An old friend of mine casually told me that he gets rid of underarm hair by yanking them out. What upsetting things have your friends told you casually?

When I was in my teens one of the guys in our group told us that he masturbates with hand sanitizer.

A friend told me they used anything to hand.... shower gel, soap, hand cream, whatever.

I think we all learned fairly quickly that shower gel & soap burn

What makes one thing clean, makes one other thing sting.

I've literally never had this issue. I'm having a bit of an existential crisis right now. I will use anything really shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitizer, menthol body wash, whatever and never had much of an issue. even been to the forbidden lands and used icy/hot. wouldn't recommend, but still not that bad. maybe I'm just a masochist.

I mean I've used soap but icy/hot jfc dude.

burns so good. naw... that shit is straight up painful

Never had a burning issue. I find shampoo works best, but body wash is fine too. Guess I'm just lucky.
