My favorite thing about Tumblr – which is probably everyone’s favorite thing about Tumblr, really – is that the users on there aren’t afraid to get very real. Not just real in an “OMG ME,” Buzzfeed-list-post type of way (that too, though), but real in a way that makes you feel a little bit uncomfortable. Sometimes you read a post on Tumblr, and you’re like, “Excuse me, did you, at some point, crawl into my brain and see me thinking this?” Sometimes you read a text post that makes so much sense that you have to stop and wonder if that user has been stalking you. It’s what makes Tumblr so great, and it’s also an awesome way to express the things you may have been too embarrassed to talk about before. And that, of course, leads to the topic of sex, on which Tumblr users are candidly open about in the best way possible.
Sex is a private, personal thing, which is why it can be so weird and awkward to talk about with other people. There are so many embarrassing things that happen during sex that are totally fine in the moment, but are also things we never want to discuss with other people. Sometimes we don’t even want to discuss them with the person it happened with! I have good news for you, though: that thing that happened or that you felt that you never want to tell anyone? It is almost definitely happened to other people. How do I know this? Because of these Tumblr posts about sex that are so true it hurts, and that come along with thousands of “notes.” See? Relatable!
Let’s all take a few minutes to get completely honest and open about sex stuff. Or let’s allow Tumblr users to do it for us! Here are 32 times Tumblr got uncomfortably real about sex… and it was awesome:
1. When you make something perfectly innocent completely dirty:
2. When you’re not quite ready for, uh, stuff to happen.
3. If you’ve ever wondered whether someone is faking it – this picture pretty much clears things up.
4. Because we all have at least one story like this:
THAT IS SO INAPPROPRIATE I’M SORRY.
5. Why is this happening
6. When you’re trying to have sex but you can’t let anyone hear you.
7. The true answer to this question:
8. WHO DID THIS AND WHY IS IT WEIRDLY ACCURATE
9. When you have to sacrifice your pets’ well-being for your own pleasure:
10. When you finally get to a point where you forget how much sex sucked in the beginning:
11. Literally nothing about this appropriate and honestly, I came out to have a good time, and I’m feeling so attacked right now.
12. When you’re just like, “Slow it down.”
13. When the thought of hooking up distracts you way too often.

19. I mean, how do you make a comment about this?
20. Tell me you haven’t been in this situation.
21. Why do it yourself when you could have a partner?
23. When you relate to this on a very real level:
24. You basically are this water bottle:
25. A rare photo of you and bae:
26. When you guys stop hooking up just as his parents walk in the door:
27. WHY ARE THERE SO MANY BEYONCE PHOTOS HERE
But also, WHY ARE THEY SO ACCURATE?
28. When you see bae and you’re like, “yes, hi, come here.”
29. That moment you’re not actually in the mood.
30. When you feel validated that you’re doing a good job:
