People Explain Why They Stopped And Left In The Middle Of A Hook Up
Once you're in "the zone," romantically, it can take a lot to shake you of it. Your partner and you can be so entwined, wrapped up in one another, that the whole earth could move and you would never know.
However, that's not saying there's nothing that could stop you mid-gyrate.
Reddit user Mister2JZ-GTE wanted the mid-coital tea spilled when they asked:
What has made you stop and leave, mid sex?
"So I opened my eyes and looked and he was playing a game on his phone with his other hand."
"Directly behind me is our elliptical... I somehow lost my footing and smoked my heel on the elliptical and proceeding to fall backwards ass first directly into the foot pedal."
"My butt crack hurt so damn much"
"I couldn't continue."
"Only time I can remember it happening is when I was a young lad that had snuck into my lady's house\bed, and her parents woke up and came to check on her. Luckily we heard them coming, (unlike me), so I hid between her bed and the wall while she acted like she was trying to kill a moth; that's what she claimed noise they heard had been. They went to the living room, (right outside her door), and turned on the TV, I climbed out her 1st story window and booked it to my bike and peddles home furiously to furiously do something else."
"We had just watched the film Teeth. I remembered the film, stopped. looked her in eyes and she knew what I was thinking and just said "don't."
"Not quite mid-sex but we were mid foreplay and mostly naked- it was totally me and not her."
"I had just broken up with my Ex and was in a bad place- I had very poor decision sex with the Ex that afternoon, went on a crappy Tinder date, stayed behind and started drinking with this random woman at the bar and was back at her place before I even knew- had a moment of clarity right before and told her I shouldn't be doing this- I'm not in a good mental space. She got mad and cursed me out pretty bad."
"Sad part is I still see her around town especially at punk shows."
"When I was 17, not long after I met the guy who is now my husband, I went to stay at his place where he lived with his mum. She was busy cooking a casual meal so we disappeared into his bedroom for some alone time. As I'm going down on him, she knocks on the door and asks "Does SevenLittleMice eat sausages?" husband responds (I was unable to talk for obvious reasons) "most definitely!"
"We were unable to continue due to uncontrollable laughter 😂"
"I pushed a guy's hair back and suddenly he looked uncannily like Nicholas Cage. I was laughing too much to carry on, so after calming down and apologizing, I left."
"Did go back to finish the job the next day though... But left his hair alone."
"Her arm dislocates. She is in immediate pain, crying, face down."
"I was a medic for my first career. I talk to her calmly and coach breathing."
"Reach forward, grab arm in place, slowly reduce. Pop, back in."
"Big hugs and tears, she admits its the first time she has cried in front of a partner in a while."
"Still seeing her, she is awesome."
Don't Be Rude.
"Girl bit my lip. Like hard enough to draw blood. I'm down for some scratching and biting but this was a bit much. Painful enough to make me see red. Ok, whatever, people get fired up and she didn't mean it like that. I told her that was too much and we both laughed and went back to it, so I figured it was an accident and she was trying to be sexy."
"Not a full minute later she does again and bites even harder. She was on top so I threw her to the side, grabbed my clothes, and walked the 3 blocks home. She was saying something as I slammed the door but I didn't hear it. Never spoke to her again."
"This goes for everyone: If you don't like something being done to your body and they keep doing it after being told, you walk out and don't owe them a response. It's disrespectful."
"I had a friend of mine around and we have had a few drinks. So when we were mid sex she farted and both of us just looked each other and started to laugh for like 10 min. After that we decided that we can't take it serious anymore that day."
That Last Part Felt Unnecessary
"Had some casual sex with this really nice girl and she lived with her cousin and her partner who were lesbians."
"I think we were both making too much noise as they burst into the room and demanded that I leave immediately."
"I tried to reason with them, standing but naked in front of them but they were having none of it."
"I felt more sorry for her as she was really embarrassed but it did make a good story for times likes these."
The Wrong Kind Of Thumping
"S" my girlfriend (at the time) and I were having ourselves a great trip to Pound Town when suddenly I heard the loudest THUMP I've heard in my life. We stopped and looked at each other, thinking, "What the f was that?"
"So I get dressed quickly and check the garage, where I thought the sound came from and... nothing. So then I check the front yard and all I saw was a ton of smoke and a motorcycle laying in the grass. Some dumb-ss crashed his motorcycle into our house and ruined our night."
"Guy was alright, but the mood was not.
Busy Day At Work
"I was so tired that I couldn't stay hard, ended up calling it quits after trying for 15 minutes."
"people tend to look at this like something bad."
"it happened to me too, fortunately no one made fun of me but i had a friend who was super embarrassed about it and i told him it's normal."
"usually guys tend to move a lot more than girls during sex ( in my experience ), and it's only normal that i'm tired."
"i had a gf who complained to me that i didn't want to have more than 2 lays at a time and i told her '' well if you move a little we can do it '', she was super offended but actually start moving."
Move Fast Or Finish Up
"She told me her kids are suppose to be there in 15min"
Starting To Come To Your Senses
"I was just super drunk. Woke up on a nearby friend's ground floor balcony. His roommate was pretty shocked and weirded out when I knocked on the balcony door in the morning asking to charge my phone. Man, your early 20s are a weird time."
A Blood Red FlagGiphy
"Not exactly mid intercourse, but this guy (one night stand) and I were making out, taking each other's clothes off etc, when I asked if he had a condom."
"Him: Oh don't worry. We don't need that."
"Me: Yeah we do..."
"Him: What for? It's not like they even work. It's just a scam by big condom companies."
"Me : (After a moment of silence) Are you dumb???"
"Him : Come on! You women just need to learn to take more risks. You'd have a lot more fun if you did. Hahaha!!"
"Me : Get the f out right f-ing now."
"She said, "Jason, just take the condom off"
"My name is not Jason. Not even close."
Okay, Now, See? That's A Good Reason.
"One time I was going at it and she suddenly seemed to be in pain."
"I stopped and ended up calling an ambulance."
"Her appendix had exploded, mid sex."
A Lot Of Farm ReferencesGiphy
"So I was 19 and in my first relationship, me and my first girlfriend were at it and she enjoyed moaning loudly and talking dirty. This was far from the first time we had been intimate, this was about 6 months into our 14 month relationship. I grew up in a rural place (on a farm in my teens, funnily enough) and she grew up in a big city near the capital."
"She kept saying stuff like "farmer boy." Initially I laughed like hell at the latter comment because it was pretty funny, if a little odd and we carried on but then she began to make animal noises and it just got too weird for me."
"Enough was enough, I got dressed and went out to grab a coffee to kinda' forget out it. She apologized profusely when I got back an hour later and realised she went too far. All was good."
Well, that was a wild ride. Thank, Reddit!

Being horny can lead to some questionable decision-making.
Something happens to the brain when blood is flowing to other regions of the body.
They should discuss this in health class.
It's perfectly normal, but we have to learn how to deal.
Redditor Sir_Baconstrips wanted to see who was willing to discuss actions made while randy, so they asked:
"What's the biggest mistake you've made because you were horny?"
I can't tell you mine, because my mom might read this. But Reddit was more than happy to share.
History HelpHide Reaction GIF by florGiphy
"I browsed porn and then I asked my mom how to delete the history."
What was that?
"Probably my most embarrassing moment. Was on my work computer (family business so nothing locked) and it was a super slow day and I was alone. Anyways was doing a classic 3 min facebook check and scrolled down for a second and saw the news post about Adriana Chechik injuring her back in a foam pool. Figured top comments on that would be golden. Read one funny one that said 'her and her scene with [performer I can’t remember] is still goat.'"
"Never heard of said performer so I got curious and google her. Of course photos never do justice, had to see the performance ya know? So I clicked a random video, quick glance and thought 'meh' and was about to close the tab before I noticed my mouse twitch on the screen… What was that? No.. that wasn’t mouse error, that was someone… then within seconds I realized the accountant who taps in remotely to finish work came in at that exact moment that I had a browser open for less than 60 sec."
"The worst wart was I could have sworn I had all those remote services off, but she tried to tap in for over an hour and must of did something to wake splashtop (probably had it on some type of standby mode). She even called earlier but I saw a random number and was speaking with a client and ignored it."
"Anyways, decision time, do I call her and play it off as nothing or apologize? Naturally as a fearful 28 year old I play off as nothing. I call, no answer… then a few minutes later i get the call back and her words after exchanging 'hellos … are you finished with whatever you were doing…' still burns me."
"Let my (ex) boyfriend dry-hump me for an hour on a bench outside after summer school."
"The bad news: this bench behind our school was also beside a swimming pool. Where parents were taking their children for swim lessons. Eventually a staff member came out and yelled at us for being inappropriate."
"I still have shame flashbacks today, over 10 years later."
"I had a one night stand with a guy who was, in retrospect, seriously self-conscious about his penis size and kept going on about how if it was on the small size it was just because he has to have sex with it a few times and it would gradually get bigger until it was it’s 'true' size. I really didn’t care."
"But then to make himself feel better he turned it around and started talking about how big and wide my vagina was but kept reassuring me that it was ok because he liked the challenge. I wish I had snapped my legs shut and given him the boot right then and there."

"Lost my entire tax refund and got my phone stolen at a strip club in San Diego."

The RewardHappy We Did It GIF by StoryfulGiphy
"Hooked up with a girl at a party. Just kind of bored, drunk, and horny. Having to go to the doctor for a case of pubic lice was my reward for poor self-control."
"I got my first serious gf in high school. She was two grades below me. So when I finished third year and moved 500 km south we was still a couple. I was so in love (and most of all horny) I commuted every. Single. Weekend. And I was poor. So I took the bus to the nearest station after school. Waited for the long distance bus for 4-5 hours."
"Went to a larger city to hitchhike my way there. I was there Friday night or Saturday morning. Locked ourselves in her bedroom and went at it until Sunday morning. I made my way down to school again and went to class straight from the bus Monday morning. This went on for almost a year…"
I'm OutChris Pratt Running GIF by Parks and RecreationGiphy
"Was trying to get with a girl in college. We were texting and I asked her what she was up to, she said she was training for a marathon and going to the gym and asked if I wanted to come."
"I ended up running 9 miles before I tagged out. So now I know how far I'd go to have sex it's up to 9 miles."
Lord the things people will do when slightly turned on.
Why in this day and age are people still taking nudie pics without triple-checking the recipient?
Why take the gamble?
And half of the time we hit send, mistakes get made.
One minute you're feeling sexy, the next minute grandpa is having a stroke.
Redditor Im_A_Freakin_Joke wanted to hear about the times people have sent photos to the family that left everyone SHOOK, so they asked:
"Redditors who accidental sent a family member a nude, what was the aftermath?"
I have done many things, but I never allow a snapshot.
GrossVacuuming Clean Up GIF by MashedGiphy
"'You should clean your room before you take that.'"
"I meant to send it to someone on WhatsApp that I was dating at the time and didn’t realize I accidentally sent it to my brother, their names were next to each other in my chat list and I chose the wrong one. I frantically called my sister in law and told her what happened and begged her to go into his phone and delete the message with the photo."
"This is before WhatsApp added the functionality to delete your own messages. She was so sweet and understanding and deleted the message. I was so embarrassed. To this day she has kept my secret, this happened five years ago."
"For context, my mom had some life-threatening medical issues when I was a kid, so there were a few month+ long periods where we rarely saw her. One night, I got a text from her that says 'send me a pic of u in bed."
"I thought she wanted a picture of me and my dog snuggling, as he slept with me and was the cutest sleeper. I usually sent her one every few days, even when she was home. It also doubled as her way to make sure I was following my bedtime."
"I was taking the picture, and I get a follow-up 'ignore that' text. At the same time, my dad opens my door so hard the hinges break. He says 'you get a text from mama?' I say yeah, and he says, 'it wasn't meant for you.' And leaves. I felt weird about it for days, even though it was years before I figured it out."
Leave it there...
"I happened to live across the street at the time and a dirty message meant for my now wife was sent to my mother! Luckily for me my mom is notorious for ignoring her phone so I sprinted across the street and said 'hey where is your phone' she told me it was on her desk so I calmly walked over unlocked it and deleted the message. In response to the look of confusion I told her 'deleted a message that was meant for now wife...' And left it at that."
AHHHH!!!! NO!Awkward Episode 1 GIF by HeelsGiphy
"One time my dad accidentally texted me 'sex if the Patriots win' and I still don’t believe I have recovered."
Mom and dad have their own lives.
DisconnectGIF by NETFLIXGiphy
"I didn't accidentally send a nude, but my phone did auto upload ALL my pictures when I connected it to my mom's computer. I'm no longer allowed to connect hardware to my mom's computer."
"I gave my sister my old Iphone (I’m 25, she’s 22). She didn’t realize that her photos were uploading to my cloud and when I went to send a photo to a coworker, at work mind you, I see her pasty a**. I immediately text her and was like STOP TAKING PHOTOS. She called me and asked if I was okay and I told her what was happening. She responded with 'My a** look good though,' and I died laughing. Love my sis, but Christ."
"I didn’t sent a nude. I was in the shower, about age 15, and I heard the phone ring. My best friend had a habit of calling while I was showering. So, I bolted out naked as the day I was born to grab the phone before she hung up. I didn’t realize pretty much my entire dad’s side of the family was visiting my terminally ill mother."
"They saw it all. My aunt jokingly said, 'Well, dang, I didn’t know there was gonna be a show.' And someone said, 'we were just joking when we said you’d grow up to be a stripper.' I had to do a walk of shame back to the bathroom as well."
"It was laughed off and it hasn’t been brought up since."
Let me see...
"Sent a pic of my boobs to my mom. Managed to convince her I was trying to take a pic of what I thought was a lump but ended up dropping my phone and sent it while fumbling. Which has happened before. But then she made me show her where I thought the lump was so that was very awkward."

"I once sent a pic to a GF in college when we were home for break… only I searched her contact by last name and accidentally sent it to her mom!"
"Thankfully it was late and she was able to sneak into her parents’ room and delete it before they saw."
What have we learned?
At the very least, triple-check who you are sending it to one whichever app you use for that sort of thing.
There is so much to learn in the world, it's impossible for one person to know absolutely everything there is to know.
But there are certain things, like common phrases and idioms, that everyone seems to use that might be a little embarrassing to not understand until later in life.
Redditor Curious-2577 asked:
"What's something you learned 'embarrassingly late' in life?"
"My sister was in her fifties when she found out the meaning of, 'You have an addictive personality.'"
"She thought after all these years of therapy that it meant that people were addicted to her personality."
"We laughed hysterically when we talked about this (in a very sad way)."
"I thought that horses had toes until I was 22. I thought the hoof was a 'horseshoe' and the toes were tucked inside."
"How did I learn how wrong I was, you ask?"
"I was walking past a cavalry museum and saw a horse statue and loudly remarked, 'It must hurt so bad when they fold a horse’s toes to put them into the shoe!'"
"Dozens of horse enthusiasts turned and looked at me with wild bewilderment in their eyes."
"The saying is, in fact, 'Nip it in the bud' and not 'Nip it in the butt.'"
"A few months ago, two of my colleagues both handed in their notice at around the same time."
"I kept reading/hearing the sentence, 'They’re both moving on to pastures new’ being thrown about the office in the weeks leading up to them leaving, and I hadn’t heard this phrase before and thought that was the name of the rival company that they were going to, like, 'Pastures New.'"
"I thought it was weird that nobody was talking about how they were both leaving for the same company."
"I was in the car with one of the two people who were leaving and said, 'So where is it that you and X are going to be working? Is it...’"
"And just before I could embarrass myself and say ‘Pastures New,' they interrupted me and said they’re not going to the same place and asked me where I had heard that."
"I think at that moment, I realized I was stupid and didn’t mention it again."
"I think I was in college when I realized that Mario and Luigi are plumbers. I thought they just went and up down these tubes just because that was the theme of the game."
"That Bonsai are not a species of tree, but a way to grow them. Any tree can be a bonsai."
Houston, We Have a Problem
"Houston is not the name of the guy astronauts talk to."
"I learned that pork and beans are not called 'cowboy beans.' I was 18 and asked a grocery store clerk to help me find the 'cowboy beans.'"
"We were looking everywhere and I was getting frustrated because I know that every store carries these beans. After a while, I picked up a pork and beans can with a picture and said, 'See, they look just like this!'"
"He said, 'You mean pork and beans?'"
"Then I realized that my mom called them that so that I would eat them."
"The look of disappointment from that grocery store clerk haunts me to this day."
"Let me tell you about how I thought you were awarded a 'Pullet Surprise.'"
Rum and Coke
"Not too late in life, but I thought my parents were making 'Roman Cokes' until I went to college."
"Which, I think is a much better name for the drink (Rum and Coke) anyway."
Oh No, Not Acoma!
"That a coma was 'A' coma. Until I was probably 19 or so, I thought it was 'acoma.'"
"I thought you fell into acoma."
It Must Have Been a One-Way Trip
"My parents were divorced the whole time and my mom was not, in fact, taking a vacation, lmao (laughing my a** off)."
"I live near the Hospital for Joint Diseases… when I was a kid, I thought was a special hospital for people who had two or more different diseases at the same time."
"Moving cross-country, driving east to west, and crossing from Idaho to Oregon, I noticed huge fields with signs for the Ore-Ida Potato company."
"So I was in my early 20s when I figured out Ore-Ida wasn’t just a brand name but was because their potatoes came from Oregon and Idaho."
"When I was really young, my sister told me she threw her guts up. So I was really afraid of vomiting my entire insides up for years."
Some of these really had us laughing as we realized the revelations some of these Redditors were having.
But when we're really honest with ourselves, we probably didn't figure out some of these until later, too.
While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.
With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.
Redditor ApprehensiveShock655 asked:
"What's the worst part of having a child?"
Fear of Not Doing Enough
"The constant anxiety that you’re doing enough to shape them to make good choices, a good life, be a good person and for them to have the life they deserve."
Like the Energizer Bunny
"It's incessant. It never stops. You never get a day off."
"Going from having two days per week to relax and do whatever to literally never having a moment free from responsibility."
No Break In Sight
"I’ve always wanted kids and still do, but this is the only thing that has come close to giving me pause."
"Both my siblings have young kids and I cannot get over how CONSTANT it is."
"From the second the kids wake up to when they finally shut their eyes, it’s non-stop. Then they get maybe an hour or two to themselves, which is mostly spent tidying up, etc., before the nighttime stuff starts with the baby crying, the toddler coming into bed, nightmares, etc."
"It requires years of not getting a full night's rest. You can never just go out whenever you want. No sleeping in, even on weekends because someone has to be up with them at 6 AM."
"Raising human children is an insane task."
Mom's Body After Baby and Dad Bods
"The weight gain is the worst! During the pregnancy, I gained 35 pounds. My belly has stretch marks. My boobs are all saggy."
"And it’s not even fair because my wife only gained like 15."
The Meal Planning
"Coming up with three meals to eat per day EVERY DAY stresses me out so bad."
"This sounds like such a small thing, but it really wears on you over time. You can’t just make something for yourself or something you and your spouse feel like eating: You have to constantly be thinking about if the kid is hungry and what they might be willing to eat."
Keeping Them Safe
"When people ask me this I say, 'do you know those video games where you have to escort a character to a destination without them being attacked?' That's parenting. Those missions are a pain in the a**."
Seriously, Keep Them Safe
"Having to deal with their total lack of self-preservation. They are creative and come up with all kinds of ways to try and kill themselves. Keeping ahead of the game is exhausting."
"They’re just always there. On you, behind you, in front of you, just a little speed bump impeding every task."
Letting Them Live Their Life Their Way
"Having a kid is like having a little piece of your heart running around in the world. When they're sick or get disappointed or just feel sad, it's worse than having it happen to you."
"Yet at the same time, you need to let your kids work through those things to learn to handle them. If you give into the worry and try to shield them from everything, you risk creating harmful co-dependence."
"So it's a constant struggle. But worth it!"
What Is "Sleep" Again?
"I'm only nine years in, but so far, it's been the sleep deprivation. Hands down."
And What Are These "Sick Days" You Speak Of?
"Having to take care of a sick child when you are also sick. For me that has been the most challenging part so far."
Another Full-Time Job
"It's like taking a second job that lasts 18+ years with a 24/7 schedule with no holidays or sick days."
"…And no second paycheck. It's actually like YOU are paying your second salary instead of getting one."
"The loss of freedom. I can't just... go somewhere. Even with older kids, there's so much planning and thinking and getting ready."
"I miss being able to just decide to go somewhere, and go there."
The Time Flies
"The best advice I got was from an ancient hospital security guard in an elevator. 'The days are long, the years are short, cherish them while you can.'"
"The phrase I hate is, 'You don't know it, but one day you pick your kid up for the last time.'"
There are all kinds of troubles that come from being a parent, many of which people don't necessarily think about until they already have a baby in the house.
But reassuringly, many people in the subReddit pointed out that no matter how hard some of these hurdles are to get over, it's still worth it in the end, and it goes by far too fast.
