(Newser) – Let’s face it, sex isn’t always great. Beth Mann at Salon breaks down the “seemed like a good idea at the time” list of most overrated erotic acts:

  • Sex on the beach: “In real life the beach is sandy, the temperature unpredictable, the mosquitoes, the jellyfish, the police…”
  • Porn-style sex: “It’s more of an extreme sport than a sexual act.”

  • One-night stands: “Is she supposed to stay overnight? I don’t want her to stay overnight. What if she stays overnight?”
  • Sex involving clothes ripping: "Every once in a while, this caveman act works. But most of the time, I think, ‘You ass, you just ripped my good shirt. Ass.'"
  • Sex in tight quarters: “Just make sure the car doesn’t have a stick shift."

Orgies are a little too diplomatic for my tastes, says one commenter. You can't just say, 'You get your hands off of me. But you, come here.' Also, that guy at the bottom appears to be puking.
