Laughing at sex

What is it that makes sex so funny? If you mistakingly make an obscure reference to sex, everyone around you starts laughing and giggling as if they were in 8th grade. Is sex the last frontier of maturity? Here are some examples from those who were sufficiently brave enough to relieve their moments of embarrassment.

I walked into a hair salon with my husband and three kids in tow and asked loudly, "How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?" I turned around and walked back out and never went back. My husband didn't say a word... He knew better.

I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said, "I think I like playing with mens balls"

My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of candy and nuts. As we were looking at the display case, the boy behind the counter asked if we needed any help.
I replied, "No, I'm just looking at your nuts." My sister started to laugh hysterically. The boy grinned, and I turned beet-red and walked away. To this day, my sister has never let me forget.

While in line at the bank one afternoon, my toddler decided to release some pent-up energy and ran amok. I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other patrons. I told her that if she did not start behaving "right now" she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as threatening, "If you don't let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee last night!" The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange. Even the tellers stopped what they were doing. I mustered up the last of my dignity and walked out of the bank with my daughter in tow. The last thing I heard when the door closed behind me, were screams
of laughter.

This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for two days and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks.

What happens when you predict snow but don't get any? We had a female news anchor that, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked: "So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?"

Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too they were laughing so hard!

Well, I laughed at these, so I guess I didn't pass the maturity test.


  • There just has to be some non-penis embarrassing sex moments too. Anyone?

  • Laugh? I almost just fell off my bed...

    And I though it was just us Brits who liked stupid innuendo jokes!

  • I suppose we'll always laugh at sex. Sex and laughter are the two things that are still free and not yet taxed. That seems reason enough for a chuckle...
    In my book, Guy Talk, Girl Talk by Sal Marino, the stories are ripe with sex humor and are a reflection of experiences we all can relate to. Sometimes we're the hero and sometimes we're the victim. Either way, sex and laughter will always lighten the otherwise much too serious concerns of the day.
