    "to bed" vs "onto bed"

    Hi,


    I heard something as below but can't remember certain part of it.
    "Tom! You are such an womanizer! For Chris sake would you stop for one second thinking about how to get a girl to bed/ onto bed?"


    Which is natural? Or how would you say it?


    Thanks!

    So would I, in the context of womanisers. The female I have got to bed most is my own daughter.

    If I get someone to bed, I ensure that they end up in bed, either for their own good, or for the peace of mind of others. If I get someone into bed, my motives are less clear without sufficient context. I may be ensuring their own good, or that of others, or I may be being lascivious.
