Women Confess The Weirdest Things Men Wanted From Them


Once, in a bookstore when I was about 15, a man asked me to stand on his hand. Said his doctor recommended it for a medical condition. I was wearing pants, this was a totally normal looking grown man… I said “sorry, no” and walked away quickly.


When I was waitressing, someone offered to pay me for photos of me with my mouth open, and also photos of the inside of my mouth because his fetish was to be shrunken down and swallowed whole. I considered it, since it didn’t seem sexual to me, but ultimately decided against it. Did get to talk to him about his fetish after declining though, and he was really open and non-creepy and it was pretty fascinating.


At the end of a second date that involved bike riding, my date was helping me bring in my bike into my apartment. He paused for a second in my living room, looked at my coffee table, and said, “Can I have that?” What?! This guy just asked for my coffee table that I was currently using as if it was the most normal thing to do. There was no third date.
