You say you’ve heard it all when it comes to the topic of sex? We bet even the biggest sexpert has been fooled by these 13 myths.
That’s not true!
Age is just a number
Think that women tend to reach their sexual peak at a certain age and much later than men reach theirs? Wrong! There is no set age when a woman reaches her sexual peak.
Bigger is better
Size, whether bigger or smaller, is not the only determining factor of great sex.
Multiple Os are just for women
Men can have more than one orgasm, too. Just because they ejaculate doesn’t mean the fun is over. A man can have peaks of arousal during sex before he ejaculates.
No toys allowed
If you assume he doesn’t want you to use your vibrator during sex, you might be wrong! According to a recent Indiana University study, 41 percent of women have used a battery-powered sex toy during sexual activity with their partner.
Women don’t want it
It’s just a myth that women don’t want sex as much as men. There is no proof of that.
Sex gets old
Just because people age doesn’t mean sex has to go out the window! As long as there are no health factors to derail them, men and women can still engage in sex as they get older.
Men have stronger and more sexual urges than women
Not true. Men experience phases of strong and weak sexual desire much as women do. Factors like diet, sleep, health, stress and self-confidence impact a man’s desire for sex just as much as they do a woman’s.
Certain foods can put you in the mood
Despite the fact that oysters, dark chocolate and strawberries are considered to be aphrodisiacs, there is no scientific evidence that these foods really put you in the mood. Some foods can trigger erotic memories, however.
Think fantasizing about another person while in bed with your partner is bad? There is actually nothing wrong with living out that fantasy about Channing Tatum during a sack session with your man. Just keep it to yourself.
Semen is low-carb
It is actually composed mostly of fructose and enzymes.
The long and short of it
Think a man’s erect penis is 8 inches long? In reality, the average length of a man’s erect penis is between 5 and 7 inches.
The pill is the most common form of birth control
You have tons of options when it comes to contraceptives. Plan B, which you can now get over the counter, can be effective up to five days after having sex.
Food doesn’t affect the taste or smell of semen
It turns out that while semen is naturally bitter, foods likes broccoli and beverages like coffee make it even worse. Eww.
