People Discuss Acts That Are Supposedly Sexy But Aren't

Every day we are barraged with images of sex selling us commodities and ideas. Viral images and media tell us what is 'sexy,' but the real life manifestations of these supposed turn-ons are often just weird and awkward. Of course beach sex looks like the perfect fantasy when it's filmed at dusk with a shallow-focus lens on a miraculously empty, windless shore, but in reality, the logistical challenges of such an operation are enough to turn someone off. 

One redditor asked the internet to share examples of things that are supposed to turn us on, but are actually pretty un-sexy in reality, and the resulting thread is hilarious. Whether you find these responses relatable, inaccurate, or revelatory, they're sure to at least be entertaining.

20+ Reasons Why Jerks Shouldn't Be Allowed to Design Things

By now, we're all used to the fact that Capitalism™️ requires businesses to keep coming up with clever new ways to maximize profits by bamboozling consumers, but sometimes the levels of trickery can reach infuriating heights. Some true a-holes out there design products, websites and interfaces not so much to sell us something of actual value, but to trick us into clicking or paying to escape the frustration they've intentionally caused. If you're as pissed off as we are about these jerks, keep scrolling for some maddening examples of a-hole design

Cringey Guy Horrifies Women With Bewildering Attempt At Seduction

Few internet phenomena have developed at the alarming rate of men's thirst traps. Gone are the days when a partially clad mirror selfie would satisfy attention seekers; it's now a whole process involving ring lights, mood music and worst of all, meticulously planned video.

The time when half the population seemed hellbent on perfecting a Lin-Manuel Miranda lip bite was bad enough. Yet somehow, we appear to be in a horrible new era of embarrassing, romantically inclined content creation. Twitter users seized on an example of this over the weekend after discovering the work of TikToker @spencermumford.

In particular, one video attracted all the wrong kind of attention. In it, Mumford lipsyncs and winks at the camera while proclaiming that he is attracted to the "Big Hearts" of women in a long list of ethnicities. To apparently prove his point, he announces that he "love[s] rhythm" with some alarmingly offbeat dancing and seemingly out of nowhere, professes his love for the soundtrack provided by Nigerian musician Burna Boy.

Despite his attempt to charm, Twitter was less than convinced by his confused and slightly terrifying efforts. If there's one takeaway from this trainwreck, it's that nobody becomes a heartthrob by being tryhard.

26 Cringey Examples Of Gratuitous Gatekeeping

The internet is brimming with examples of bullshitters who state opinion as fact, make unwarranted declarations about their authority on a subject, and make up ridiculous rules about who has the right to enjoy or experience specific things. These people are called gatekeepers. The annoying gatekeeper is also known for putting others down for not suffering enough to warrant feeling unhappy with a shitty situation. Like if you're venting to someone about being exhausted after a 40-hour work week and they just mock you for not having worked 70 hours like them. r/gatekeeping is a good document of people who won't get off their high horse, even after someone points out that their horse is just a withered cardboard box. 

We've got a bunch of cringey and eye-roll inducing examples of groundless gatekeeping thanks to all the avid screenshotters out there.

20+ Entitled People Who Should Be Ashamed Of Themselves

In the age of GoFundMe, people are becoming super entitled and super shameless when they ask for help of any kind. These "needy" individuals are some of the worst offenders we've seen yet.

20 People Share Their All-Time Favorite Tweets

We do a lot of Twitter roundups here at Memebase. The site is absolutely brimming with clever witticisms from extremely funny writers and comedians. Though it is satisfying to parse through consistent collections of fresh tweets, sometimes we wish there was a Twitter time capsule that allowed us to revisit some of the best the site's ever had to offer. Fortunately for us, Twitter user @awkwardduck pretty much created such a time capsule when she asked her followers to share the best tweets they'd  ever seen on the bird app. The results? Absolutely amazing. The thread is basically an unending walk down hilarious tweet memory lane. We've put together some of our favorites below, but if you want more (and naughtier) tweets, take a look at the thread yourself. You wont regret it.

'Unpopular Opinion' About Working Weekends Gets Roasted by the Internet

Another day, another terrible Twitter take. The state of how we work has been a major topic of discussion as the world attempts to return to normalcy as Covid-19 seems to be less of a threat for many countries. There have been many think-pieces and Twitter threads about working remotely and fair wages. Then there was the revelation that people would rather quit their jobs than go back to the office. People are starting to question how much of our lives are devoted to work. Which is healthy. Time is precious. We need money, but should we be grinding ourselves to death for it? Or spending 10 hours a week commuting? We don't think so. 

There are, of course, opponents of this radical way of thinking. There are CEOs who are eager to pull the plug on remote work - and the BBC is reporting that the five-day workweek will be re-normalized by 2022. But one person thinks that five days is not enough. Twitter user and venture capitalist (Principal at Atomic) Jordan Kong stoked the ire of a lot of people this past weekend when she tweeted her thoughts on young people trying to work on their careers. 

The sentiment - which seems a little dehumanizing - was not received well. Proponents of balance and "working to live" were quick to share their opposition. Incredulous people shared some roasty zingers. And then, of course, the funny people of Twitter turned the tweet into a snowclone, with some memes showing their disdain for the take and others using it to make jokes filled with pop culture references. Though we're sure some people will disagree, it's nice to see some people standing up for our right to not work. Even if they're doing it through memes.

We've got some pretty cringey and amusing examples of times deceivers got what they deserved.

Cringey Lies From Internet Attention-Seekers

We've got to hand it to these people. While we've been struggling with writer's block, trying to cover the dumb shit that happens on the internet in a simple, yet reasonably thoughtful way, there are clearly plenty creative writers having an easy go of it. But don't let their details or specificity fool you - these people are masterminds of fiction. 

Though most of us would like to consume approach the world with less skepticism, the more time we spend on the internet the harder it gets. On Twitter there are hordes of parents fabricating stories about how their 2 year old is an emotional or intellectual savant. Anti-maskers celebrate highly dubious acts of rebellion. Influencers claim that women fall at their feet. Some of them are straight up seeking attention, or some validation to fill some kind of void in their souls. Others have more of an agenda. But they've all got one thing in common: being incredibly cringeyliars.  And we're here to share some of that cringe with you.

29 Cringey & Embrassing Photoshop Failures

While the internet has given people the ability to share images of themselves and (apparently) the world around them, it's also give people the opportunity to attempt to alter reality with the handy dandy tool that is Photoshop. Or worse, budget programs that are meant to alter ones appearance on dating apps or Instagram. Blatant catfishing aside, the practice not only takes people for fools, but it reveals some seriously messed up insecurities. Or, in the case of retail websites and photographers, a seriously stingy practice of cutting costs. While we feel for those with crappy body image, we can't help but laugh at these arguably terrible attempts at suave photo editing. They're cringey. They're shoddy. And they're absolutely hilarious.
