Sex has little to do with porn scenes: in real life, you can press your elbow against your partner’s hair, feel a cramp and – let’s be honest – give rise to sounds and smells that are not at all sexy. Below is a list of uncomfortable situations that anyone can fall into, and tips for resolving them.

1. Name your partner by the name of the former / former

This happens all the time, but this does not mean that your current partner will take the situation with humor. The moment will require emotional processing.

What to do

What to do

Remember that this is a good sign – it indicates that you are immersed in what is happening and your feelings. Only by letting go of your body can you enjoy the moment.

What to do

Instead of being embarrassed, laugh. If necessary, take a short break and remind yourself that you are just human.

4. Unexpected liquids
