MUNICH - Small catastrophes of a sexual nature can best be solved with humour, most couples agree according to a German poll.

Some 85 percent of couples interviewed by the Ipsos Institute for the women's magazine Elle said laughter was the best way to get around "small embarrassments".

Among couples with a long trusting relationship 78 percent said nothing could be embarrassing when it comes to sex.

But there are exceptions to the rule. Every second person interviewed said they would not like to be surprised by their partner when masturbating.

Some 47 percent of men said they would be embarrassed if things did not work out in bed, while only 29 percent of women found this a problem.

A total of 52 percent of the respondents said underwear could be a possible issue of embarrassment, while 38 percent of couples said they would rather avoid "complicated" sexual positions.
