A Gentleman Never Tells And Why You Shouldn’t Either

In today’s society the concept “a gentleman never tells” has almost vanished and with it men’s sense of decorum.

The expression refers to a man not sharing his sexual experiences with his peers. In the world of Snapchat, WhatsApp and Facebook where everyone shares everything with everyone it’s time to take a step back and think before you speak about your romantic life.

Your sexual experiences and pleasures are yours. You are the one who gets to experience them. So why tell others about them?


As young men in the making the need to establish one’s sexual prowess amongst our peers often results in bravado or an exaggeration of our sexual experiences but it is better to grow out of that sooner than later. Sharing details of your sexual conquests with your friends is merely a way to feed into your ego and masks hidden insecurities.

But you are now an adult, a man, perhaps even a gentleman. Then why should you care what others think about how much of a ladies’ man you are or aren’t? What other people think of you, is after all, none of your business and has nothing to do with you.

Your intimate experiences are for you and your partner(s) to share and cherish.  And a woman who knows that that is the case is much more likely to be sexually open and expressive with you. This could result in sexual pleasures that you would perhaps otherwise never get to experience. Think about that…
