Last week, we talked about the grossness of guys who leave their socks on during sex.

A commenter, Lyon, directed us to a clip from the British TV show, Coupling, that adresses this very issue. They even coined a term for it.

The Sock Gap, proper noun:

That period of time after you take your shoes off and before you take your pants off, during which you should take your socks off.

“Otherwise, you’re just a naked man with socks.”

(See clip below — go to about 50 seconds in.)

Well, there you have it, boys. Mind the (sock) gap.

(“Do the squelchy” means sex, obviously, though we wouldn’t recommend this term for American audiences….)
