1. We tell you the reason
There is a reason why hot and steamy sex scenes in romantic movies run shivers down our spine. For starters, they are incredibly passionate and secondly, they are downright unrealistic. Yes, you read that right. There is a reason why no matter how hard you try, it is just not possible to replicate those erotic sexual escapades in your bedroom.
So, even if you have tried everything from a seductive dance with your partner to doing it in the washroom, we tell you five reasons why real-life sex is never as good as it is in the movies.
2. Our bodies are not perfect (and it is okay)
From those perfect curves to chiselled physiques, the lovemaking scenes onscreen are shot from the best angles, which is the reason it looks so great. However, real-life is flawed. We have stretch marks, flab, man boobs, and body hair. We are not perfect and it often makes us self-conscious. Those great looking faces on screen may lead to you having body image issues.
3. Hello, morning breath
We often see couples in the movies going for it right after waking up in the morning. This makes us wonder, don’t they have to worry about bad breath? We never see couples brushing their teeth or using a mouthwash before getting hot and heavy. This scenario is just NOT possible in real life.
4. It is NOT that effortless
Having sex in real life is not as effortless as portrayed in the movies. Your clothes just do not get off just like that. From fumbling with bra hooks to struggling with the button of the jeans, taking off clothes, in reality, is just not as sexy.
5. You feel a little bloated
Burps and farts surely do not make for a sexy addition to your steamy sex scenes. However, we are all humans and being bloated and gassy comes naturally to us.
6. There is no pausing for protection
You seldom see actors on screen, pausing in the midst of the action to open that condom packet. There is no break in the passionate flow or makeout session. However, it is strongly advisable to put that condom on in real life to avoid unwanted pregnancy and STDs.
