Why can't people eat bananas or cucumbers without having someone make a comment?

Okay, we get it, men have been said to think with their um... phalluses and many societies seem to have a preoccupation with the phallus in general. Take a look at some statues and monuments.

But that's not the only thing out there that's been sexualized – far from it. It's just the most obvious. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Artane_33 asked the online community,

"What’s sexualized but shouldn’t or doesn’t need to be?"

"It gets in the way..."

"I need to run my fingers through my hair sometimes. It gets in the way, it blows around, whatever. IT'S NOT FLIRTING BRO MY HAIR IS JUST PISSING ME OFF AND IM TRYNA MOVE IT OUT MY FACE."

So when I was playing with my hair in class, you mean to say I wasn't flirting at all?!

"If anyone stares..."

"If anyone stares I attempt to make eating my banana as sexual as possible while maintaining eye contact."

Ah, yes... a power move. I see you too are a person of culture.

"Getting stuck..."

"Getting stuck in places."

"I just wanna..."

"Hot dogs. I just wanna peacefully eat a glizzy in public without feeling weird."

Where are you from that they call hot dogs glizzies?

"Everything..."

"Everything father-daughter related."

Probably one of the most popular porn categories, too.

"Don't forget..."

"Don't forget eggplants!"

Or carrots! It's just a root, people!

"Maybe it's just me..."

"The word "come" in normal sentences. Maybe it's just me, I try not to use it much in sentences, shifted to arrive or reached."

"Oh good heavens, I'm arriving!"

Is that better?

No?

Okay.

"The green..."

"The green M&M…"

Don't remind us. Fox News dedicated quite some time to this recently.

"I just want to say..."

"I just want to say the number 69 without being embarrassed."

But you can't, okay? You can't.

Thank you, society...

"Practically..."

"Practically everything at this point."

This comment is looking pretty sexy...

Face it – just about everything has been sexualized. We live in a society that runs on sex... and money. Especially the latter. Imagine what happens when you combine the two.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
