Sex Etiquette

Not following manners in bed will most likely lead to awkwardness, anger, or pain.

Tropable? Up for Grabs. Do We Have This? Needs More Examples.

Alternative Titles: Manners In Bed, Sextiquette (nah)

A few of the rules:
  • Don't talk about boring stuff during sex.
  • No teething when performing oral.
  • Don't look disgusted.
  • Don't say the wrong name.
  • Tell your partner if you have an STD, preferably before.

Also, decide whether or not No Real Life Examples, Please!. But this is most definitely Truth in Television.

    Tank Girl: a soldier tells Tank Girl while he's forcing her to her knees: "the moment I feel teeth, you feel lead."

    But the rules vary. Some people don't mind it.

    • Discussed in Friends With Benefits when Dylan and Jamie are first starting their sexual relationship. They lay down a few ground rules and explain to each other their habits, non-erogenous zones etc. Jamie sends Dylan back to wash his hands when he has a toilet break in the middle of a session at one point.

    So what's the trope? Is it people breaking the rules to show they are jerks or people discussing the rules on screen or what?

    Sounds like a general trope for the rules, broken, discussed, or otherwise introduced in the story.

    Also, I third "Bed Manners".

    • In Clerks 2, the act of "going ass-to-mouth" during sex is discussed and frowned upon.
      • In the Amanda Peet vehicle, Whipped, a character describes this very act in a Flash Back scene and how horrible the situation was.

    Before we have examples, we need an actual trope description.
