Are Men Really Sticking Their Junk Into Beakers After Sex? One Woman Claims They Are

Engaging in sexual activity can result in some untidiness, and it's understandable to want to tidy up a bit before snuggling up afterwards. Typically, individuals might choose to quickly relieve themselves and perhaps clean up with a towel or similar item. However, a female Mumsnet user recently shared that she and her partner have a different method involving a container designed for holding a penis.

1. What The Hell's A Penis Beaker, You Ask?

SaraCrewe, a user on Mumsnet, posted on the popular forum without bothering to change her display name. She had heard rumors about her and her husband's sexual behavior and was seeking validation from others, hoping they would reassure her that she was normal. "We have a dedicated post-sex cleanup area on the bedside table," she wrote. "A box of tissues, a small bin, and a beaker of clean water for temporary cleaning/dunking while the bathroom is occupied by me. Apparently our penis beaker is strange and not the done thing. Does everyone else just lay there in a sticky post-coital glow until morning? Really?"

2. Yeah, This Is Weird

SaraCrewe was hoping for validation from others who also had a "penis beaker," but that did not occur. Instead, the other women on the forum burst into virtual laughter, finding it hard to believe that this was a genuine concern. They had several questions, such as why SaraCrewe and her partner couldn't just use the bathroom together, why he couldn't go after she finished, and what happened to traditional methods like using towels and baby wipes.

3. It's Technically Not A Beaker

The original poster (OP) disclosed that the item in question was actually a green tumbler cup purchased from a local store, in case anyone was under the impression that they had an authentic scientific beaker on their bedside table or elsewhere.

4. Is This Dirty Talk For Them?

A commenter on the forum asked whether SaraCrewe and her partner considered the "penis beaker" as part of their foreplay and had a crucial technical inquiry: Did one of them suddenly get in the mood and announce, "I'm feeling fruity tonight darling, fill up the penis beaker!"?

5. What If Someone Accidentally Drank From This?

According to SaraCrewe, her water bottle has a pop-top to avoid confusing it with the "junk dunker," but since they have children, a commenter raised a concern about the possibility of kids accidentally drinking from it. The mere thought of it made the commenter nauseous.

6. This Is Just… Kinda Gross

While SaraCrewe's partner may feel that sleeping with unclean genitals is unpleasant, a commenter argued that leaving a cup filled with genital fluids on the bedside table overnight and having to dispose of it the next day is even more unpleasant. The commenter believed that getting out of bed for a quick wash is a more practical and hygienic option.

7. Dear God, I Hope They Don't Use That Cup For Anything Else

Just the thought of visiting SaraCrewe's house for dinner and seeing a green tumbler cup on the table is cringe-worthy. It's better to run! But before that, one should read the entire thread on Mumsnet and be prepared for a hilarious experience that may cause one's cheeks to ache from laughing too much.
