Advice is ever-changing. As we learn more things about our bodies (which, let’s face it, we still don’t know everything about), there will be certain tidbits that people might have thought to be true at one point.
Or, it was just hogwash to begin with.
Here are some myths surrounding sex and women.
1. ORGASMS COME FROM VAGINAL INTERCOURSE
Ugh. Why won’t this myth just die already?
The problem is media shows most female orgasms coming from intercourse. The problem is a huge chunk of girls (around 70%) will get most of their happy-Os from clitoral stimulation.
That’s why it’s a good idea to give her at least one orgasm that way before diving in for any male pleasure.
2. IF SHE DOESN’T ORGASM, YOU’RE BAD IN BED
While this can sometimes be true, it’s not the only culprit. There are many reasons why someone (man or woman) can’t reach the finish line.
There’s stress, medication, issues with body image, and so much more.
It can all coil together to put a stopper on things. A girl needs to feel safe and relaxed for fireworks to go off. This doesn’t necessarily mean that trust needs to come from a dedicated partner. But if there are misgivings, her mind will be on that instead.
3. BEING WET IS A FEMALE BONER
While being wet is important if you want to play down there, it doesn’t mean that dryness is directly connected to a pleasure-factor. It’s the same as orgasms – they can be hindered by many things. Medication or age can make things a bit dry, and that’s okay! Just grab some lube and the problem is solved!
4. WOMEN DON’T WANT SEX AS MUCH AS MEN
I would group this in with some other myths…
- Women don’t want as much sex after they’re in a relationship
- They are as sexually adventurous
- Women aren’t as sexually “visual” as men
Blah, blah, blah. These are so not true. Sex-ruts can happen even when you’re single. Being adventurous isn’t tied to gender. Women like porn. I could go on, but you get the idea.
5. WOMEN PEAK IN THEIR 30S
This one came from the Kinsey study done in the ‘60s.
The problem is the data was taken from 20-somethings and 30-somethings. No one over 40 was included. There is actually no peak age.
