We've all been caught in strange situations all of a sudden, but sometimes they have happy endings.
Here are fifteen times people had a weird encounter that led to sex.
Many thanks to Reddit user for posing this question. You can check out more answers from the source at the end of this article!
1/15. I lost my virginity playing Madden 2005. It was my first weekend back from college and this high school girl Alex, who'd been with 3-4 of my friends prior, wanted to hang out. She was pretty, blonde, and I was still a virgin in college, so I agreed.
Fifteen minutes later, I get a call on my cell phone that she was outside. I come out and her dad is standing there. He looks at me and says, 'I like to know who my daughter is hanging out with.' We exchange (un)pleasantries, and Alex comes upstairs. Being an awkward guy, I suggest we play video games. For some inexplicable reason, she wants to play Madden, which she informs me she has never played before. Thinking on my toes, I tell her we should 'put some stakes on it.' We agree that for everyday touchdown I score, she takes a piece of clothing off. For every touchdown she scores, I do the same.
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that I was going to beat her soundly. She would 'Ask Madden' every play. When she would do so, a cursor would blink on the screen for which play Madden suggested. Alex would then hit the corresponding button. Since I could see this too, I knew exactly what plays she would be running and call the perfect offense or defense to counter it. It was like the real life Packers playing a ragtag group of children.
I was up around 28-0, she was naked as the day she was born, and I realized how stupid I'd been. I was fully clothed with a naked girl next to me. I called a punt formation while she had the ball and let her complete a pass. She ran it up the sideline for a touchdown. I let her do this about three more times. I don't know if she knew I was letting her score, but it didn't matter. We were literally both naked and playing the game (yes, I was STILL that scared to make a move) when she looked me dead in the eyes and asked, 'Wanna have sex?' Nonchalantly, I said 'Sure.'
Best five seconds of sex ever.
2/15. I've hooked up at weddings and even at funerals, yes, funerals. But last weekend I was driving along a double two-lane street (two lanes in each direction) past a park near sunset. I am driving in the far left (middle of the road) and a dog comes bolting full blast from the park from the right and runs full on into the street so fast I had barely enough time to swerve left (causing me to swerve into what would be oncoming traffic). Luckily no cars in either direction but I unfortunately still hit the dog.
The dog wasn't looking good. Owner came running out who just happened to be extremely good looking. She was obviously crying. She knew her dog ran into the street and basically HIT ME and wasn't upset directly at me but still she was crying. Someone from park knew name of a 24 emergency room for pets and I googled it on phone and offered to drive her and the dog...

It was only a few miles down. I went in with them. I gave her my name number and my apologies. I also left my name and number and told the vet tech that I would pay for any diagnostics, blood, x-rays, treatments for the dog because basically I felt like total sh*t in this situation.
Few days later she calls me and tells me they had to put her dog down. I gave my sincerest apologies and she declined for me to pay any of the bills. She says she didn't know why her dog bolted into the middle of the street and didn't blame me. We somehow just kept on talking and talking. She accepted my offer to grab a drink a couple days later. One thing led to another and well, surprise sex. So there you have it.
3/15. When I was about 25-26 I was at the local bar I hung out at. There was an unfamiliar group of girls to which I chatted to for about 5 mins top, earlier in the evening. I noticed all but one of the girls left and the one that stayed came up to the bar where I was. Bartender calls last call, and, being quite buzzed, I turn to her and say, kind of jokingly but not really, "How 'bout you and I head back to my place for some sex?"
Everyone at the bar heard it and kind of chuckled.
Until she says, "Sure, I 've never done this before but let's go". You could have heard a pin drop. Next time I went there I got a standing ovation from the regulars that were there, everyone that wasn't asked what was going on, so the word spread which led to another strange girl approach me with a score. I actually rode that wave about 3 more times.
4/15. Back in the day I was hanging out with friends at a dance club. Dancing, drinking, having a good time. Suddenly I'm being pursued on the dance floor by a guy. Grinding, groping. I let him know that I'm not homosexual and he laughs, apologizes, and backs off.
About twenty minutes later, at the bar, I'm getting a drink and the same guy comes over to me with a gorgeous brunette girl on his arm. He introduces me to the lady and buys a drink for myself and her. Then he smiles and leaves us. Ended up going on a few dates with her, and then having freaky porno-sex in her living room, bedroom, car, bathroom, etc. Didn't last long though. Maybe eight weeks?

5/15. A few summers ago I painted houses. I was a skinny 20 year old and needed a summer job. Well, come July my buddy and I started to paint this huge, beautiful house, complete with hot tub, pool and full-sized basketball court. The owners were super nice and let us swim in the pool after work. They also had a super hot daughter that was 23.
Well, one day, the owners left for vacation and I'm up on a 20+ feet ladder, painting the dormer of the hot girls bedroom. She comes in her room, sees me and proceeds to walk over to the window to tell me something (the windows were the kind that you crank and they open up away from you). She starts cranking the window, but doesn't see that it's going to hit my ladder. Que Murphy's Law, the window hits my ladder, makes it unsteady and I proceed to slide down the side of her house, two floors up, holding on for dear life to this ladder. The ladder stops and I'm flung off and land on my back and nail my head on the concrete.
I was knocked out for awhile and next thing I remember, I wake up in the hospital with a broken back and a major concussion. Needless to say, she felt bad and stayed by my bed until I could leave (stayed there for 4 days until I could go home). My buddy finished painting the house and I was bed-ridden for almost a month. The girl always brought me flowers and gifts and we ended up dating and having great apology sex. Her parents even gave me an extra $500 for painting.
6/15. Brought a bucket of legos to a house party (who doesn't love to play drunk legos?). So I'm laying on the floor sh*tfaced building a boat, and this girl comes sits next to me, and starts building a spaceship.
We now live together.
7/15. I spent a night at hotel with a girl. Woke up hung over a little so I went to 7-11 to buy some stuff. Met a girl in line at 7-11 and took her to a different hotel a block down from the original hotel. I high-fived myself.
8/15. Walking around Montreal trying to find nutmeg. I didn't speak french well--she didn't speak english well. We spent an hour or so walking around the city trying to find fresh nutmeg. Eventually we gave up and went for coffee.
Over coffee we made the sexy-eyes and tried to figure out that the other was saying. She invited me back to her place. We had sex, repeatedly. We took a shower, I got dressed and left.
I ultimately made it back to my friends apartment six hours later, still with no nutmeg.

9/15. I opened a beer can, turned the tag around 180 degrees, flicked it away and it landed squared down in the cleavage of a hot girl sitting a few meters away. Got talking. Had sex.
10/15. One time I struck up a conversation with a cute girl in a bar. The conversation went pretty well, and I ended up taking her back to her place.
Such a thing has never happened before or since. Was it weird? IT WAS FOR ME.
11/15. Absolutely true story; 1986, I was six years old, stealing sampling candy out of a bin at the Sunnymount Produce market in Sunnyvale, CA. 10 feet away, I notice a cute blonde girl about my age watching me, and I shot her a smile. Her mother came flying around the corner and very loudly scolded me so that the whole store could hear. Fortunately my oft-absentee father was too busy checking out artichokes to notice.
Flash forward 10 years, and this girl and I go to the same high school and have become friends. During one of our marathon conversations, we stumbled onto the candy bin story somehow and connected the dots, realizing we met so long ago! She said she remembered thinking I was kinda cute. As soon as I got my driver's license we were off to my Mom's house every day for lunch (we coordinated our free class periods before and after and had epic 3 hour lunches), and we went at it like rabbits.
Our 10 year wedding anniversary is next month.
12/15. In highschool, I was frequently at my good friend's house because his parents were cool and gave us a fair amount of freedom.
One night we're all hanging out and it's him, his girlfriend, my friend, and I. My friend was this girl who I met while on the swim team, and she swam for a different school. I met her sophomore year and she was introduced to me as a lesbian, but that mattered not to me. She kissed me junior year, which was awesome but not really all that sexual, just a good kiss.
Well senior year arrives and we're hanging out at my friend's house. We decide to go in a hot tub and my friend and his girlfriend take up his bedroom getting changed into their bathing suits. The girl and I figure we can take the bathroom, all we're doing is getting changed, surely adults like us can handle that.

We get naked, and then BAM I was inside of her and we were violating every square foot of floor and counter space in my friend's bathroom. The sex was welcomed, but completely unexpected.
13/15. When I was 16, my best friend was having a party because her parents were out of town. She had gone to a concert the weekend prior, met the band, Rufio, and she and the singer kind of hit it off. The whole band came to our party.
So a few of us are drinking Smirnoff Ice in her bedroom and the rest of the band is going on and on about how they don't know how to talk to chicks. My friend Dan pipes up and says, "All you have to do is dare them, man. Watch this. Jackie, I dare you to go have sex with Mike." Mike was gorgeous, so I thought about it..
I went downstairs to where Mike was playing pool and said something like, "I just got dared to f*ck you. Let's go."
So we went into the bathroom and had sex with 30 people outside trying to break down the door. Someone found the bathroom key, they opened it up, there are pictures.
14/15. I was at a house party with this guy I had been seeing. At least I thought we had been seeing each other. Turns out he has a girlfriend and she shows up to this same party. She finds out about me, she wants to fight me, I apologize over and over to her (even though her d-bag boyfriend told me he was single).
She's crying, I'm crying and apologizing.
I go into the other room to get away from the situation where this guy comes up to me and starts trying to calm me down. I had talked to him previously in the evening but couldn't remember for the life of me what his name was. He and I end up leaving and going back to his place. Sexytime ensues, afterward I try and duck out without him waking up. He wakes up and asks if I want breakfast.
We dated for two months.

15/15. The night before my eighteenth birthday I was at a party in the woods of a nearby development (common place to have bonfire parties at the time). Someone sees lights at the entrance of the trail, and it turns out the cops had found out about the party and were coming to bust it up.
Everyone scatters off in different directions through the woods. As I had drank quite a bit I didn't want to drive. I then tried calling a few of my friends, but everyone was either drunk or asleep. I then received a text from a girl that said she and Tori wanted to see me for my birthday.
I told them that if they really wanted to see me they could come rescue me as I was hiding in the bushes waiting for the cops to go away. They said yes.
About a half an hour later (they live far away) they come pick me up (ancillary details omitted). We then drive around for a bit, talking about nothing important, and then they drive to the park.
We end up getting out and walking around, and they give me a card that was one of those silly poems. On the last line, however, it said something about "Now we can hook up with you!" So with having at least a sixpack of confidence in my belly, I say so is it gonna be just one or both of you tonight then?
They laughed but then as we got back in the car, they asked me to go outside for a bit. I obliged, and when I got back in they asked me if I had a place to go. I couldn't go home because my parents were home, but I said we could go to my friend, Frank's, house. Frank doesn't have a cell phone, so I went there on faith, but he also has a mom that doesn't care what he does, so it wasn't that much of a leap. When I get there, I go in by myself at first to find that he is asleep.
I wake him up, and say "Frank, I have two girls in the car that want to have sex. I need your bed. PLEASE." Frank pulled one of the greatest wing man moves ever for me that night. He got up, went to his garage, and slept in his car. I proceeded to have the best welcoming to adulthood a person could ask for by having a threesome on his bed. It was good.
Many people live by the mantra that ignorance is bliss.
It's true, how being left in the dark about influential pieces of information is preferable.
For example, being cognizant about a co-worker's questionable private life can adversely affect how others interact with this individual if they object to their tendencies outside of the workplace.
Not knowing certain things can be freeing, a notion that was explored when Redditor Distantmole asked:
"What’s something you really wish you didn’t know?"
These Redditor examples are based on an occupational hazard.
"How to fix a printer. Sometimes, I just play dumb when I'm asked..."
"I was the ONLY one who knew how to unjam the printer at my old job. And it was a lemon - it jammed at least once a day. I quit the job because I was overworked and unappreciated. My replacement left in less than a year. I hope they're suffering without their little resident unjammer. Thanks for letting me vent."
Parents are people too, and you wouldn't be here were it not for them.
So there's that.
The Origin Of You
"I know exactly where, when, and how I was made in grand detail. I have no idea why my parents felt the need to tell me this, but I now know and I wish i didn't."
"I was conceived in a waterbed in my parents’ old condo. My dad told me when I was 15…"
Pulling Back The Curtain
"My father photographed all the births, me and my siblings."
"Each of us had a photo album growing up."
"They started with the photos of our births."
"My father took photos of us coming out.... of the vagina."
"This is the first page of my childhood photo album."
Too Close For Comfort
"My parents told me they conceived my younger sibling in a tent with me and my older sibling while we were sleeping in the same tent. I did not need to know that."
You think you know everything about the members of your family.
However, some things about them are better left a mystery.
"Was on a vacation with my grandma in a shared room and she disappeared into the bathroom for 5 minutes, came out, I didn't think any of it and didn't care, and she came up to me and said."
"I have bad constipation right now so I shoved a bit of soap in my butt to help softening it up! Maybe I'll fart bubbles soon, he he!"
"That happened 6 years ago but it's burned into my brain."
The Family's An Open Book
"Didn't need to know the reason I'm mums least favourite child and I certainly didn't need her to tell me what colour my step dad's pubes are. Didn't need my Grandparents to tell me that they had sex the night before on the couch I was sitting on or my grans favourite position."
"Also didn't need to know my uncle only has one testicle or that my dad was in the room when my cousin was conceived. My family is far to open lol."
"If you find an unlabeled videotape laying around burn the f'king thing just in case."
The myth of mammals.
Scary Fish Tongue
"There is a parasitic isopod that gets inside a fish’s mouth, severs the tongue, and lives in the fish’s mouth acting as a replacement tongue."
I wish I didn't know about as Demodex or eyelash mites.
Oh, you didn't about them?
Prepare to have your mind blown.
There is a community of mites living in the pores of our faces.
Ever wondered why your face randomly itches when there's nothing visibly making contact with your face? That's because these little stubby boring worms–that are a distant relative of ticks and spiders–are having a party inside your fleshy dwelling, and they are grateful for its host to extend the welcome mat.
Americans often drop popular sayings in conversation that have some element of truth to them.
You've undoubtedly come across phrases like, "Kill two birds with one stone" or "it's raining cats and dogs."
While those are used to describe actions, like the state of the weather, there are other phrases that are dispensed as words of wisdom to help individuals through a challenging situation.
But the endeavor to console someone by using this tactic is not always effective.
Curious to hear examples of this, Redditor Braca5 asked:
"What popular sayings are bullsh*t?"
These sound familiar?
The Survivor Mentality
"whatever doesn't kill you just makes you stronger."
"Looks aren't important."
"It's true. They don't always or entirely matter, but they do. That's kind of how superficial humans are."
Not Every Pain Heals
"Time heals all wounds."
"There's another one that goes like this 'time heals nothing, it just replaces memories.'"
The stigma around this is so foul, the guilty will lie about their offensive crime.
"He who smelt it dealt it"
"Whoever said the rhyme did the crime."
Psychology Around The Guilt
"The irony is it's almost always the opposite that's true. Most people would rather just be quiet about a fart than try to put it on somebody else and as it is you usually become pretty accustomed to your own and probably don't even smell half of the ones that slip out so likely the person who dealt it is going to be one of the last to actually consciously smell it."
Playing by the rules doesn't always get you places.
"Cheaters never win."
"A better saying:"
'Treason doth never prosper, what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason.' John Harington (1561 - 1612)
Comeuppance Never Comes
"What goes around, comes around."
"Bullsh*t. I've seen people be jerks my entire life (I'm 57 y/o) and they never got what should have come around to them."
Thing About Karma
"Worse, it's an excuse to not take responsibility. A few years back, I had discovered a nasty person who was fooling the public by buying dogs from Amish auctions of out of state, bringing them, unvaccinated, across state lines, and pawning them off on the public as 'rescues' but also taking loads of donations when she was not registered as a charity. She was not using the funds for medical care. The gal was a flashy blonde in designer clothes and knew how to fool people."
"The county authorities were investigating and needed more evidence. I approached the owner of a local pet supply store where she operated her scam and asked him to cooperate. He banned her from the store but completely refused to cooperate with the investigation. Excuse, 'Karma will get her.'"
"B*tch got off with just a fine when she would have faced animal cruelty charges."
"Karma? No, it's not a thing."
Those who adopt a passive way of thinking end up making up for lost time.
Turning A Blind Eye
"Out of sight, out of mind."
"Ever lost track of a spider?"
How Much Time Do You Have?
"Good things come to those who wait."
Lond Distance Relationships Aren't For Everyone
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”
I think those who say "if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life," is debatable.
Depending on the situation, being forced to do something you once loved so you could earn a living can potentially breed resentment.
I'm a former dancer who absolutely lived off the adrenaline of performing on a stage. But when the cast I was performing with at a theme park was forced to do the same rigorous show five times a day–sometimes in intense heat–I was miserable.
Once, I severely twisted my ankle mid-performance simply because I was physically exhausted but continued giving it my 100% when my body was ready to give out. That's when most performance-based injuries occur.
That phrase certainly got a second hard look from me back then.
No two people share exactly the same likes and interests.
But on occasion, one might find themselves being among the few, if not the sole members of a certain fan club.
Indeed, while Cats earned a place on the list of the worst movies of all time, its 19% score on Rotten Tomatoes suggests that there are a handful of people who actually liked it.
Or while many people dread having to clean their homes, some simply can't wait to get started, and will look for any and every opportunity to do so.
Redditor StardustNova_ was curious to hear where members of the Reddit community found themselves in a distinct minority of appreciation, leading them to ask:
"What's something you like that the vast majority people hate?"
You've got me all tied up in knots!
"I love untangling things."
"Your Christmas lights end up in a ball and there’s no telling where it starts or ends?"
"Got a necklace that got rolled up into a total mess?"
"I’m your de-tangler."
"Headphones come out of your pocket looking like a Tangela? "

Can't dive too deep!
"I got addicted to research when I was in college and something about putting everything together to present a coherent argument is just exciting for me."- ILoveFoodALotMore
It's always interesting to hear the thing which would make some people groan with misery that would make others cheer with glee.
Nor should always look down on someone for loving something you absolutely hate, as they could help you wrap those presents you've been putting off because you hate it so much.
And who knows, maybe Cats wasn't as bad as you remembered...
It's usually a good feeling to be "on top".
To be found at the top of the list of a notable or unique accomplishment.
Though having the distinction of being in the top 0.1 percent of something might not always be something to brag about, resulting in some keeping this distinction to themselves.
If only because some people might be unusually fascinated by their so-called "accomplishment", that they'll never stop being bombarded by questions.
Redditor ImLostInTheForrest was curious to hear if any members of the Reddit community believed they were in the 0.1 percent of anything, be it commendable, bizarre or unfortunate, leading them to ask:
"What’s something you believe you may be in the 0.1% of?"
A mighty heart indeed
"Scars on my heart."
"I have about 30, I think."
"On my 4th heart procedure, I had 24 cardiac ablations."
"They use radio waves to kill tissue to create scarring so that effectively signals can't travel through that way."
"During one procedure, epicardial, meaning both inside and outside the heart. by the top electrophysiologist on the east coast."
"He said only one other patient of his had more done in one procedure."
"Took 10 hours."
"I could hear the nurses gossiping about me in the hallway."

An exclusive club no one wants to be part of...
"I have this condition called Miyoshi Myopathy, which, thankfully, affects only my calves and hence my walking capabilities."
"My doctor told me it is rare, but tbh statistically rare does not really mean anything, everyone might have it but they either did not get out of their way to test it, via taking blood and had it examined in a lab, or they just never realized there was something wrong at all."
"If you are wondering why I said 'Thankfully it only affected the legs', it is because it is a muscle disorder, and some disorders affect Cardiac, heart, and Pulmonary, lungs, muscles that will obviously not be pretty."
"I have to get tested every year to make sure all my vital functions are normal and as of now nothing significant is noted and I should be living a long and healthy life."- 1123Icantthinkofname
It's harder than you think...
"Folks who know percentages."- mrg1957Giphy
"Apparently only 0.1% of people become mechanical engineers in the US and an even smaller percentage are women, so maybe that?"
"I was also less than 2 lbs when I was born, and I think the percentage is probably similar."
"I somehow have no lasting physical issues from that, though my sister has cerebral palsy."- s_p_o_c_k
Plenty to go around!
"I have 3 functional kidneys."
"No it doesn't mean I pee more."
"No it doesn't mean I can drink more alcohol, thats the liver."
"No I won't sell it for under $71,241." - User Deleted
While some wouldn't necessarily consider some of these things an accomplishment, all of them certainly make for fascinating conversation starters.
Seriously, where would the third kidney even go...?
