However, when you finally make your way to the bedroom for some grown folks fun time, you discover all that piping hot chemistry you had outside the bedroom seems to have left the building. Such a bummer. The question is, was that a one-off? How do you know if you have sexual chemistry? Shouldn't you know right away if it’s just not there? I mean, to be fair, the first time is always a little bit awkward, so I guess it makes sense to hope that the next time would be better. But what if round two is still a bust? At this point, the question becomes — if you really like everything else about this person — exactly how many times do you hook up with them before you just declare it a sexual chemistry fail and move on?
