Sex is often glamorized as a romantic adventure between two people madly in love as they get tangled in their sheets. Other times, people really make it out to be a porn-like kink fest. There's truth in both scenarios — there are millions of ways to get it on and to get off — but no one ever really talks about the lackluster in-between moments. Sure, there are movies that have the token super awkward sex scene, but it doesn't really cover all the grounds of how unsexy sex can be at times. Maybe this is why an Ask Reddit forum popped up where people revealed the non-seductive mishaps that occur when they're in the heat of passion. Keep on reading below to see what these people had to say (they did NOT hold back).
