I have absolutely no clue what to do about this and I need help. Yes, this is as gross as it sounds. My parents go to bed pretty early, at least compared to me. The issue is that our house is kinda creaky and sound travels pretty easily. Whether I’m downstairs, in my room, or in some other area of the house, it’s pretty easy to hear the insistent creaking of the bed and floorboards and the awkward grunts and moans. It’s not like they have it every night, and sometimes not even every week, but I think it’s making me go crazy. My brother has to be able to hear it too, so we’re both suffering through this. Hearing your parents somewhat loudly bang is about the second most awkward thing in the world. The most awkward thing however, would be telling them I can and to quiet down. I have absolutely no idea how, or if I even should, go about telling them. Part of me thinks that it’s not even worth telling because it’s not like they can stop floorboards from creaking. The other part of me would pay and sum of money to never hear them do it again. Please give me advice on if I should tell them. If you think I should, please tell me how I should. It just feels like there’s no right answer here, so I need some other opinions.
I'm wondering if anyone has the video of her saying it as I'm not sure how to video capture Twitch streams, but it's disgusting how they treated that poor woman. She seemed very uncomfortable talking about it.
Edge, Cena, a lot of the guys in the back and Lita herself tried stopping the segment from happening but Vince liked it so it went ahead.
Lita said that they threatened to fire her when she said she was uncomfortable with doing it, which is why she did it. It was the reason she decided to leave the company soon after, and she got buried when she left because of it.
My boyfriend invited me over for the weekend. Usually when we hang out, sex is the exciting part, as we’ve only been dating for 5 months. I’ve never stayed over at his place and not had sex, most often twice a day. But I’m on my period this weekend, and also dealing with a cut on my labia which got infected and is taking forever to heal. I don’t want to have sex, but I want his company. Do I tell him before I go? Or when I’m at his place? Am I rude for saying no but staying the whole weekend?
Is that too hard to ask? Every date I’ve been on there was always the need for either a kiss or sex and that’s not what I’m looking for. Maybe I’m just old fashioned but I want to save those moments for when I’m actually into the person and have it be a special moment or have it feel right. I’m not trying to bash the people who do want a kiss or have sex on the first date but that just isn’t for me. I feel like I’m never going to meet someone who feels the same way. Anyways that’s my little rant for today. Also just wondering if there are people like me that think this way or not.
My friends and I have been discussing this for fun.
In my experience, either men have gone down on me our first time hooking up and that’s been consistent throughout our whole relationship and there are men who never go down the entirety of the relationship.
What I’ve been concluding is that if a man does not go down on you within the first 1-3 hookups, he most likely won’t go down on you later in the relationship.
What are your thoughts or experiences with this?
This assumes the bread is consecrated, as in the eucharist. As I see it, if Catholics believe that:
Sex within marriage is allowed, but outside of marriage is sinful; Nuns are married to Christ; The eucharist transubstantiates into the literal body of Christ;
then it follows that they should be able to have sex with said bread.
The only possible counterexample I can think of is that procreation is impossible via sex with bread, but, from some Googling, it appears that Catholics are still able to have sex within marriage after conception is no longer possible (i.e., post-menopause) as long as they do not actively try and prevent conception (source here). I can't imagine an objection based on non-monogamy given the inherent non-monogamy of all nuns being married to Christ.
Please change my view, this thought is haunting me.
I genuinely believe that infidelity and breakup/divorce rates would sky rocket.
Edit: WOW! I did not expect this to blow up, like it has! Thank you, for the awards and for all of the comments! I love reading through all of the conversations in the replies.
The only thing that I'd like to point out: Contraception. A lot of people are asking about protection. Protection is amazing. It is wonderful. Everyone should find a method that works for them and their body type, and use it... However... Not a single method on the market is 100% successful. There is always a chance that it will fail. And, for those failures, abortion should always be a safe and easily accessible option.
I can't believe she lied to me, not once, but twice.
Like really buddy?? She hates sex? Maybe she's just not satisfied in bed.. Maybe she just really doesn't like what you're doing.. have you ever thought about that?
Sometimes its hard to tell our partners when they're not fulfilling our needs. But its more annoying for the random girl you're going to send a sad dick pic to with the caption "ugh! My girlfriend hates sex, I only have sex like once a month!" Just for a pity response back.
Edit: hey im not doggin on anyone who has a low libido or a high libido, whatever comes naturally just does.
2nd edit: Its not about the dic pic, its about the comment digging for pity for not having sex. Including a pic is just the cherry on top. Its about involving a third person to your intimate issues that they didn't ask for.
Sorry for the over generalized post. But this is specific to just this type of behavior.
Edit 3: now people who are private messaging me about their sex lives, why do that? Also, there's no need to be rude in the comments...
Thanks for all the awards! I didn't expect this post to get so much attention at all whether it be good or bad! 😏
Go ahead, send me to horny jail. I didn't buy this game to fuck every moving thing possible, but damn it if this isn't the driest mature game I've played despite sporting some of the best rendered anatomy I've ever seen. Even Witcher 3, with a tiny smattering of brothels, had 15+ escorts. Night City by comparison is completely vapid and vacant of any meaningful sexual content, despite being thematically one of the most sexual places known to man. TWO JOYTOYS are optional in the whole city. BDs were a fascinating addition but are totally absent outside of plot points. What the hell happened??
Edit: fellas I bonked myself already, no reason to be so hostile. Also no reason for projection or hypocrisy about sexual content, you enjoy it too you choombas.
Edit: Tagged NSFW just in case.
I haven't thought about this story for a long time, but I thought it belonged here. At the time, I didn't really see how bad it was but over a decade later I look back and cringe. I was about 13-15, when this happened; it's been a while so I'm not sure. Point being, I was young. My dad, brother, and I would often go play games at our local game store.
The short version is that we were fighting a dragon, and it was not going well. The rest of the party was down and my character was hiding, hoping the dragon would think I died and move on. The DM didn't want to TPK the party so he thought for a moment and had the dragon stop and land in the area where I was hiding.
He then made my character a deal "Spend some time with me and I'll let you and your friends live." As you might guess, "spend some time with me" = sex. The reasoning, according to the DM, was that because I was a sorcerer (high Cha and magical blood), the dragon would be intrigued by me. I tried to make an argument for running away or offering something else, but nope, that was the deal. Have sex with the dragon or die. I looked visibly uncomfortable, but felt like I couldn't say anything more so I agreed. The one good thing was the DM didn't do any kind of detail describing the scene. They did a fade to black and we were alive and safe. The game ended about an hour after that.
Now, some of you might be wondering "where the hell was your dad in all this?"
My dad was the DM.
Edit 1: The son comments are pretty amusing. I'm his daughter :)
Edit 2: Woah, I'm blown away by all these comments. I'll respond to them all when I can!
Edit 3: Thank you so much internet stranger for the silver! Jesus...um, I will really try to reply to everyone. For the couple people who asked if I was sure that he meant sex, yes he was explicit that that is what the dragon wanted to avoid a TPK. When I asked for a different option (like running away or offering something else), he told me no. It really was sex or death. He just didn't go into the details beyond "he takes you into the temple".
My neighbors upstairs have very... Vigorous sex. That's fine, you do you honey. My issue is that we live in an old block and I can hear everything. I have worn headphones in the past and just sucked it up because we're in lockdowns and we all gotta get along and who am I to dampen their fun. They don't block completely and to do so they have to be uncomfortably loud.
Recently because I wear my headphones all day for meetings and I have a headache from them pinching, I've just started playing music on my speaker instead - I turn it up to 50% and while it doesn't drown this out, it helps instead of hearing those bed springs and moans etc etc. Lately they've been doing it a lot - what else you gonna do in lockdown amirite? I have other noise issues with them (they play music all day and very loud to the point my work meetings are a bit painful for people meeting me as the noise carries) too but assume it goes both ways and I am really not trying to cause issues with them. My neighbor knocked earlier today and said that they'd appreciate if I can keep my music down. I only play it on speaker when they're having sex, and said it was only at that level for my own comfort as otherwise I can hear everything and I feel like it gives me some space and them some level of privacy - as much as I can provide short of leaving the building.
He got a bit heated about it saying that it was an issue and said I was a bitch. I said it was reasonable to ask but that they need to respect that I live here too and I've been very accommodating in terms of noise levels.
AITA for playing music when they're doing their thing?
Edit: formatting (sorry on phone)
The obvious pick here comes from one Justin Beiber with just all of yummy but i have another one that bothers me to no end that i see on a handful of occasions. Grown adults need to stop saying boomboom in reference to sex. They immediately sound like children trying to sound older than they are who dont even understand the concept of sex when they say this. This song is the most egregious example i can think of in this regard but in sure more exist: boom boom room by wolftyla An otherwise great song ruined for me by that extremely childish lyric lol.
Do you guys have any more examples like this? Curious to hear what else you guys have heard!
My girlfriend and I have been dating for about 10 months now. We’ve had a good relationship for the most part. I’ve had the chance to celebrate her birth with her. I got her a lot of stuff and planned a night out for us. This is the first time that she has celebrated my birthday for me. I’m not someone who requires a lot of presents, but I do like some thought to be shown at least. I didn’t know what I expected her to get me. When she asked about stuff I hinted to some things I needed. All were cheap and inexpensive. She asked me a few times about what all I usually like to do for my birthday. I figured I’d at least get that and maybe a dinner or something.
I got home from work that evening and was expecting to be waiting on presents or something of that sort. Instead I walked in to her naked. I was actually excited as I obviously do enjoy having sex with her, and I thought this was just the start of the night. Well afterwards I asked what we were going to do about food. She said she hadn’t planned that, but that she wanted a salad. It was obvious she didn’t plan that part out. I tried to remain silent about presents and asking about stuff because I didn’t want to seem needy or entitled. Finally it was time to go to sleep that night and nothing happened. She finally asked, “well was that everything you wanted? Was it a successful birthday?”
I didn’t want to lie so I told her that I was a little disappointed. I explained that the sex was great but that I felt a little sad because there was nothing else. She looked at me with a surprised look on her face. She said “are you kidding me? I thought all guys would die for that in their birthday?” She said that all guys in previous relationships have loved it as a present. She said that l must be crazy. She said that she thought about getting something else but figured this would be better. I said that I loved having it for a present but I thought she would at least put in a little more thought or give me a card or something. She scoffed at me and got out of bed. She said she was going home and for me to call her when I wasn’t acting like a spoiled little kid. Should I apologize for reacting that way? What should I do?
TL;DR - my only present for my birthday from my girlfriend was sex. She got mad at me when I told her that I expected more things.
I (female) was in a sexless marriage and got divorced. Through therapy I’ve learned that I really do value sex and physical intimacy in a relationship.
I went on a date a few months ago and really hit it off with this guy. The sex was amazing and we had a lot in common. We went on about 6 more dates and then he said he wasn’t interested in a serious relationship and stopped contacting me.
I was shocked! Everything was going well. Why would he just end it!?
My friends have said that he probably didn’t respect me because we slept together on the first date. As in maybe he thought this was more of a FWB situation.
So I want to know: Does having sex on the first date really change your opinion of someone?
Sex is important to me! I don’t really want to waste my time with someone who isn’t willing/able to satisfy me. What do you guys think?
Hello I haven't posted to reddit before so I'm sorry if this is jumbled.
My ex and I's entire relationship was a bit of a young mistake. After our son was born, we both basically agreed we weren't meant for each other and broke up on very friendly terms. He is engaged to a very lovely trans woman named Alicia who I would say I'm friends with as well.
Our son is still very young and had an issue with his heart. He had to have another surgery last year, and I barely make enough money to support us and could not afford another one on my own. My ex chipped in for the last surgery and also does not have much money.
He told me he forgot about some investments he made and suddenly had enough money to pay for the surgery. I didn't ask him about it because I was overjoyed and thought it was a miracle. We had to have a pre-surgery consultation with the doctor and while we were waiting he admitted to me that the "investment money" came from Alicia's gender confirmation fund that the two of them were saving up for. He said that he knew Alicia was going to be heartbroken when he told her, but apparently he made up for about half of the money and he'd taken less than half, so he thought it was only fair.
I had the opportunity to tell him not to, but I was under so much stress and concerned way more about our son's health that in that moment I didn't really care about Alicia. Our son's surgery went off without a hitch and he's going to have a very long life.
He and Alicia are still together, but Alicia is now cold to me and obviously does not like me. I understand why and I feel very guilty. AITA?
EDIT: I didn't know sex reassignment surgery was an offensive term. I'm sorry. I can't change the post title but I'll change other references.
EDIT 2: I called Alicia and apologized profusely again. She said she's glad the money was used to help my son, she just wishes my ex would have asked...she also said she didn't mean to be short with me, she's just disappointed about the situation and has been a bit depressed.
