In movies and TV shows, people are constantly swiping everything off their desk to clear a path for sex. Doesn’t matter what’s on the desk–computer, coffee mugs, pencil holders, important documents–everything ends up on the floor.
It’s meant to convey a moment of passion, but it always makes me cringe. I always think, “That’s going to be annoying to clean up later.”
Think about your desk at work. Think how devastating it would be if I walked into your office, pushed all the things off your desk, and tried to have sex with you. Perhaps you’re not as particular as me, but your desk probably has some sort of organizational system, and I just ruined it. Even people with messy desks tend to have a feel for where everything is. Now everything’s on the floor.
So my question to you is: Have you ever actually done this? I think it’s a contrivance that only happens in the movies, but maybe I’m wrong.
