People Reveal Surprising Things After Having Sex For First Time

Losing your virginity is a big deal. Everyone imagines their first time having sex being a magical experience with someone they love. Unfortunately, Hollywood has painted an unrealistic picture of what it looks like to lose your virginity. For most people, their reality is quite different and consists of awkwardly fumbling for a condom, struggling to put it on, and when they finally manage, the whole thing is over within a matter of minutes (if that). People on Reddit revealed all the dirty, awkward, and surprising things that they discovered after the first time they had sex. These sound like more realistic versions of what losing your virginity is like—speaking for a friend, of course.

People Reveal Weirdest 'Sleepovers' They Ever Had

When you think of sleepovers, you imagine girls sitting up all night, painting each other's nails, talking about boys, watching romcoms, and eating pizza. Or, at least, that's what my sleepovers looked like. I can't speak for guys, but from what I've heard, they're pretty similar. Just swap painting nails for playing video games, talking about girls instead of boys, and watching horror movies instead of romcoms, and you've got the idea. But these sleepover stories are a far cry from the idyllic childhood pictures I've just painted and, instead, are creepy and weird. Check them out and share your weirdest sleepover stories in the comments section!

Parents Who Taught Kids Life Lessons, Which Backfired Badly

Every parent tries their best to raise their kids as upstanding, law-abiding, and morally correct members of society. And most parents do an OK, to good-ish job, even though it's one of the most challenging tasks in the world. But teaching your kids about moral ethics and codes of conduct isn't always as straightforward as it sounds, which these parents learned the hard way. Commenting on a Reddit thread asking for the lessons parents tried teaching their kids that completely backfired, these stories are painfully relatable. Nothing burns more than a moral lesson biting you in the ass, especially by your kids. These stories of kids embarrassing their parents and totally missing the point of whatever lesson was trying to be taught; these examples are hilarious and painful at the same time.

Ridiculous Reasons People Ended Friendships

One thing you can be sure about in life is that friendships come and go. You can know someone your whole life and only have a surface level friendship with them, and wind up meeting your best friend at the age of 32. You may also have met your best friend in kindergarten and stayed besties your whole life. Either way, the strength of a friendship is determined less by the length of time but rather on the relationship's quality. And judging by these Reddit stories of petty reasons people ended friendships, they weren't of the best quality to begin with.

Sexual Innuendos In Movies Everyone Is Oblivious To

Disney and Pixar movies are notorious for having those naughty one-liners that totally go over children's heads and are aimed at adults instead. Those jokes that you look back on as an adult and wonder how on earth they made their way into a children's show. The ones that would destroy a child's innocence if they genuinely understood the innuendos that were slipped in (see what I did there?) between the lines. A Reddit thread asked people for the best sexual innuendos from a movie or television show they were blissfully unaware of as children, and the results will evoke horror, as you realize that all your childhood favorite movies are ruined forever.

Sex Workers Reveal Their Worst Requests From Clients

When it comes to sex, there are two groups of people. The first, which probably comprises most of the population, enjoy good old missionary (with a bit of doggy-style thrown in if they're feeling adventurous), vanilla sex. The second is the folk who get off on various kinks and fetishes, ranging from innocent role-play to some really nasty and sometimes dangerous sh*t. Seriously, check any porn website, and you'll find a subcategory for every kink imaginable. Whatever floats your boat, we don't judge, as long as it's consensual and you're having a good time.

But even if you fall into the latter category, what's 'weird' on the kink spectrum is relative; one person's "normal" is another person's "hell to the no". Sex workers, whose job is to make their clients' fantasies come true, are perhaps the group of people most exposed to the pandora's box of sexual kinks and fetishes. But even they have their limits, and a recent AskReddit thread where sex workers described some of the worst requests they received from clients revealed some genuinely shocking stuff. We've compiled a list of some of the strangest requests, which will probably make you realize just how vanilla you are after reading them. Maybe.

People Reveal Aftermath Of Friends Turning Them On By Mistake

Some say that there is no such thing as vvvv between males and females; one person in the relationship will always think of the other more romantically than just a friend. And that may be true, but usually, if you are in that unfortunate position, you'll likely keep those feelings to yourself, at the risk of being rejected and ruining the friendship. But what happens when your friend turns you on accidentally when you know you have a crush on them? Alternatively, what happens if your friend turns you on, but you've never previously had feelings for them? Redditers reveal what happened to them after a friend turned them on by mistake, and spoiler alert, some of the endings are super heartwarming! Others are super cringe-worthy.

Moments People Realized They Weren't Young Anymore

Although growing old is the natural passage of time, no one wants to say goodbye to their youth. Because with age comes more responsibilities, aches and pains, and a loss of blissful naivety about the world. For some, the time flies by without us even realizing it. But for others, there's that one moment where everything changed, and we came to the quick realization that our youth has gone. An AskReddit thread asking people to share those moments is all-too-relatable; check out the answers, and you'll see what I mean.

Crazy Stuff Parents Found In Their Kid's Rooms But Kept Quiet

Snooping through your kid's stuff is never a good idea because you will always find something you didn't want to see. And you can't unsee something. Plus, it's not a great way to build trust.

Have you ever been in a similar situation?

Dumbest Things Men Did To "Prove" Their "Manhood"

For too long, we have taught little boys growing up that expressing emotion is for girls and that real men are "hard." We excuse outbursts of violence and anger under the guise that "boys will be boys," creating a culture of toxic masculinity. The result is a new generation of men that feels the need to prove their "manhood" to feel accepted by society. Of course, this attitude is detrimental to their own mental (and often physical) health and those around them. I'm sure you've seen plenty of real-life examples of this, but a Reddit thread asking for the dumbest things people have seen a man do to "prove" their "manhood" has revealed just how prevalent toxic masculinity is. Read on and dispair!
