    People Are Sharing The Most Uncomfortable Things That Happened To Them During Sex, And Some Of These Truly Just Took Me Out

    Feeling some secondhand pain and embarrassment.

    I think we can all agree that sex is great! But every once in a while, things don't go exactly as planned while you're having it.


    And recently, Reddit user u/disturbedcrow4268 posed this question to the AskReddit community: "What was the most uncomfortable thing that happened to you during sex? Did you stop?"

    The thread quickly went viral, with thousands of replies. Here are some of the top-voted and best comments (some of these will have you saying ouch, FYI):

    1. "Was on the bottom and my eyes opened for a split second and something appeared to be moving on the ceiling. I opened them again just in time to see a spider which proceeded fall onto my face."


    2. "She was getting in position to be on top, somehow she slipped and spiked my full-mast jonny with her knee. I saw stars."


    3. "Ex-girlfriend’s cat jumped onto my ass and dug its claws in. We stopped."

    4. "My husband was going down on me one night, I had my eyes closed when he blew a raspberry into my cooch. I didn’t realize he had burst out laughing because our Yorkie dog had climbed onto his back and then sat on his shoulder watching him, probably wondering what he was eating."


    5. "Sudden back spasm. Not good. Had to stop. Made me feel really old."


    6. "Dislocated my shoulder and got concussion. Shoulder popped back in, and we carried on."

    7. "Was riding him pretty hard. I had an upset stomach, but pushed through it. Farted on his balls. Not a toot…a full-blown fart, he heard it, felt it, and tried to hide his laugh. I was so embarrassed I got off. We are married now."


    8. "My ex and I were having sex in her living room when we realized that we hadn't drawn the shades. She noticed this because three kids had their faces pressed up to the window watching us. Yes we stopped, no we did not remember to pull the shades closed the next time."


    9. "I discovered my ex was cheating on me while we were having sex. She was on top of me, and we were going at it pretty hot and heavy when I noticed her phone kept getting messages. I went to turn it off when I saw a message pop-up from some guy that I knew she was friendly with. Needless to say it was a pretty uncomfortable ride to the finish line. Yes, I finished before confronting her about it."

    10. "Was with one of my 'friends with benefits' my senior year of high school. I was in my bed, in the doggy style position. My dad walked in on us and the guy I was fucking just kept going. He literally looked at my dad and said, 'We’ll be done in a minute' and went back to it. My dad just walked out without a word."


    11. "Gave a blowjob after dinner — but didn't wait long enough after it. Tried deep-throating it. He got really into it and I started gagging, nothing out of the ordinary for us. Only that this time I really started retching and puked all over him. I felt super embarrassed, but he was cool with it. We laughed it off, he helped me clean things up and now it's a nice question for 'Never have I ever.'"


    12. "There's a knock on my door, it's my mom asking if she can come in. I say a loud and resounding NO. She opens the door anyway because she did not take the time to process what was said. Mood ruiner for sure."

    13. "Blew my urethra ejaculating and filled a condom with blood."


    14. "Accidentally pooped on him — was having a celiac attack at the time. We stopped, tried not to throw up and cleaned everything it touched. Needless to say, we don't get freaky until we're certain it's over now. I'm married to that guy now, so he was definitely a keeper."


    And lastly...

    15. "Girlfriend was on top and really enjoying herself. My dick had apparently made an oversized impression on her because she went up waaaaaaaay too high and then slammed back down. Dick bent, I cried, she cried, there was no finishing after that."
