Sex. We all have it. And after a few years of doing it, trends emerge.

So here we present to you: 13 sexual experiences most humans will participate in at some point in their 20s.

Disclaimer: you may be lucky enough to have dodged a few of these, so don’t worry if you can’t tick them all off the list. They could be something to aim for - or if you've done them all before, that's cool too.

  1. 1 Sex with an ex

    Most of us will, at some point, take a trip down sexy memory lane – just for old times’ sake and all that. Plus, they’re easy and you're kinda lazy.

    However, it is NAHT a good idea, and can dredge up all those old feelings and other heart-related nonsense.

  2. 2 Booty-call sex

    It’s 2am, you haven’t pulled, you’ve had a few sherries and you want to get freaky. So what do you do?

    You dial up your sometime friend with benefits. Normally they don’t answer (because they are asleep) and you go shove your face in a kebab. But sometimes they do, and off you go to persue your pound of flesh.

  3. 3 Drunk sex

    You feel like the sexiest person alive - in that moment, you ARE Dita Von Teese.

    In reality, you're Fergie in her toe sucking days* at best. It’s all very messy and clumsy and you got so into it that you wake up feeling not only like your head is imploding from the hangover but just a teensy bit embarrassed too.

    If drunk sex was filmed and shown to you the next day it’s likely you would be on the Diet Cokes indefinitely.

    * For any younger readers, that’s the royal and not Fergie-wet-patch-my-London-bridge-is-falling-down-Black-Eyed-Pea.

    And after the drunk sex comes the...

  4. 4 Hungover sex

    This is normally in order to readjust the balance and prove there’s more to you than the wild tequila-fueled animal of the night before. Good but nauseous at times. Follow with an Alka-Seltzer.

  5. 5 Rebound sex

    The first time you sleep with someone new after a break up can feel liberating, yes.

    But it also weirdly feels like you're cheating on your ex. It’s also a struggle not to drop back into the old routine you had with your ex and wonder why this new person isn’t knowing what to do next.

    It’s a bit awkward, you’re a bit nervous – kind of like 1/10 of losing your virginity.

  6. 6 Post-argument sex

    Post-argument sex can be a real enema for the soul. It’s hot and everybody knows it. Makes arguments worth it.

  7. 7 Outdoors sex

    Telly and Hollywood reckon this is hot. But that’s probably because most of that isn’t set in rural Berkshire just around the corner from a primary school.

    Impractical unless on holiday, and even then it’s probably uncomfortable and you’re going to get sand in your bits.

  8. 8 Exorcist sex

    So basically you're going at it and everything's tickety-boo, same old same old and then just when they least expect it you basically go all Linda Blair in the exorcist and let out an animalistic roar just to throw them off. Funny in hindsight, probably not at the time.

  9. 9 Silent sex

    This is basically the 20s version of ‘having sex when your parents are downstairs’ – you don’t want your housemates to hear so you basically make like sexy mime artists.

  10. 10 TV sex
    GIF

    Often to avoid silent sex one will drown out the naked noise with the TV. However, sometimes this can backfire when the sexing is so very dull that you start actually watching the telly instead.

  11. 11 Shower sex
    GIF

    Another one that looks pleasingly erotic when depicted by Hollywood, but is actually disappointing and potentially fatal IRL.

    In reality you spend the whole experience convinced one of you is going to slip and crack their head open while getting soap in your eyes.

    And don’t even get us started with baths – WHY DO WE ALWAYS GET SHOVED UP THE TAPS END?

  12. 12 Fat sex
    GIF

    Fat sex is when you’ve eaten too much food and feel like you should have sex but you’re heart isn’t really in it. This usually follows a ‘romantic meal out’.

  13. 13 Revenge sex
    GIF

    The art of having sex with someone to make someone else jealous. If you are still unsure, just watch a few re runs of Footballers' Wives and you'll get the gist.

  14. 14 No sex

    Has it really been that long? Yeah, yeah it has.
