1. "It’s rare that a man catches my eye. But one time, I was in the mall, and I saw a guy who was perfect. Typically, I’m aggressive and overly confident, but I tried to scope him out first. So after hiding behind kiosks (several in a sequence), I lost sight of ‘my man.’ I turned around, and he was standing there and says, 'Hi, I’m _____.’ I was mortified. He saw me track him for, like, five kiosks straight!”- Arille C., 26.
2. “I went on a date with my boyfriend at the time, wearing a cute little romper. He asked me how I peed in it, and I explained that girls just take it off every time. He asked why I didn’t just pull it to the side...so later, I tried, and I ended up pooping my pants in the Museum of Sex.”- Larisa K., 23.
3. I was playing with a girl’s nipple piercing with my tongue, and it came undone - I didn’t find it until months later under my bed.” - Alex L., 21.
4. “Last summer, I went to the beach and wanted to show off with a back-handspring. At some point, my tampon string came out of my bathing suit. During my ‘performance,’ someone yelled, ‘I think you have some toilet paper in your bottoms.’ I told them it was just the string to my bikini. I went to prove it, and it turns out that it was actually my tampon.” -Jessica D., 17.
5. “I spent an entire class stalking my crush on social media to find the perfect pictures to share with my friends. Later that night, I was invited to a pregame with him, and as I went to show him something on my phone, my Facebook app opened to his profile. He saw how far back in his photos I’d been digging. I had no choice but to just admit what I did. It was totally awkward, but at least he knew how I felt!”- Jade D., 21.

9. My first girlfriend gave me a Cosmo article that was about tips for cunnilingus. She was not very subtle about the hint. But I learned a lot. I still have it!” - Carter Jenkins, Famous in Love
10. “One night, my girls and I were out and hanging with some older guys who were so hot. At the end of the night, we took a shot of Fireball, and I immediately ducked down and threw up on one of the guys’ coats. No one saw. He ended up dating my friend and still talks about how he got his jacket cleaned that weekend because ‘some girl’ threw up on it. Oops.” -Hannah K., 23.
11. “I was hooking up with a dude in his basement, and we thought his parents were out of town. They came back early, but we didn’t hear them. They walked down the stairs, and I threw a blanket on. His parents sat down and turned on a movie with us - Wolf of Wall Street, which is three hours! I sat naked under a blanket on his couch for three hours. And I had to pee the whole time.” -Haley B., 22.
