You really don't want to hear these sentences uttered in the bedroom...
#1 "Huh! That thing you just did reminded me of that time ages ago when my ex..."
Who even does that? The cardinal sin of coital passion: mentioning the ex-partner. Because obviously.
#2 "So... How would you score what we just did? Like, literally. I want a number. Or a percentage. Whichever you prefer."
No matter what answer the other person gives, it won't be good enough: there's either too much room to improve or too much to try and match next time.

#3 "You want to hear my fantasy? Okay, so it involves the girl/guy in my office..."
Obviously, everyone has fantasies. Dreaming about Brad Pitt or a random fireman sweeping you off your feet is one thing - but telling your partner quite candidly you have a crush on the guy you see on the train every morning is a little different.
#4 "How was your day then?"
Casual chat mid-sex has the potential to be a bit of a passion-killer. Call us kill-joys, but talking about the photocopier drama at work or the particularly exciting salad you had at lunchtime just isn't all that, um, sexy.
#5 "Um... Are you nearly there yet? It's just I want to watch EastEnders/wash my hair/answer some emails..."
You might as well just say: hurry up, this is really not holding my interest.

#6 "Your sex face is weird tonight."
There is no reply to this that doesn't involve crushing embarrassment and a smidge of rage.
#7 "You turned the cooker off, right? I think I can smell burning..."
Because no matter how hot things are in the bedroom, flames spouting from electrical appliances are never cool.

#8 "Sorry, I just got a notification that my clan is ready for battle. I'll just be a minute."
Keep phones out of the bedroom, people. Responding to that Candy Crush Saga request the moment you receive it is tantamount to saying: hang on, you're less important than animated sweets.
#9 "Do you think we should get new curtains?"
Nothing says lost-in-the-moment-ecstacy like noticing you need new blinds, or that there's a hole in your eiderdown. 'Curtain' and 'eiderdown' - arguably the two sexiest words in the English language.
