Encountering the occasional embarrassing moment during sex is inevitable. Whether you're walked in on or have a little too much "drank in the tank," the result is instant mortification--for you and her. But don't worry: There's a way to survive every awkward sexual encounter. We took five more-common-than-you'd-imagine scenarios to sex educator Barbara Carrellas, author of Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century, who gave us rock-solid advice on how to fix slipups between the sheets.
The fun ends early
It’s a killjoy for her—and pretty embarrassing for you—when it all ends in less than 60 seconds. When you haven’t seen your girl in a while (hey, long distance can be a killer for the little guy), it's easy to get too excited, too fast.
Deal with it: Every man suffers from premature ejaculation at one time or other. If it's an occasional occurrence, don't worry about it. There are infinite ways you can give your partner pleasure and orgasms without using your penis. If PE is an ongoing problem, you can learn ways to last longer,” Carrellas says.
You didn't have time to shower
Your girl surprised you, and you didn’t have time to lather up after your workout. You’re embarrassed of what things may smell like down below, but you obviously don't want to say no to her—or gross her out.
Deal with it: "The key here is prevention," Carrellas says. "Take a shower! If you weren't expecting to have sex and are suddenly presented with the opportunity, invite your partner to join you."
