6 Sex Myths that You Probably Still Believe In

Sex is kind of a touchy subject. On one hand, some people want to talk about it and are willing to address any issues about it as openly as possible. On the other, it is considered a “hush-hush” topic and should not be addressed at all.

That is why some myths about sex still prevail to this day. For instance, you might have heard of the notion that eating certain seafood can help you last longer in bed.
Well, that is just a myth. That and other myths will be debunked in this article, so strap your tinfoil hats and let’s bust some of them!

1.Wearing a Condom Should Help You Last Longer

Although it is true that condoms can help reduce the sensation that you feel down there whenever you’re thrusting your manhood inside your partner’s vagina, the difference in ejaculation time will be no different (or if there is a difference, it is negligible).

But, if wearing a condom doesn’t help you last longer in bed, just take solace in the fact that you’re not going to be making your partner pregnant.

2.Men Think About Sex All Day

This is pretty hard to quantify, given that thoughts are, well, hard to quantify. However, there are some men who can attest that they think about sex all of the time, but those are just the vocal minority.

If anything, men are thinking about how to become successful in life. That and what video games they want to play when they arrive at home.

3.Taking Birth Control Pills Can Make You Fat

Well, this myth is only partially true, but that is because of the conditions you’re in when taking a pill. Not all birth control pills are the same. There are some that can contribute to weight gain, albeit it is only minor and nothing really full blown.

I suggest that you talk with your physician about the possible side effects of a certain pill to help prepare yourself if getting fat is part of the side effects.

4.Not Masturbating (and Ejaculating) Can Help Build-up Semen

This is one of those pervasive myths that just wouldn’t die and people who believe in this really do not know how their bodies work.

Ever wonder why celibate monks just do not release a huge load? That is because any unused sperm (ones that are not ejaculated) just goes back to the body and gets reabsorbed. If anything, just masturbate.

5.Wet Dreams Are Only for Men

Nope. In fact, according to at least two studies, about 38% of women that were surveyed admitted to having at least one orgasm during sleep. This just means that women can have wet dreams.

6.Finding the Person of Your Dreams Instantly Equates to Mind-Blowing Sex

The thing is that the person that you deem as the “right one for you” may have different sexual experiences, techniques, and even preferences. So although I am not ruling out the possibility that they do indeed have the capacity to help give you some mind-blowing sex; this is something that you shouldn’t think about when looking for a partner.
