Sex can be passionate, tender, loving and exciting. But can sex be funny? The answer is a definite "yes." Laughing with the one you love makes the whole experience better, memorable and multidimensional. Plus laughter is, you know, the best medicine, and it gets all those endorphins firing and turns up the amount of serotonin in your system, both of which are known to boost mood. And just think what that will do for the activity at hand.

So share these funny takes on sex from some of the best comics of all time with the one you're with for a rollicking good time.
