Don't you love a good myth?

Us too.

Let's put some of NSFW ones to the test.

RedditorWizzlyG33wanted to hear about what lies need to be exposed when it comes to sex, death and all things over the top in life. They asked:

"If MythBusters had a NSFW episode, what would you want to see on it?"

Oh Jamie

"A five second segment where Jamie points at a diagram and says, in complete deadpan, 'This is where the clitoris is.'"

TheFeelsGoodMan

"If they did such an episode, I could see this being in it for sure."

BUSTED!

"I want them to purchase every pill they see on the internet that would make their penis bigger and see what happens."

tkepongo

"I think we can call that one BUSTED already. In what version of any world can you imagine there is a simple pill to make your junk more impressive and every dude you know doesn't already have a case of 10000 pills stashed under the bed?"

Don't Sit

"Can you actually get an STD from a toilet seat?"

BloodyChapel

"This is an interesting thing actually. It was a myth deliberately perpetuated to make people less ashamed of asking for STD tests."

leonielion

"Fun fact: There are multiple STDs that can be dormant (like inactive) for years. Like several years."

"You’d never know you had gotten it. Then something triggers it, maybe an infection or something, and then you start showing symptoms/Can now test positive. So technically a partner from years before could have given it to you and you either think your SO is cheating or haven’t been with anybody in a long time. Either way it’s scary when you think about it."

After Death

"Does a person really stay conscious for a few moments after beheading?"

SammyGotStache

"There was a French physician who tested this in the early 1900s. After a criminal was beheaded he picked up the head and shouted the criminal's name. The guy opened his eyes and made eye contact with the physician over a period of 30 seconds whenever his name was called. Edit: I provided the source in other comments but here it is on the original comment."

Theories

"Size correlates to what? Feet? Nose? So many theories."

"I have size 12 feet and a massive nose and huge hands and the little guy is small."

Oh the lies and the rumors and the shade.

More is More

"They did prove that women with larger breasts will get more tips. Which isn’t really not safe for work, because Kari literally was working at a coffee shop."

"If breast enlargements will help your job would you be able to write them off on your taxes?"

Deep Down

"How deep underwater are you still able to orgasm?"

Successful_Present39

"Pretty sure there's no lower limit. When you're underwater, your body is under pressure, but for the most part doesn't actually get compressed. Only your air spaces (lungs, sinuses, inner ears) are really subject to compression from ambient water pressure. There can be painful exceptions like air pockets inside a tooth filling, which I do not recommend experiencing."

"Most of your body is water or various solids, which push back on the ambient water pressure. You prostate shouldn't be blocked by water pressure any more than your bladder is. Source: am old scuba diver, I've done all kinds of things a hundred feet underwater. At that depth the ambient pressure is 4 bar, which in olden-tymes units is nearly 60 pounds per square inch. Also: fish do it underwater, doesn't seem to stop them."

Tasting Men

"Does pineapple make your semen taste better?"

Keep Thinking

"Post orgasm clarity: How much better can you solve puzzles or remember something?"

texanaftdy

"Well, recently I did a lot of reaction time tests on humanbenchmark.com and while normally I get average of around 140-145, after a good O I consistently got around 130-135, very often getting single clicks close to 120 which almost never happens in other cases. And it's weird because I feel more tired but apparently my reaction time improves for some reason."

"A take on the top ten OSHA violations list to see if they are as dangerous as they say."

People Explain Which Things They Still Prefer To Do The Old-Fashioned Way

Has science gotten to a point where we can make mashed potatoes by just adding water to flakes, producing a smooth and consistent texture?

Yes.

Am I still going to take the extra time to wash, peel, chop, boil, and mash my own potatoes, getting zero textural consistency but maximum deliciousness?

Also yes.

Because sometimes the "old way" is just better, and I'm very serious about my potatoes.
