What's the worst- revealing a dark truth or doing an embarrassing dare? It's truly a case of pick your poison, especially in social circles during childhood and adolescence. Here's the thing about truth, though- you can always lie.
I got asked if I'd ever had sex with someone in the room other than my girlfriend. I had sex with her friend about 3 weeks before I even met my gf but me and her friend had decided to keep it secret because it was a one time thing.
I said no, and that turned out to be the right idea. Was with that gf for 6 years in a very loving and fulfilling relationship. I did tell her eventually, but we'd only been dating a couple of weeks, it would have ruined things. By the time I told her she didn't care.
That relationship ended, but I'm glad I had it.
Isn't that a scene in "Perks of Being a Wallflower"?Giphy
The worst is when you're asked who you would have sex with in the room and your just sitting there thinking "I'd definitely bang so and so," cause you're a horny 16-year-old but you lie because you're embarrassed and awkward.
I always gotta lie about when I lost my virginity because the answer is a low number and it kills the mood. It's a real pickle because I don't wanna lie but I've seen people bring that kind of stuff up in lighthearted games and it never ends well.
Why would you play that with your family?!
"Are you still a virgin?"
I mean I was playing with my family then my dad asked me that question what the hell was I supposed to say? "Why yes dad, I'm no longer a virgin. In fact, I lost it to your friends son Harvey."
I would never violate Truth or Dare rules like that.
That's some childhood logic right there.
That I had had my first kiss. People I barely knew and wouldn't have to see again soon, wasn't going to let them think I was completely inexperienced.

Were you the one shagging [REDACTED] last year at the Christmas party?
Why yes, Susan. I was in fact Naughty Santa. But unlike the real thing, I come more than once a year.
Blast from the past.
I got asked if I'd ever performed fellatio. It was like 1994. I said "no", and got so defensive it ruined the whole game for everybody, but I blame the prick who asked.
To clarify, the reasons I lied and lied so aggressively was that I:
- Had homophobic foster parents.
- Had a girlfriend.
My social security number. Didn't even have it memorized at the time.
When Truth or Dare gets real.Giphy
I was playing truth or dare with my Christian friends. I say truth when it was my turn and they ask "Do you believe in god?" I knew how extremely religious they and their parents were but I didn't want their parents to find out and prevent me from seeing them so just said "Yeah lmao".
The go-to question.
They always asked "are you a virgin?"
Most people lie because they are a virgin.
I lied and said I was a virgin. I wasn't, but it wasn't something I was particularly fond of talking about. It lost my virginity far too early. It was essentially peer pressure sex and I was 13.
I consider my loss of virginity was the moment I had enjoyable sex, and that was 17.
I was playing with a group of friends and my at the time
c**t girlfriend. I was asked if I was ever in an abusive relationship. I had to say no. My girlfriend would hit me when she got mad. I had enough when she tried to attack me with a knife.
Time to pick dare.
