8/10 awkward if it's your flatmate. 11/10 if it's your mum.

2. An animal walking in on you.

They don't know what's going on. Or do they?

3. Not realising your bedroom isn't soundproof.

People still have ~needs~ at Christmastime, when they're forced to cohabit with elderly relatives.

4. Faking an O.

Sometimes you'd rather just pretend the sex was good than deal with their hurt little face.

5. Losing your ~mojo~.

Often occurs after a really dull unsexy thought drifts into your mind, like whether you ever replied to that phone message your nan left.

6. Fumbling a condom.

7. Peaking too early.

Sometimes it's all just too much.

8. Letting a little fart slip out.

You thought you could get away with a silent one, but oh no – there it pops. If you survive this you're probably onto something good.

9. All other body noises.

Whether it's one of those weird burps that gets trapped in your throat, or the slappetty-slap of groin on thigh, most human body noises are awkward in sex but we just gotta live with it.
