At this point in time, men and women understand each other better than any other time in history. We’ve had centuries of experience, literature, movies, and more to show our differences, so that empathy and understanding can be achieved. That being said, there are still aspects of living day-to-day in the body and mind of a man that the fairer sex still may not be aware. We’ve listed here a few of the best ones, shared in this Reddit post, below.
Unless you’re actively going for it, boners are more of an itch than anything else, and masturbation is the scratch.
How extra careful you have to be so you do not scare some people, especially small children and women.
PLEASURES AND DANGERS
Unsticking your balls from the side of your thigh on a hot day. Also the dangers of accidentally crushing them if you sit at a weird angle or shift around in your seat.
I CALL THIS “THE OPEN JAR POLICY”
If you’re a guy who is not old or decrepit, you could be called upon randomly at anytime to carry something heavy. Also, if you are 6 feet or more, old ladies will ask you to reach stuff for them.
SAD, BUT TRUE
Many men can go many years with the certainty that no woman is thinking of them romantically and many even with open disgust. I mean it’s not absolutely terrible because most men I think learn to just dull out how depressing it really is and many of them have extremely fulfilling male friendships.
WON’T EVEN MENTION PUBIC HAIR
Chest hair is super good for lathering soap.
LIFE IN THE GUTTER
The constant sexual deviancy we must bury deep inside. Louis CK summed this up nicely. “Women are like, ‘We’ll I’m a pervert too, you don’t know.’ No, you have no idea. You have no idea. You’re a tourist in sexual perversion, I’m a prisoner there…You get to have those thoughts, I HAVE to have them.”
NOTHING MEANS NOTHING
There is a nothing box, it does exist, and when I’m driving home from work or watching TV, I’m really genuinely thinking about nothing. Also, we don’t mean more than we say. There is no secret meaning hidden in every sentence. It means what it says, nothing else.
Being complimented, for any reason, is weird. Men don’t get compliments as frequently as women do. And when we actually are complimented, we believe there might be malice or sarcasm within a compliment where none exist - simply because of the infrequency of it.
NOT ALL MEN
That when I take my nephews out to the park, I get looks from women that are the "He is a sexual predator.” I have had police come up to me twice because women thought I was there planning on stealing someone’s kid even though I was there with my nephews. Another time, I was walking with my nephews and a woman came up to me, looked at them and said “Do you know this man” they said yes and she said “Are you sure, he didn’t take you or is hurting you is he”. This is something that I have heard other guys deal with too, not just myself.
ALL MY FRIENDS ARE LOSERS
Banter. I think one thing some women don’t understand is that guys talk shit and mock each other constantly. If you don’t understand how Josh could be friends with someone who is so mean, then that is Josh’s best friend.
Sometimes when peeing, the stream starts off at an angle and misses the toilet, plus we can drip. It’s not our fault ladies, sometimes a drip or two gets on the floor!
Man has never wanted to get up from their show/video games/book to help carry groceries into the house, so he has evolved so that he is able to carry EVERYTHING from the car in one trip.
THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD
The satisfaction of peeing a skid mark off the side of the toilet.
