01/8 Common beliefs about sex that are false

Whether you’re a beginner or an expert in the field of sex and intercourse, extra knowledge can never do any harm. Many of us have always had numerous questions regarding se in our mind, which we either overlook or feel embarrassed to ask our close ones about. While there are many things about sex we can learn through experience and/or through external materials, there are certain things that can only be unraveled after the deed is done and the ugly consequences are left for us to bear. That being said, here are 7 common beliefs or myths about sex that are completely false.

02/8 You can’t get pregnant while having sex during your periods

This is the most untrue belief about sex that leads to unplanned pregnancy. Many people believe that whilst on their period, it is difficult for women to become pregnant as the semen ejaculated by the man tends to flow out with the menstrual blood of the women. However, the truth of the matter is that the sperm has the tendency to remain in the female reproductive system for over five days, and therefore if the female starts to ovulate immediately after their period, they can become pregnant.

03/8 You’ll always know when you orgasm

Men and women have a different understanding of an orgasm, however, unless it is obvious, it is possible that both men and women sometimes mistake other outpouring emotions of pleasure for orgasm.

04/8 Women can’t get pregnant if the man ejaculates outside

Well, that’s not entirely true. While timing sure does matter in sex, sometimes, unknowingly, men tend to release or pre-ejaculate small amounts of fluid known as pre-cum, which are followed by the large amount of semen, you claim to spurt out. These pre-ejaculated fluids can get a women pregnant.

05/8 Size matters

No, not really! It is not the size that matters entirely. One must have the right intent, love, passion and emotion while having sex. While the size of the penis may intensify the friction but the true pleasure arises with the right technique, motion and position. Therefore, break away from that belief and the insecurities tied to it.

06/8 You can get pregnant by having oral sex

How can that even be possible? A woman can only become pregnant if and when a man ejaculates into a female reproductive system. While the mouth isn’t any form of a reproductive organ and therefore, getting pregnant is not possible through oral sex.

07/8 Men are always up for sex

Many people, especially women, believe that men are always ready to have sex, which is completely untrue. While men may have a higher sex drive than women, that does not mean they will always be ready for a ride.

08/8 Sex is only for the young

Sex in older people is a taboo in our society. Many people believe that sex is only meant for the young and often express disgust when it involves elderly people. While they may be old and bit weaker than us, doesn’t mean they don’t feel the urge to taste pleasure.
