15 Unexpectedly Candid Tips For Straight Guys From Reddit's Gay Men

"Don't be afraid of butt stuff. It's mind blowing if done right."

Move over, Maxim... the new go-to advice gurus for straight dudes are the gay men of Reddit.

An AskReddit thread titled "Gay men of Reddit, what advice do you have for Straight Men of Reddit?" is full of useful advice and juicy tidbits, offering suggestions about everything ranging from girlfriends' gossip habits to plumbing. 

The Huffington Post pulled some of our favorite pieces of user-submitted advice. 

Because this is Reddit, we can't guarantee the people dispensing this advice are all, in fact, gay men. But the sentiment is clear, and the advice is useful regardless of who it comes from.

Our favorites:

"Like three times a week turn your ps4 off over night but use rest mode. your games will be updated and it wont over work." — longjohnsmcgee

"Don't be afraid of butt stuff. It's mind blowing if done right." — whateverimbored

"Listen to women. They may not be telling you things expecting you to fix the problem. They might just want you to listen and show empathy." — Simpawknits

"Don't be afraid to be openly affectionate toward your buds gay or straight! Just because you hug a friend or put your arm around them doesn't make you one of those queer-mo-sexuals." — Iamgoofy

"Eat lots of pineapple and honey if you want your girl to swallow." — xavierdc

"As long as a gay friend isn't crushing on you, we're really good at helping you figure out if a girl is right for you or if you're just blinded by pussy. We have a special ability with hot women called, 'You have no power here!' and we find out very quickly which ones become hell to deal with if they can't wrap you around their finger." — BrobearBerbill

"Re-read the game of thrones series, things are much clearer the second time." — genericka

"[W]e hear a lot from your girlfriends. Like, a lot. If we're close, she'll tell us the whole story. And one thing I've learned from woman I know/hardly know/have literally met that night, it's that dick size doesn't matter. Most women and gays would much prefer a guy who knows what he's doing than someone who just sits on his high horse because his dick's above average. And yeah, there are size queens, but they aren't important." — itriedtoenice

"When it gets really cold outside, like below freezing, open the cabinets where your sink pipes are, and set the faucet to drip. This will keep your pipes from freezing and bursting. Also, after walking your dog, wipe their feet off when they come inside so they don't ingest any road salt they may have picked up on their paw." — KeatingOrRoark

"Don't treat your gay friends any differently than any of your other friends. If you're physically affectionate with your other friends but actively avoid doing so with your gay friend, we notice. If you have no trouble walking into a public bathroom with your other friends, but wait until your gay friend is done before going in, we notice." — thegreatpablo

"Try to stop worrying too much when interacting with women you fancy; I've known a fair few of my straight friends incapable of flirting with women, whereas I've had to turn down the same women without even realising I was seeming flirtatious because I was just talking to them as I would anyone else without any agenda." — Birtyboy

"If you're wearing sweatpants, everyone can see your dick." — accretion_disc

"Start saving for retirement early. A properly managed portfolio can save you a ton of hassle years down the line." — Bob_Bobinson

"As a gay man, I just want to say that it's ok to express your emotions... It's also ok to discuss your feelings and may even help your relationship with a significant other." — Cananbaum

"Don't be scared to really get in and scrub the old sheriff's badge, and there should always be a good scrubbing down there between your last number 2 and the next time you might have sex." — BrobearBerbill
