Sex, Sex, Sex…Kind of a big deal, right? A big time of our adulthood is spent discussing, talking and engaging ourselves about this topic. As humans, we are pretty shy talking about sex and hardly know anything about it. What’s worse are those awful myths always get brought up which create a huge misconception for millions of people.
So, before masturbate because you’re thinking about sex, here are 7 of the most popular, yet deliberately awful myths about sex that you and everyone else needs to stop believing right now.
7 Popular Myths About Sex
1. Big Shoes = BIG Penis
OKAY! Let me be honest here, there is no relation between the shoe size a man wears and the size of his penis. You’ve been bamboozled by someone that tall men with big feet and shoes have a large penis.
So, the next time you see someone wearing a size 14 shoe, instead of guessing…umm that must be a 12-14 incher dude…think normal. Unless that kind of thing makes you happy.
2. Picking a Partner
A series of studies conducted in 37 different countries across the globe shows that picking partner is not actually based on sexual performance. When it comes to women, they look for a man who is financially secure and will better be able to raise their children along with creativity and ambition.
On the other hand, men look for characteristics such as youth or something that symbolizes fertility.

3. He’s a Man…Must be Ready for Sex
A study conducted by Nobre P, et al. Journal of Sex Research in 2006 tells that most of the women think that men are always ready for sex when in reality they are not always feeling it. They tend to develop intimacy and an emotional relationship first.
As a matter of fact, if a man thinks of being ready for sex all the time, he is more likely to suffer from erectile issues as compared to those who don’t.
4. A woman’s vagina becomes loose if she’s promiscuous
Probably the worst misconception of them all! There is a very little evidence that a woman’s vagina can permanently stretch after a sexual intercourse. Irrespective of her sexual partners, a woman’s vagina doesn’t change its shape, size or color, except for when she gets older.
Dr. Sari Locker goes on to say:
It’s a myth that a woman’s vagina becomes permanently stretched out from having sex with a man with a large penis. After each sexual encounter, the vagina contracts to its original size, and it has no lasting stretching.
Another study published in Human Reproduction back in 2006 tells that the vaginal anatomy has been poorly studied.
The fact here is that a vagina comes in all colors, sizes, and shapes.
5. Female Ejaculation is Fake or Forced
Many of us still have the odd belief that a woman’s ejaculation is either fake or it’s forced. A UK-made porno back in 2014 banned the female ejaculation, but not for males.
A study tells that approximately 40% of the women experience emission of urine when they reach an orgasm and this is involuntary. Another study that was published in New Scientist tells that this squirting, in some way, helps in reproductive function.
Overall, it doesn’t affect every woman, as you often see in pornographic content. It’s same as male ejaculation but the timing might be delayed.

6. Marriage is a Sex Killer
Absolutely NOT! This is a phobia, mostly among men that once you’ve entered the married life, you won’t see her naked again. This is just awful thinking. Multiple studies reveal that married couple has more sex drive, they have sex more frequently and have a higher level of satisfaction.
So, kick that bull crap out of your mind.
7. No Sex After 60
Another misconception is that there is no sexual activity after the age of 60. No matter what you think, this is wrong.
The fact here is, between the ages of 60-80, approximately 60% of the men and 64% of the women are satisfied with their sexual function. Even though the activity is reduced with increasing age but the level of satisfaction remains high.
