The Most Overrated And Underrated Sex Acts!

We love talking about sex. There are so many different things to discuss, and often while chatting with our friends we’ll find ourselves talking about our favourite things. It might be the hottest new sex acts we’ve heard about or the horniest places in Northern Ireland.

Either way, we like talking sex. However, there are some things you’ll hear a lot about. People will go on and on about them as though they are the best thing in the world, while others will think that they are overrated. There are also some underrated sex acts that we should do most. So here’s a list of some of the most overrated and underrated sex acts out there.

Overrated: shower sex

For many years, I wanted to try shower sex. I’d heard that it was amazing, and I’d seen it in plenty of movies that just added to the belief that it would be the best sex of my life. When I finally got the chance to try it, I was so excited. My boyfriend and I were on holiday at the time, and the hotel’s bathroom included a huge waterfall shower.

Then came the actual act of shower sex. It felt awkward, mainly because my partner simply wanted to slip straight in without lube. Here’s a hint for you: water does not make a good lube. In fact, it doesn’t even make a bad lube. It just isn’t lube! So don’t try it.

Getting the angle and position is also really frustrating. It doesn’t feel good for what it is, and tons of people will report that it is really boring and overrated as a sex act. There are so many other things that you could do instead. Why not soap your partner up in the shower and then move to the bedroom for some fun, rather than slipping on the soap?

Underrated: clothed sex

Passionate sex is some of the best sex you can have. However, it sometimes falls into the category of underrated sex acts. This is because of things like clothed sex. Clothed sex is amazing when you have it, but often we are so focused on getting undressed that we don’t think to keep our clothes on.

When I talk about clothed sex, I mean the kind of sex where you are so eager and desperate to get to the act itself that undressing seems like a huge delay. Instead you’ll take your cock out of your pants, lift up their skirt, and pull their panties aside so you can fuck.

It is some of the most passionate sex you can have. You need them right here and right now, clothes be damned. You don’t want to waste time getting undressed so you just fuck. It is especially good for quickies, and for that reason it is often underrated.

Overrated: oral sex

Okay, so this is likely to be the controversial one on this list, but a lot of the time I am left feeling as though oral sex is massively overrated. It can feel amazing, but one of the main reasons it feels so overrated is because it is often just part of the build up to sex itself.

It has become nothing more than a part of foreplay. Instead of dedicating our time to making our partner feel amazing with our mouth, we use it to turn them on so we get to the main act.

It can be made all the worse when your partner expects an orgasm from you. It puts you under needless pressure. It also doesn’t help when you don’t communicate what you want. It is nice on occasion, but to go through it each and every time you have sex? No thank you!

Underrated: making out

Tell me something… when is the last time you had an old school make out session? I mean a clothes on, no sex make out session. Not kissing as part of sex or even in the build up to sex. Just kissing with no sex to follow.

The chances are that it has been a while, but making out is heavily underrated. It can feel amazing and give you something incredible to think about. There are plenty of times in my life when I’ve had an amazing make out session and found myself thinking about it later, lips still tingling with the pleasure of it.

If you haven’t done it before, I’d highly recommend you try an old school make out session. Keep your clothes on and don’t think about sex. Just think about kissing your partner and exploring their mouth with your tongue. It will feel better than you ever thought it could.
