15. Young People Do It Best
Oh, those young whippersnappers just seem to have all the fun, don’t they? Well, believe it or not, it is not the young who report having the most meaningful and satisfactory sex. More mature couples often say that their sex lives are much more fulfilling and enjoyable because they have figured out their partner’s rhythm and preferences. They know what each other likes and doesn’t like and they have a more emotional and intimate connection with each other. All of these factors help the sex between them be even better than the sex between younger couples. Besides, youthful people tend to rush.
14. It Takes Sexual Intercourse to Orgasm
Most men wrongly believe that a woman requires vaginal sex and penetration in order to orgasm. The truth is that without clitoral stimulation, your girl likely won’t get her O face on. Either that or she is probably faking it. A woman can totally have an orgasm from just foreplay or even being stimulated on her nipples (also known as a nipplegasm.) Yet most females require their guy to stimulate and excite the clitoris in order for an orgasm to happen. This can be through fingering or oral sex, but once you hit the clitoris, you and she will both know.
13. Marriage Decreases Sex Drive
A lot of men (and women too) tend to think that marriage is a surefire way to live of life of boredom and dullness. Many younger people often see marriage as the way to kill off sexual desire and passion between a couple. Yet if you actually speak with mature couples who are in successful marriages, you will find that they still have a desire for each other, and yes, they do engage in sexual intercourse (even if you don’t want to think about that). It is all about keeping the intimacy alive. Married couples have taken the time to explore, try out new things, and really get to know their partner’s body.
12. Men Think of Sex Constantly
That whole thinking about sex every 7 seconds nonsense is just not that valid. There has been study after study pertaining to this sex myth about guys, and the researchers have concluded that men do not think about sex every 7 seconds. At least, not the average guy. It is true however, that men tend to think about sex more often than women, but girls have sex on their minds regularly as well. On average, a guy was likely to think of sex 19 times a day. For women, that number was 10 times a day. So, the thoughts are there, but not that often.
11. A Woman Can’t Get Pregnant During Her Period
False with a big fat F. Sure, it is less likely that a woman will get preggo during her menstruation, but it is still a possibility. This is because a male’s sperm can live inside a woman for nearly a week, so if she happens to release an egg during that time…hello, bun in the oven! What it ultimately comes down to is education and protection. We need both men and women to be aware of how sex really works and what they can do to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Nowadays there are so many forms of contraception out there, from birth control pills, injections, and intrauterine devices. Condoms, too!
10. Condoms Ruin Sex
There is this common misconception among men that wearing a condom will make sexual intercourse unenjoyable for both the guy and the girl. Well, maybe you just need to be using the proper size and type. There are loads of varieties out there, from heated, ribbed, flavored, and so on. Plus, using some form of protection is highly recommended because unwanted pregnancies are the worst. There is also the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Most men are actually using condoms that are the wrong size, so speak to a professional (or research yourself) and get properly equipped! It will be worth it.
9. Men Need to Ejaculate to Feel Sexual Satisfaction
If you make ejaculation your primary goal during sex, you will be disappointed. A guy does not need to come every time he has sex. And this really doesn’t have anything to do with the performance of your girl, so if she is thinking that it is her fault you didn’t ejaculate, assure her otherwise. Some men do not come during sexual intercourse and that is okay. In fact, it is normal. If you are engaging in foreplay with your woman and she is totally turned on, it is perfectly fine that you aren’t coming or having an erection. Focus on her pleasure!
8. Some Men Have it, Others Don’t
If you are one of the many men who think that being great in the sack is a natural gift, then think again. Having great sex can be learned. Moreover, many people get better as time goes on. That is why the myth about young people having the best sex is totally false. As we mature, we learn what we like, and when we develop an intimate relationship with someone, we learn what gets them going. This helps us to have some of the best sexual experiences of our lives. So if you feel that right now you aren’t performing to your best potential, take heart. These things take time!
7. Foot Size Indicates Penis Size
We are not sure where this age-old belief came from. Have you ever heard: “You know what they say about guys with large feet…?” Well, there really is no link between foot size and penis size. Seriously, there have been studies and surveys done about this, and scientists have not found any correlation between the shoe size a guy wears and the size of his junk. So no matter your feet, you can disregard them because your penis is not dependent on that. In fact, rather than focusing on size, think more about your technique in bed. That will prove more fruitful!
6. Doing it in a Pool is Safer
A woman can still get pregnant if she has sex in a body of water. There is absolutely no safety net when you have sexual intercourse in a pool or hot tub. Even so, a girl can’t get pregnant from merely swimming in water that a guy has ejaculated in. Sperm are tiny little guys, but they can’t just swim up into a girl’s business. The guy has to come inside her. Even so, there are way too many people (especially younger individuals) who think that they are immune from sperm and consequences if they are floating in water. WRONG!
5. Foreplay Without an Erection is Failure
Guys, if you are getting it on with your girl pre-sexual intercourse and she is really loving it, then just focus on that. She is feeling pleasure and she is getting turned on and you probably are too. Just because you aren’t having an erection, that does not mean that there is something wrong with you. Some guys will have one, and others won’t. It really doesn’t matter and the odds are that your lady won’t mind. As for erectile dysfunction, you don’t always need to turn straight to Viagra. There could be other ways to get you going that aren’t medically-related. It’s all about finding what works for you.
4. Size Matters
The size of your penis will not determine how good the sex is. It is more about skill and technique than it is size. Besides, if your girl has a not-so-big vagina, a large penis is going to be pretty awkward and uncomfortable. So guys, please stop comparing your penis size to that of other dudes. Sex is not like it is in x-rated videos, and most girls do not have a size preference. Rather than thinking about your penis size, turn your focus to how you can use what you’ve got to make your girl happy. Learning each other’s style and rhythm is much more important.
3. Oral is Safer Than Vaginal
Sure, you won’t get a girl pregnant from having oral sex with her, but you are still exchanging bodily fluids in a very intimate manner. This does count as sex as far as most medical professionals are concerned. There is also the very real threat of contracting a sexually transmitted disease, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. While getting an STD does not have to be the end of the world, it is something that needs to be taken seriously. With the right precautions, you can bypass all of that drama. If you are unsure as to whether or not you or your partner has an STD, get tested!
2. Two Condoms Means Double the Protection
Please pay attention to this one. Wearing more than one condom is a really bad idea. First of all, it will probably be kind of uncomfortable. Secondly, this actually reduces the amount of protection you and your sexual partner have! This is because the two condoms can rub against each other, and that friction increases the chances that the condom will tear and break. And we know what a broken condom means. So just use one condom, but make sure that it is the appropriate size for you. Ask about any birth control your sexual partner is using as well.
1. Most Women Don’t Feel Pain
Men, you may think that a lot of women really love sex and it just feels so good, but remember that there is a penis penetrating her vagina! That is bound to produce a least a bit of discomfort, and not just the first time around! The truth is that about 30% of women report experiencing some kind of pain either during or after sexual intercourse. This is normal, but it is good to know. It is best to have an open and honest conversation with your sexual partner about this, and get to know what feels good for both of you.
