In this time and age, sex is a really big deal.

Every single day, we come across songs, movies, books and even advertisements with sexual undertones or direct references to sex.

It's important to only try things with your partner that work for you both

It’s so blatant these days that nobody is really ashamed to talk about it anymore – people go on their social media pages to openly talk about their sexual escapades with hundreds of strangers.

Due to all these (mostly unsolicited) bits of information, we now know which sex positions certain kinds of people would enjoy, new tricks we can try with our partners to spice up our love life, and so on.

Among all these interesting sexual stuff, there are some that certain people think are a must or the go-to techniques for mind boggling orgasms, but in actual fact, they are just overrated.

So let’s look at 3 popular sex moves that aren’t exactly as super-duper as many claim.

1. Oral sex: To some people, oral sex is like the best gift you can ever give your partner in bed. While this could be partially true, the reality is that not everybody is excited at the thought of putting their mouth on someone’s genital to give them sexual pleasure. Plus, oral sex requires a bit of practicing before either parties involved can actually enjoy it. It could end up being a sad waste of time and the awkwardness afterwards can put a dent on your confidence in. It’s not a big deal because you can still enjoy mind blowing sex without doing things you’re not quite comfortable with. Just figure out what works for both of you and stick to that.

2. Spanking: Yep, some geniuses somewhere claim that having your butt smacked a couple of times produces some sort of electrifying sexual current in your groin area during sex. But you know things can get out of hand during the throes of pleasure and one could spank their partner a little too hard to even cause bruises. Except the ‘receiver’ is totally into this somewhat physical violence, it’s best to just cut it out.

3. Reverse cowgirl: This one very exhausting sex position for all involved – it takes the babe some extra bursts of energy to keep the groove going, while the guy is left to watch her backside bobbing up and down with really nothing much to fondle while she’s at it. Borinnng!
