Have you ever wondered if you're overthinking — or perhaps underthinking — this whole sex thing?
Recently, Reddit user u/DOBLEDEDO posted in r/AskReddit: "What are some basic things about having sex that a lot of people don't realize?" and TBH, I think most of us could benefit from stating the not-always-so-obvious obvious.
Here were some of the top answers 😜😜😜:
1. "Women are more likely to orgasm from a grinding motion, rather than thrusting in and out."
3. "Hooking up is not as clean as they show in movies and TV shows. You don’t go from having sex to getting up, putting on a skirt with no underwear, and getting back to the office."
5. "When they're close to orgasm, do the same thing that's working! Not something else."
7. "In my personal opinion and experience, sex is 70% foreplay and 30% actual penetration. Good foreplay can save us guys from worrying about not lasting long enough.”
8. "Everyone has different needs and desires, and just because you're satisfied doesn't mean they are."
10. "A lot of people don't actually like or are ready to do many of the things that are standard in porn. I'm not talking about unrealistic scenarios, but actual sex acts and positions."
11. "Always move stuff from the bed that is a pain in the ass to wash. I’ve ruined the mood before by not wanting to wash and dry a king-size comforter that was washed recently."
12. "Sex is nothing like porn. It's awkward, a lot of 'famous' positions can be uncomfortable, some people are really quiet. Beds are squeaky. Animals will jump up on the bed. There will be weird smells and sounds. Laughing is okay."
17. "Just because your last partner liked how you did it, your next might not. All people are different."
