A lot of times we hear things over and over about sex and don’t bother to question them. This might be because we tend not to talk with others as openly about sex as we do about other subjects. So many myths about sex deserve our debunking. Read on to learn about a few of the more common myths about sex.
Penis size matters
This is a common and harmful myth. A british study found that 85 percent of women do not care about the size of their lover’s penis. That’s a huge percentage! For some reason penis size is related to some people’s ideas of masculinity, but there is no relationship.
Men are the only ones who experience wet dreams
These dreams, which are sexual in nature, lead to an orgasm during sleep and usually wake us up. It is commonly known to occur with men, but a report put out by the Kinsey Institute showed that approximately 40 percent of women had a wet dream at some point in their life. Several other studies have reported that women experience wet dreams.
Oysters enhance sex drive
Although some studies have confirmed that oysters are aphrodisiacs, none have proved any sexually enhancing qualities. Lab studies showed this in rats, but failed to provide evidence for humans.
Women can’t ejaculate
Previous studies were reviewed by Dr. Zato Pastor that found 10 to 54 percent of women reported experiencing ejaculation during orgasm. This is more than vaginal moisture that can occur–it is a gush or a squirt along with the climax. Ejaculating, or not, are both perfectly fine ways to experience an orgasm.
Women don’t desire sex as much as men
Research has shown that women are just as horny as men. Their sexual desires may be different, though. Society has this idea that women have lower libidos and are wrong when they’re raped or abused. They’re skewed beliefs and untrue. A little bit of the truth can go a long way!
