Want to say "no" to ex sex? Try these three methods of avoidance.

Getting over an ex can be a struggle, no question there. Resisting the temptation to reconnect one, twice or multiple times for sex post-breakup is no easy feat.

Along with Astroglide, we recently hosted a reader contest to find out: what's the best way to avoid ex sex? We received nearly 100 responses offering advice that ranged from humorous ("Wear giant granny panties every day until you meet someone new!") to motivational ("Respect yourself enough to not go back to the past.").
