Sex in real life is light years away from what we’ve witnessed in reel life. Like movies hardly depict the awkwardness that follows moments after you’ve peaked. And so, while there are many bits about sex that are no less than sheer perfection, the entire process can be tiresome, messy, and even unsatisfying, many a time.

Reddit user u/pocketcrackers asked other Redditors on the popular r/AskReddit community to describe the worst part about sex for them. And people obliged with responses that are just too relatable.
