    The sex was bad

    Russell Brand could use this advice. Just keep your observations to yourself even if your ex just lay there like a dead fish every time you made out or if their idea of foreplay felt like an alien probe. Being vocal about it won’t do any good. Anyways, you won’t have to keep up with it anymore. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    “Your Mother” Blah Blah
