A stash of condoms, hairless genitalia and sexy underwear: when it comes to preparing for sex, men and women aren't all that different.

In the videos above by Buzzfeed (they play one after another), men and women each describe the silly and completely common things they do before having sex — from making sure they're shaved all the right places to ensuring their apartments don't look like dumps.

Now there are ways to have better sex in general, for example, by setting the right mood, taking an intimate bath together or getting away from your chilly city.

And even if doing some of the things mentioned in the videos might make you feel more prepared, one study found that having confidence in the bedroom and overall moves were some of the things men noticed before having sex, according to Women's Health. So that laundry you've been ignoring for week? Don't sweat it.

At the end of the day, as the video suggests, there's no real way to prepare for having "good" sex. Instead, focus on making sure it's comfortable, pleasurable and fun.
