There are many beliefs about sex that are not true, and there are just as many that are falsely labeled as “myth” and they are actually correct. In this blog post I wish to evaluate the most common sex myths. I believe, there are many sexually active adults out there, who does not know about the below listed misconceptions. Let alone the young generation, who has only started exploring their sexuality. When I first started having sex, I remember how many useful information was unknown to me. Nowadays, as an escort, sexuality plays an important part in my life. I think it is safe to say that I gathered enough knowledge to be able to distinguish between misbeliefs and facts.
Some myths are harmless, while on the other hand many myths are dangerous because they can change the way you approach sex, encouraging you to take more risks or feel less satisfied.
So for your safety and sexual satisfaction, here are our top debunked sex myths.
Myth 1: One can get an STD from a toilet seat
Fact: Thankfully, this is untrue for two main reasons, many disease-causing organisms can only survive a short time on surfaces like a toilet seat and STDs are transferred through contact with open orifices or wounds. As far as many experts believe, no one has caught an STD from a toilet seat (unless they were having sex on one). But, don’t let this stop you from washing your hands thoroughly after using the restroom, because you can still catch a cold or coronavirus amongst other illnesses!
Myth 2: Women can’t get pregnant while on their period
Fact: Although rather unlikely, one can still get pregnant as a result of unprotected sex on her period. This is because every woman is different when it comes to when she ovulates and sperm can survive in the female reproductive tract for up to 5 days, giving more of an opportunity for fertilisation after the period too.
Myth 3: Most women can have an orgasm through vaginal sex alone
Fact: Actually, it’s believed that only 30% of women can have an orgasm through vaginal sex alone. This means that you shouldn’t be shy about practising other forms of pleasure through the use of clitoris stimulation, for example. Also, the majority of women have extremely sensitive breasts and nipples and most of them respond well when this area is stimulated properly. Talk to your partner about what works for you in the bedroom, because good sex is all about communicating your needs. And don’t be shy to try out new and unexpected things, such as toys, bondage, role plays etc.
Myth 4: One can only get HIV through sex
Fact: An individual can get HIV through a variety of sexual acts such as oral, vaginal and anal, although one can also get HIV if infected blood gets into his/her body. This can happen in rare cases of a blood transfusion or an infected needle like one that is used for a tattoo or piercing. Women who have sex with women are also at risk for contracting HIV, and the same applies for homosexual men too. So always be careful and take steps towards prevention.
Myth 5: Certain sex positions can prevent pregnancy
Fact: A woman can get pregnant standing up, sitting down, in a head stand, jumping while having sex, you name it. Any vaginal sex where a penis enters the vagina can lead to the risk of pregnancy. Sex positions do not determine or lower the risk of pregnancy. That is why I am often surprised when men ask me to have “just a little” unprotected sex (they will be careful). That puts both of us into risk of unwanted pregnancy or passing STDs around. So my answer (and hopefully other responsible escorts too) always is a firm NO to such propositions.
Myth 6: The average duration of sex is 30 minutes
Fact: The length of sex depends on the couple and the situation, there is no real normal duration. Actually, the commonly desired duration of sex is known to be somewhere between 7-13 minutes long, meaning that good sex isn’t necessarily longer. The famous Coelho book, 11 Minutes got its title based on this finding. It is actually a very good book, so I hope you don’t mind taking a little literature recommendation from me here. 🙂
