Myths About Sex
Sex is something people are often not very comfortable to talk about and there are several myths about sex prevailing in our younger generation. This leads to unawareness about the sex amongst many.
Here is a list of myths about Sex that people need to stop believing in:
1. “Double Layering” (Wearing 2 condoms) Prevents Pregnancy
The fact is, it increases the chances of pregnancy. The layers rub against each other causing them to break. One is enough.
2. Too Much Sex Will Ruin Your Vagina
The vagina is a highly elastic muscle, not a pair of jeans — it’s not going to “stretch out” after being used. This myth only serves to shame women for being sexually active, as sex was discouraged by orthodox people.
3. Size = Satisfaction
Penis size is more important to a male’s ego than a woman’s pleasure. The G-spot is located 2 inches inside the vagina and the head of the penis stimulates the G-spot while thrusting. A big penis often misses the G-spot completely. Hence, it may be down to individual preferences, but the size has nothing to do with satisfaction.
4. The First Time Will Be Painful For Her
First-time sex should be as likely to hurt as regular sex. Reasons, why it may hurt more, could be; the female not being aroused, causing a lack of self-lubrication, possibly leading to abrasions or tearing.
5. Birth Control Pills Result In Weight Gain
It’s often a temporary side effect that’s due to fluid retention, not extra fat. A review of 44 studies showed no evidence that birth control pills caused weight gain in most women. And, as with other possible side effects of the pill, any weight gain is generally minimal and goes away within 2 to 3 months.
6. Having Babies Will Ruin Your Vagina
Although some women report varying in sensitivity, post-baby vaginas largely return back to their original shape within weeks of giving birth.
7. The position will influence the gender of your baby
Despite “Old Wives’ Tales”, different positions will not influence your baby’s gender.
8. Regular Sex Is Not Healthy
Having sex on a regular basis is part of a healthy, normal adult life. At the end of the day, it comes down to quality over quantity. Having sex daily doesn’t mean it’s too much, as long as both partners enjoy it. But if partners are regularly having sex and one person feels more satisfied than the other, sex can start to feel like a chore for the less-satisfied party.
