Some of us can easily and openly talk about sex at any given moment, but others are still not comfortable with it, and still believe that talking about sex is totally taboo.
At the end of the day, no one has to talk about their personal sex life – that’s why it’s called intimate. But, as adults, we should be able to mention the word without blushing or fear that we’re going to be severely judged by others.
When it comes to communicating with your partner, openness is important, and you don’t have to talk about hot, dirty sex – or what some might consider an “unnatural sex act” – to be open. Talking frankly about sex can do wonders for your relationship. And if it doesn’t need any improvements, we’ve prepared some funny sex quotes that you could send each other and have a good laugh.
Here are 50 sex quotes and sayings to share with your partner:
