19 very real thoughts people with anxiety have during sex
If you have anxiety, then you probably have thought these thoughts about sexy time. And just know you’re not alone.
1. Did I wear cute underwear?
What if I didn’t wear cute underwear? What if I’m wearing period underwear? Should I go to the bathroom and check on the undie sitch? Should I just take my underwear off completely and stash it in my purse? Will that be weird?
2. What if I didn’t shower and they notice?
No, really. When did I shower last? Do I smell gross or just ~~musky~~?
3. The noises…
The horror! The horror!
4. What if the condom breaks?
Or what if it is has a tiny hole? Or what if it slips off?
5. What if I GET PREGNANT?
Life = over.
6. Am I making the right amount of sounds of approval?
Or do I sound like a dying animal? Is that sexy, perhaps?

Are they enjoying this or are they having the WORST TIME OF THEIR LIVES?

Should I ask? Will that make things awkward? Will I feel badly about myself for the rest of my life?

Maybe I should do something CrAaAazY.
13. Like, should I spank them?
Just a casual lil’ spank just when they least expect it?
14. Is my dirty talk hottt or just really weird?
Should I just shut up?
15. Is that a stray hair on my thigh?
Oh god. Oh god. It is. Should I just pluck it out with my bare hands when they’re not looking?

I knew I shouldn’t have had all that wine! Damn it!
