“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman wants a man who’s a gentleman at dinner and an animal in bed. This the Russian man understands,” writes the New York feminist born in the USSR.Maybe brutal love making and total disregard to his partner’s feelings (and satisfaction) is attractive to someone who is used to gentle care, but I would stick to my opinion that the majority of Russian men are not as skilled in the bedroom department as their western counterparts, who took time to learn a thing or two about female pleasure.The liberal arts graduate decided to explore her homeland by living there, and temporarily moved to Russia in 2010.To provide for herself, she was teaching English in St. “The first thing that you’ll notice when you get to Russia is that the women are astoundingly beautiful and immaculately presented”, she says.I would add, especially in capitals such as Moscow or Piter (the affectionate nickname of Saint Petersburg).

“I love (and hate) dating Russian men“, states Diana, and then goes on to explain why.
“The macho guys from my home country leave me torn between my feminist beliefs and my sexual desires.” Her story begins with the description of a fight for “her honour” by a Russian boyfriend, because in the midst of a drunken party, another guy tried to touch her.
Post-USSR women are brought up to be passive, display themselves, and let men approach, otherwise you are not “modest”, which is what all guys want in their girlfriends (according to the local beliefs).
In Diana’s words, if a Russian guy likes you, nothing can stop him.
“If a man insists on paying I’ll let him,” states Shannon, another American woman, writing about Russia.
