Whether they just walked in and sat down, or you started a movie you knew nothing about, watching a sex scene with your parents is totally uncomfortable. Use your parents’ HBO GO and enjoy your movies privately.

When we watched this entire movie and just wanted to change our address to 123 Living Under a Rock Road From Now On, Embarrassingville, NY 10012.

Level of awkwardness: Being involved in a very public, and very loud "conscious uncoupling."

7. Election

When an imaginary hot and heavy scene between teacher and student became too much to handle, all we wanted to do was drop out of school.

Level of awkwardness: Laughing alone, five minutes after a joke was told, because you really didn't get it at first.

8. Any episode of Girls

Whenever any of the girls got down, we wanted to take the elevator all the way to the top floor and stay there for a really, really, really long time.

Level of awkwardness: Getting caught talking to your cat when you thought no one else was home.

9. Jawbreaker

When we watched the "big stick" scene, all we wanted was a very high tree with a few branches to climb up.

Level of awkwardness: Accidentally liking an ex's tweet when you no longer follow them on Twitter.

We wanted to pull the sheets over our head when Nicolas Cage and Elizabeth Shue gambled with love.

Level of awkwardness: Sending a nasty gossip text about a certain someone to that certain someone.

11. The Lucky One

When the shower scene got real steamy, all we wanted to do was cool off. Alone. By ourselves. Forever.

Level of awkwardness: Flipping someone off on the road and immediately getting stuck next to them at a red light.

12. Any episode of Game Of Thrones

Whenever things got racy on Game of Thrones, we wanted winter to hurry up and end so things weren't as uncomfortable.

Level of awkwardness: Using a fake ID to get into a bar and running into your teacher who's there on a date with someone who's not their spouse.

So go. Take your HBO GO and run. Run far away and enjoy your sex scenes in private.
