Ridiculous Sex Myths We Should Stop Believing!

When people start talking about sex, we tend to be a little gullible. If someone tells us something relating to the subject then we have a habit of believing it almost without question. It’s how phrases like “size matters” and “hot dog down a hallway” start becoming popular… and it sucks.

There are plenty of sex myths out there we still believe, even now. It won’t take us long to get the answers to them, but because they have been around for so long we think “it must be true!”. Needless to say, they aren’t always. I take a look at the most ridiculous sex myths right here on the blog.

Size matters

Most people with penises are left feeling as though they just don’t measure up. Those with an enjoyment of cock find that they feel size is what leads to pleasure in the bedroom. Sure, this isn’t always the case. However, it is enough of a conversation in pubs and at the bar that we think size is important.

It isn’t. The size of your cock does not relate to the amount of pleasure you can give. You could have the biggest dick in the world and not be able to wield it with enough skill, or you could have a smaller cock and find that you can please your partner with what you’ve got.

There are so many different positions out there to ensure that, no matter how big your dick is or how it is shaped, you can make your partner feel good. It’s all about experimentation, so tell your partner that you want to try new things to increase their pleasure. The chances are that they won’t say no to that!

Sex makes the vagina loose

Out of all of the ridiculous sex myths I’ve heard, this is perhaps the one that people are most likely to believe. For whatever reason, people seem to think that the more sex someone with a vagina has, the looser it gets. After all, over time it’ll be more relaxed. That’s where the whole “hot dog down a hallway” phrase comes from.

Needless to say it is a load of crap. Having a lot of sex doesn’t make the vagina looser. If you are continually putting huge things in there, such as a fire extinguisher, then maybe. But a cock isn’t going to stretch it far enough that it can’t come back from it.

Why? Because vaginas are designed to stretch. If they weren’t, then giving birth would be an impossibility. Even after birth, the difference isn’t always noticeable, and typically things like Kegel exercises can help to retain the ‘tightness’ people crave. So no, having a lot of sex isn’t going to make the vagina looser.

Sex ends with an orgasm

We are far too focused on orgasms when it comes to sex. For a lot of people this isn’t a good thing. When I have been put under pressure to come I just can’t get there. I’d rather let things happen naturally, but a lot of the people you’ll jump into bed with will be focused on the orgasm.

Typically, we have this belief that sex ends when the man reaches orgasm. This isn’t the case. In fact, sex ends when you want it to. This means that both of you or neither of you could have had an orgasm by the time you decide to finish. No orgasm necessary if you are both satisfied with the way that things have done.

If your partner has reached orgasm and decides that this means sex is over but you aren’t happy, talk to them. Talking about sex is the best way to address the issues you have. Believe it or not, a huge number of your problems during sex can be solved by talking. Try opening up and you’ll notice a huge difference.

Men are always ready for sex

One of the most infuriating and ridiculous sex myths out there is that men are always ready and eager for sex. People say that men think about sex every minute, but this is a load of bullshit… as is the thought that men are always rock hard and ready to fuck.

What is true is that men don’t usually take as long to get ready for sex. This isn’t true for every man, however, as some need a little more time to warm up to it. Foreplay is still important for sex, and just because you are in the mood for it doesn’t mean that your partner automatically will be.

Even if the cock is hard it doesn’t mean that they are ready for sex. It is always a good idea to spend a little bit of time on foreplay just to be on the safe side. You can never be turned on too much right?
