And so is the assumption that goes along with their excitement over your wetness: that when someone is extremely wet or not , they must be ridiculously turned on or not. First, let's make it clear that all bodies are different, so some people might not get as wet as others. And that's totally okay. Not getting super wet before sex doesn't necessarily mean that you're not into it or that you don't find your sex buddy smokin' hot.
