50 Sexual Faux Pas -- How Many Have You Done?

When we take off our clothes and agree to go horizontal (or vertical or perpendicular or etc.) with another person, we agree to make ourselves vulnerable and that vulnerability ... well, sometimes it leads to humiliation.

Yes, sex can be fantabulous, knock-your-socks-off delicious and it can also be smelly, loud, and slurpy.

Even those of us who have been with our partner forever aren't immune. The other day, my husband, a man I usually joke has only five senses (and smell isn't one of them), refused to hug me until I had showered.


"I can't tell if that's you or our son's diaper," he told me after I sat on his lap.

It wasn't my sexiest moment.

In my defense, I had just run 6 miles in 90 degrees, but still. Ouch.

This is just one of many sexual faux pas that many of us have either experienced or committed at one point or another.
