Remember my post on dating mistakes to avoid? Well, there are sex blunders, too. And I'm not just talking about screaming the wrong name in bed. Though, in case you're wondering, that's a major don't.

Sex Mistake 1. Faking it
This is way more about you than it is about him. Sure, if you're so tired you can barely keep your eyes open, it won't hurt to put on a one-time show. But don't make it a habit. If you do, you're just cheating yourself. I say make him work for it. You know what they say, "Guys love a challenge."
Sex Mistake 2. Not ever initiating
Men have needs (duh), and they want to know that you desire them as badly as they desire you. No need to make it a serious discussion. In fact, subtle hints work wonders.

Sex Mistake 3. Being lazy
Although Anna gave some good tips for the lackadasical lover, the girl who just lies there may seem like she's not enjoying herself-or doesn't feel comfortable enough to let go. It's sexy when a woman "participates." Luckily, we at Smitten love telling you how!
Sex Mistake 4. Not being up for new things
It's not like you have to don whips and chains or do anything you're not comfortable with. It can be as simple as a new sex position or not saying no just because you haven't done it before. I think this is especially important when you've been with the same partner for a while. Switching it up keeps it interesting.

Sex Mistake 5. Not asking for what you want
Being assertive is hot. And you'll never believe what a turn-on it is for guys to hear that you know what makes you feel good. So go ahead and show him where your sweet spot is. Then he'll know for next time.
Bonus: Not being safe
This goes without saying, but no matter how badly you want it in the heat of the moment, make sure you're practicing safe sex. You want to look back on it with fondness, not regret.
Agree or disagree? What did I miss? Have you made any of these mistakes in bed?
