing before I met my wife.

    If she's got a nice bod, lights on! If not, well, maybe I'd prefer not to see too much!

    Lights on or natural light. Guys are so visual, I can't believe they would like it any other way. It helps that I feel pretty good about my bod. I work hard enough on it!

    I like lights on, any my wife is still very attractive so she doesn't mind. I like dull lighting, it's more romantic, I use low wattage bedside lights.

    Lights on; bag over the head. j/k

    I've always preferred candlelight or dimmed lights. (I guess the TV counts as dim light.)

    Lights somewhat on. I like to see what I am eating, and I like seeing her face glow. That is just me though.

    lights on because i love seeing her reaction with im thrusting it in her, and the way her breasts move is a biggg turn on.

    Usually lights on - the only time I'm not aware of how fat I am is when I'm with him :)

    that sounds so soppy :lol:

    I've never had sex in complete darkness. Usually when we do it in bed the lights are off but the tv is on so there is a soft light so we can both see each other clearly, I really like that. Also like those afternoon play times when it's really bright :)

    I like dim lights on, candlelight, fireplace, or similar. (We have a few of these little skulls that have changing multi-color LED lights in them...a Halloween decoration we decided to keep out! :brow I think they are pretty hot!) I like to see the action and expressions on my lava's face.

    Totally dark is also quite nice though...you have to work everything by feel alone, and that in itself is quite erotic. It seems to me that my sense of touch, smell, taste, and hearing is heightened somewhat when it's too dark to see...it's nice.

    So, I guess I like both, eh?

    We most always have a candle burning next to a big mirror. The shadows our headboard make on the deep purple walls makes it look almost like a dungeon, definitely someplace mysterious and forbidden. :dgrin

    Lights on. Dim is good, candle is more romantic, but not quite bright enough. Of course if we're on the living room floor or somewhere like that, it's usually under glaring light from the chandelier, but that's pretty cool too.:eyes
