    Men Are Asking Women Detailed Questions They're Too Intimidated To Ask IRL, And Women Are Answering In Vulnerable Ways

    "Why do women have them everywhere? I get having one or two. But I've seen women with five or more."

    I'm a curious person, so when I came across this Reddit thread where u/ThePlague_Doct0r asked, "Men of Reddit, what are some questions you’ve always wanted to ask women but couldn’t because it would seem weird?" I couldn't stop scrolling through the thread.

    Not only were some of the questions pretty surprising, but a lot of women answered them very honestly. Here's some of what the men asked and what women answered:

    1. "When you're using the bathroom and you see your pad is slightly soiled, does it feel awkward having to put it back against your body?"

    2. "What kind of common behavior makes a guy seem creepy or unattractive?"
