It’s already been established that sometimes sex is kind of gross, but now do we really want you to worry about what your orgasm face is supposed to look like, too?
A new study says that guys’ eyes focus on our faces, not our bodies, in bed, because that’s the easiest way for them to tell if you’re having an orgasm. Fine. But now some people are complaining about what an individual’s orgasm face is supposed to look like, and that doesn’t make too much sense to us.
Apparently if you look too content or calm while you’re having an O, it’s an unsatisfactory orgasm face. But if you contort yourself too much and turn red or look like you’re in pain, that’s not a good orgasm face either. These people are all missing the point.
Some experts in the study, right after saying how hideous a “real” orgasm face is (and that they’d be offended if someone looked too pretty during an orgasm), went on to encourage everyone to keep their eyes open and locked with their partners’ during sex. How exactly are we supposed to do that with a straight face or without a complex now that you’ve told us we either look gross or fake, depending on how we emote on our orgasm face?
This is all aside from the fact that sex is more about feeling than seeing, anyway. Have you ever had an earth shattering orgasm and then be like, “Hey, I looked awesome just now?” No?
Obviously, no one is going to have a Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie orgasm face from the movies. (Chances are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie don’t even really have Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie orgasm faces. That’s why they’re paid so much money to pretend that they do.) But dude, if it makes you feel better to look and feel cute while you’re getting off, do it. If it makes you feel better to let it all out, do it. It’s really hard to enjoy an orgasm when you’re too busy freaking out over what your orgasm face is supposed to look like. And chances are if your normal face is as gorgeous as we bet it is, your orgasm face looks fine.
