People Explain Which Things Are Not As Sexy As Everyone Thinks They Are

As humans, we all have very different and diverse sexual interests and tend to be a little curious. Sometimes however what sounds fun, spontaneous, and romantic ends up being anything but.

Once on a whim during an ATV ride through the woods we decided to spice up our marriage in the woods. Blanket down, total privacy, young and in love…what could go wrong right? Know what you don't think of in the heat of the moment? Mosquitos…and ants. We were on the blanket for only a few minutes when we both started getting bit everywhereeeee.

Upon getting home and checking ourselves out we both looked like we had chickenpox from the waist down. Note to self—just because it looks fun on tv doesn't mean it translates into real life.

Redditor capraithe wanted some brutal honesty on this potentially steamy subject. They asked:

“What's not as sexy as most people seem to think it is?"

Boy oh boy did people deliver.

“brief jerky…”

Edible underwear. Just no.” willieyobslayer

“You guys think the candy underwear is bad? Google ‘brief jerky’ and abandon all hope.” graveyardspin

Take out the ending and it just all seems creepy…

“Stalking and when I say this, I mean how in movies the love interest of a main character kind of pursues them in a really weird way but it's portrayed as ‘so sweet!’ I’m looking at you troy bolton. don't show up on my balcony in the middle of the night with no warning, you'll get maced and arrested.” chicknfari

FYI sugar should NOT go near genitals.

​“Food play. That chocolate sauce may seem like a good idea but really it's just messy.” lumierette

My sister gave my parents some sexy chocolate paste for bodies, she was 16 and did it as a joke. My father said sure why not! My mother told us the next day (during dinner) he had painted her boobs completely with chocolate, did one lick and said, no this is dark chocolate, I don't like it.Camelbeard

​A new meaning to scissoring…

Super long fingernails. They just don't sit right with me." peardizzle

“I don't want to get chopped up by Edna Scissorfingers." Briorash

It gets in places you didn’t know you had…

​“Sex on the Beach.... Sucks! FYI - Sand does not work well for lubricationPOOH-C

“Well its coarse and rough and it gets everywhere.” TheNorseBastard

They must not have neighbors…

“Exaggerated porn star noises. Most woman women don't sound like that.” ​TAW_564

No detective work please.

​“Being mysterious. I’m not trying to solve a cold case file.” santichrist

Apparently you can't mix alcohol and vulvas for some reason…”

“Stripping. Used to be a stripper and if anyone knew even a fraction of what went into it then no one would go to a club ever again." TraditionImpressive2

The first (of only two times) I went to a strip club I was 18 and in my city there are two kinds of strip clubs: g-strings plus alcohol or fully naked and no booze. Apparently you can't mix alcohol and vulvas for some reason. Went to the fully naked kind since I wasn't old enough for the boozy kind."

“It was some low rent place. Anyway, at one point I needed to pee and they had no women's bathrooms so they directed me to use the bathroom in the dancer's changing room. Walked in and what little magic there had been in the club disappeared. Two dancers were arguing with each other, another was breast feeding her baby (which is lovely and wholesome but not usually part of the stripper fantasy)." MaracujaBarracuda

​“Playing hard to get. I will give up.” Midnightrecon

“Nothing says ‘I have no idea how to set healthy boundaries’ like sending rejection signals and expecting them to be ignored.” becomesaflame

As always the sexiest thing to do is getting your partners consent at each step. Have safe fun out there friends!

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
