Women have three holes so that when they get drunk, they can be carried home like a bowling ball.

Some people's children.... are male? did not have a human anatomy course in high school? were sheltered from learning about the human reproductive system? Really, ladies: when men think about your genitals, we tend to think about what we can put into them, not about what comes out of them. To a man who has lived in the United States, and grown in it's 'education' system, it's not unexpected that they (who have never had to experience a period, nor spent inordinate amounts of time watching women urinate) expect women to urinate through the big, obvious opening. The state of our education system is such that it is difficult to teach human anatomy and physiology, and understandably, the excretory process is typically not dealt with in any specific detail. Therefore, unless your boyfriend was a VERY curious child and his mother was very open, I find it hard to believe it could be expected for him to know exactly where your urethra is.

well it's elementary, my dear

Some peoples children.

What about them? The suspense is killing me!!

I didn't read what you said but good answer!

Hahahah to be honest I can totally sympathise with the OPs boyfriend when I was about 13 I remember asking a simmilar question in class, all the girls started laughing their arses off at me while all the guys were like WHAT!?? To be fair if you don't have a vagina you can't be expected to know, guys have one hole for pissing and one for pooping until I was told I thought women had the same amount, yet more proof we're from completly different planets perhaps...??

56 said it like a champ! even the private schools are praising mediocrity! it started with the no child left behind crap, how to you expect our generation to excel when we dumb it down for them just because parents don't give a crap and won't enforce their education?! bravo america.

Well put 56! If a girl sticks in a tampon that doesn't have her period, pees, and pulls it out. There will be a little bit of pee on it. Who knows this? People that experienced doing it. I don't expect every guy to know everything. He asked, you told him and now he knows. Not a big deal.

when I was little I thought pee and the baby came out the same hole lol. I also thought pee came out of the clit...

see even 95 didnt know about her own parts. but she said she was little... i didnt know about all the holes and whatnot until i was face to face to a vagina. and i didnt ask cuz i was embarrased about asking. i thought the pee and baby came out the same hole. us guys have it easy. we jizz and pee through the same hole. and we shit out through another hole. nothing to worry about

#66 Legit question, excellent answer.

maybe my school is weird because in health we're given plenty of diagrams of both female and male genitalia.

when I first read this I also thought for a sec that how do they do it. then I realized that they have seperate openings and they stuff the tampon in the other one. and I am a medical student.

99 you didn't see a vagina via porn before? the first time I saw a vagina was mine when I was 13 I think, I held a mirror up to it and was like "ewww guys like that??"

This FML seems strangely familiar... -.-

121 porn usually has dildos, fingers, penis, if shes loose maybe a fist, or something like that in the vagina. what porn shows a vagina all wide open and starts to explain the parts to it. in 5th grade is when i got the sex ed class. what 5th grader is paying attention? all the boys are there laughing and feeling all awkward they are learning all that. i failed biology... so i never paid attention enough to look at diagrams of genitals

is it bad that I'm a girl and didn't know this? :/ guess you learn stuff everyday

I have to admit I didn't know this either till the first time I had my period. no one tells you this kinda stuff! I am a girl so a guy not knowing that doesn't surprise me. I am sure many guys and girls have asked or wondered this same thing :) not really a fml though.

@135 all the girls in my school were told about this sort of thing long before we had our periods and in sex ed all the kids were shown diagrams of both parts. There is no way anyone over the age of 11 in my school could have written this FML. Well unless they didn't attend sex ed for whatever reason.

No. Not at all. That's just absurd. It's not rocket science.

This is why I touch my genitals everyday, in hopes to become more and more familiar with myself with every stroke-- I mean touch :)

It says on the leaflet it the boxes so some women mustn't know or they wouldn't need to write it...

how do u i dont know?

yum we love it

#156.. that's fucked up but funny too! lmao

took me so long trying to thumb 56's comment without hitting the "back" button

wait, girls don't have peepees???? WTF!!! so are they like just flat down there?? WTH!!!

r u being serious or joking i cant tell if that was sarcasm lol

207 - shut up you're not funny. now go give Mulan back her makeup.

I agree 216! 207 get a life. not funny.

207 - Shit was funny. Haters gonna hate.

56, that's almost like saying we should think men piss out of their ass.

248 For fuck's sake, it's clear the penis' use it to piss. Don't try to dumb it down, it was perfect,

216, thank you for making FML funnier.

193 - your comment makes you sound like an ignorant, attention seeking child.

You guys are really open.

no one gives afuck

my ex didn't know there were two holes down there...but he was a teenager....anyone older should know common body anatomy

Sounds like a virgin... Did you.. did you "educate" him and taught it's more than one?

there's two holes?...

193- there's this little thing on iphones & itouches & its called AUTO CORRECT. i am a grammar nazi too but that clearly was an accident & not on purpose. so go in a corner and finish your application to hogwarts.

What!? Im 18 male and I thought pee and baby comes out from the same hole. Wtf?!

if u only now just discovered this, that's really not good, u don't know ur own anatomy ?

Wow, you're really cool. I hope to be as smart as you some day.

I don't believe that is a fair comparison. Keep in mine the original post asked how women piss with a tampon in, not where it comes from. From a guys perspective, we're thinking if you shoved a tampon up our pee hole, we definitely could not pee.

When it comes down to it, there's a different hole for all your secreting fluids.

in my school we learned about it separately. girls learned about the vagina and guys learned about the penis. I never learned about the penis in school and have the guys in my school still dont know a thing about the vagina

Omfg this is Fml not language arts. Gtfo!

Sorry, OP, but your boyfriend's an idiot.

386, you kind of suck...

325 I thought the same thing too...well you learn something every day

thats a very long very stupid comment..... dont have sex if ur unaware of the reproductive organs k!! how can u make it asif its ok to appear dumb when it comes to the human body

no not flat! its a lil clit thing that makes u cum n cum over n over

248- So true roflmao

As an American woman, I specifically remember being in MIDDLE SCHOOL and being taught by one of my teachers (well, not really "taught" since I already knew) about the anatomy of the vagina and how it has two different openings, etc. Therefor, there is no reason why any person male or female shouldn't know about that unless they had SERIOUS problems with not paying attention in school.

how old are you woman?

ok look. Men have 2, count them 2, holes. One for urine, one for feces. Women have 3. Up until when I was 14 I didn't know that. Reason being is that the urethra is not separate from the vagina. Thus, confusion is very easy.

Wow does it really matter? Like seriously! God, get a life and stop trying to make yourself feel better by correcting people's grammar.

well 121 prob not yours ur face is do damn ugly

Omg I love these comments hahahahaha

Good question though. Very thought ful thinking

#56 It is common knowledge. There is no excuse. Especially not today when internet is so available and you can find all the answers you need. And sorry, not all males are ignorant that they would lack basic elementary knowledge and only care what they can stick in like dog in heat. If you are so ignorant of the human body you definitely should not have sex.

Show it anyway

It's an FML because the boyfriend is uneducated.

Please explain what happens?

The tampon will explode

women have 3 holes the anus the hole that the tampon goes in also the pee hole!

ewwww. this is so horrible to know

@24 It's called a vagina. There is the anus, vagina and urethra.

24, They also have their mouths, ear holes and nostrils. Only 3 of these 6 can be used in sex, however. Can you guess which?

63, do you give your boyfriend an anatomy lesson and, later, pop quizzes everytime before you have sex? Didn't think so.

you're an idiot...

That is awesome!

Don't listen to these people. When girls pee with a tampon, it just soaks it right up. Then we have to do the ole switcharoo. We also don't poop either.

actually four. my friend cameron had ear sex.

24- That's twice you've said "...the hole the tampon goes in". Please surrender your teaching license.

64 Your comment made me LOL :D

ear. vagina. mouth :D

149 wow thts funny

ewwwwwwwwwwww go away

Actually, there are four holes. The clit has a hole too!

theirs a fouth hole but u have to look at it a certan way

that would rattled her brains a bit

111 - Your "friend" must have a damn small penis if it's fitting in someone's ear.

63 - learn to spell. Ahdurrrrr. 111 - that sounds disturbing on so many levels...

in my school we had Sex Ed for 4 years and never once did they mention that girls have separate holes for sex and urination. And I payed attention the whole time. I've been reading every FML daily as a habit for years, and the way I learned was through an FML similar to this one.

63, you are 16. should you even know what sex is yet?

I would like your comment,but it has 69,and I wouldn't ruin that. (;

oh oh oh the nose!

71: If my partner didn't know my basic anatomy, damn skippy I'm giving him a lesson! Only good things can come from that type of knowledge. As for quizzing, well, that's the fun part.

Every time I read a post, my knowledge increases by -1.

58, all the above?

I'm a tampon expert.

LOOOOL he's a keeper ;)

when I read this commet I smelt major queer. sorry

303 tht explains ur pic tht looks alot like a tampon with a smilyface yet not as...... yarny

im on the floor ! Madd Funnyyy

sex is taught in middle school, cause there are kids who r sadly starting to have sex at 10-12 years old!!!

Word. I never knew until now...

500- That is bull! Personally I have been through public middle school recently and I can state for a FACT that sex Ed is NOT taught. There is a section of life science about the functions of a penis and vagina but not together! There is even a permission slip that needs to be signed for the student to take part in this part of the class and at the top in bold it says THIS IS NOT A SEX ED CLASS! So no... It is not!

502- you do know that different school systems teach different things, at different times. I had Sex-Ed during my middle school years.......

#268, yes, he/she should. And sex is legal at 16

Oo How come your comment is burried? You are clearly right. I can not believe the ignorance of people. I simply cannot believe that they aren't from 3rd world country, attended elementary school, can read, have all the knowledge right in front of them on the internet and they are STILL so CLUELESS about BASIC facts about human body. I wonder if they even know they shit from different holes than they pee. Amazing.

not everyone knows how it works down there lol

*Peter kicks open stall* girl:AAAH!! peter: sorry retarted. girl: oh that's ok then. *kicks another* girl:AAAH!! peter: sorry retarted. girl: oh no. let me show you how everything works down there! :D Peter: O_O

Yea I didn't even know we had three holes till about the 6th grade...I was always to scared to look down there lol

Well, here's the jist of it. Girls pee and have their period out their butt. That's why they sit when they pee.

146 you have three holes in your cha-Chas????????????????

146-there r 3? I was never told

two in the front, one in the back. are you guys retarted?

Irony in your question? Are YOU retarded?

that didn't make sense. > -

I feel like op's boyfriend asked a valid question. a little childish but still, not everyone knows.

I'm a 19 year old guy and don't know ANYTHING regarding a female body... FML

That is so wrong it hurts

Oh dear... Some people should seriously be educated further.

no one cares, I was first

I agree, maybe some more anatomy needs to be taught haha

they only teach girls that in school, kinda like how they only teach the boys about the c*ck

23Z9TZO 18

well that is why he asked.. to get educated further

hahahha you fail you effer

whoa weird that comment was for a different thread (that got deleted), wasn't directed at you sorry

the tampon soaks up the lee :)

correction... women have 3 holes! the anus the hold the tampon goes in and a pee hole.

#19 I think he was being sarcastic

I think so! :-)

It amused *me.*

in the UK, "taking the piss" means something along the lines of drunk. Cultural education ftw!

Getting or being pissed = getting or being drunk Taking 'a' piss = peeing Taking 'the' piss = mocking, making fun of

Now that makes more sense

i am a little every week with glaucoma perscription lol

ok awkward yes, but try to understand that there are a lot of guys out there who just don't learn about that aspect of that area, I mean unless he paid attention in sex-Ed where was he gonna learn. not something mum usually tells son.

Note to self: educate young male relatives in workings of women parts. Do not educate them in our sexy naughty witchcraft.

If I found out my school was lacking in some education, either 1) I'd move him to a different school, or 2) teach him myself. Take some responsibility for your kids, people. Don't let your kids grow up to be idiots.
