Information is power right? But what’s the use of information when it’s false? S*x might be just an act, but in reality it’s more than act; the whole of humans existence has depended and revolved around s*x to avoid extinction, which makes it an even broader subject.
While growing up, many are told different lies about s*x by their peers, parents and even the media, and a lot carry such lies up to adulthood.
1. WITHDRAWAL METHOD CAN PREVENT PREGNANCY
While many by now know that the withdrawal method is not close to being safe in avoiding pregnancy, a lot of people still believe that as far as they don’t ejaculate inside the woman then they are safe. This is totally false.
There hasn’t been enough research on pre-cum; however, it’s been suggested that even though it doesn’t contain sperm, it may pick up sperm left in the urethra from a previous ejaculation leaving you at risk of getting pregnant.
Also, the withdrawal method has an estimated failure rate at 22%, making it an unreliable method of prevention.
2. WOMEN AREN’T VISUALLY STIMULATED LIKE MEN
Men and women alike think that men are way more visually stimulated than women. The media especially propagates such thoughts the more, which is a reason why semi-naked girls are used in videos with the men fully clothed.
A research conducted by researchers from McGill University found that women are just aroused as much by what they see like men, but most women do not discuss or admit it. They found that it took both men and women approximately ten minutes to be fully aroused by a pornographic video.
Another interesting study conducted by researchers from Washington University School of Medicine found that women had a more powerful and instantaneous response to a sensual image than a disturbing or pleasant one. They concluded that “women have responses as strong as those seen in men”.
3. TOO MUCH S*X WOULD AFFECT THE VAGINA
This is also another lie women have been told, probably to shame them from having too much s*x. Research has found the vagina to be a highly elastic muscle contrary to the average perception that it would stretch after every use.
4. SIZE IS ALL IMPORTANT
Another lie that’s been told is that size is everything. The average man’s organ when erect is 5 inches long, whereas that of a woman is 3-4 inches long which makes it quite suitable.
5. VAGINAL STIMULATION IS EVERYTHING
Many men believe that pleasing their lady is all about how hard or how long they can trust, but that’s also a lie. Clitoral stimulation is way more effective than vaginal stimulation; just a few women can actually reach desired heights via vaginal stimulation, whereas a vast majority of women would reach the promised land via clitoral stimulation.
6. PORN S*X IS THE REAL DEAL
Many couples model their s*x lives to be like porn, with the belief that it’s the real way. Most porn movies are designed to suit the male audience (probably because they watch porn the most). However, if you pattern your s*x lives like that, you’re making a huge mistake because it’s mostly the masculine sexual desires and fantasies that are explored in a pornographic movie.
