Ever wonder what it would be like to have mind-reading capabilities during sex? To actually know what the hell our partners are thinking before, during, and after the deed? You might, for example, wonder if that cup of coffee or nightcap is actually an invitation to sex or if they’re still feeling out the situation. You might also wonder what they’re thinking about your body, or if they are anywhere near close to coming, or if you are. And then, of course, there’s the whole “should I spend the night after sex?” conundrum that comes with those first few hookups. (I honestly never considered how much faking-and-guessing-and-doubting we do when we first start sleeping with someone until now that I'm thinking about what it would be like to have the ability to cut through all of that.)
At any rate, if folks were just honest about sex, it might sound a lot like this Buzzfeed video of a couple's inner monologue during a first boom-boom sesh. All of this definitely applies more to a first-time rendezvous rather than the kind of sex you might have 5 years into a relationship (or the type of sex you’d have during your toddler’s nap time which, let’s face it, mostly revolves around thinking “must stay quiet so the kid doesn’t wake up before everyone gets to have an orgasm") but actually, a lot of it is pretty universally true of hookups no matter how long into a relationship they take place (don't act like you don't still angle for some flattering light even if you're boning someone for the 5,000th time).
