27 Awkard Things That Happen During Sex That Are NORMAL
Start writing a post

We've all been there, you're rolling in the sheets when something embarrassing happens and all the sexual tension disappears in mid-air. Honestly, can anything be worse timing?

No need to fret, though. Weird, uncomfortable, awkward things happen to the best of us – yes, even when we are all hot and bothered.

While these unspoken, inconvenient incidents are entirely normal for both parties, if you're anything like me, they can feel like really big deals. Having gone through my fair share of sexual mishaps, I've learned that, really, it's no biggie, but I'm human, and I still get self-conscious in front of my crush I'm trying to seduce.

There are times that, in my head, the mood is ruined and I just want to throw a blanket over my head so I can pretend my partner can't see me anymore. Maybe I'll just catch a plan and move to anywhere but here? I just don't want to talk about it. Can we pretend it never happened?

No matter what, let's be strong and imagine we are living in a real-life romantic comedy. There should be zero shame when it comes to these precious, run-of-the-mill moments that act as comedic relief. This can still be the fairytale we dreamed of – just with some memorable added extras.

Here are 27 normal, yet cringe-worthy encounters that happen when you're going all the way:

1. Someone gets seriously injured.

2. Your partner has a rhythm going and is really thrusting until they slam up against you.

Whether it's a body slam or they hit your labia, vulva, or clitoris, no one is happy.

3. That new position you really wanted to try sounded better in your head and didn't go as planned.

4. Someone starts singing along to the baby making music.

Totally guilty of this one.

5. Someone just isn't into it anymore.

6. There's a queef happening, and it just won't stop.

AKA vaginal flatulence.

7. When you or your partner can't cum no matter how hard you try. 

8. One of you have to pee really badly and can't think of anything else.

9. Your lover "accidentally" tries to jam their way into the wrong hole.

Anal requires three things: Consent, foreplay, and a bucket ton of lube.

10. A pet, baby, anyone is watching.

11. Someone finishes way too early and way too quickly.

I always take it as a compliment. **wink wink**

12. Someone walks in and disrupts everything.

13. Someone loses feelings in their leg or gets a cramp.

14. One of you start to laugh a lot more than just a sultry giggle.

Can the words "sultry" and "giggle" even go together?

15. Someone gets distracted and zones out.

16. The sound when your bodies flap together.

Don't lie, you know what I'm talking about.

17. Smeared makeup all over your face, their face, and all over the sheets.

18. You run out of lube and The D won't go in. 

19. The sex never ends.

Yes, for some, there is such thing as too long.

20. The dick, toy, or all of the above just keep slipping out.

21. Someone says something they don't mean, like "I love you" or their ex's name.

22. Someone falls asleep.

Bonus points if snoring is involved.

23. When you're done and you want to leave, but you don't know how to say, "Goodbye."

24. Aunt Flo crashes the party.

25. Someone, anyone farts.

26. You move a way that your body is not supposed to move and now you throw out your back.

27. There is a weird smell and it's throwing your game off.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
