Some men make the mistake of buying lingerie for their wives or girlfriends. This may seem like a good idea if you want to heat things up in the bedroom, but it can easily go horribly wrong. First of all, lingerie falls under the category of clothing. Hence it’s easy to choose the wrong size, style or color. Furthermore, receiving a lingerie gift can cause a woman to ask herself certain questions. For instance, your partner might wonder why you chose such a gift, and believe that you are bored with your sex life together. She may also suspect that you bought the gift to gratify yourself rather than delight her.
