Why Sex Is Still So Incredibly Awkward
It's nothing to be ashamed of.

Sex is hugely paradoxical. It is the most evolutionarily structured act we can partake in. The most normal thing we can do is be attracted to another person. It is a universal goal is to find love—ideally with someone with whom the sex is, at the very least, good. Yet, for the most part, people are awkward as hell when it comes to sex, even with those they love.
We acknowledge we're awkward about sex. It's become a landmark of pop culture: uncomfortable couples, odd masturbation scenes, and poorly navigated fetishes are featured in shows like Master of None, Casual, and Love. We watch, laugh (or cringe), and, like this video from the School of Life explains, go about our lives pretending we're sexually liberated while keeping our thoughts about everything from flogging to threesomes to infidelity secret.
As the video suggests, maybe if people start talking about how awkward it is to talk about awkward sex, then we might get somewhere a little more open—and everything might seem a little less weird.
