Photographed by Lula Hyers.
Unless you talk it out beforehand (which we'd recommend), it's hard to predict what will come out of your partner's mouth during sex. For every dirty talk pro out there, there's someone who searches for the perfect steamy comment only to put their foot squarely in their mouth. Hey, these things aren't one-size-fits-all.
And since many of us let our guards down while we have sex, that can lead to some, shall we say, candid moments and remarks. Of course, some comments (a cheesy joke) are easier to laugh off than others (a partner making an intentional dig at you while doing the deed). How you respond in the moment is up to you, but there's no rule against telling your friends (or the internet) what went down afterward (with discretion, of course).
Ahead, we've rounded up some of the most cringe-worthy things people on Reddit have said or been told during sex.* Share your own stories in the comments — if you can bear the awkwardness.
*Just to be clear: We don't judge what people consensually do or say in their sex lives — these are just things that the posters themselves deemed no-nos.
