There’s no denying that this brown-eyed heartthrob had a huge influence in the spark of your sexual awakening. Not only was Benny the cutest guy on the team, he also shined through as the team’s star player and went on to the Dodgers. All this despite the times and the white suburban neighborhood he lived in. 100% Benny is an inspiration and credit to Latinos who knock their dreams out of the park.
1. He wasn’t intimidated by other people’s success.
Benny easily makes friends with Smalls who he can tell right away is a bit nerdy and on the socially-undeveloped side. Still, he turns Smalls into one of his best friends and a pretty alright baseball player.
2. He’d do anything to defend your honor.
Benny was not about the bullshit. During the scene where The Tigers come to the sandlot, all of the sandlot players head off to confront them and throw their gloves to the ground. Not Benny though. My man, tosses his glove and picks up a baseball bat ready to knock out any 12-year-old boy who wants to take a whack at him.
3. He had mad style and knew how to take care of his shit.
Benny was all about the PF Flyers and valued their worth so much that he only used them to play for big games. Now that’s boi that knows how to take care of his shit.
4. And basically, every one of his looks was dreamy AF
Benny knew how to pull the doe eyes at every turn.
5. Even when he was slightly disgusted.
Whether he was proud of his own game or disgusted in the behavior of his teammates, he always looked fine.
6. Or, feeling completely lost.
Literally look at that face.
7. He was a go-getter.
On a constant mission to improve his curves, throws, and slides, Benny took the game seriously and thus inspired his friends to do so.
8. He was basically the heart and brains of the team.
These boys woke up at 8 AM every day in the SUMMER to hustle around a hot sandlot and play with Benny. His amazing team leadership had everyone pumped and ready to work.
(Also, damn son bite that lip.)
9. He was generous as hell.
Benny takes sad sack Smalls under his wing and teaches him that to play baseball which ultimately gives the new kid on the block a reason to thrive and become a sports journalist.
10. He was also the Latino dream we need in movies today.
For it’s time, Benny’s role was pretty innovative. He wasn’t the Latino stereotype that persists in movies and tv show to this day.
11. He knew how to take stuff seriously.
You’d never go wrong with Benny as a BF. He literally took his life on the baseball field so seriously that he became a player for the Dodgers AND eventually a manager of the team.
12. And be a team player
So you know that in any of his relationships he’ll be right next to his partner putting in 100% doing cleanups, cooking, and baby rearing.
13. He knew how to rally.
Again, this boy convinced 8 roudy boys of different ages and backgrounds to group together and play baseball in the scorching hot weather in the SAN FERNANDO VALLEY.
14. And have fun under the worst circumstances.
In the movie, the kids face the grueling heat of summers, the disappointment of losing their last ball, being ridiculed and getting sick on Tobacco. Despite this, each and every time, Benny rallied and found a way to have fun.
15. He knows how to treat you right.
Benny proves that he understands the importance of team building early on when he pays for everyone to go to the carnival.
16. He had a bit of potty mouth.
Yeah, your boy knows how to curse.
17. He was a fan of the Dodgers.
He was a fan of yes THE BEST baseball team ever. And he went on to have an impressive career with them too.
18. He knows how to hit a ball.
He busts the guts off of their last baseball.
20. He knows that absolute power is a bad idea.
Benny refused to lead his team with an iron fist and instead often allowed his team to put decisions to a vote.
21. He’s basically a god of the spoken word.
Benny was a king of teaching others to improve. When Smalls didn’t know how to throw a baseball, Benny gave him a paper route analogy to show him how to throw properly. After that, Smalls was able to pitch a mad ball.
22. Looked damn fine as an adult.
Seriously, get yourself a major leaguer like this guy.
When it comes to you and your boyfriend, you guys are tight. But there is always room for being a closer couple and, often, that comes with open communication and developing greater intimacy. Part of that intimacy is always learning new things about each other and, in particular, learning things that nobody else knows about you. That’s where these questions come in.
If you want to build your bond with your sweetie pie, then you should ask him these 20 sexy questions. From learning what his favorite part of your body is to learn his most daring fantasy, these questions are sure to help you get closer together… And they might even make for some hot-and-heavy nights, too.
1. What’s your favorite part of my body?
This is a good first question to start with because it’s likely that he has already thought about this plenty (or at least we hope so!). It can really open up the communication channels and add something sexy to the conversation. Perhaps, next, you can ask for him to massage that part of your body? And see where the massage leads…
2. How often do you touch yourself in a week? What’s on your mind during solo time?
This is the kind of question that might make the conversation really awkward at first but you can start out by admitting that you, too, have your own solo sessions. Talk about what he likes to think about (or if he watches anything) when he masturbates and, perhaps, how you can help next time.
3. Has anyone ever caught you naked before?
This is a fun and sexy question that you can both answer, but definitely first start with him. It will likely lead to a fun or embarrassing story that now, years later, he likely is laughing about. Maybe, perhaps, you can talk about his general nakedness after.
4. Have you ever “sexted” someone?
Hopefully, at this point in your relationship, you have already sexted with your sweetie. If you haven’t, then what are you waiting for? Either way, it would be fun to hear about his previous “sexting” experience and what he learned. Perhaps he can even demonstrate, for you, how he likes it.
5. What turns you on almost instantly?
This is definitely a fun question to know about your partner. You probably already know a lot of the things that turn him on on a regular basis, but what about the things that he really, truly can’t resist? You’ll definitely want to know what has an instant effect on his libido for the next time you, ahem, want to use that information.
6. What celebrity do you think would be the best in bed?
It’s always fun to talk about your celebrity crushes with your bae, but this question is a bit more specific. It’s definitely something that you can discuss together but it would first be really interesting to hear your boyfriend’s thoughts that don’t necessarily include who the “hottest” celeb is but who would actually be the best in bed, which are two very different things.
7. Do you like it when girls wear lingerie?
According to our culture, guys LOVE girls in lingerie. But that’s not necessarily true if you’ve ever had a conversation with a straight male friend. Beyond that, your bae might like a different type of lingerie. Having this conversation can definitely open up some new, sexy channels for you to explore in the future.
8. Have you ever bragged to your friends about me?
This can be a sweet question that leads to some fun exchanges. It’s always a confidence-booster to hear about your boyfriend bragging about you and, especially, if you ask him what are the kind of things he bragged about. It’s a great conversation starter for the things you appreciate about each other.
9. Have you ever had a sexy dream about me?
One of the best parts about talking about your sexy dreams with your sweetie is that you can recreate those dreams in real-life. A lot of fantasies can open up and desires are expressed when you talk to your boyfriend about the sexy dreams he’s had about you… And don’t be afraid to share yours with him, too.
10. How long do you think you could go without sex?
This is an interesting question that can spark some anxiety at first but can actually reveal more about your honey than you might initially think. You can go into how long each you has actually gone without sex and if you felt any repercussions because of it. Plus, don’t forget to ask this question in general but also with “in a relationship” attached, too.
11. Do you like getting lap dances?
Not every guy likes getting lap dances or going to strip clubs, even if our culture sometimes makes it seem like that’s the first thing they do whenever on a business trip and away from their wives or girlfriends. But your sweetie might, so it’s good to know. Plus, by asking if he likes lap dances, you have the chance to give him one yourself for the next special occasion.
12. Where is the strangest place you’ve ever had sex?
This is definitely a conversation that must be had in every relationship. Not only is it something that sparks fun and creativity but it’s also good to know where your partner has been in the past. You don’t have to reveal too many details if it makes you uncomfortable but it’s also fun to laugh over the strange things we’ve done in our past.
13. If I allowed you to do anything to me, what would you do?
Now THIS is a question that you probably want to ask during a particularly intimate moment. The thing about a question like this is that it can open up a lot of avenues of conversation and make things really good or really awkward. The main thing you’ll want to remember when asking this, though, is to not judge your partner for what they say and simply let them express themselves.
14. What’s your favorite part of sex?
Sure, everyone might say that the orgasm is their favorite part but that’s not necessarily true. A lot of people love the lead-up, some like the kissing and others still like something else entirely. The best way to find out what your partner likes is by asking, of course, so ask away.
15. How old were you when you lost your virginity?
People often talk about a woman’s virginity, so why not turn that conversation around by asking your boyfriend when he lost his? He might have a sweet story from having sex for the first time with his high school girlfriend or a lewd story that involves his time in college. Either way, listen without judgment… and maybe laugh along, if appropriate.
16. Would you ever watch porn with a girl?
A lot of men hate admitting that they watch porn and, even worse, would never watch porn with their partners. That’s okay but it can also be quite an intimate act to watch porn with your boyfriend. So, in order to nudge him along, ask about his porn habits and whether this is something he would actually consider doing someday.
17. Have you ever kissed me in public just to make someone jealous?
This is another fun question similar to him bragging about you but this one has more to do with PDA and jealousy. It might be fun to hear about the times that he has tried to or wanted to make others jealous, too, and who specifically those others were. An ex-girlfriend? A frenemy? A buddy he competes with?
18. How do you feel about toys in the bedroom?
Although many women these days are comfortable with toys in the bedroom, it’s definitely still a somewhat taboo subject in couples. Why? Because men often don’t need toys in their solo time (unlike women) so they don’t know how to deal with it. Ask about how he feels about toys and begin the conversation of whether there are any you could experiment with together.
19. What’s the dirtiest thing you have ever done?
Similar to the question about the strangest place he’s had sex but not quite like that. The dirtiest thing he has ever done might be a very different answer and definitely one that you want to hear. Don’t be afraid to share your own answer to this question too, and that might lead to another part of a fun conversation.
20. What is a fantasy you’ve never shared with anyone?
You’ll want to ask this final question when you are having an intimate moment, preferably in bed. It can be difficult to share something like this with your partner for both men and women, so make sure that you are in a safe and comfortable place when you ask about his ultimate fantasy. And then, just listen…
