We have all heard about being an animal in bed, and the comparative connotation to an animal as it relates to your performance under the sheets is not as strange as you may think. In fact, it can be quite positive, speaking directly to a person's nature in between the sheets.

So, Flair asked its readers: if you were to akin your partner's personality or performance in bed to an animal, which animal would he or she be?

Here are a few interesting responses:

Koala bear: He's very cuddly and most times he's a quiet person. And like the koala bear, he's easy to find because he is always in one place. But koala bears, though they're cute and cuddly, can be dangerous.

- T.H., female, 24

Cat: My ex-girlfriend was all cute, sweet and innocent to the outside world, but once she gets me in bed she becomes aggressive, acting out on occasion through scratches, making her presence known.
