Some people put in a lot of effort to set the mood for their hookups. They may prepare by lighting candles, dimming the lights, or making a sexual playlist to set the mood. Others, on the other hand, can get it on behind a dumpster and couldn’t care less about the ambiance of the surroundings. If you do care about your home decor and don’t want to kill the vibe of your hookups, here are some items to avoid having on display in your bedroom.
No Family Photos.
No one wants to look over and see a picture of grandma, your parents, or your kids during sex. Keep family photos out of the bedroom. Bedrooms are for artwork or photos of yourself, but certainly not your loved ones.
No Dirty Dishes, Trash, Dirty Clothes or Grossness
Always clean up before you have company. That’s usually ingrained in children before any family function hosted at your home. It’s a major turn-off to get in someone’s bed, and there are crumbs everywhere. Dirty dishes by the side of the bed. Trash across the floor. Avoid this nastiness, because it’s an ultimate turn-off to look over and see a roach or ants coming to join your soiree because of the filth.
Pets are cute when you first enter someone’s house. As long as they’re friendly and well behaved. It’s natural to love your pet sleeping in bed with you, but pets shouldn’t be present during a hookup. No pet smells. No pet hair. Worst of all no pets looking at you while you’re getting it on. Animals can get jealous, and you don’t want to have to worry about one attacking you or judging you while you get it on with their owner.
No Remnants of Your Previous Hookup
It’s ok to be sex-positive and hooking up with someone new every day if that’s your thing. As long as you’re safe. Just it’s a turn off to enter someone’s room, and then see the condoms or smells of someone else that’s been there before. It can be off-putting to know the guy you’re hooking up with is promiscuous, and you’re just the hookup of the day or even hour. So just remove all traces of the previous person if they were that recent. Clean up old condoms or lube spills. Spray something to clear out the smell of sex. Make each hookup feel like they’re special.
