Best behaviour in bed?

A conversation I had with someone after Flick's wedding has prompted some thoughts about behaviour that's appropriate to its context; in particular about how you behave if you're in bed with someone, or otherwise engaged in bed-oriented mutual recreation.

You probably have some mental image of what "gentlemanly behaviour" is like, what "ladylike behaviour" is like. Bring those mental images to mind as you fill in this poll. Statistics are visible to everyone; individual answers are only visible to me.

Poll #823194 Best behaviour?

Leaving aside the gender-specific meanings of the words, do "gentlemanly" and "ladylike" mean much the same?

Would you describe your behaviour towards your partner(s) or potential partner(s) as "gentlemanly" or "ladylike" in situations involving what I've delicately referred to above as "bed-oriented mutual recreation" (whether or not you're in bed)?

Imagine you're actively involved in some "bed-oriented mutual recreation". During these activities, would you like your partner(s) to behave in ways that might be described as "gentlemanly" or "ladylike"?

Yes

I ticked both because variety is good

Anything else you'd like to add?

My participation in such recreation has either been non-existent or so long ago that I consider myself unqualified to answer any of these questions

Answering all these questions would have given you far more information about my sex than I'm comfortable with but I wanted to tick a box somewhere and this is it
2(4.3%)
My partner(s) has/have been of only one type so I can't express a preference in the last question: I'd welcome some experience of the opposite type
1(2.1%)
Damn you for making the results invisible so I don't know who I should be trying to pull next time I go to a wedding

I got distracted when I was at the "imagine" stage of the last question and lost my place in the poll
5(10.6%)
I'd sooner have a nice cup of tea
