Sex is surprising, to say the least. (Source: iStock.)
Redditors have answered this golden question: “What is something about sex that you wish someone had told you?”
We must agree that yes, all of this info would have been very useful to know.
1. Farts… but not from where you’d expect.
“I did not realise that so much air would get trapped in my vagina and the sound it would make after he pulled out,” recalled one Redditor. Otherwise known as the “queef”, the vaginal fart is a very normal part of sex. Our advice? Laugh it off. And use it as an excuse to disguise real farts.

2. Visit the toilet. Pronto.
We can’t agree with this advice more. “That ladies you really, really, really should pee after sex. No exceptions, unless you’d like an annoying UTI.”
3. “How messy it actually is.”
Many concurred that sex on TV and in pornography appears seamless and flowing, whereas sex in real life is a chaotic jumble of limbs, appendages, lube, and condoms.
But, as one Redditor observed, “messy” can be a good thing:
“[I] overheard two women in a bar a few years ago. One of them was complaining about that point exactly. ‘Ugh.. sex is just so... messy.’
The other said ‘Well Tacos are messy...’
Nods all around.”
Let us not forget: Tacos are delicious. Enough said.
Sex toys can be good, mess-free fun.
4. “Want to come over… FOR SEXUAL INTERCOURSE?”
Said no-one, ever. A possible Aussie local, PamelaOfMosman, lamented her experience of “When you get invited back to a guy's place for coffee - there's no coffee.” The same can be said, these days, of being invited over to watch “Netflix and chill”. (Post continues after gallery.)
