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:

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.

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.

I believe in experiences, and positivity attracts me. I believe in recording everything, memories, experiences, narratives, and feelings. This is maybe the reason I find solace in writing. My entire life I've been traveling across the country; I've been meeting new people, I've been listening to their stories and learning a lot from them. I live in the city that witnessed Bajirao and Mastani's love. While I love to explore different areas, I also admire the fact that people are so different yet so similar to each other. I believe everyone you meet has something to teach you.
