There are countless myths about sex that have been circulating since, well, forever! Some are truly ridiculous (if you masturbate too much hair will grow on your palm), others seem plausible (you can’t get pregnant while on your period), and still others are often believed even though they are totally and completely false! Here are just 8 sex myths that seem to be some of the most prevalent and repeating ones out there.

1. WOMEN DON'T ORGASM THE FIRST TIME
I remember hearing over and over how “horrible” my first time having sex would be. How it would be painful, not at all pleasurable and how I would not have an orgasm until I had much more sex. So imagine my surprise when, despite the uncomfortableness of my “first time,” when I had an orgasm! I had orgasms previously through masturbation so I knew what it felt like and I absolutely had an orgasm during my first sexual experience. So, obviously this is a myth!
2. WOMEN DON’T ORGASM WITH SEX ALONE
While it is true that statistically 85% of all women need clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm, the truth is some women CAN and DO achieve orgasm through intercourse alone. It is a complete myth to say that women “can’t” or “never” orgasm with only sex! While the odds are low, there are still women who can achieve orgasm through intercourse, so let’s not make them mythical creatures.
3. MEN CAN’T HAVE MULTIPLE ORGASMS
The men are “one and done” rumor couldn’t be further from the truth – men CAN have multiple orgasms. They are not usually the same way a woman does – back to back immediate orgasms – but they can have additional orgasms shortly after having one. For example, a man orgasms during sex but his penis does not become limp, he continues stimulation and ejaculates again. That is multiple orgasms for a man, even though it may be 5 minutes in between!
4. WOMEN DON’T REALLY CARE IF THEY ORGASM
This is a myth that I have heard my own friends discuss. The idea that women are into sex for the “intimacy” and not as much for the orgasm, and that they do not really care if they do or not. UMMMMMM, NO! This is a huge myth that I truly hope men do not believe! Women DO care if they orgasm. They WANT to orgasm. They do care, it is just that sometimes their partners do not know how to give them one!

5. PENIS SIZE MATTERS
This is a huge myth, and one that gives men a complex! The idea that women want a huge penis or it is not going to be pleasing is preposterous and untrue! If a man knows how to use what he has to his advantage then the actual size is not as important. Being able to pleasure your partner via fingers and tongue is also very important. So while all men may want to have a huge penis, the truth is most women need a mere 3 inches to have proper internal stimulation and that is way under the national average.
6. WOMEN LOSE THEIR SEX DRIVE AFTER 40
Ummmmm, hello this is SO not true! Sure, we may be busier in our older age and have more responsibility, but we do not lose our sex drive! Hormonal issues may wreak havoc on our bodies, but our libidos often go into overdrive, not underdrive!
7. ALL WOMEN NEED LUBE FOR SEX
I heard a woman in Walgreens the other day telling her friend, “All women need lube for sex, and it is why there are so many different kinds out there.” ALL women need lube? Some women never need lube – ever. Others may need a dab from time to time. However, the idea that ALL women need lube is very untrue. Lube has its time and purpose, but it is not an absolute necessity.
8. ANAL SEX HURTS
Why do people insist on crushing on anal sex? Really? “Oh, it hurts so bad, don’t do it!” The truth is, anal sex doesn’t have to hurt at all! Just like any other sexual activity, if you do it right, it will be pain-free and pleasurable! Anal sex can be uncomfortable for sure, but painful? NO! The myth that anal sex hurts has got to be debunked because it is unconsciously deterring many women from trying it!
