Do You Worry About How You Look During Sex?

We all may have our body image issues from time to time. We might fret when a pair of jeans feels tighter than before or lament the beginning of bathing suit season. But what about while you're naked having sex — do you worry about what you look like?

Megan Fox, who seems very comfortable talking about sex, said recently that she's too self-conscious to make a sex tape because of such concerns. "One shot of me not looking good," she said, "and I would not be able to have sex ever again, because I would always just see myself looking like a hippo having sex." And I remember that classic Friends episode where Rachel and Ross cringe through a viewing of their accidental sex tape only to be relieved that they actually look pretty good during the act.

Do you ever think about your appearance while you're getting down, or are your looks the last thing on your mind?

@John J hahahaha that's gold! I'm usually too busy watching them to worry about it... I've seen myself on camera and it wasn't exactly arousing lol, but I don't give myself a lot of thought while in the moment... As long as he's enjoying himself I feel like I look good enough :)

Funny, I have my own insecurities, but that's the last thing on my mind in a sexy situation. I just think that if a cute guy I like wants to be naked in bed with me, then he must think I'm attractive - that's enough for me hehe. Plus, I look at the other person, not me :P.

i know i'm ugly when i'm doing it but i've let it go as i've gotten older. life is ironic like that.... you might just be looking your "worst" when you're "supposed" to be all hot and sexy, which also proves that no matter how bad you look, guys are just that happy to be having sex.

I made a sex tape before and thought I looked stupid lol. It still doesn't really affect me in the bedroom though because I am my own worst critic. My boyfriend thinks I look sexy during the act, so that's all that matters. Plus, it always feels too good for me to care what I look like anyway.

Wow, I used to not even be able to enjoy sex because I was such a newbie that I cared what my face looked like at certain moments. Now, I don't even think about it. Guys love whatever stupid faces you make because that means you're enjoying what they're giving you. They love that. I used to worry about it when I was younger. Now, when I'm having sex I feel like a super model no matter how many unslightly rolls I may see when I look in the mirror.

Every once in a while, but I usually don't because for me, as soon as I go there, it's totally derailed.

I've got my body issues, but I try to leave them out of the bedroom. And since I don't plan on making a sex tape, I don't have an audience to worry about.
