Too real.

Sometimes your business in the bedroom can get a little too real. It’s why we have safe words and discussions about getting busy in the first place. But what to do about Oscar-worthy role-playing performances?

Redditor roleplaygonebad has been a member on the site for just a few hours. She clearly just made her account in order to ask this question on r/relationships. It’s that important. Having been together for six years, she wanted to spice up her sex life. What she got from her 33-year-old husband was a bunch of dad jokes clothed in smut shop costumes.

“The actual sex was good but he kept speaking into his fake radio calling for backup, when I was on top he would shout OFFICER DOWN OFFICER DOWN,” roleplaygonebad laments after presenting him with a police outfit and becoming subject to a raid of her room.

Rather than be helpful, Reddit thought it was fucking hilarious.

One person could relate all too well to the struggle.

As of this writing, the text of the original post that has been removed by the thread still remains. One person did offer roleplaygonebad some solid advice. Why doesn’t she just talk to the dude? Maybe role play being assertive, be forthright with her concerns, and tackle this issue with the enthusiasm she has for keeping things hot, fresh, and sexy?

Or maybe just fight fire with fire, put on that cheerleader uniform, and start cartwheeling. Hope you know some good cheers.
