THESE are the biggest bedroom turn-offs, according to hundreds of Reddit users.
Sex is subjective to the people involved, but there are unspoken rules about what you should and should not do.
A user on a recent Reddit thread asked the community: “What is a big no-no during intercourse?”
The post garnered 788 comments in just six hours – here are the top eight:
1. Lying about one very important thing
“Lying about being on birth control.”
2. Don’t take digs at other people’s nether regions
“Don’t insult anyone’s genitals during sex. Women don’t need a lecture on their pubic hair situation.”
3. No talking necessary
“Small talk. Please don’t ask me what the weather is like right now.”
4. Not communicating about what you want
“Trying kinky things without first discussing them with your partner.”
5. Being inconsiderate
“Getting off without ever making sure that your lover also got off.”
6. Making a big statement
“Saying ‘I love you’ for the first time [during sex].”
7. Forgoing the warm up
“Skip foreplay. It takes time to get things going and foreplay is half the fun.”
8. Not taking control
“Be passive or seem needy. Please don’t ask ‘what do you want me to do’ or ’is that okay?’ Just do it.
“Grab something. Slap something. I don’t care. Just do it with confidence and authority and it will take me to heaven.”
