MYTH: You can’t get pregnant if…
a) you “pull out”
b) woman is on your period
c) woman is on top
Fact is, all of those are false! You can get pregnant during your period. You canget pregnant if the woman is one top and you have a high chance of getting pregnant using the “pull out” method. Practice safe sex by using any form of contraceptive you choose – be that the pill, condoms, or other types of contraceptives.
MYTH: Vaginas loosen if you have a lot of sex.
Nope! The vagina is a muscle and has muscle memory, which means it shrinks back down after sex. As a woman becomes more aroused, the vagina reacts by expanding and becoming longer so that penetration is easier – it has nothing to do with how much sex a woman has!
However, your pelvic floor can be affected by things like childbirth, and if you are worried about the strength of your vagina you can exercise it! Use kegel exercisers 3 times a week to help strengthen your pelvic floor. (Tip: Doing this can lead to better sex and orgasms!)
MYTH: People with disabilities don’t have sex.
On the contrary, people with disabilities and other chronic illnesses can lead just as full and exciting sex lives as anybody else. With the increase of products available on the market, there’s a lot out there to help people of all kinds – from sex swings to positioning devices, all designed to help put you in position and make sex easier and more fulfilling.
MYTH: You can use any toy for anal play.
Please no! There are toys that are specifically designed for use in the anal region – and there’s a pretty big distinction! Anal toys all have a flared base that prevents them from slipping up into the anus and disappearing. If this happens to you, sometimes the only way to get the item out again is by a visit to the doctor, and no one wants that.
MYTH: Certain foods can get you in the mood.
This myth has probably been around the longest out of any of them. Some cultures said the rhino horn would cause virility in males, while others claim oysters really get you in the mood. Unfortunately, studies have shown no effects from these popular aphrodisiacs. That being said, if you had an erotic experience with a certain food, eating it again can cause feeling of arousal at the memory. That’s almost the same thing!
MYTH: Sex alone can bring women to orgasm
This myth is a half an half. Sex alone can bring some women to orgasm, but only a small percentage. Fact is, around 80% of women require clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm, and sex alone usually doesn’t cut it. Use fingers or a small vibrating toy to offer stimulation to the clitoris and increase a woman’s chance of orgasm tenfold! She’ll thank you for it.
That’s it for now! Until next time lovelies!
