Reddit users have put an interesting twist on 'coming out' stories.
One of them, Deplete1 asked the following question:
Straight people, how did your friends and family find out?
The social network's users were quick to share their heterosexual discovery stories.
Warning: some of these are incredibly awkward.
When I was a teenager I had a girlfriend, who I would routinely take into my room and have sex with. We tried to be quiet but of course I was super paranoid about it. My parents never said anything about it.
Then one day my best guy friend came over and we were playing video games in my room. It was a fighting game with plenty of male grunting. After my friend left, my dad sat me down and asked me if I was having gay sex.
I had to tell him that the girl that was always coming over was my girlfriend, and I was having sex with her. And I was not, in fact, having gay sex with my best friend. It was like the birds and the bees talk, but in reverse.
It was the most bizarre conversation I’ve ever had to this day.
