Unless you’re Christian and Ana from Fifty Shades of Grey, sex is profoundly awkward and embarrassing. Actually… wait. Asking your partner whether vagina balls are meant to go in your butt is pretty embarrassing.
EUGH sex is always weird and no one should suggest otherwise.
Objectively one of the worst experiences, however, is when someone walks in on you having sex. It’s traumatic. You’re so… vulnerable. You get flashbacks, like, as it’s happening. You see the judgment in their eyes.
So to make you feel less alone about that moment that continues to haunt you, even years after it happened, we asked five women about the most embarrassing time someone walked in on them having sex. And Jesus, people need to start locking doors.
“I really did want a Diet Coke.”
My mum HATED my ex boyfriend, and to be fair he was a total jerk. However, our breakup was long and drawn out over a year, including loads of ex-sex. One day he had come over when my mum was out. I was living at home and attending uni at the time. She’d come home unexpectedly and I managed to literally hide him under the bed in time. She asked if I wanted anything from the shop while he was hiding beneath me, looking very casual laying about in underwear for some reason, and I asked her for a Diet Coke.
She left, and we resumed getting fully naked for shenanigans, only for her to return five minutes later mid-thrust. Turns out she meant the corner shop that was all of 50 metres away. She opened the door, surveyed the scene, flew into a rage and flung the Diet Coke at the wall. It exploded on impact. Then she literally pulled my naked boyfriend off me and out the door, demanding he leave and she tried to force him down the stairs – again, naked. “He needs his pants!” I begged. “Diet Coke! Diet Coke! You liar!” she was screaming. “I did want a Diet Coke,” I protested.
