9 Awkward Sex Things No One Talks About
This is SO accurate.
When two characters have sex in a movie, it always seems so perfect. Everyone’s magically lubricated from the get-go. Both people come at the exact same time. And at the end, the couple starts cuddling immediately—no cleanup necessary.
Of course, it doesn’t happen that way in the real world. Sex is great, but it’s also filled with so many awkward moments we never see in the movies, let alone talk about amongst each other.
Well, a recent Reddit thread set out to change that. It asked people: “What are the ‘not so fun’ parts of sex that no one talks about?”
Reader, the answers are hilarious—and extremely relatable. Here are some of the highlights.
Stray pubes came up in conversation.
Redditor isamario complained about “fishing out the pube from your mouth after going down on someone.” Thankfully, a fellow commenter swooped in with a genius solution: “If you get one during, lick the inner thigh to wipe get the stray out of your mouth.”
People with penises and vaginas bonded over the challenges of spreading the labia.
“When they don’t [spread]… And everything isn’t wet yet and they try to jam it in and the labia goes along for a very dry painful ride? Oof,” oniraa wrote. Labia owners pointed out its painful for them, too, and shared stories of trying to mitigate that discomfort. “YES. This happens to me way too often and I have to reach down to pretend like I’m playing with myself when I’m actually rescuing my poor labia then making sure it’s still attached,” xpoloroidx said.
Thankfully, the solutions to this problem are super simple: lube and lots of foreplay.
