Common misconceptions about sex
It's great that there's so much information about sex available online and in real life. But be sure to know the difference between fact and fiction. Here's are some popular myths about sex.
If the woman is on the pill, condoms are not needed.
Birth control pill s do not protect either partner from Sexually Transmitted Infections, only condoms can do that. Therefore, to be protected from STIs, always use condoms, even for oral sex./p>
Sex affects athletic performance
Studies have proven that having sex before a sports event does not affect an athlete's performance. If they are too anxious and restless the night before an event, then sex may be a relaxing distraction. If they are already relaxed or have little interest in sex the night before a big competition, then a good night's sleep is all they need.
It's not an orgasm if there was no penetration
There is no one recipe to achieve an orgasm. It's common for women to require clitoral stimulation, instead of just vaginal penetration, to reach that sweet spot. For some, penetration doesn't cut it at all, and only clitoral stimulation leads to orgasms.
Masturbation makes achieving orgasm more difficult
The biggest myth of them all! Practice makes perfect after all. Frequent masturbation is one way to improve your sex. It helps you become more comfortable with your body and in tune with yourself. You'll start to figure out what you like and dislike in bed.
Sex is great exercise
Sure, things get all hot and sweaty, but people generally aren't active for too long during the act. 30 minutes of sex typically might burn off 85 - 100 calories. As much as it gets your heart racing, not all the sex in world can replace your workout regimen.
