From the first time I had to sex to the very last time I had sex a couple weeks ago, my sex life has been riddled in embarrassment. Why? Because I'm a walking catastrophe for the most part. I'm that woman who, if I dared to try a striptease, would somehow manage to turn it into a disaster — and I know this because I tried and smacked my head on the fireplace mantle in my quest to be sexy. Luckily, for both my partner and I, we could laugh it off, but it didn't erase the moments of embarrassment. There's nothing worse than trying to be sexy and confident, than watching it, or rather experiencing it, as it backfires... like all the times I've strut uptown in heels and felt my ankle give out. Total. Catastrophe.
But while my list of sex-related embarrassments is fairly long, I've always been able to laugh at them. Well, laugh them off 98 percent of the time, because if you want to be an awesome lay, you can't take yourself too seriously. And, obviously, I am an awesome lay. (Actually, jury is still out on that one, but I digress.)
So while I'd never suggest that my embarrassing sex stories trump yours or anyone else's, because life isn't a competition (or so we tell ourselves), I will say, I have some doozies and they're worth sharing. Not just because sharing is caring, but because you're not alone in your embarrassing sex moments and nothing proves that like commiserating... and laughing together.
