Despite the abundance of information we have in the niche of sex and everything related to it, many of us are still misguided by popular misconceptions. While it might sound a bit hilarious at first, busting such myths is critical since these can ruin your sex life. Often, people develop a skewed perception of their sexual ability based upon such irrational myths that have been peddled on for many years. Here, we try to reveal the truth behind some of the most common myths about sex.
1. Unprotected sex is fine because my penis is the personification of precision.
Yeah, you can carry on boasting about the fact that so far, you have always been able to withdraw before ejaculating. However, if you think that this form of protection is effective, you couldn’t be more wrong. Just like most organs in our body, the penis too is composed of muscular fibers that controlled via a complex mechanism of commands sent via the nervous system. There is always a possibility of a slight dip in your degree of self-control or alertness levels. It takes the smallest of drops of the ejaculated fluid to establish pregnancy. Is the risk worth it?
2. Premature ejaculation is for the diseased only.
This is a rather common myth about sex. Most men and even women believe that premature ejaculation indicates some sort of a disease or weakness. The fact remains that premature ejaculation affects nearly every other man at some point, during his lifetime. Anxiety, poor nutrition, fatigue or depression can cause this temporary problem in any man.
3. Fantasizing during sex is bad.
A lot of experts have said it before but most people just don’t want to listen. Sex is essentially your mind at work and nothing else. Until your mind is properly stimulated, even an overdose of sexual hormones or Viagra cannot help you perform greatly in the sack. If you think that a fantasy of any sort can raise your performance levels, just use it without any shame or doubt.
4. Some folks are born geniuses at sex.
Reading about movie stars losing their virginity at a very early age or hearing about the sexual exploits of a co-worker might make you think like this. However, there is nothing like a natural-born sexual God. Even today, medical researchers have only been able to identify genes that influences the appetite for sex or our ability to get stimulated. There is no proof to suggest that people are born with a certain degree of sexual prowess. It is a learning curve for everybody. So stop moaning about it and practice more with your girl to become better.
5. The bigger the penis, the better the sex.
Unless you are suffering from a serious medical condition that has abnormally stunted your penis’ size, you have no reason to worry. If are you going to compare your assets with that of performers in X-rated movies, you are never going to be able to shed this insecurity. Yes, a bigger tool might raise the degree of pleasure to some extent but being average-sized is no reason to feel disgusted with yourself, i.e. as long as you know how to use it.
6. She should have orgasmed if you were actually good.
This is another common and an absolutely unreasonable belief about sex. Just about one-third women attain orgasm and that too doesn’t happen regularly. Chances of her hitting the orgasmic high repeatedly are extremely low. Don’t judge your performance based on this criteria alone.
7. Things have to be sensual to get it going.
Some folks have too many preconceived notions and rules about sex. For instance, many believe that absolute privacy and sensual clothing is necessary to make things steamy. However, your sexual inclination is just an outcome of how your mind functions. If you can think erotically or get aroused in seemingly regular environments, your hunger for sex could strike any time. Just watching a lady bent over the ironing table, even with messed-up hair and nomadic nightwear could set the ball rolling for some men.
8. Menstrual cycles are a God-sent, natural form of contraception.
A very common misconception is related to having sex during her periods. It seems that the entire world is convinced that unprotected sex during this phase cannot get a lady pregnant. Yes, according to scientific principles, this is exactly what should happen. However, the human body doesn’t function perfectly at all times. There is always a threat of accidental fertilization. Secondly, the sperm can survive within the reproductive tract of the female for a few days. If a sperm survives beyond the assumed duration of her periods, pregnancy can occur. Unless your lady and you are absolutely sure about her ovulation cycle, don’t take the risk.
