Sex, like all things in life, has the potential to get really awkward in certain moments. Sometimes it’s because things don’t go as planned. Other times it’s because your partner blurts out something totally, well, unsexy.
It’s even worse when you’re over 50 — whether you’re newly dating or trying to heat things up with your long-term love. Today, the Twitterverse was thinking the exact same thing when #MakeSexAwkwardIn5Words started trending. The hilarious hashtag has spurred tweet upon tweet of things that will take any romp from hot to not in a matter of seconds.
I usually do this alone.
