Are Redheads Better in Bed?

“Are redheads better in bed?”

That is just one of the many redheaded themed questions people ask to find me on Google. I’ve never addressed the question before but since so many people are wondering I will answer it for you.

Yes. We rock in bed. Never, ever, underestimate the power of novelty.

Blonds are usually not really blonds so are a bit shy about revealing that fact. Most likely the lights have to be out. Brunettes are more likely to have the lights on but will probably hide under the covers so all that dark arm hair doesn’t show. They probably are less likely to kiss much since they have a little stubble or burn on their top lips. Redheads are usually, finally, proud of their hair color and want to show it to whomever wants to see it. After spending a childhood getting teased they not only have a sense of humor but of humility as well. They are less likely to point out your shortcomings.

I’ve actually never slept with a redhead. Most guys I know who have red hair remind me of Opie Taylor/Ritchie Cunningham or Carrot Top, neither of whom are that appealing to me but I can’t speak for everyone. I suspect they are probably better in bed than most guys because they have to overcome the hair and keep ’em coming back. In order to do that a guy has to learn a few skills that some guys don’t think are necessary. I have heard that redheaded guys are hung like horses however. God’s little gift for making them look like Howdy Doody I guess.

Another question posed to the Google is:

“Why are redheads so fucking crazy?”

That’s an excellent question and one I feel I can answer for all of us. Early on redheaded children get picked out for any transgressions. If a handful of kids play ding-dong-ditch and are running down the block when the homeowner answers the door in his bathrobe, the only kid he is going to be able to identify is the redhead. Kids all look the same when they are little so it is the redhead who gets the call to his or her parents from the old man who yells at kids to get off the grass. After a while the kid either grows into his or her reputation of being a trouble maker or stays inside when all the fun is happening.

Getting teased throughout middle school doesn’t help maintain one’s sanity either. Try going through the hardest years of your life being called carrot top and when a few years older fire crotch. It isn’t fun.

Imagine having strangers come up to you, where ever you go, and ask if that is your real hair color. It gets really old after a while. For years I would point out that my eyebrows are red and that I had no roots that were a different color. That usually shut them up but it was annoying still. One night, when I was out with friends at a bar, I had enough beer in me to answer the question in a way that indeed made people ask if I was crazy, I unzipped my pants and showed the blond who didn’t believe that red was indeed my real hair color. She wasn’t asking in a nice way if my hair color was my own. She asked in a snarky way, loudly, to her very attractive boyfriend. She stomped off and he gave me his phone number. It was well worth the hangover I had the next day.

Redheads are also smarter but I have yet to have a query for that.

    As a redhead, I can answered that yes we are better in bed! Yes I am well endowed and never had any complaints! Yes I was picked on, cheeks pinched for having redhead and always asked as a child where did I get it from. As an adult, I would be asked if my pubes were red and I would reply sure they are – did you think they would be purple?

    Before I had met my partner I had chatted with someone at those online dating sites and we talked for a while and then finally reached the part where we give each other our stats and when I replied that I was indeed a redhead his reply back on the screen was Oh no I can date a redhead – you are to pale. The conversation quickly halted and I sat there stunned.

    But for others the thought of being with a redhead is far too appealing and since we are 1 in 25 that just shows how truly special we redheads can be.

      Yes we are special. The red head is not dead I say. It’s time we celebrate that. We put up with enough teasing growing up that the average tanned woman will never know. I always felt less than not being able to tan but that changed as I get older. It’s okay now that I don’t have leather like skin from tanning like some women I see and I look ten years younger to boot. Greying hair on a red head man is beautiful. There’s no color like it. I worked with many men who say red heads are a little nutty but hot in bed. What c an I say!

    The publicist has been VERY happily married to a redhead for 27 years. His hair is grey now. He claims it is due to 27 years of marriage to the publicist. They met and were engaged in 6 weeks so I guess you can add “fast worker” to the redhead list….at least in some things 😉

  • Reply Lola May 5, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Since my partner is a redhead, I completely concur that redheads are better in bed, redheads are fucking crazy (if you’re smart, you learn to live with that and adapt), AND, redheads are geniuses.

    Lizzie, I’m sorry he was a disappointment, maybe he wasn’t a real redhead, probably a strawberry blond.

    Stacie, You are right of course, as always.

    Pricilla, 27 years? Congratulations. That is impressive.

    haha I love this post. The good in bed part was a little uncomfortable but for one particular reason. I have a red headed daughter. haha My baby who is now 18 months and having a hard time sprouting follicles appears to be redhead too. I am blonde or ok…was BORN that way. It got darker with age. Anyway my 7 year old has long flowing gorgeous red hair. I’m positive she got it from my grandmother and I have often wondered about the supposed fiery temper and all the other stereotypes. I have always told her how beautiful her hair is and how jealous everyone is. I explain to her how people pay lots of money to get that hair. I sure hope she never gets teased. She’ll think I’ve been lying to her. haha Now she thinks she’s the hottest thing to hit the planet. 😉 lol

  • Reply Jen May 5, 2009 at 12:57 pm

    Sandi, my daughter has red hair too as do all of my nieces, I wasn’t considering them when I wrote this. My daughter hasn’t been teased that I am aware of but she does want long straight black hair as opposed to her curly red hair. Since she sprouted hair, which took a while, people have made comments about her hair. She used to growl at them. One woman in Target said she wanted to have her hair. Obviously not realizing what literal being children are. My daughter cried for hours that that woman wanted to take her hair. This is why we are a little on the crazy side and tend to have a temper, we have to deal with idiots who otherwise keep to themselves but see a redheaded kid and say stupid things.

    My son was a tow head but it is now turning brown. At least I think it is under the blue that he dyes it.

  • Reply TheSnackHound May 5, 2009 at 6:20 pm

    I was a redhead for about 5 years. Did that make me crazy? Perhaps it did. Because red heads are more likely to be kidnapped in certain areas of the world, according to my globe trotting friend who was warned to keep an eye on their red headed kids.

    Nope, brunettes are way better.

    Brunettes are better because they have to develop a wonderful and unique personality to differentiate them from other brunetttes whereas redheads don’t have to, and when their hair falls out…oh well…

    • Reply Supergirl January 23, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      Actually redheads are the lest likely to become bald or become grey.  In fact, their hair often becomes a beautiful golden color when they get older.  And that is BS about redheads not having to develop a personality.  If you are constantly looked as “different” from a very young age you learn very fast to embrace your personality and be your own person.

  • Reply Jen May 5, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    Winky, all variations of red are accepted here. Even redheads from a bottle are fiery since it takes a certain personality to wear it. Except for when they end up looking kinda purple, that’s just funny looking.

    SnackHound, I love your blog and I suspect it is so great because you were at one time a redhead.

    Mr. Condescending, coming from you that means a lot.

    Mother, I knew you must be a redhead. No one can be that smart and confident and funny all at once and not be one. Cheers!

    I love that last story.

    I must admit that whenever I see a red head I now tell them I love the colour of their hair and then lament over the fact that although my hubby’s Dad and nieces are all red heads none of my kids are. Now that I think about it I must be annoying as all heck. Sigh.

  • Reply Jen May 5, 2009 at 8:36 pm

    Leanne, admitting you have a problem is half the battle. Did you want to have redheaded children? I did and have often wondered if I would have had another if my daughter was not a redhead, of course her dad has red on his side so it was almost a sure thing that she would have it.

  • Reply Chris Casey May 6, 2009 at 4:24 am

    This is a dangerous question for a man who is not married to a redhead to answer. But as an Irishman, I’ve seen my share of Freckles and redheads.
    The first woman I ever truly loved was a redhead, and when she died of breast cancer at the young age of 28 I never looked back.
    So on that note, I will say that all the redheads I have known had a great capacity for love.

    reds are nuts, both in the sack and in the head. but the hardest part is the fact that they never put your needs above what they think is important at the moment. however with a stern reminder that you are not a kitty to be trained, and have to be reminded of all your carpet poops re integrated to your memory on a daily basis things should be ok. keep in mind that hearing this will piss them off immensley at that moment, eventually they will come to terms that others have needs. the best thing to do is tell them you love them and try to keep them CALM. the wrath can be intense and cause you a lot of personal degredation. and really it is not worth it. they are very sensitive and do not bode well to pesonal criticism. however they are capable of calming down, but only after the storm. so DO NOT argue while they are pissed.{no damn good for u.} and it may cause a degree of personal insanity. keep it real people, and remember to take your time. and relax k!

Where did you get that from??? As far as the bedroom goes, I literally have my partners drooling in disbelief when I am finished with them (I’ve had a few stalkers because of this). I am not saying this to brag, I am saying this to point out that it isn’t just your hair color that determines how good you are in bed. I think it takes a lot of natural ability and talent, and a little bit of skill. And I like red heads, but I don’t like you bc of all of the nasty things that you said about other hair colors. I’d wager you are one of those little psycho, self-absorbed,destructive, Troll type of red head.

    • Reply Tarvalon January 18, 2013 at 3:56 pm

      I like all hair colors and I agree with you that it takes natural ability, talent and some skill. However, for some reason most women I have been with are not skilled, which I find perplexing. For 2 1/2 years I lived in a studio apartment above a garage which I rented from a lady who ran a “house of ill repute”. Her girls did not live there, but often hung out or overnight at my apartment. And I was more than willing to oblige. They were extremely forthcoming and never charged me once. But they were among the most skilled women I have ever been with and if I could have stayed I would have, but I had to transfer. They were amazing and came in all hair colors. I believe they get a bad rap and their judges could do well to learn from them. They specialize in a stress free environment.

  • Reply John August 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    I will cover both topics here becuase I belive I can shed some light on these subjects. First I need to say I LOVE REDHEADS!! I am 36 and have spent my life as far back as kindergarden being very attracted to redheads. I have been with enough of them to be able to say that all of them are not better in bed, but what they bring to bed with them is way better. Always like someone left the heater up to high on the water bed for too long.
    And on the other subject, every redhead I have been with longterm and short term were very freaking crazy! And of coarse evey one of them claimed they were not. My only reasoning for this is the extra internal body heat has fried their minds. But it is worth putting up with to be with them.

  • Reply james December 31, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Redheads love it ballsdeep their ass. All redheads I’ve dated were anal freaks and had crazy orgasms during anal. Now, I’ve read it has something to do with their genetic extra sensitivity for pain and pleasure.

  • Reply Been through it March 5, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Redhead females are a very rare breed. A select few of them are very pretty. I’ve been lucky (un?) enough to experience three redheads in my life, in somewhat long-term relationships. All of them were pretty attractive (Id say an 8 out of 10 on a 10 high scale) and all of them were intelligent, emotional (get to that later), and driven. The common thread that I’ve noticed is that they are very “fun-loving”. Not in a stupid or whore-ish way by any means…they just enjoy having fun, and they LOVE being the center of positive attention. I always felt proud having a pretty redhead girl on my arm or by my side whenever I walked into ANYWHERE…because people DO notice. Being 2% of the population as far as hair color is concerned means that she’s going to stick out as a redhead. Guys like me who enjoy the unconventional will definitely take notice of a guy walking into a bar or restaurant with a hot redhead (and be jealous or try to approach) when they see a redhead beauty. (Not an easy thing to deal with, by the way, being all proud you have a smokin redhead hottie on your arm but also having to stare down every a*hole in the place that thinks he has a shot at what you have. Redhead women are loyal, but they like any positive attention to some degree) My experience has been this…redhead women are extremely strong in their convictions and their emotions. If they love you, then dammit-all, you’re going to feel loved. If they want you sexually, and they trust you enough to break out of their shell (you’re not going to have an easy time of this) they can be a lot of fun in bed. (Not necessarily any more than a woman of any other haircolor though), and if you’re on their shi*-list, ohhh buddy, look the fu*k out. They take their insecurities and emotional struggles as seriously as a heart attack. Once upset, you’re better off putting your heart and your emotions in a blender on “frappe” than trying to comprehend the amount of arrows that are about to be slung your way or the paths that your conversations will take. When upset, they say (or worse yet) DO things that make you wonder if they are sane. You seriously end up wondering if the attraction to this rare species is worth it. You question your own sanity for even being involved. You’d feel safer with a blonde or more sane with a brunette. Once the storm calms, then it momentarily becomes worth it again, but it is definitely a relationship of extreme highs and lows. You are always on your toes, in both very good and very bad ways. Guys, if you’re the type who thinks that a perfect relationship is one that makes you feel like you’re tapping your dick on a bear-trap that could go off at any moment, then by all means, date a redhead girl. You’ll have fun. You’ll feel like a king at some point or another. But at some point the trigger on the trap will give, and you’ll wonder what the hell you got yourself into. Just so you know, I’m not some low-life troll with a harsh opinion. I’m a genetically mentally healthy white male, making over 55K/yr, good looking, adventurous type of guy who has had more than his fair share of girlfriends in his youth and has settled down in his thirties. I know wtf I’m talking about.This is a hard thing for me to say (being a male of Irish decent means I’m genetically pre-disposed to falling over myself when seeing a pretty redhead girl) but there is a reason why redheads are only 2% of the world population at this point. It’s called the theory of evolution. If a genetic strain is meant to cancel itself out though natural selection, it will eventually do so. It’s a shame to say that, because there are some wonderful, beautiful redheads out there…but I have yet to find one that hasn’t had her head screwed on backwards when it comes to dealing with her emotional insecurities or ability to communicate those things in a relationship. Yes, women and men differ greatly, and guys, we have to deal with that…adapt to it, make concessions, occasionally even change ourselves, occasionally wonder what the hell we are doing, and that’s normal…but if you want to do that on a level that’s beyond male logic comprehension, and you’re willing to be the “bitch” in a relationship, date a redhead woman. Cheers, and good luck to you. You’re going to need it.

      Oh man…this is such a beautifully accurate description. Especially the part about questioning your sanity. Theyre smart and crazy for sure, and they know how to use it. In an argument, expect for all your words to be twisted in a way that makes you feel like you’re the crazy one, no matter whose more accurate. Sometimes I felt that naturally these girls know how to manipulate arguments very fluidly so that they’re always perceived as smart rather than crazy. Being completely aware of that tactic doesn’t help either. I once pointed out to an ex that she has contradicted herself multiple times for the sake of disagreeing with my points and shit got very hurtful. They know how to say the things that will pick at your own insecurities and emotions the most as a means of defense, whether they know they’re doing it or not. The only way to win an argument is to know ultimately that they are backwards logically. There’s no winning through words. This is the evil side of a redhead (girl) and it really kinda sucks. Hook ups only son; she has the ways that’ll bring you to sin.

    Peter I agree! I’m from a Jewish background and had nothing but “grief” from all the Jews, all hair colors, fair skin to darker Indo-Arab skin. But the worst Jews I ever had to deal with is the red haired ones (and there are a lot of red haired Jews, nearly as much as the Irish!). One of the worst red-haired Jewish men, I’ve ever dealt with was this guy called Noah, who ran a bike shop, tried to rip off myself and my partner , Andre. Total creeep! Then there was this other “autistic” retard , half-Jew, definite Irish in him, called Martin. Total sneaky, foxy, psychotic, Serfadi-Albino creep! I heard he was well-hung though (unusual for Jewish men, but the Serfadi Jews are more closely related to the Arabs, than us “Ashkenazic” Jews are). Martin “big red” caused a lot of trouble (most Jews have a reputation for that) , but being Jewish and red-haired put a even more dangerous “edge” to this! I’m still terrified of this guy today! He claims to be related to the notorious Packer family (they’re Dutch Jews by descent as well, and a lot of Dutch people have red hair as well). I made the mistake for taking this red haired guy’s ‘generosity’ as a sign of weakness . He really was a nice guy towards me, but after I had a nasty falling out with many people (including “big red”), he instead turned totally the other direction against me, disclosing my bi-sexual lifestyle to my Jewish family, writing letters full of gossip and slander, making sure sure, all of the other Jews in our neighborhood hate my guts even more and even turn on me.. I am a prisoner in my own home, I really F****d up! I heard red-haired people can be ‘ruthless’ when crossed, now I’ve learn’t the hard way! I warn other people reading this blog, to be very careful of “taking an advantage” of a red-haired like I did, it nearly cost me my life! And I can still get “whacked” on the account of this!
