People Divulge Which Seemingly Normal Things Are Sexualized For No Reason

Sometimes we just can't help ourselves, can we?

We see sex everywhere.

It's astonishing.

Maybe it's because we've just been inundated with it. Sex. Sex. Sex.

Thanks, Madonna.

I think there are some things we need to take a long, hard look at and then question our mindset.

Now get your minds out of the gutter.

"What completely normal thing is sexualized for literally no reason at all?"

Sponge bath time...

"Nurses. I’ve been a nurse and worked in a hospital for 15+ years. There is nothing sexy happening."

"Saying ‘daddy’ I said it when I was 12 once to my dad and my friends tormented me over it for the entire month."

"I hate this so much. I always called my dad 'daddy' and even though he passed away 8 years ago I still refer to him that way. If using daddy in the bedroom is someone’s thing fine I don’t care that’s their business but please stop sexualizing it or saying it’s weird. My mom and her siblings are all in their sixties and still refer to their father as 'Daddy' and he’s been dead for over twenty years... lol."

"I am amazed by how often it happens. Have seen dozens of documentaries about it happening, thank goodness there is usually a (step) family member around to help out."

That popsicle thing, that really can be a bit much. Depends on the flavor though.

Just a Mention

"Mentioning you have a friend of the opposite sex to your parents."

JerzGelato

"This is why I always lie and say that the guy friend I was talking to earlier is a girl. Every time I mention it's a guy, they always go 'Ooh, do you like him?' or 'He must like you if you talk so much.' Like, bruh, no we don't like each other. For starters, that guy is gay AF, those two have girlfriends, that guy wants to become a priest, and the other guy just straight up hates me."

Get Dressed

"School uniforms. Any uniforms, really, but especially school uniforms."

"EvenSpoonierOnly Japanese or Catholic school uniforms though. My school uniform was khakis and a collared shirt, so unless Jake from state farm gets your rocks off, you probably mean Japanese or Catholic schools."

LordNikoli

"I never understood when women (mainly in TV and movies but irl too) would practically melt when they see a man in a uniform, even if it's a postman or something. Am I the odd one for not seeing the appeal?"

"Children’s 'Beauty Pageants'... No, No , No. Not right at all, on ANY level. These should be banned, with NO question !!!! Just... NO !!!"

BadStitch626

"I'm an ex-military, big scary-looking old fart, but the feeling those pageants give me can be best summarised as 'icky'. Looking at the people involved gives me the heebie-jeebies."

Salty_Paroxysm

Title says 'completely normal thing' and I'm gonna be honest I've never seen or heard of a children's beauty pageant that I would describe as 'normal.'"

The Scandal

"Visible shoulders (???)"

WitheredFlowers

"I can wear normal sleeved shirts and tank tops no problem, but I feel so scandalous when I wear those shirts with holes where the shoulders are."

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.
