Whether you call it hanky-panky, boffing, or sleeping with someone there's a strong chance that you've used one of the over 1500 slang synonyms for sexual intercourse at some point with your partner.

Many of us find the things we do, especially in the bedroom, embarrassing at times. We're here to tell you that you're not alone, it's time we quit judging our awkward moments and embrace them instead. Here are the top 10 things women need to stop being embarrassed about. Because communicating your needs and becoming more comfortable with your body and your desires is critical to self-confidence and having more enjoyable sex.

2. We're too self-conscious to bare it all

    Being confident when you're naked is not as easy as just taking off your clothes. But nudity, whether you're alone or with a partner, is absolutely nothing to feel ashamed of. Build your naked confidence by first focusing on the body parts you love – whether it's your eyes or your thighs. When you look in the mirror, say something positive about your favorite features. Second, stop complaining about your body to your friends, your mom, and especially your partner. Lastly, give yourself mandatory "naked time" daily. Put on your makeup, shop for new shoes online or watch your favorite sitcom in the buff.

3. We're mortified when someone spies our sex toys

    So you forgot to put your favorite toy away, and your mother-in-law spotted it on the nightstand. Remember that your mother-in-law isn't a virgin, and probably has some wild stories to tell about her sexual escapades in and out of the bedroom.

5. We think there's a problem with our libido

7. Sometimes our "Big O" is a "Big NO"

8. We make funny noises

9. We like to watch porn, a lot
