We all know some or the other trick to make sex even more exciting and fun. Sometimes, however, the tricks that we think work wonders actually don’t do a thing. We’ve rounded up five such sex tips that are extremely popular, but don’t really work the way they’re meant to.
1. Making a lot of noise during sex
It’s kind of sexy to hear affirmative moans. But you’re taking it a little far if you’re making noises that could wake up the neighbours. Loud grunting, groaning and screaming can be a bit unnerving and might just spoil the mood.
2. Giving road head
Car sex can be exciting, but going down on your partner while he’s driving is risky. What they show in the movies doesn’t work in real life, so it’s better to skip the road head and park the car somewhere safe to get things going.
3. Biting/scratching hard
A few soft nibbles and light scratches can be tantalising, even encouraged. But when you go all-out crazy and bite/scratch your partner until you break skin, well, that’s a strict no-no.
4. Sticking a finger somewhere unexpected
By ‘somewhere unexpected’ we mean your partner’s behind. Rimming, which means stimulating someone’s anus during sex, is only fun when the other person is aware about it. Don’t stick a finger up someone’s butt without warning them about it.
5 Bossing your partner around
There’s a dominant partner in every sexual relationship. But when that sexy, dominating personality changes into a rude taskmaster, it ruins all the fun. Don’t be the person who orders his/her partner around and makes him/her do all the work.
6. Using a fork during foreplay
Using household items like a feather duster might work during foreplay, but cutlery items like forks rarely work. Pressing a fork into various different parts of your partner’s body will only elicit an anguished grunt from him, so maybe steer clear of it?
7. Using your tongue too much
Sure, using tongue while kissing can be sexy… if you don’t overdo it. Slobbering all over your partner, dipping your tongue into ears, and generally creating little puddles of saliva in various places on your partner’s body can be quite revolting.
8. Pulling hair
Sure, things can get wild in the heat of the moment, and sure, pulling at your partner’s hair might seem like a good idea, but refrain from pulling too hard. Not only can it be painful, but it can be quite a turn off too.
