Cosmo readers share their most shocking stories and steamiest secrets.
“My college roommate, Komal, scored a job in the same city I live in, and I was excited for us to reunite. But she was going to live with a childhood friend, Megha. The morning of Komal’s arrival, I was late to pick her up and couldn’t find a cab... until I saw one pull up for a girl who had just beaten me to it. Wet and late, I jumped in front of her and hissed, ‘Sorry, but I really need this.’ I heard her say, ‘Are you serious?!’ as I slammed the door, but I didn’t care. When I got to the airport, Komal told me that Megha was coming to meet us, too. Guess who Megha was? Yep, the taxi cab girl. She was cold to me and I could tell she recognised me from my thievery. Komal still can’t figure out why her roomie doesn’t like me!” —Neha Trehan, 27
“I was on a date at an outdoor beer garden when a bee started buzzing around me. I freaked, started swatting the air, and accidentally knocked over a full pitcher of beer into my date’s lap! He was a good sport, but I was mortified.”

“A few months after I broke up with my boyfriend, a cute guy asked me out, and apprehensively, I said yes. One of my friends came up with a great plan for me: wear granny panties on the date but keep a sexy pair in my purse to ensure that I’d go home with him only if it was a good idea. I took her advice and arrived on the date wearing a huge, beige pair. We hit it off, so halfway through dinner, I excused myself to change. I had the bloomers half way down my butt when the door creaked open and I saw my date staring at me. Turns out, I had walked into the men’s room! I had no choice but to explain the situation. But he clearly lost interest, and we never spoke again.”

“One night, I was really tired while texting this girl I was dating. Plus, our conversation was boring me. So to keep awake, I decided to steer into sexy territory. I told her I couldn’t stop thinking about the time that we had sex on the beach... Before she even responded, I sent another text about the time we had sex in the bathroom at a sushi restaurant. Only problem was, I was reminiscing with the wrong girl! She quickly called me out for my player ways and called me an a**hole. She’s ignored me ever since and I learned to never, ever, sext while tired.” —Nikhil Bhargava, 23
