Why do the weirdest thoughts cross our minds during sex? Of course we can’t exactly control the way we think, but still. We asked 9 Nigerian women to share the most random thoughts they’ve ever had during sex.
1. Do Not Fart.
“So my then boyfriend was going down on me, and it was amazing! Next thing, i felt like i was going to fart. So all i kept thinking was “do not fart”. It was the hardest thing to do because i was trying so hard to get back into it and not let my boyfriend think he was doing rubbish, so i was moaning every second, but constantly trying not to fart.
It was so difficult, but thankfully i didn’t fart. It was all that was in my head though”. – Cy, 25.
2. My Last Tweet.
“I couldn’t stop thinking about Twitter. I tweeted something right before sex and i wanted to know if anyone had retweeted it. It sounds funny now but all wanted to do was check my phone. The sex wasn’t all that great, so that’s probably why i was so distracted.” – Whitney, 21.
3. P*ssy Power.
“So this guy was eating me out and i couldn’t stop thinking about how incredible it will be if my vagina literally just swallowed him whole. I saw it in a series one time so it’s where the idea must have come from. What’s crazy is, it actually turned me on and i came almost immediately.” – Nina, 23.
4. Need To Eat.
“I had been having sex for what seemed like 5 hours. It was endless and i had gotten so very tired. I suddenly started thinking about food, specifically food from Prime Chinese because i was seriously craving. After we finally wrapped up, he wasn’t even courteous enough to ask if i was hungry, or offered to get me something to eat.” – Ada, 20.
5. Best Friend.
“During sex, i think the most random thought i have ever had was when i started thinking about my best friend. She was dating someone who didn’t appreciate her, and i was just so worried for her. Thinking about it now, i’m not even sure how or why my mind went there.” – Kosi, 20.
6. Alto or Soprano.
“This wasn’t so random, but this was my first time sleeping with this person and it was BAD. He really thought he was doing something good because he kept asking me to call him names i wouldn’t include in this story. After a while, i started thinking of how i could fake an orgasm. I kept practicing in my head if i should orgasm in a tone that’s alto or soprano.” – TT, 26.
7. Do It The Way I Like.
“I was having sex with my boyfriend, and then i randomly started thinking about my ex boyfriend; how i preferred the way he went down on me. I actually missed it so i guided my man to do it the way my ex used to, the way i liked.” – Tiffany, 25.
“I wouldn’t say it was a random thought because i was cramping really bad. So i started calculating my cycle in my head, trying to understand why i was having period pains. I had just finished my period a week ago from the time, so it was giving me a headache. Tbh, i think the sex was just really rough hence the lower abdominal pains i was confusing for period pains.” – Ayomide 24.
9. Music, Please.
“During sex one night with my boyfriend (of 3 years), it was SO quiet. Well, not quiet quiet because you could hear all the moaning, grunting, and all the sex sounds we were making, and i honestly didn’t like the sound. It was actually turning me off because i guess i didn’t want to hear myself. I started thinking about the most random thoughts. From work, to my family, to my dad even! We had to pause s i could put on some music, particularly a sensual playlist because i just couldn’t take it anymore.” – Val, 24.
