Learning about sex is something that we don’t do very well in this country. Sure, your parents might give you a book from the ’70s and your gym teacher might give you a lecture about herpes, but the actual process of making the beast with two backs is a little less documented. We often learn about sex secondhand as kids, which means a lot of bad information. Those wrong assumptions linger through adulthood, becoming sex myths that we believe without any good reason. Come with us as we debunk 10 of the most annoying.
Certain Foods Make Semen Taste Better
If you’re a fan of getting oral, you might have heard that eating pineapple will make your semen taste sweet and pleasant, and eating other foods like meat can make it taste worse. That’s why sales of pineapple juice jump so sharply before prom. Sadly, there’s no real scientific basis for this belief. Although the sodium content of different people’s sperm does vary from man to man, you can’t change it through diet. Sorry, guys with awful-tasting baby gravy — you’re kind of stuck with it.
Women Can’t Get Pregnant On Their Period
You should really be using birth control of some form if you’re out there getting it on, but many bros think that they can’t become a dad if their partner is in that time of the month. That’s a myth that has resulted in more than a few surprises, because females are fertile every single day. The thing is, even if a woman is ovulating, sperm can survive in the vagina for as long as a week, and they can fertilize a new egg after you ovulate. Sex during the period isn’t effective birth control.
Big Feet, Big Penises
It’s folk wisdom that if a guy has big feet, he’s also packing some heat in his underwear. Not true. In fact, none of the body parts that people claim correlate to increased length and girth in the genitals have any relation to actual size. That means big noses, big fingers, big forearms, big ears — all worthless. The only body part that affects how big a man’s penis is is his penis. Not that you should be that worried about size anyway, as we’ll get to a little later on.
Women Are Naturally Monogamous But Men Aren’t
One of the most common explanations of the sexual differences between men and women is that men are biologically “wired” to seek out multiple partners and spread their seed, while women choose a single mate to provide for them. This sounds logical but is in fact absolute nonsense. Both genders have about equal desires to sleep around. Females even report that their level of desire for their partner tends to drop after several years of a sexual relationship, spurring them to seek out new meat.
All Women Can Orgasm From Vaginal Intercourse
For a dude, getting to climax is pretty easy. Women, however, have a tougher time, especially from standard penis-in-vagina intercourse. No matter your size or technique, it might not be enough to get your partner off. Several studies indicate that as many as 75 percent of women never have an orgasm from vaginal stimulation alone — they need to supplement it with direct clitoral stimulation. So if your partner needs a little extra help, don’t take it personally — she’s in good company.
Frequent Sex Can Stretch A Woman’s Vagina
Common knowledge says that a young woman’s virginal vagina is very tight, and then after she’s had a few partners of varying sizes it gets looser as she bangs more dudes. Having a baby speeds up this process until it’s all floppy. Right? Not really. Sex has absolutely no effect on a woman’s vaginal tightness — and in fact, frequent sex can exercise the pelvic muscles that surround the vagina and make it tighter! The tissue of the vagina is incredibly elastic, able to spring back from being stretched over and over. Childbirth can certainly fatigue those muscles, which can also get weaker with age (just like every other muscle in the body), but having sex doesn’t have anything to do with it.
Only Women Have Multiple Orgasms
When you bust your nut, it’s over, right? Maybe not. Although climaxing often marks the end of a dude’s performance in bed, it’s possible to have all the pleasure of an orgasm without ejaculating. When you’re close to getting off, slow down and let your arousal subside, then resume the action. With practice, you can have several full-blown orgasms in a row without the refractory period (that’s the scientific term for wanting to take a nap after you get laid). Ladies love this trick.
Men Think About Sex Every 7 Seconds
This commonly-repeated “fact” is trotted out as an explanation for why we’re so horny, but it doesn’t have a lick of research backing it up. If you thought about getting it on every seven seconds, you’d spend at least two hours of every day getting aroused. Amazingly, there have been actual studies conducted on this topic, revealing that the average dude thinks about sex about 19 times a day, or once every 4,500 seconds. That’s a lot less. Women think about sex 10 times a day on average, which isn’t that big a difference, statistically. One interesting tidbit from the study is that men report feeling a “need” for sex more often.
Bigger Penises Are Better
If there’s one thing dudes are dependably insecure about, it’s the size of their equipment. But, for the most part, size doesn’t correlate to sexual pleasure. Sure, if you’re packing a micropenis down there you might have to be more inventive in bed, but satisfying sex comes from emotional rapport, enthusiasm and listening to your partner. On the other end of the spectrum, guys with too much meat down there can bruise their partner’s cervix if they thrust too deep, which doesn’t feel good. To hit the G-spot, it’s more important that your penis be a little curved rather than massive.
Sex Is Good Exercise
This one could have been on our recent debunking of 10 exercise myths, but we put it here instead. You can certainly get hot and sweaty when you’re having sex, but it’s not “exercise” by any means. The average caloric burn from a lovemaking session is 21 calories — that’s less than you’d get from five minutes of gardening, or taking a shower. If you’re getting it on to work out, you should probably consider some more productive form of exercise. However, there are certainly some body benefits to sex — frequent boning can strengthen the pelvic floor and lower your blood pressure.
