30 'Truth Or Dare' Games That Got WAY Too Out Of Control.

30 'Truth Or Dare' Games That Got WAY Too Out Of Control.

Truth-or-dare a harmless childhood game, right? Well as it turns out, sometimes this seemingly innocent game can get way, way, WAY too out of hand. These people reveal their craziest "truth-or-dare" moments.

1/30. I think my most exciting game of truth or dare was cut down in its prime when a guy dared his girlfriend to flash everyone and then broke down crying because now everyone had seen her bikini zone and he no longer felt special.


2/30. At my first job, back when I was a teenager, about 6 of us were playing this mid-shift. 3 girls, 3 guys. It was barely starting to get risqu and one of the guys is asked "have you ever masturbated to thoughts of a coworker?" And he says yes.

This is as juicy as it's gotten, so we latch onto it. The next time around, he's asked if he's masturbated to anyone else playing. He says yes. Next round, he's asked to name which of us he's jerked it to. He looks at us one by one, then says "all of you." The guys all got flustered as hell, they'd never even realized they were on the roster.


3/30. Conservative Christian school. Truth or Dare App.

Task: Dry hump the person to your right for 30 seconds. Teacher was there. Needless to say the game ended quickly.


4/30. When three of my friends, all straight males, wound up laying on the floor trying to see who could get a full raging boner first.

One of their girlfriends walked in on the competition.

We don't play Truth Or Dare anymore.


5/30. Probably the most extreme was at a weekend cabin party I was at. We were in a hot tub, there was 7 of us, most of the women were topless and some of us guys were bottomless (this had been going on for like a couple hours at this point, and we were supremely drunk). The dares got a little sexual, but that's not the extreme part of this. It's early May, but as the night goes on it gets very cold, then it starts to rain.

Then the wind picks up.

We're all too exposed and afraid of the cold to want to leave the safety of the hot tub. I also think we were too drunk to notice the conditions around us getting worse. But eventually we started sobering up and the heat of the water started dissipating. Still, the game continued, we were all shivering but no one wanted to be the first to wimp out. Until our sober sibling for the night comes out and yells at us to come in. The hot tub was sort of in the corner of this cabin, so she was surprised at what she saw to say the least.

Not 5 minutes after we gather our clothes and get inside, a gust of wind comes through and starts blowing around the furniture outside and also knocks out power. Later we found out that the wind we had continued to play truth or dare in had gotten up to 70 mph, there was some serious damage back in town, some of the town didn't have power for a week (which makes it surprising that we still had it at our dinky cabin on the side of a mountain). When we left 2 days later there were branches blocking the road down from the cabin we had to clear.

We all came very close to dying of hypothermia and/or having our head split open by flying furniture.


6/30. The game was escalating too fast anyway. This wasn't even the worst thing that happened that night but: gay friend accepted a dare to put his erect penis in a female friend. Boyfriend got him hard and while everyone (including the "victims") laughed, he mounted friend, and started pumping away. "OMG this actually feels great!" he managed to get out before looking REALLY ecstatic. She was enjoying herself as well.

It got awkwardly sex-y, they were just plain f*cking. It didn't last long. He came. "OMG I JUST CAME! hahaha!". "OMG IF I GET PREGNANT I'M GONNA KILL YOU HAHAHAHA!" The game went on. More awkwardness was had. Nothing topped the awkwardness of her calling him a week later, in tears, because she was indeed pregnant. She did not murder him in the end.

The kid just turned 18, FYI.


7/30. Got dared by my best friend to give my boyfriend a blowjob in front of the group. I was too nervous to actually get him off, and another friend dared my best friend (who is gay) to finish the job for me. He was able to get boyfriend off in about ten seconds.

Things were awkward for a long time after that.


8/30. Me: Truth My sister: Mom and Dad never loved you. Me: I don't think that's how the game works.


9/30. At a sleepover in junior high we dared our friend to strip down to his know, homoerotic pubescent stuff. He comes out from the other room completely naked and gyrating, saying "You got more than you bargained for!"


10/30. In my first or second year of UNI my group of friends and I were having a get together after finals ended. Considering finals had just ended and it was only about 7 of us, consuming alcohol seemed like the go to activity.

So once the buzz started to hit us one of my friends tried to start a game of spin the bottle, but being a group of three couples and one single guy we decided to play truth or dare instead.

Like all truth or dare games it started out pretty innocently (Take more shots, who's your celebrity crush, etc.), but eventually things turned a bit weird.

(story continued on the next page...)

More crazy stories on the next page!

Our one single guy decided to dare one of the girls to lick whipped cream off of his shlong, and with a reluctant nod from her boyfriend she got to action. Or... At least tried to.

Once she took off the dude's pants and saw his (well) hung appendage she yells "Damn I've never seen one this big!" And before she could even uncap the whipped cream her boyfriend was swinging full force at the guy.

Me and my other friend had to get in between a half naked guy and a drunk ape, and by the time we split them up everyone was uncomfortable as hell.

After we resolved it, as my girlfriend and I started leaving, I just remember her leaning up to my ear and telling me "She knew her boyfriend was self conscious about his junk."


11/30. Turned into a threesome with at the time gf and her friend.


12/30. I (24f) was playing truth or dare with my roommates (24m, 25m). Roommate number one dares roommate number two to pee on me. Neither of us put up a fight.. roomie number one made us feel weird for being down for the dare.


13/30. Dead of winter and somebody dared one of my classmates to stick his tongue to a flagpole. Didn't even use proper dare etiquette.


14/30. When I was around around 10 I played Truth or Dare with some girls a few years older than me. I got dared to TP the principals house (of their school). It was a pretty big house maybe 3500 sq ft. They all ended up coming with me, but my dad catches us sneaking out and asks us where we're going. All of the girls start stammering and trying to tell a lie, and I look at my dad and say "We're gonna go TP a house." My dad starts laughing and responds with "Well sounds like you need adult supervision for that lets go." We ended up bringing a 10 pack of toilet paper and using the entire thing.

'Twas a fun a night.


15/30. Playing with some friends a long time ago. It was a card-based game (like Cards Against Humanity) where everyone had a pile of "Truth" cards and "Dare" cards.

For each turn the victim would opt for a Truth or a Dare. The questioner would then pull the top card from the appropriate stack, either a card with a question on it (usually off-color or loaded with sexual innuendo) or a card with a dare on it (also semi-sexual, but suitable for adult parties).

We were two couples, and so we took turns as couples, i.e. each partner would take turns with the other partner of the couple.

The other couple was a pair of young newlyweds.

(story continued on the next page...)

More ridiculous "truth-or-dare" stories on the next page!

The woman asked her husband if he wanted a truth or a dare, he replied truth. She pulled the top card: "Have you ever paid for sex?"

His answer: "Yes"

Things got very chilly the rest of the night.


16/30. When a guy I didn't know was dared to jack off under a blanket and finish while everyone watched. Everyone watched...


17/30. Friend got dared by his girlfriend to have sex with her in the other room and finish inside her (no birth control). He refused, they broke up, we found out it was a setup she had planned to get herself preggies and force him to marry her.

Strange night.


18/30. Not truth or dare but during a game of Neve Have I Ever my friend said "never have I ever blown a guy" all the girls put down fingers. Said friend looked at my boyfriend and said "uh you have to put a finger down". Turned out my boyfriend cheated on me with a guy. Kicker every single person in the room playing the game knew about it but me.

Awkward silence ensued.


19/30. "Bet you can't jump that ditch". 4 hours later, doctor tells us the guy had dislocated one of shoulders.


20/30. Me, a cousin, and a couple of buddies were at a youth conference in another town. After the conference was over, we got to chatting with a group of girls from the town. We decided to hang out back at our hotel room. We were all just chatting and listening to tunes when all of the sudden, all four girls went to the bathroom together, leaving us sitting there like chumps.

When they came out, they were all grinning. But we thought nothing of it. A few minutes later, one of them proposed a game of truth or dare. But, they insisted, the girls would be the ones to make all the dares. We agreed, hoping for at least some scraps of action.

(story continued on the next page...)

More hilarious and shocking "truth-or-dare" stories on the next page!

Long story short, every single one of us wound up getting laid. One of the guys even did it on the floor, and the other couple fucked in the bathroom. Turns out, the girls had planned it all along. They decided in advance which of them wanted each of us, got their story straight, and then proposed the game. They'd even brought their own condoms.

The only draw back was, God, did it stink in that room when my uncle came strolling in to wake us up the next morning.


21/30. This girl asked her friend to dare someone to have unprotected sex with her. When he received the dare he literally just got up and walked out the house. Then the girl gets drunk, tries it on with a few guys there (to which they all rejected), confessed her love to another guy there, threatened to kill herself, then fell asleep.

This was a few years ago. I saw her a few months back and she looked pretty normal to me. That is pretty and normal, but I will never forget that day.


22/30. I was dared to touch a cow pie (poop pile). Put a finger on it and the person who dared me shoved my entire hand in. Grabbed a handful and flung it at her.


23/30. The moment it turned into a drunk all out orgy.


24/30. A guy stood right at the edge and shat into the swimming pool at the motel we were staying at.


25/30. Probably 20 years old at the time. Girlfriend, her sister and cousin from Germany were in the car. Cousin says let's play and so we all said OK.

All fun and games till we pull over into a McDonald's parking lot and I get dared to walk in and order fries in my underwear. They drove off and I had to borrow the phone to call my gf to make them come back for me. Saw all the tits though, so it was worth it.

26/30. There was a time we were playing truth or dare in a hot tub. A girl friend of ours had dared me to get hard in front of everyone. So I get up out of the tub and start playing with myself. Then from around the corner of the house I get a flashlight in my face.

That was the time I masterbated in front of a police officer.


27/30. Played it with some friends at one of their apartments, before the game we wrote down dares on slips of paper, and on one of the slips I wrote down that you had to strip down to your underwear with your pants around your ankles, wear a blue shirt as a cape, exit the apartment and slowly waddle to the end of the long hallway and back, all while repeatedly saying "gotta go fast." I thought it was bizarre and great

I picked my own dare.


28/30. My friends little brother (9 or 10 years old) came in and dared one of the girls to slit her finger open, put a paperclip into her finger then stick that paperclip into an electrical outlet while it was still in her finger. After we told him no he offered a replacement dare, which was to go down the street and burn down the church.


29/30. Someone had to spin around 50 times, take 10 consecutive shots of tequila, and run into a road.

They actually came out ok.


30/30. They dared me to leave :(


People Reveal The Weirdest Thing About Themselves

Reddit user Isitjustmedownhere asked: 'Give an example; how weird are you really?'

Let's get one thing straight: no one is normal. We're all weird in our own ways, and that is actually normal.

Of course, that doesn't mean we don't all have that one strange trait or quirk that outweighs all the other weirdness we possess.

For me, it's the fact that I'm almost 30 years old, and I still have an imaginary friend. Her name is Sarah, she has red hair and green eyes, and I strongly believe that, since I lived in India when I created her and there were no actual people with red hair around, she was based on Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo.

I also didn't know the name Sarah when I created her, so that came later. I know she's not really there, hence the term 'imaginary friend,' but she's kind of always been around. We all have conversations in our heads; mine are with Sarah. She keeps me on task and efficient.

My mom thinks I'm crazy that I still have an imaginary friend, and writing about her like this makes me think I may actually be crazy, but I don't mind. As I said, we're all weird, and we all have that one trait that outweighs all the other weirdness.

Redditors know this all too well and are eager to share their weird traits.

It all started when Redditor Isitjustmedownhere asked:

"Give an example; how weird are you really?"

Monsters Under My Bed

Can You See Why?

"I bought one of those super-powerful fans to dry a basement carpet. Afterwards, I realized that it can point straight up and that it would be amazing to use on myself post-shower. Now I squeegee my body with my hands, step out of the shower and get blasted by a wide jet of room-temp air. I barely use my towel at all. Wife thinks I'm weird."

– KingBooRadley


"In 1990 when I was 8 years old and bored on a field trip, I saw a black Oldsmobile Cutlass driving down the street on a hot day to where you could see that mirage like distortion from the heat on the road. I took a “snapshot” by blinking my eyes and told myself “I wonder how long I can remember this image” ….well."

– AquamarineCheetah

"Even before smartphones, I always take "snapshots" by blinking my eyes hoping I'll remember every detail so I can draw it when I get home. Unfortunately, I may have taken so much snapshots that I can no longer remember every detail I want to draw."

"Makes me think my "memory is full.""

– Reasonable-Pirate902

Same, Same

– Frostygrunt


"I pace around my house for hours listening to music imagining that I have done all the things I simply lack the brain capacity to do, or in some really bizarre scenarios, I can really get immersed in these imaginations sometimes I don't know if this is some form of schizophrenia or what."

– RandomSharinganUser

"I do the same exact thing, sometimes for hours. When I was young it would be a ridiculous amount of time and many years later it’s sort of trickled off into almost nothing (almost). It’s weird but I just thought it’s how my brain processes sh*t."

– Kolkeia

If Only

"Even as an adult I still think that if you are in a car that goes over a cliff; and right as you are about to hit the ground if you jump up you can avoid the damage and will land safely. I know I'm wrong. You shut up. I'm not crying."

– ShotCompetition2593

Pet Food

"As a kid I would snack on my dog's Milkbones."

– drummerskillit

"Haha, I have a clear memory of myself doing this as well. I was around 3 y/o. Needless to say no one was supervising me."

– Isitjustmedownhere

"When I was younger, one of my responsibilities was to feed the pet fish every day. Instead, I would hide under the futon in the spare bedroom and eat the fish food."

– -GateKeep-

My Favorite Subject

"I'm autistic and have always had a thing for insects. My neurotypical best friend and I used to hang out at this local bar to talk to girls, back in the late 90s. One time he claimed that my tendency to circle conversations back to insects was hurting my game. The next time we went to that bar (with a few other friends), he turned and said sternly "No talking about bugs. Or space, or statistics or other bullsh*t but mainly no bugs." I felt like he was losing his mind over nothing."

"It was summer, the bar had its windows open. Our group hit it off with a group of young ladies, We were all chatting and having a good time. I was talking to one of these girls, my buddy was behind her facing away from me talking to a few other people."

"A cloudless sulphur flies in and lands on little thing that holds coasters."

"Cue Jordan Peele sweating gif."

"The girl notices my tension, and asks if I am looking at the leaf. "Actually, that's a lepidoptera called..." I looked at the back of my friend's head, he wasn't looking, "I mean a butterfly..." I poked it and it spread its wings the girl says "oh that's a BUG?!" and I still remember my friend turning around slowly to look at me with chastisement. The ONE thing he told me not to do."

"I was 21, and was completely not aware that I already had a rep for being an oddball. It got worse from there."

– Phormicidae

*Teeth Chatter*

"I bite ice cream sometimes."


"That's how I am with popsicles. My wife shudders every single time."


Never Speak Of This

"I put ice in my milk."


"You should keep that kind of thing to yourself. Even when asked."

– We-R-Doomed

"There's some disturbing sh*t in this thread, but this one takes the cake."

– Tira13e

"What does it say to you, child?"

– Mama_Skip


"I put mustard on my omelettes."

– Deleted User


– NotCrustOr-filling

Evened Up

"Whenever I say a word and feel like I used a half of my mouth more than the other half, I have to even it out by saying the word again using the other half of my mouth more. If I don't do it correctly, that can go on forever until I feel it's ok."

"I do it silently so I don't creep people out."

– LesPaltaX

"That sounds like a symptom of OCD (I have it myself). Some people with OCD feel like certain actions have to be balanced (like counting or making sure physical movements are even). You should find a therapist who specializes in OCD, because they can help you."

– MoonlightKayla

I totally have the same need for things to be balanced! Guess I'm weird and a little OCD!

Experiencing death is a fascinating and frightening idea.

Who doesn't want to know what is waiting for us on the other side?

But so many of us want to know and then come back and live a little longer.

It would be so great to be sure there is something else.

But the whole dying part is not that great, so we'll have to rely on other people's accounts.

Redditor AlaskaStiletto wanted to hear from everyone who has returned to life, so they asked:

"Redditors who have 'died' and come back to life, what did you see?"


Happy Good Vibes GIF by Major League SoccerGiphy

"My dad's heart stopped when he had a heart attack and he had to be brought back to life. He kept the paper copy of the heart monitor which shows he flatlined. He said he felt an overwhelming sensation of peace, like nothing he had felt before."



"I had surgical complications in 2010 that caused a great deal of blood loss. As a result, I had extremely low blood pressure and could barely stay awake. I remember feeling like I was surrounded by loved ones who had passed. They were in a circle around me and I knew they were there to guide me onwards. I told them I was not ready to go because my kids needed me and I came back."

"My nurse later said she was afraid she’d find me dead every time she came into the room."

"It took months, and blood transfusions, but I recovered."


Take Me Back

"Overwhelming peace and happiness. A bright airy and floating feeling. I live a very stressful life. Imagine finding out the person you have had a crush on reveals they have the same feelings for you and then you win the lotto later that day - that was the feeling I had."

"I never feared death afterward and am relieved when I hear of people dying after suffering from an illness."



The Light Minnie GIF by (G)I-DLEGiphy

"I had a heart surgery with near-death experience, for me at least (well the possibility that those effects are caused by morphine is also there) I just saw black and nothing else but it was warm and I had such inner peace, its weird as I sometimes still think about it and wish this feeling of being so light and free again."


This is why I hate surgery.

You just never know.



"More of a near-death experience. I was electrocuted. I felt like I was in a deep hole looking straight up in the sky. My life flashed before me. Felt sad for my family, but I had a deep sense of peace."



"Nursing in the ICU, we’ve had people try to die on us many times during the years, some successfully. One guy stood out to me. His heart stopped. We called a code, are working on him, and suddenly he comes to. We hadn’t vented him yet, so he was able to talk, and he started screaming, 'Don’t let them take me, don’t let them take me, they are coming,' he was scared and yelling."

"Then he yelled a little more, as we tried to calm him down, he screamed, 'No, No,' and gestured towards the end of the bed, and died again. We didn’t get him back. It was seriously creepy. We called his son to tell him the news, and the son said basically, 'Good, he was an SOB.'”



"My sister died and said it was extremely peaceful. She said it was very loud like a train station and lots of talking and she was stuck in this area that was like a curtain with lots of beautiful colors (colors that you don’t see in real life according to her) a man told her 'He was sorry, but she had to go back as it wasn’t her time.'"


"I had a really similar experience except I was in an endless garden with flowers that were colors I had never seen before. It was quiet and peaceful and a woman in a dress looked at me, shook her head, and just said 'Not yet.' As I was coming back, it was extremely loud, like everyone in the world was trying to talk all at once. It was all very disorienting but it changed my perspective on life!"


The Fog

"I was in a gray fog with a girl who looked a lot like a young version of my grandmother (who was still alive) but dressed like a pioneer in the 1800s she didn't say anything but kept pulling me towards an opening in the wall. I kept refusing to go because I was so tired."

"I finally got tired of her nagging and went and that's when I came to. I had bled out during a c-section and my heart could not beat without blood. They had to deliver the baby and sew up the bleeders. refill me with blood before they could restart my heart so, like, at least 12 minutes gone."


Through the Walls

"My spouse was dead for a couple of minutes one miserable night. She maintains that she saw nothing, but only heard people talking about her like through a wall. The only thing she remembers for absolute certain was begging an ER nurse that she didn't want to die."

"She's quite alive and well today."


Well let's all be happy to be alive.

It seems to be all we have.

Man's waist line

Trying to lose weight is a struggle understood by many people regardless of size.

The goal of reaching a healthy weight may seem unattainable, but with diet and exercise, it can pay off through persistence and discipline.

Seeing the pounds gradually drop off can also be a great motivator and incentivize people to stay the course.

Those who've achieved their respective weight goals shared their experiences when Redditor apprenti8455 asked:

"People who lost a lot of weight, what surprises you the most now?"

Redditors didn't see these coming.

Shiver Me Timbers

"I’m always cold now!"

– Telrom_1

"I had a coworker lose over 130 pounds five or six years ago. I’ve never seen him without a jacket on since."

– r7ndom

"140 lbs lost here starting just before COVID, I feel like that little old lady that's always cold, damn this top comment was on point lmao."

– mr_remy

Drawing Concern

"I lost 100 pounds over a year and a half but since I’m old(70’s) it seems few people comment on it because (I think) they think I’m wasting away from some terminal illness."

– dee-fondy

"Congrats on the weight loss! It’s honestly a real accomplishment 🙂"

"Working in oncology, I can never comment on someone’s weight loss unless I specifically know it was on purpose, regardless of their age. I think it kind of ruffles feathers at times, but like I don’t want to congratulate someone for having cancer or something. It’s a weird place to be in."

– LizardofDeath

Unleashing Insults

"I remember when I lost the first big chunk of weight (around 50 lbs) it was like it gave some people license to talk sh*t about the 'old' me. Old coworkers, friends, made a lot of not just negative, but harsh comments about what I used to look like. One person I met after the big loss saw a picture of me prior and said, 'Wow, we wouldn’t even be friends!'”

"It wasn’t extremely common, but I was a little alarmed by some of the attention. My weight has been up and down since then, but every time I gain a little it gets me a little down thinking about those things people said."

– alanamablamaspama

Not Everything Goes After Losing Weight

"The loose skin is a bit unexpected."

– KeltarCentauri

"I haven’t experienced it myself, but surgery to remove skin takes a long time to recover. Longer than bariatric surgery and usually isn’t covered by insurance unless you have both."

– KatMagic1977

"It definitely does take a long time to recover. My Dad dropped a little over 200 pounds a few years back and decided to go through with skin removal surgery to deal with the excess. His procedure was extensive, as in he had skin taken from just about every part of his body excluding his head, and he went through hell for weeks in recovery, and he was bedridden for a lot of it."

– Jaew96

These Redditors shared their pleasantly surprising experiences.


"I can buy clothes in any store I want."

– WaySavvyD

"When I lost weight I was dying to go find cute, smaller clothes and I really struggled. As someone who had always been restricted to one or two stores that catered to plus-sized clothing, a full mall of shops with items in my size was daunting. Too many options and not enough knowledge of brands that were good vs cheap. I usually went home pretty frustrated."

– ganache98012

No More Symptoms

"Lost about 80 pounds in the past year and a half, biggest thing that I’ve noticed that I haven’t seen mentioned on here yet is my acid reflux and heartburn are basically gone. I used to be popping tums every couple hours and now they just sit in the medicine cabinet collecting dust."

– colleennicole93

Expanding Capabilities

"I'm all for not judging people by their appearance and I recognise that there are unhealthy, unachievable beauty standards, but one thing that is undeniable is that I can just do stuff now. Just stamina and flexibility alone are worth it, appearance is tertiary at best."

– Ramblonius

People Change Their Tune

"How much nicer people are to you."

"My feet weren't 'wide' they were 'fat.'"

– LiZZygsu

"Have to agree. Lost 220 lbs, people make eye contact and hold open doors and stuff"

"And on the foot thing, I also lost a full shoe size numerically and also wear regular width now 😅"

– awholedamngarden

It's gonna take some getting used to.

Bones Everywhere

"Having bones. Collarbones, wrist bones, knee bones, hip bones, ribs. I have so many bones sticking out everywhere and it’s weird as hell."

– Princess-Pancake-97

"I noticed the shadow of my ribs the other day and it threw me, there’s a whole skeleton in here."

– bekastrange

Knee Pillow

"Right?! And they’re so … pointy! Now I get why people sleep with pillows between their legs - the knee bones laying on top of each other (side sleeper here) is weird and jarring."

– snic2030

"I lost only 40 pounds within the last year or so. I’m struggling to relate to most of these comments as I feel like I just 'slimmed down' rather than dropped a ton. But wow, the pillow between the knees at night. YES! I can relate to this. I think a lot of my weight was in my thighs. I never needed to do this up until recently."

– Strongbad23

More Mobility

"I’ve lost 100 lbs since 2020. It’s a collection of little things that surprise me. For at least 10 years I couldn’t put on socks, or tie my shoes. I couldn’t bend over and pick something up. I couldn’t climb a ladder to fix something. Simple things like that I can do now that fascinate me."

"Edit: Some additional little things are sitting in a chair with arms, sitting in a booth in a restaurant, being able to shop in a normal store AND not needing to buy the biggest size there, being able to easily wipe my butt, and looking down and being able to see my penis."

– dma1965

People making significant changes, whether for mental or physical health, can surely find a newfound perspective on life.

But they can also discover different issues they never saw coming.

That being said, overcoming any challenge in life is laudable, especially if it leads to gaining confidence and ditching insecurities.
