Whether it is your first, second or tenth time having sex, awkward things can happen in the heat of the moment that may leave you with few questions. For example, there is a chance you may get your period or maybe there are unexpected body noises that feel like they need addressing. Obviously there is nothing wrong with anything that your body does during sex, so there is no reason for you to feel embarrassed.
Awkward things that happens during sex
Attractive, right? Like, movie-sex is not real. So instead of your glistening, sweaty bodies moving together in perfect harmony on your way to orgasm, you get side-by-side sex where your sweaty bodies have suctioned together and began making farting noises between his stomach and your back.
Getting your period
You are getting it on with your partner until you realize that you unexpectedly just got your period. This is quite normal — I mean, you just can’t control your time of the month. Some people are totally into period sex, and some are not, so figure out what you are into and what works for you. And if you choose to have sex on your period, know that it can get a little messy and it is not pregnancy-proof!
Choosing to spit or swallow
To prevent that awkward moment when you are making eye contact with the dude who just came in your mouth and he can clearly see the gears turning in your head as you considering whether to swallow or spit, make that decision before you give a blow job.
That way, you can run straight for the bathroom before he has time to be offended.
Orgasm is taking too long
Both sexes can struggle with an O that takes a while to appear. For men, the idea of going down on his girl for 40-minutes, or lasting for an extended period of time during intercourse may seem more like a chore than a fun evening in.
The same goes for women who end up getting a sore wrist, lock-jaw or a raw vagina while waiting out her man’s orgasm. While frustrating and an embarrassing, just remember the brownie points forthcoming, once your partner gets off.
He loses his erection
Honestly, whichever partner you are in this situation, it really sucks, but it happens. A lot of men have performance anxiety, or some simply put off coming for too long in order to make sure you get there.
Whatever the case, losing an erection during sex is definitely a turn-off.
Your partner wants to dirty talk
Some would welcome the addition of dirty talk into the bedroom, while others would list it as an awkward thing. Nothing takes you out of the mood quite like being asked to recite a p()rn-script. There are so many dirty phrases you can say to someone before things start getting repetitive.
He finishes too soon
Women understand that their bodies, movements can be an incredible turn-on during sex. We are totally flattered that you find us so hot that you just couldn’t hold back any longer, but if you come before we do and assume the fun is over, and then you may find we are not so forgiving.
Your neighbors hear
You live in an apartment and you have just had the loudest, most orgasmic sex ever. While you may be satisfied with your partner’s performance, your neighbors probably are not satisfied with yours. The next morning you wake up with a sticky note on the door that reads: “We share a wall with your bedroom. Keep it down!” Pissing off the neighbors is probably not the best way to get a welcome-to-the-apartment party.
Sex builds intimacy and can be embarrassing and incredibly awkward. But remember that we are all human, so don’t worry so much. Learn to laugh off those little moments and just enjoy yourself.
