What Does it Mean to be Asexual?
We’ve all had those days where you just hate the idea of having sex.
Sometimes it’s because of stress, or your period, or just because you ate an ungodly amount of spaghetti and feel ready to explode.
You may have even heard people say things like ‘I’m so asexual right now’ or ‘I think I’ve turned asexual since my breakup’.
But real asexuality isn’t just a temporary reluctance to have sex.
It’s actually more like a sexual orientation, so instead of perhaps being attracted to two genders (bisexual), you’re attracted to no genders.
Asexuality is one of the most misunderstood sexual orientations, so let’s clear up some of the myths and misconceptions about it once and for all.
46 Things Nobody Wants to Hear in Bed
Somtimes, sex can be very awkward. It’s unfortunate, but it’s true. When you’re naked and getting it on with your partner, whether it’s your long-term squeeze or a one-night stand, a single wrong line can kill the mood entirely.
Of course, if you’re super comfortable around someone there’s nothing wrong with some jokes and giggles during sex, but if it’s a new partner or you don’t know them particularly well, knowing where the boundaries are isn't always so simple.
So to help you avoid any awkward silences in the place of heavy breathing and contented moans, I’ve put together a list of some of the most cringey, awkward, and uncomfortable things that you should definitely never say in the bedroom.

Whenever you walk into your local high street bookshop, smutty novels are seemingly jumping off the shelves at you.
You know what I mean - those books with moody, dark covers and generic titles like 'Beautiful Unbound', or something.
But erotic fiction wasn't always so accessible. The erotic novel dates back hundreds of years before Fifty Shades of Grey burst onto the scene, and until the 1960s it was pretty hard to get your hands on a copy of your favourite filth.
So, to celebrate the release of Fifty Shades Freed movie (squee!), I flipped through some of history's most scandalous novels to see how they hold up in 2018.
