“Bloopers are not mistakes to worry about, they are memories to cherish.—Anithu

bedroom bloopers

From falling off the bed to passing gas or saying something unexpectedly silly, plenty of bedroom bloopers can happen when you and your spouse are engaging in sexual intimacy. 

The Oxford English Dictionary defines a blooper as an embarrassing error. While a bedroom blooper might be more funny than embarrassing, it still has the potential to derail your sexual experience. 

Something can happen that is so embarrassing or awkward that you find yourselves disconnected. It all depends on how you react. When you know how to respond well, bedroom bloopers can foster connection and deepen your intimacy. 

The ONE Family has no shortage of bedroom blooper examples. It’s a good reminder that you and your spouse aren’t alone in having awkward moments during sexual intimacy. 

A bedroom blooper can look like one spouse accidentally sliding off the bed while the other grabs a sex wedge or pillow. Or it might be when one of you says something out of character that leaves the other in hysterical laughter. 

What are other bloopers that could come between you? Imagine your kids, parents, or a priest walking in on you having sex. How you respond can affect all 6 Pillars of Intimacy®

Some more examples you might relate to include feeling gassy during sex, struggling to work out the kinks of a new sex position, or breaking something in the bedroom—from a bottle of Überlube to a headboard. 

Additionally, couples in the ONE Family have experienced burning sensations when using certain products. That can throw a wrench into the whole endeavor. 

But the difference between being an ordinary couple and an extraordinary couple lies in how you react to your bedroom bloopers. Do you allow it to drive you apart, create tension, or lead to blaming? Or can you laugh about it, talk through it, and save it as a special memory? 

Bedroom bloopers are inevitable. Ultimately, you can live to tell the tale, overcome the embarrassment, strengthen your connection with one another, and gain a memory that keeps you laughing.

So what’s the secret to addressing bedroom bloopers? 

The most common way to recover after a bedroom blooper is to laugh together. If one of you said something in an attempt to be sexy, and it didn’t work out, don’t stress it. Laugh together and move on. 

Another way to overcome a bedroom blooper is to try again. For example, if a sex position wasn’t working out, come back to it another time. Try to find a way that works for you. 

Sometimes you might need to move to a different location or position. Other times, you may call it a night altogether or decide to act like nothing happened. 

Here’s where the Intimacy Lifestyle plays an important role. 

Knowing when you’ll have your next sexual encounter can minimize the stress or frustration caused by a bedroom blooper. It’s so much more than scheduling sex; the Intimacy Lifestyle takes the guesswork out of sexual intimacy. So the next time you have a bedroom blooper, it’s something you can brush off.

Bedroom bloopers can be a memory to cherish when you respond correctly. 

Things won’t always go as planned. The ability to laugh together, reconnect, and decide when to try again will help you create memories that last a lifetime.
