It is a widely held opinion that sex needs to be memorable - not just the foreplay or the main course, the whole thing should be anything but routine. For that to happen, there are more than a few things that both the partners can do. Hey, if both the people involved make it a priority to please the other, I believe that the world will be a more happy and satiated place. And if you are wondering how to go about that, here are a few things you can keep in mind.
But there are also a few things you should just not say during sex. Your mouth shall not utter these forbidden words lest you not only ruin the moment, but also make sure the sex is only memorable in the worst possible way - where you become an anecdote to be shared with friends over cocktails. Here are a few you must be wary of.
“Let’s just get it over with”
If it wasn’t okay for Miranda Hobbes to say it in SATC, you should get the drift. What is this? The annual report due by the deadline? Picking up the dry cleaning? Getting your bank details changed? Hell no. It is sex, not a chore or an errand. Not only do you look like you are rushing to the final destination but also ruining the other person’s fun. Not cool.
“Are you there yet?”
Whoa, the pressure. Running a marathon? No? Then let’s give the person their time to go to that happy place. Say these words and the chances are, they will just utter the next unspeakable words.

“I’ll just do it myself”
Ouch. Really, there should be some kind of ‘Danger Level: XXX’ mark on this one. The shade, the burn might take a while to be dealt with.
“I love you”
Not that any sensible person will believe this when said during an orgasm, but the truth is that there are some places that the three beautiful words are just not to be uttered. Unless this is a person you are in a long term relationship with. Then just go to town.
“My ex used to…”
Say hello to “Relationship Status: Single” on Facebook all over again. Or you could whisper your ex’s name and just kill the other person.
