In reading the responses, I wondered, is it exemplary behavior for a man to "stop" when a woman says so or is it just "normal" and expected. Do men believe they should be praised for showing restraint in that situation or is it just a given that of course they have to put desire aside in favor of the other person's needs? Other than telling a man in advance what I am comfortable with and not (such as if I stay over at a man's place early on and do not plan on having sex, I tell him in advance to avoid mixed signals/teasing), I have never overtly praised a man for showing restraint or stopping.
I realize I am asking for generalizations - so of course individual points of view are appreciated!
