There are some people out there who make being sexy look easy and effortless. But make no mistake: for most of us, being sexy, or at least feeling like you’re being sexy, is a serious struggle. This is because too many of us try too hard to be sexy, when true sexiness is something you’re exuding probably without even realizing it – corny, yes, but also true. Taking cues from celebrities, movies, books, magazines, and even porn can lead to a fake sexiness that doesn’t just feel awkward… it actually ends up being awkward. Trying to be sexy can easily lead to some seriously cringe-worthy moments, the kind that you push out our head until it’s 1AM on a weekday and you’re trying to sleep and your brain decides to make you feel awful about all of your life choices. But anyway.
Every person out there has a story about an embarrassing time they completely failed at being sexy. It doesn’t matter if you have the confidence of a thousand Kardashian sisters or if you’re super popular and everyone calls you gorgeous – it happens, and if you say it never has, you’re lying. The good news is that, despite feeling like you want to set yourself on fire in the moment, true sexiness is about being able to laugh these things off and keep going. Not only do moments like these make real life intimacy more real and more like a bonding experience, they also lead to funny stories to share with friends, or maybe the Internet, later on. Worth it? Pretty much. If you need a laugh, read these stories from this Ask Reddit thread on women who reveal the most embarrassing times they failed at being sexy. See? It’s not just
