When a young couple in Bijie, Guizhou, China tried for four years to conceive a child and had no success, they had no choice but to consult a professional.

Guizhou is a mountainous province in southwest China. It's known for its (apparently very) traditional rural villages.


According to UK paper Metro, the 26-year-old husband and 24-year-old wife met with an obstetrician. They were in for the shock of their lives.

The perplexed couple told Doctor Liu Hongmei they were having sex regularly. The wife worried she might be infertile.

The wife then explained she suffered "unusual pain" during intercourse, but she soldiered on, sacrificing her discomfort for the ultimate goal of becoming a mother.

Based on the wife's description of her symptoms, the doctor believed her patient might have been suffering from a gynecological disease.

However, testing results revealed the woman was still a virgin.

Say what?

The doctor probed deeper into the peculiar case. After examining the woman's anus Doctor Liu discovered she could easily slip three fingers inside the woman.

The young couple had been having anal intercourse for four years trying to conceive a child.

Four years.




People were genuinely shocked at their lack of sex education.

There were also those who expressed concerns about the couple's potential as parents.





There were a few who were skeptical of the husband's motives and claiming ignorance about how to conceive.




The couple was given a brochure on the basics of heterosexual sex.

Finally, after years of being in the dark about how to conceive a child, the woman became pregnant a few months later.

When the now retired doctor heard the good news, she said:

"Four years of marriage and neither the husband nor wife knew how to get pregnant. Couples so lacking in general knowledge are very rare."
"But it is not uncommon for people to lack or have misconceptions regarding sexual knowledge."

The happy couple thanked Doctor Liu Hongmei with a gift of 100 eggs and a live hen as a token of their gratitude.

Although many saw the humor in their story, their lack of knowledge shows the importance of proper sex education for all people.

A lot of people I know really hate small talk. I get it. It can feel daunting. You just met someone. What do you talk about? What can you say that won't leave you feeling like such a dolt? The key, of course, is to simply put the ball in their court. Get this new person to start talking with an excellent icebreaker and conversation should start flowing in no time.

People offered their best advice after Redditor Cavalierkrav asked the online community,

"What's your favorite question to ask someone to get to know them better?"

We are all good at something however, some talents are a bit more obscure than others, or perhaps your talent isn't something that easily comes up in conversation. I have almost oddly successful thrifting and sale trips. My designer dress? Got it for a small fraction of the price. I've literally had multiple people ask if I could take them shopping to help them find stuff like I do.

Have you ever worked a job that was super toxic? Like the type where you hated going into work, and the threat of being fired at any second was always looming over your head? I have, and it sucks. I worked for a florist, and I got fired for throwing up at work after a bad reaction from medication. That sucked.
