Top 6 Sex Myths That Need to Disappear Forever August 31, 2019 – Posted in: Sexuality
With so much information on sexuality available on the interweb these days, you may understandably be finding separating fact from fiction. Sexuality has its fair share of myths that can scare some of you from living your best sex life. Below I address address some of the most persistent myths around sex. My hope is that after you’ve read this post, you’ll have a better understanding of the realities of sex and intimacy.
#Sex Myth No.1 – Sex Lasts 30 Minutes on Average
Yes, in another dimension, the average duration of sex is half an hour. On Earth, though, this is a ludicrous number: the average duration of sex itself – minus the foreplay and after cuddles – is 11 minutes. If it lasts less than that, you might have some erectile problems. If it lasts about 2 minutes, you probably suffer from premature ejaculation. But if you’re able to satisfy your lady for at least 10 minutes, congratulations, you’re perfectly normal.
#Sex Myth No.2 -Men Always Want Sex
This is a common misconception. When people are tired, stressed, suffering from mental health issues, such as depression or have low self esteem, they tend to retreat and not have the desire to be intimate. It is true for all genders.
When I spiral down into depression, sex is the very last thing on my mind. Men want a healthy, emotional relationship, too – granted, some of them. The bottom line is: men can feel tired and not in the mood as often as women.
#Sex Myth No.3 – Big Is Better
No!!!!! This is absolutely not true. There is a saying that there is a lid for every pot, and this is true when it comes to the penis, and indeed vaginas. Bodies come in all shapesand sizes and so do man parts and lady bits. The main thing is how you use it in a sexual relationship.
Porn has led many men to believe they’ve got to have lightning rods in their pants to please women. That couldn’t be farther than the truth: it’s not about the size of your instrument, it’s about how you use it. The normal length of the erect penis is between 9 and 16 cm so stop measuring it and feeling useless. Women don’t care as much about size as you might think as long as you have some wild moves.
#Sex Myth No.4 – Women Don’t Watch Porn
Except they do. They do it a lot. In fact, research has shown that more than 50% of all women n Australia have watched porn. With a variety of porn available online, women are turning to porn in droves. Let’s destigmatise this myth now. Porn online is as divers as our desires and there is always something for everyone.
#Sex Myth No.5 – You Can’t Get Pregnant on Your Period
Again, wrong. Sure, the chances of this happening are lower when you’re in the red district, but they’re not excluded completely. Plus, sperm can survive in a woman’s body for almost a week. Better safe than sorry and use effective contraception.
#Sex Myth No.6 – Masturbation is bad for you
This is probably the biggest sex myth there is.
Masturbation will not send you blind or cause sexual dysfunction, nor is is shameful or bad. Self-love is actually good for your health, lowers blood pressure and stress levels. There is no “normal”. Some people masturbate a lot, some never. It is normal to masturbate when single, or in a relationship. Some people get off watching their partner masturbate. If it makes you happy and feels good, go for it!
Women may find that a sex toy may increase their pleasure. Check out the range at Me and Mrs Jones Adult Toy Store for women, men and couples.

The last word on sexual myths
You can go blind from masturbation, you can’t get pregnant by having sex in the shower or the bathtub, you’ve got to do it every single day, etc. – too many misconceptions and too few people that are willing to drive nails in their coffins. Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet or hear from others.
