But my games were pretty tame compared to some of the stories these 19 Redditors shared :. When he received the dare he literally just got up and walked out the house. Then the girl gets drunk, tries it on with a few guys there to which they all rejected , confessed her love to another guy there, threatened to kill herself, then fell asleep. This was a few years ago. I saw her a few months back and she looked pretty normal to me. That is pretty and normal, but I will never forget that day. I picked my own dare. Still hurts.

Hidden World Of Girls
At a sleepover in junior high we dared our friend to strip down to his underwear…you know, homoerotic pubescent stuff. This girl asked her friend to dare someone to have unprotected sex with her. When he received the dare he literally just got up and walked out the house. Then the girl gets drunk, tries it on with a few guys there to which they all rejected , confessed her love to another guy there, threatened to kill herself, then fell asleep. Everyone watched…. Instead, we found out that the man had received a BJ from every woman there and one of the men. Names changed, feelings were hurt. My friends little brother 9 or 10 years old came in and dared one of the girls to slit her finger open, put a paperclip into her finger then stick that paperclip into an electrical outlet while it was still in her finger.

My sister has children younger than mine, but the kids all play together frequently. She recently caught them involved in a game of "truth or dare" and a couple of the kids had no clothes on. While I was surprised to hear it and have spoken to my children about it, it seems to me to be one of those games that kids play. My sister insists it's about dominance and sex and refuses to let my kids play with hers any longer. I'm heartbroken over her reaction and don't know how to respond. We barely speak anymore. What do you think? Whether what happened was because of natural curiosity or about "dominance" would depend on the ages of the children involved.
