Every day we are barraged with images of sex selling us commodities and ideas. Viral images and media tell us what is 'sexy,' but the real life manifestations of these supposed turn-ons are often just weird and awkward. Of course beach sex looks like the perfect fantasy when it's filmed at dusk with a shallow-focus lens on a miraculously empty, windless shore, but in reality, the logistical challenges of such an operation are enough to turn someone off.
One redditor asked the internet to share examples of things that are supposed to turn us on, but are actually pretty un-sexy in reality, and the resulting thread is hilarious. Whether you find these responses relatable, inaccurate, or revelatory, they're sure to at least be entertaining.
