Comma Sense: Restrictive

Restrictive, dependent clauses: When a dependent clause is vital to the sentence’s meaning, there’s no need to set it off with a comma.

Orgasm is a physical response that anyone can achieve.
She loved getting her pussy licked from side to side.

Now mark the unnecessary commas:

When faced with two options, she chose the dildo, that had broken her heart.

Comma Sense: Nonrestrictive

Nonrestrictive, dependent clauses: When a dependent clause adds information to a sentence without changing its meaning, set it off with a comma.

She is the madame of the house, which offers both male and female prostitutes.

Now you try:

Comma Sense: Complex Is Sexy

Sentences with complex predicates: When both parts of a predicate modify the same subject, there’s no need to separate them with a comma.

Now mark the unnecessary commas:

Comma Sense: But She Closed Her Legs

Compound Sentences: Use a comma to separate two independent clauses.

He lowered himself to her vulva, but she closed her legs.

Now you try:

Comma Sense: Beneath Me Slithered . . .

Introductory phrases that directly precede a verb: Omit the introductory phrase’s comma when it is followed directly by a verb.

Grinding on my boyfriend’s lap was my best friend.

Now mark the unnecessary commas:

Out of the bedroom, stepped three beautiful, naked women.
Beneath me, slithered my girlfriend, her new boyfriend, and a man none of us had met.

Comma Sense: Before Getting Off . . .

Introductory phrases: Set apart most introductory phrases with a comma.

Before getting off, can you please share that vibrator with the rest of us?

Now you try:

As we discussed let’s start with the handcuffs and ankle restraints.
