People Reveal Their Exes Fetishes Which Totally Turned Them Off

When it comes to sex, everyone has their thing. Each person gets off to something specific, from a range of bizarre kinks and fetishes to bog-standard, plain ol' vanilla sex. Of course, no one should be judged for what gets them off in the bedroom. As long as their partner is consensual and willing to take part in their fetish safely, then it's all good. But fetishes are very personal, and when you're in a relationship with someone who is into something you're not, then things can get... awkward. People on Reddit shared the kinks their exes used to have, which did absolutely nothing for them, and it's clear how crucial sexual compatibility is in a relationship.

But he would do so unexpectedly, no warning, and hard enough that it would bruise or break skin. Oh and he would do like a shark, shaking his head back and forth hard. And in usually the most sensitive places. That's takes the fun out of it and set me on edge so much that I couldn't get off because I was always ready for the next b

Men Reveal Things Which Aren't As Attractive Or Sexy As Women Think

Let's be honest; when it comes to men and women, no one has a clue what the other sex is thinking. Both assume they have some sort of insight into the others' psyche, especially when it comes to what the other finds attractive. But the reality is, it's all a guessing game and each is as clueless as the other. It's like the blind leading the blind. Thankfully, a recent Reddit thread asking men to share the things that women think turn guys on, but aren't as attractive or sexy as women think they are has shed some much-needed light into the brains of the male population. Feel free to take that with a handful pinch of sarcasm. Women, take note because you're about to enter the holy grail of man code.

Moments People Realized They Were Turning Into Their Parents

Growing up, every kid swears they'll never be anything like their parents. All the annoying things parents do or say, all the bad dad jokes they make, and all the rules they enforce are things their kid would rather die than do themselves. You name it; if your parent does it, you'll want to do it differently. Because kids always know best, right? But somehow, the inevitable happens, and as we get older, we notice the oddly familiar patterns in our behavior. And somehow, slowly but surely, we start turning into our parents. These Redditors shared the horrifying moments they realized they were becoming their parents and some of them hit home pretty hard.

People Reveal Why They Dumped Someone Because Of Their Crazy Family

A big part of dating someone is getting to know their family. Because if you end up marrying them, they will inevitably become your family too. No one wants to take on a crazy family, especially if you already have one of your own, but what happens when your partner's family only shows their wild side once it's too late? It's hard to walk away from someone you love because of their family, but everyone has their limit. These Redditers shared their stories of breaking up with someone they loved because their family was nuts and some of them are wild!

People Reveal What Instantly Killed Their Crush On Someone

The concept of attraction is a weird one; you can't necessarily control what you're into, especially when it's not exactly... conventional. Whatever you're into, this is a safe space, and we (mostly) don't judge. You do you, boo. But attraction is like a switch; as quickly as someone can turn you on, they can do something that instantly turns you off. And once you get the ick, there's no going back. Redditers shared the things that instantly killed the crush they had on someone, and after reading these horror stories, it's pretty clear why. From seeing someone pick their nose to bumping into them at a family reunion (yikes!), there's no going back. The flame of passion has been extinguished forever.

Housekeepers Reveal Employer's Secrets They Weren't Supposed To Know

There are several perks to having a housekeeper or maid—the obvious one being that you don't have to do any of your own housework. But, like all priveledges, being able to afford a housekeeper comes at a price. Having someone in your house nearly every day means that they have access to all the private parts of your life...

People Reveal The Moments They Realized Helping Others Is So Overrated

Everyone likes to do a good deed when they can for friends, family members, and sometimes even strangers. True altruism may not exist, but no one expects a reward for doing a good deed, at least not on the surface. Sure, it feels good to help someone in need, and a little gratitude is nice here and there, but that's not really why we do it, right? But when the person you've gone out your way to help throws it back in your face or manipulates you to get what they want, it can make you lose faith and say, "F it, I'm not helping anyone again!" Like these people who went out their way to help someone and ended up getting screwed over in the process.

People Reveal Brutally Honest Reasons They Left Their Partners Because Of Sex

Sex is a kind of a big deal, especially in a relationship. A couple's sexual compatibility is just as important as their emotional and physical connection, and it's not something people should compromise on. I'm not saying you have to be into the same stuff necessarily, but if there is respect, communication, and open-mindedness, then a sexually fulfilling relationship is possible. But sometimes, even with all of that, it's not enough. If you've ever had to break up with someone because the sex was that bad (definitely speaking for a friend here), then you'll empathize with these people. Redditors shared the reasons they ended a relationship over sexual incompatibility, although it seems like 'cheating' is being used synonymously with 'incompatibility,' and I'm confused.

Professional Therapists Reveal Relationship Red Flags And Whether They're Salvageable

Anyone who is in or has been in a relationship will know that love isn't always easy. Everyone comes with baggage (although some suitcases are way bigger than others), and therapy can often help couples get through the more challenging times or specific issues they may be facing. But sometimes, even therapy isn't enough to salvage a relationship and push past specific glaring red flags. Professional relationship therapists shared on Reddit some of the giant red flags they've seen in couples who come in for sessions and whether or not the relationship can survive these issues. Some of them are genuinely eye-opening and might make you feel less alone in your relationship struggles. Or, they might spur you to book that therapy appointment you've been avoiding.

People Reveal Their 'Facepalm' Moments During Sex

Hollywood has given us some pretty unrealistic expectations of what sex should be like. In the movies, morning breath doesn't exist, girls don't have to pee after sex (I'm sorry, but why doesn't Hollywood factor in UTIs?), and the guy always has a condom in his wallet. But as anyone who has had sex knows, sex in real life can get messy, awkward, and weird. Redditors shared their 'facepalm' moments during sex, which will hopefully make you feel better about your own awkward encounters if you've ever had any. I certainly haven't.

People Reveal Weirdest Myths About Sex They Believed As Kids

I think I can probably speak for most people when I say that growing up, my sex ed was almost non-existent. I picked up everything I know now along the way, either through the garbage my friends told me or, as I got older, through some awkward trial and error experiences. I was that gullible kid who believed you could get pregnant from swimming in a pool and that my parents only had sex the same amount of times as the number of siblings I have (and even that was way too many for my liking). People on Reddit share some of the weirdest myths about sex they believed as kids, and they make me feel less alone, as that kid who believed anything and everything about the big, bad world of sex.

People Share The Almost Unbelievable Reasons Their Teachers Got Fired

Students usually remember teachers for one of two reasons: they were either excellent or terrible. The great teachers do more than teach their subject; they believe in their students, give them life skills, and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves. The inadequate teachers do just the opposite and can cause irreparable damage to the confidence and growth of a student who may be struggling. And then you have the teachers who are SO bad that they got fired. Whether it's for sleeping with a student or embezzling school money, there's always one who thinks they'll get away with it. An AskReddit thread has got people sharing the reasons their teachers were fired, and the responses are so shockingly sad, it's a wonder how they even qualified to become teachers in the first place.

Disrespectful Things Guests Did In People's Homes

Bringing guests into your home is a wonderful thing to do. Although hospitality is somewhat of a skill, it's not that hard to create an environment where your guests feel relaxed and at home. But what happens when they feel a little too comfortable? There's a fine line between feeling at home in someone else's house and being an obnoxious asshole, which is a concept that some people don't quite understand. And those people are idiots. A Reddit thread asking people to share 'the most disrespectful thing a guest ever did at your home' has revealed just how little concern some people have for other's properties, and the responses are pretty shocking!
