Recently, someone took to the internet to ask, "Men and Women what do you wish you never knew about the opposite sex?"

Tons of people shared their answer.

To start, the information that women shared about men seemed to be obscure facts, funny, or personal...

1. I wish I didn't know some dudes put things in their penis holes.

- malliscallis

2. Men's balls aka testicles move by themselves..... (like involuntarily).

-lilmayo13

3. Someone told me a long time ago that a lot of guys will say yes to sex from almost any girl. Like the number of men that have a low standard vs the number of women that have a low standard. Maybe that's a false generalization, but it made me feel pretty insecure about myself. Like, "Oh man, does he just want to have sex with me because I'm female, or is it because he's genuinely attracted to me??"

-HarrietSugarcookie

4. That men are just humans, too, like you or I. When I think of the time spent trying to uncover their dastardly secrets - to discover the formula to win them over - it makes me laugh.
-jizzymt

5. How often men don't wash their FREAKING HANDS.

-PaulMcGannsShoes

6. The stains they get in their britches. I'm the laundry doer.

7. Men can willingly move their penises without touching them. It just looks like a mushroom puppet dancing without strings.

-maggotmargot

8. Up until college I thought all men wiped the tip of their penis after peeing, and had to try really hard to avoid sitting on their balls all the time. And avoid dipping them in toilet water. Not really information I wish I didn't learn, but thought it was odd I didn't know sooner.

- chaits514

9. That boys touch their balls and then sniff their fingers.

- Amillllii

10. Just how many men seem to genuinely hate women. At least, they seem like it by the way they act.

- ceeceea

11. My boyfriend told me that when a man gets cold, his nuts shrivel up inside his body.

- PiNKCaNDYxOxO

12. Let's talk about epididymis. Basically, it's some sort of infection of the epididymis (the sperm incubator) that makes it feel like someone is squeezing your nut, and it can apparently just happen whenever. Oh, when you get it once you're far more likely to get it again.

- Kevin1798

13. I didn't really need to know that "dick cheese" existed.

-EvyEarthling

But when it switched to men talking about female's bodies, it became clear that some men seem to know VERY LITTLE about even the most basic elements of a woman's body.

As one contributor pointed out, "I think these answers highlight how much of what female bodies do are not explained as being normal or even brought up at all to our youth."

1. I thought a woman peed in a small, controlled stream similar to a man's. I was wrong. Its an angry, torrential, blitzkrieg of urine.

-HooperDrivesChief8

2. This one I learned from Reddit. Sometimes when a girl farts, the bubble gets trapped between her legs and travels all the way up between her vagina lips and it kinda tickles.

-Landlubber77

3. Legend has it that, during childbirth, the intense abdominal strain can cause the mother to soil herself. Occasionally she may even indadvertedly poop on her baby as it leaves the vulva. Even more interesting is that there is an unwritten code of silence surrounding such events and nobody involved in the process is allowed to speak of it ever again...

-caddy1984

4. A period is not just blood. There's..... more

-callmebigley

5. During child birth, the tissue between the vagina and anus can tear.

-upper_monkey_hry

6. Women can have multiple orgasms. I'm so jealous.

- The_Unforseen_Punz

7. Toxic shock. A 5 minute conversation with my sister. A lifelong distrust of tampons.

-thetinymoo

8. Episiotomy. Just nope... nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope.

-BlessedMilk

9. "Hovering" in public restrooms, effectively spraying the toilet seat with urine, necessitating more hovering. It's a vicious cycle.

-deluezian

10. Apparently women use shower heads to masturbate like howwww.

- Alien_Liver

11. Apparently, female genitalia can also function as a carrying handle.

-liarandahorsethief

12. I knew someone who didn't know girls used toilet paper after they peed until he was about 20 years old.

-verydepressedwalnut

13. Apparently women want men as much as men want women. Being a single 30 year old man, this is just an additional burn at this point.

- Stu-ce-ugdrc

Of course, there were also some amazing all-star answers that probably threw everyone for a loop.

1. Some women, when constipated, will 'squeeze' out the poop by putting their fingers in their vagina and moving the poo down through the wall between the two holes, manually.

I mean I'm not judging at all, I'm jealous I can't do the same thing. But I still wish I didn't know about it.

-anotherphilodox

2. Male and female genitalia both develop from the same embryonic cells:

The Clitoris = The Head of the Penis

Clitoral Shaft, G-Spot = The Penile Shaft

The Outer Vaginal Lips = The Scrotum

Enjoy your next night out.

- nongbenz

3. That some men death grip so hard on their penis when masturbating that they can no longer cum from sex.

-Makemewantitbad

4. Peanut butter jelly wipes.... Never needed to know about those.

-SaveTheAles

5. For me I wish I didn't know how often women tell white lies to protect men's feelings. I get why it's so often necessary, but it makes you suspect of EVERYTHING.

-DanBian20

6. Apparently boasting about sexually assaulting women is normal in some circles of men. Particularly the older generation. I find that really sad :(

- Sunshine_of_your_Lov

7. There is nothing that I wish I didn't know about women. Every bit of information that I gain makes me better for my partner. whether it's a more skilled lover or a more understanding boyfriend, there is nothing that I wish that I didn't know.

-Dullahan915

8. That 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted in some way in their lifetime. It's good to know, I just wish it weren't true :(

- TaylorS1986

9. I wish I didn't know that squirting is almost the exact same ingredients as urine.

- Zer0mist

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
