How to Make a Sex Tape

How to Make a Sex Tape

By Kristen Droesch for

You know how it is.

Let's be frank; outside of porn stars in a carefully choreographed scene, most of us don't look so pretty in a sex video (looking at you, Paris). Plus, it's awkward as hell. And here's the proof, broken down into 13 stages for your convenience.

1. Getting drunk enough to think it's a good idea.

2. Stumbling around the house trying to find the camera, because this is not something you want on your iPhone.

3. Stripping down and realizing that you both forgot to shave

4. Still being drunk enough not to care.

5. Trying (and failing) to get the camera in a flattering position.

6. Psyching each other up to actually get the deal done.

7. Deciding it's the perfect time to try that freaky new move you two have been hesitant to experiment with.

8. Realizing that you didn't stretch before hand.

9. Trying to make a sexy O-face instead of your usual nonsense, and looking like this instead:

10. One of you getting ahead of the game and, well…

11. Sitting down to watch it in the light of day, and being so sure that you two are as hot as porn stars.

12. Watching it, cringing in horror…

13. …and getting drunk again to erase the memory.

I sat at my desk waiting for the clock to tick just close enough to 5:00 p.m. so that I could duck out early from work. My man was waiting for me at home, and I didn't want to keep him waiting any longer than necessary. I was excited to get home, throw on some comfortable clothes, and curl up on the couch with my favorite man of the moment, Walter White. Granted, I wasn't so much physically curling up with him as I was spending my evenings peering inside his mind, but either way, I couldn't wait to find out what else was going to happen on Breaking Bad. After all, my marriage depended on it.   Read more >

I'm Glad I'm Married Because Dating In the Digital Age Is Frightening

Originally, my idea was to experiment with the social networking app Tinder for 48 hours. However, it took less than 4 hours for me to be absolutely grossed out with the state of the Tinder-verse and I had to power through to even make it to 24. At this very moment, as I'm writing this, just the thought of opening the app and seeing the little orange dot informing me of a new message makes my stomach churn the same way it did when I had the stomach flu last winter and wanted to die a horrible, horrible death on the bathroom floor.   Read more >

An Affair Strengthened My Marriage

It began as a typical Saturday night out with my closest women friends. But on that particular evening as we sat, laughed and talked in a popular New York restaurant, acquaintances were seated nearby celebrating their friend Alex's* birthday. They invited us to join their table for a toast, which turned into several. When the house music came on and everyone headed for the bar, Alex — handsome and playful — took my hand and led me to the dance floor.   Read more >
