Okay, so it’s a given that we have all been confronted at one point or another with questions about sex. Whether you knew the answer, pretended you knew it, or had absolutely no clue… it is never too late to learn a little more about the highly discussed three letter word.
So here it goes… five sex myths that are finally set straight. Get out your pen and paper or make a mental note, cause you wont want to forget this…
Myth #1: Men want sex more than women do.
The Verdict: FALSE!
This is a long-lived myth that is completely untrue. Yes, men are usually the ones to initiate sex or to casually bring it up in conversation..but that is definitely not always the case. Trust me, girls talk about sex, think about sex, and have sex just as much as men do…if not more. It used to be socially unacceptable for women to be viewed as “sexual beings,” but the times are changing and women are becoming much more comfortable and confident in the realm of sex. Another reason why it may seem that men want sex more than women is because men are much more mechanical than women when it comes to feelings associated with sex. Often times women group emotions and sex in the same category, so if we are mad, hurt, or annoyed at a guy, we are less likely to want to have sex with him. Guys on the other hand, usually don’t have any problem with separating emotions from sex.
Myth #2: Size Doesn’t matter
The Verdict: FALSE!
Sorry boys, but it’s the truth. Size does matter…A LOT! I mean, come on..let’s be honest. As much as it may not be fair to some, the size of a man makes a huge difference to women…especially in terms of sexual attraction and desire. If you were ever told by a girl that size doesn’t matter…sorry, but they were totally lying to you and were just trying to make you feel better. I’m gonna be real ( call me a bitch if you want), but some body’s gotta be the honest one. A man can be physically attractive, great body, funny, kind, loving, etc…but if their manhood is lacking…there is guaranteed to be some level of a let down. I’m not saying that you can’t please a woman without a huge package..but, you better be really good at “other things” if you are lacking in the size department.
Myth # 3: Men reach their sexual peak at 18 and woman reach theirs at 28
The Verdict: TRUE!
Yes, this information is true and it gives us ladies a great excuse for dating younger men!…haha. Men reach their sexual peak about 10 years earlier than women do. However, just because a man or woman’s hormone levels may be at an all time high doesn’t mean that they are going to have the best sex. Peak hormones and peak sexual performance are not the same thing. My advice is to strive to have the best sex all the time..no matter what age you are :).
Myth #4: The average erection measures 8 inches
The Verdict: FALSE
Don’t stress shorty, that is not an accurate number. Unfortunately, average Joe’s erection only measures 6 inches…not 8. 6 seems to be the magic number and as long as you are close by…you can rest assured that the majority of other guys are right there with you. However, may I point out that they don’t make any 6 inch dildo’s…just saying.
Myth # 5: Having sex before an important event can ruin your performance in the event
The Verdict: FALSE!
Thank God! Whether you are playing in that Championship game or giving the speech of a lifetime, you don’t have to worry about whether or not having sex before the “big day” is going to mess with your performance. This myth has been studied through stress tests and results have shown that 10 hours after sex, you are fully recovered and performance is not effected what-so-ever. There is only an extremely slight dip in performance 2 hours after having sex…but not enough to matter. So next time you contemplate getting down before that ever-so-important event, think again and go for it. You never know, it might even help you out!
