Well, for those who really want to know... The 'coconut challenge' is a trend where you spell out the word 'coconut' with your hips while you're on top during sex, and it's supposed to give your partner maximum pleasure.

People are also coming back to the comments on the video after finding out what the challenge actually is, and their reactions are hilarious.
