Talking about the bedroom in Portuguese

Dobrar Fold
Dormir Sleep
Acordar Wake up

In Portuguese we have an expression related to the bedroom in Portuguese that can be used with two meanings. When we say ir para a cama it can mean that you are literally going to bed to rest and sleep or that you are going to have sex. So, if you say that you are going to bed to a Brazilian and this person laughs at you, now you know why hahahaha…
