    Say it with me: PEE AFTER YOU HAVE SEX.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the things movies always get wrong about sex. Here are the best replies:

    1. When watches, necklaces, socks, shoes, and other accessories are never removed before sex.

    Sony Pictures

    2. Or, you know, when women keep their bras on during sex.

    Universal Pictures


    3. When women just lay in bed after sex instead of rushing to the bathroom to PEE!


    4. When men are able to slide into a woman with one thrust and there's no awkward fumbling around or fancy maneuvering.


    5. When only skinny people are seen having sex β€” there's a lack of representation when it comes to plus-sized and disabled people.

    The CW


    6. When sex only happens under the covers even though we ALL know how hot β€” temperature-wise, that is β€” sex can be.


    7. When there's always a sexy striptease instead of people awkwardly trying to get out of their skinny jeans.

    The CW


    8. When sex is always serious, instead of funny or giggly or, let's face it, awkward.

    Paramount Pictures


    9. When the woman's makeup somehow looks MORE flawless post-coitus than pre-coitus.


    10. When the room is filled with hundreds of candles even though the decision to have sex was made five minutes ago.

    11. When black characters have sex and there isn't a headscarf in SIGHT!


    12. When two people orgasm at the same time.

    13. When no one showers after sex β€” and if they do, it's to have more sex, instead of, you know, rinsing off.

    14. When no one uses lube.

    Focus Features

    15. When couples are able to seamlessly switch positions without communicating it first.

    17. Or, you know, when couples can't even make it to the bedroom and have sex against a wall.

    19. When couples don't engage in dirty talk.
