Europeans Reveal The Different Ways They View Sex In Their Own Countries

Europe is a continent filled with a vast variety of cultures, languages, and laws. Often on this side of the world, we like to clump them into one big group, "European's have such good style," "European's are wine-oholics," "'European's are so sexual." But it's really impossible to talk about them all at once. Within Europe, there are some cities coined as fashion capitals, and some countries are actually very open when it comes to sexual exploration, but there are also catholic countries where you won't see a lot of sexual empowerment. Also, some countries have Muslim majorities where people don't drink alcohol at all.

The point of all of this is that it is fascinating to explore the many different perspectives of Europe and even compare them to what we have going on here in the US. On Reddit people from different European counties shared their 'sexual normalities,' and you might find the answers to be very titillating.

Sex Workers Disclose The Weirdest Things People Actually Paid Them To Do

Sex workers definitely have an interesting career. I think, naturally, we are all kind of curious about their day-to-day. Or maybe it's more like night-to-night. Still, it is a good thing that people are becoming more tolerant and accepting towards people with all kinds of careers. We all have to pay the rent somehow, the landlord doesn't care how we acquire our funds. Whether it's by selling cars or sticking things up your.... I digress.

Anyway, even with a job as unpredictable as them, there must be times where sex workers are caught way off guard by the requests they get. 

This Reddit thread capitalizes on such outlandish moments.

Fifteen Aggravating 'Nice Girls Finish Last' Stories

Those who believe in karma would say that doing good things brings more good things. It's not a religious belief, but it shows a slight trust in the universe. Personally, I think that whatever you have to tell yourself in order to keep treating people kindly sounds good to me. Karma can sure as heck take a long time though, and sometimes we can all lose patience. At least we can relate to each other on Reddit.

People Describe Their Funny Childbirth Stories

Giving birth is without a doubt one of the most beautiful miracles to occur every single second in this life. Side-note: Isn't that crazy? However, even though it is a precious thing, it is uncomfortable, painful, and gooey. I don't know about you, but my mom loves to remind me of that too. I guess childbirth/raising children are both one of those things that you never fully understand until you give it a go.

Women Reflect On Awkward Moments They Are Completely Responsible For

Okay, we are all awkward at times. We all have questionable judgement when we're not paying attention, or reading the room quite right. It happens, it's life. You may want to crawl in a hole, but eventually, after you have some time to distance yourself from the event you may realize what you said was f*cking hilarious. Hopefully whoever witnessed the moment with you is able to laugh at it too and not hold it against you.

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.

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!

People's Stories Of Finding Success Over The Age Of 40

Although people typically map out their career path in their 20's, not everyone is fortunate enough to figure out their life's calling at such a young age. Whether it be down to lack of opportunity, becoming a parent and not working, or just not figuring it out sooner, many people only decide what they want to do much later in life. Those who return to school and start a new career at an older age need a tremendous amount of tenacity and determination and should be admired. One guy, Doug Murano, wanted to celebrate these people and tweeted that he was "tired of "under 40" lists," he called for Twitter users to "Show me someone who got their Ph.D. at 60 after losing everything. Give me the 70-year-old debut novelist who writes from a lifetime of love and grief. Give me calloused hands and tender hearts." People were eager to share their 'over-40' success stories, which were the definition of heartwarming. Here are some of the best.
