5 Sex Sins That Can Ruin Your Love Life -- and How to Avoid Them

Sex Sin #5: Being Easily Embarrassed

We've all been there. One minute you're groaning and moaning with unbridled lust, then suddenly the next noise is, shall we say, less erotic? Or who hasn't turned on the lights to discover that her period arrived early, and the bed looks like a battlefield? Only last week I woke up to see a (new) lover staring at me with absolute astonishment: I hadn't removed my makeup the night before, and the false eyelashes I'd been wearing for a film shoot had worked their way down my face and looked like little spiders sleeping on my cheeks. A friend of mine recently humiliated herself by pushing her new boyfriend downward, then suddenly remembering that she'd applied yeast infection cream a few hours before. She pulled him back up in the nick of time for the confession.

Get over It

Embarrassing, but highly amusing sex stories abound -- and for good reason. We're dealing with something that forces us to get up close and personal with someone else, and that means there's very little you can get away with. Smelly breath and smelly body parts, openings and orifices that start "talking" on their own accord, there are so many potential disasters, you'd have to avoid being in the same room altogether to guarantee looking smooth and cool all the time. Give up now.
