So, we have well established that in my opinion (and in many of yours), sex is a beautiful thing.
With that being said, some things can really affect the “beauty” of sex. Because sex, like any other activity, varies each time, place and way you do it, there are a slew of awkward moments that can sneak up on you. I’m not going to tell you how to avoid them, because you can’t. But we can figure out how to deal with them and why they occur.
Vaginal flatulence, varts, also known as queefing
Guys: Did you just fart on me mid-sex?
Girls: Oh no. (Squeezing legs together as hard as possible)
I think we can all agree that this is ranked pretty high up there with the most awkward and uncomfortable situation you will ever be in. Neither party knows exactly where the noise came from, but they definitely don’t like it. A queef is an emission or expulsion of air from the vagina. During sex, air can get trapped in the vagina— so what goes in, must come out. It’s not a waste gas, so it doesn’t smell.
As for how to deal with it? A simple ‘oops' and a smile can go a long way. Guys— don’t make it a big deal, it is embarrassing enough already. Let it slide or laugh it off.
Can't get it up?
Some guys might tell you that they have complete control over when and where they get an erection.
Even when aroused, some men do not have erections, and vice versa. While it can make for an uncomfortable attempt at sex, it does not mean that your partner is not into you if he can’t get aroused.
The solution? Continue to do things that you both find mutually pleasurable. Most men find it embarrassing or stressful if their partner tries too hard to make them erect.
Someone gets hurt
Sex is a physical activity, so there are chances of getting hurt. This category is probably the source of the funniest stories you will ever hear. Like the moment when you are trying a new position where the guy has to hold you up in some crazy position and you hit the floor.
A (cough-cough) “friend” of mine once had an experience too funny not to share.
My ex-boyfriend was about to jump on top of me. I did a poor job of anticipating what he was trying to do and abruptly sat up. The result? Him head-butting me in the face so hard that my nose started bleeding, and I began sobbing profusely.
Yeah, that happened.
This is a more extreme example, but injuries can happen during sex. If it is minor and just uncomfortable, laugh it off and keep up the good work.
So, even though it seems like the end of the world, relax.
Sex can be amazing, fun, passionate, life changing or just plain awkward. I find comfort in knowing that other people experience the same mortifying moments every day. So, laugh off the awkward moments, treat the injuries, and enjoy making stories that you will remember forever.
Once again, until next time.
