10 embarrassing things all women do. (But we never admit to.)

Us women are more disgusting than we tell our friends… here are embarrassing things all women do but will never admit to.

1. We rarely wash our bras

And by rarely, I mean never. We assume they just don’t get dirty and then wear the same one day after day. Even if we have a whole drawer full of bras, we probably only wear a few of our favourites. We don’t want them get ruined in the wash.

2. We pick our noses

Women do this probably much more than you think. Especially in the car…or really anywhere when there isn’t a tissue handy. I mean, who’s going to get up and get a tissue when I can’t just get in there and take care of things? Ladies, you feel me?

3. We hate shaving

It doesn’t matter where, or even how nice the razor is, we still don’t like doing it. Whether it’s our pits, our legs or our crotch area, shaving is a pain and takes up way too long in the shower. Lots of women wear pants (especially when it’s cold outside) just to avoid the hassle of shaving. Plus, we HATE getting razor bumps on our lady bits.

4. We are particular about pooping in public

When we have to (and absolutely HAVE to) go while out in public, we try to pretend we’re not in the stall and act dead silent if someone comes in. We won’t poop until they’re left the bathroom. If they came to poop there is usually a poop stalemate. And nobody wins in a poop stalemate.

5. We have gross shower habits too

Yes, women pee in the shower. Why go in the toilet when you’re just going to get in the shower and it’ll run down the drain…am I right? Aaannnd all women stick their hair that falls out to the wall of the shower with the intent of removing it after– and usually forget.


6. We deal with “that time of the month” creatively

Have you ever been out and about and discovered that your friend Flo came for a visit–and you have no pads or tampons with you? Yes, women have to get all DIY by rolling up wads of toilet paper. Or…we bleed in our underwear. Yes, we know it’s gross…but unfortunately inevitable at times. We soak it afterwards in the bath or sink and sometimes forget about that too…

7. We don’t shower every single day

Our hygiene is questionable at times. We can go four days without washing hair and validate it by using dry shampoo. No time to shower? Wash off armpits and apply perfume and/or lotion all over body. No time to wash face? Too LAZY to wash face? No problem! Re-apply new makeup OVER yesterday’s crusty makeup.

8. We assume the position

So… women fart. Sometimes out loud (usually in the car or when we’re alone and we laugh hysterically). Sometimes, though, we can’t fart out loud (i.e.: job interview, first date etc) and so we get into a strategic position so we can either hold it in or let it out really slowly (praying the whole time that it doesn’t stink).

9. We struggle in the dressing room

Especially when we put on something that’s way too tight and restrictive– and then we can’t get it off. We panic for a moment and force said clothing article off our bodies.

10. We want to look good when we’re emotional

We will always check to see how we look after a crying session and sometimes watch ourselves cry to see if we’re “pretty criers.” It’s not usually the case. Puffy eyes, red nose and swollen cheeks don’t really make anyone look hot
