Sex, Pleasure & Intimacy Coach Sarah Rose Bright explained why saying the wrong name during sex is the worst thing you can do to a female partner.

She said: "When you are intimate with someone you are at your most vulnerable and hearing your partner call somebody else’s name, especially an ex can feel like an insult or it can seem that your partner’s attention is elsewhere."

Similarly, Somatic Sex Educator Becky Price , revealed why men really hate to be asked about their performance during sex.

She explained:"Phrases like ‘Are you done yet?’ indicates that your partner is bored and just wants you to hurry up, placing pressure on you to have an ejaculatory orgasm as soon as possible. ‘Is that it?' indicates disappointment that what you did wasn’t good enough or for long enough."
