    not really. but how did you feel about that?

    women talking about their periods. men mentioning their sweaty ballsacks. somebody saying they feel gassy. lol.

    are you squeamish about these kinds of topics?

    I thought you were warning us, in the event of any angry posts in the near future.

    Doesn't make me uncomfortable, but I find talking about such subjects are less than professional.

    Not much, but I wouldn't think highly of it either.

    It makes me laugh when kids talk about it despite people requesting them to stop. My little bro always ups his nasty descriptions when someone gets disgusted with him. He giggles as he gets a rise of them. More often than not he gets his ass handed to him as a result lol.

    I don't mind talking about exclusively feminine stuff, but depending on the particular subject, I may feel less comfortable talking about it in front of men. But yeah, men talking about their genitalia in front of me would make me uncomfortable.

    Last time it happened, he was describing in detail how a friend of his in class almost drowned in his own vomit. My mom wasn't very excited about it.

    I thought, "What is she thinking making a thread about that?!" This place is so casual that people mention that in posts and I understand that. But some things are supposed to be private.

    tbh i'm an adult and i have done this lol. not in mixed company, but with closer people. it can be kind of a testing thing. like if somebody can't man up enough to hear about my period then how could that person be trusted to deal with more disturbing and delicate subjects that might come up? when people are squeamish about it, i'm put off because it makes them seem like a wimpy person. it might not be entirely rational, but thats how i feel about it.

    but then my mom went to nursing school and i was brought up with it instilled that body functions are normal and that people should be comfortable around them because its necessary in order to care for people. so its part of my value system that people shouldn't act like these natural things are taboo.

    Back to OP. I don't mind it in private between two people but running around yelling "hey, my cunt is dripping" is somewhat off-putting, not to mention fucked up.

    I would say, get a facking tampoo, cunt.

    i have a pretty much infinite tolerance to it and there isn't anything that bothers or "shocks" me, but i don't generally relate to it when people talk about such topics as if they're really exciting in their own right or something.

    I never thought of it that way. Interesting.

    Sometimes it gets out of hand though. One of my cousins likes to fart in the presence of others. In fact he prefers it. He has no shame. He basically does the whole demonstration. From getting your attention, to directing his butt towards you, etc.

    I cannot stand him.

    I have more of these stories if anyone is interested.

    yeah, ikwym.

    i think theres sort of this thing though. like i have a family member who hears the word "gay" on tv and starts going off about ITS EVERYWHERE WITH THEIR PARADES AND IN THE SCHOOLS AND THE CHILDREN ARE GETTING GAY PENISES RUBBED ON THEIR FACES OMG and i think the same sort of thing can happen when people mention body functions lol.

    sometimes it just comes up, whatever. but fart jokes are usually boring.

    It doesn't upset me but it doesn't awaken my attention either, unless it's tied to drastic changes in mood or potential medical complications.

    I've never once been in a conversation with a guy who brought up how sweaty his sac was. I'd probably laugh it off but squirm a little inside. Women talking about their periods does nothing to me.

    I have been in a conversation with a girl who tried to bed me by describing her supposed rape experience. I was entertained.

    We were 12 years old. I ended up telling everybody. True story.

    Well I don't know that I love the fact that my mother posted the results of her colonoscopy on Facebook. I mean hey, we're glad you're "all clear for another 10 years" but... I dunno, just keep it to yourself!

    Tell me about it. That was my first time meeting her as well. They were my friends' neighbours. I actually spent quite a while with her, like an hour or so. We took a stroll around their neighborhood while she went on with her story. She put her arms around mine. Quite a bold girl. I was truly in love.. until she brought up that story.

    yikes.

    yeah, in general I think this maybe isn't type related but I bet S types have an easier time talking about it than Ns. Just a guess. In my house you didn't talk about ANY of that. Not sex or bodies or anything. Only in whispers, as necessary. lol But that was the 70s/80s in the midwest US.

    by Gloria Steinem (written during the 1970s)

    Since history was recorded, male human beings have built whole cultures around the idea that penis-envy is "natural" to women - though having such an unprotected organ might be said to make men more vulnerable, and the power to give birth makes womb-envy at least logical. In short, logic has nothing to do with it. What would happen, for instance, if suddenly, magically, men could menstruate and women could not? The answer is clear - menstruation would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event:

    Men would brag about how long and how much.

    Boys would mark the onset of menses, that longed-for proof of manhood, with religious ritual and stag parties.

    The US Congress would fund a National Institute of Dysmenorrhea to help stamp out monthly discomforts.

    Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. (Of course, some men would still pay for the prestige of commercial brands such as John Wayne Tampons, Muhammed Ali's Rope-a-dope Pads, Joe Namath Jock Shields - "For Those Light Bachelor Days," and Robert "Baretta" Blake Maxi-Pads.)

    Military men, right-wing politicians, and religious fundamentalists would cite menstruation ("MENstruation") as proof that only men could serve in the army ("You have to give blood to take blood"), occupy political office ("Can women be aggresive without that steadfast cycle governed by the planet Mars?"), be priests and ministers ("how could a woman give her blood for our sins"), or rabbis ("Without the monthly loss of impurities, women remain unclean").

    Male radicals, left-wing politicians, and mystics, however, would insist that women are equal, just different; and that any woman could enter their ranks if only she were willing to self-inflict a major wound every month ("You must give blood for the revolution"), recognize the preeminence of menstrual issues, or subordinate her selfness to all men in their Cycle of Enlightenment.

    Street guys would brag ("I'm a three-pad man") or answer praise from a buddy (" Man, you are lookin' good") by giving fives and saying, "Yeah, man, I'm on the rag!"

    TV shows would treat the subject at length. ("Happy Days": Richie and Potsie try to convince Fonzie that he is still "The Fonz," though he has missed two periods in a row.)

    So would newspapers. (JUDGE CITES MONTHLY STRESS IN PARDONING RAPIST.)

    And movies. (Newman and Redford in "Blood Brothers"!)

    Men would convince women that intercourse was more pleasurable at "that time of the month." Lesbians would be said to fear blood and therefore life itself - though probably only because they needed a good menstruating man.

    Of course, male intellectuals would offer the most moral and logical arguements. How could a woman master any discipline that demanded a sense of time, space, mathematics, or measurement, for instance, without that in-built gift for measuring the cycles of the moon and planets - and thus for measuring anything at all? In the rarefied fields of philosophy and religion, could women compensate for missing the rhythm of the universe? Or for their lack of symbolic death-and-resurrection every month?
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
    -Mark Twain


    You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.

    Nope. It's a part of life though I suppose among formal company or mostly strangers, it would be pretty strange.

    I'm not squeamish; I'll say it if I feel really bad though and not just any time. I mostly say it because I want the person to get the hint and give me a hug, tea, kiss, food, sex, whatever.

    For me, the only uncomfortable thing about talking about poop, blood, bodily functions etc. is worrying about other people judging me for it... also when I'm eating, or if I have to look at really graphic pictures/videos/descriptions.

    I have absolutely no problem when people talk about that stuff. I've also been told by a few people that I can talk about those sorts of things without making them seem awkward.

    I can enjoy discussing such things, but I won't initiate the conversation unless I'm sure the other person is fine with it and doesn't feel uncomfortable or judge me etc. Talk on a general level, sharing my feelings/past experiences, joking etc are no problem, but when I happen to be on my period I don't usually mention that to anyone unless I have to (if the pain gets intolerable or the pms is making me a jerk) or they specifically ask. It feels unnecessary and many men seem to get a little uncomfortable so I don't want to bother them. There are also some small things that I feel are too personal to share with others comfortably, but I don't mind if others tell similar things to me, it can actually be relieving if something has been bothering me.

    I think it's funny. Women on their periods is kind of cute too, but they always seem to get mad at me for it. I think it turns me on, as well, to be reminded of their femininity so much.

    Why exactly do women seem to be surprised by this? Am I supposed to be grossed out by it?

    @OP, I don't mind I guess, unless I'm eating. I start to imagine eating the thing being talked about.

    ah that sucks

    if it makes you feel any better, I will sometimes get cramps so bad that they will make me faint, vomit or break out into a fever. Also, the week before my cycle comes I become incredibly depressed, to the point of where I'll think of suicide from time to time.

    I just started on birth control, and I've noticed that it's balanced out my mood wonderfully so far. The only issue with this is that my sex drive is noticeably lower & I'm somewhat less attracted to my bf... needless to say, he wants me to get off of them immediately.

    You know what's kind of funny? How when people are eating food, it's going to turn into poop. They are eating poop that hasn't been refined yet. 0.o And even as they are eating, their body is turning what they have already eaten into poop, AS THEY EAT. It's kind of gross to think about. And then you hear someone's guts making little noises and it's the noises of poop being sloshed around in the body.

    I hope this was educational.
