As much as people research on the everyday crisis – relating to troubled marriage, broken homes failed careers or even personal hygiene, what the Internet fails to discuss about, is sex-related issues (and myths). Often, young people (specially teenagers) and lovers fail to adhere to sex advice, relying on porn movies and articles which actually don’t serve many purposes. It serves porn but myths and facts about sex are something which parents (Indians particularly) find it difficult to address openly.
Therefore, here are top 10 advices related to sex myths which should be read and complied by:
1. Female ejaculation is a thing
Myth: If excess fluid comes from vagina, it’s called female ejaculation.
Fact: You maybe just experiencing extra vaginal fluids. Having multiple orgasms pushes more lubrication out of your vagina, making your vagina extra wet.
2. The condom detailing matters
Myth: The little tip at the end of the condom allows extra space for semen collection without breakage.
Fact: Different brands make different fits. That extra space does allow more comfort but trying brands which fit well only make it easier.
3. Female sex education is limited
Myth: Ovary infections are best described in commercials or pharmaceuticals.
Fact: Sex can’t be limited to just romantic imagination. The health of our reproductive organs is equally important as well.
4. HIV is a virus
Myth: A person could contract HIV from vaginal birth, not AIDS.
Fact: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the carrier of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV is much like a virus and AIDS is the syndrome.
5. Infection isn’t porn
Myth: Infection doesn’t matter when you go from A (Anal) to V (Vagina).
Fact: Sex has everything to do with infection. Don’t lick, finger, penetrate, etc, and then stick the same unclean tongue or a toy in other parts of the body.
6. Antibiotics interfere with birth control
Myth: Antibiotics nullify the effects of birth control pills during periods.
Fact: Check those meds before popping. Some antibiotics actually interfere with hormones, while you’re taking birth control pills and cause adverse side-effects.
7. Oral sex can cause Herpes
Myth: “Oral” herpes can spread to genitals as well.
Fact: Even if tested positive, Herpes isn’t always determined. The only way is to trace the frequency of unprotected oral sex.
8. Urinating spreads more bacteria
Myth: Urinating after sex means carrying your partner’s bacteria.
Fact: Urine actually acts as a disinfectant and can prevent Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STIs).
9. Masturbation may prevent Cancer
Myth: Masturbation is unhealthy when not done in moderation.
Fact: As per studies, masturbating at least 21 times a month can lower chances of contracting prostate cancer by almost 33 percent!
10. Keep fresh linen ready always
Myth: Sex means loving your partner irrespective of their hygiene.
Fact: Morning or night, having a fresh set of bed pads is a life saver. Keep the sheets dry so you can pass out without worry!
