When it comes to creepy stories, Reddit is basically the holy grail. There's something so morbidly satisfying about confessional horror stories from real people on the internet. Maybe the anonymity implies there's no limit to what people will share. Or maybe you just know it's (probably) all true. Or perhaps you start wondering who in your life has stories like these. It's why the internet exists.
Whatever the reason, people want to share their secrets online, and other folks love to read them - a win-win for catharsis and entertainment. Some of these secrets are truly spine-tingling. Tales of inbreeding and stalking, or bodily function stories that you can never un-read. There's even murder.
It makes you wonder what's actually going on behind all of the normal facades we see each day. Because the truth is, people are downright creepy. And reading their secrets is enough to give you goosebumps.
The Self-Punishment Fantasy
From Redditor /u/greenpluggrenade:
So I've always been fat, always had a gut. Anyways late at night when everyone was asleep, I would pretend as though I was being kept hostage by men who hate fat girls. I would find belts and strings and would tighten them up as far as they could around my fatness creating rolls much like a roast. I would use items that would grab and close on the fat rolls and keep it there. I would imagine myself being treated like someone's swine. I don't know why I did this.
From Redditor /u/omfg_name_taken:
I have memories of my sister (five years older) and I playing a role-play game when I was younger that I think would be considered sexual abuse/molestation if I told anyone. I don't remember how old we were, but I know she was around the age where her breasts were developing. When home alone we would play a role play game where she was a boss and I was a secretary, and the boss would always harass the secretary. It ended in my sucking on my sister's breasts while she would lie on the couch with her shirt off.
My memory has always been really horrible, so I only remember patches of this... I don't actually trust my memory enough to feel confident that this really happened.
I love my sister, she's my best friend and I would never want to damage our relationship by ever bringing this up and asking her what really happened. It is a secret I will carry with me and never reveal.
A Feline Encounter
From Redditor /u/throwaway1450:
This will probably never be seen by anyone but f*ck it. My father once owned a cat who loved to suck our earlobes for whatever reason. About half-a-decade ago my father left me alone in his apartment with his cat and I don't know exactly why but I just grabbed the cat, went in the bathroom with it, laid on my back, put it on my chest and let it suck my earlobes while masturbating. I find myself f*cking disgusting when I think about it but I still think that it was one of my best faps.
They Blame Themselves
From a former Redditor:
My Great Uncle Jack used to live with my family. One day, he got drunk and had a bad fall that ended up causing him to bleed out. I ended up finding him (I was 14 at the time, and had never seen such an awful sight) and lost consciousness due to all the blood. When I eventually recovered, I called the ambulance and stayed with my uncle. He died in the back of the ambulance, holding my hand. No one knows about what happened to me, and if they did they would realize that I'm the reason he's dead.
