5 Sex Myths That Are True

Sex is an essential part of any adult’s life. If you’re into a relationship, sex may be the make or break factor. Several studies have shown that when couples have different sexual desires and sexual need, the relationship does not last long. Irrespective of its importance, it’s amazing how many myths people actually believe about sex. The following are the 5 sex myths and their corresponding realities:

Men Always Want to Have Sex

Many women, especially when they are young, are nervous about going into a relationship, because they are constantly attacked with the impression that men are sex-driven freaks, who will never spare any opportunity to get their partners into bed. This false image compels young men as much as it does women. The reality is that anyone’s sex drive, man or woman is influenced by many factors and generalizations rarely ever stick. It’s true that most times young men have a higher sex drive than young women, but the difference is not always as huge as suggested. Most men that want sex will find a meet and fuck local women on popular dating apps like instafuckfriend.com. But dating apps are the least of the problem.

Your Partner expects you to be a Sex God/Goddess

If you have the idea that your partner is more sexually experienced than you are, you may fear that you will fall short of their expectations. But, they are possibly just as nervous as you. Just because someone is experienced than you, does not mean they have a better knowledge about sex. In most cases, everyone is different with different sexual needs, therefore previous experience is not really a big deal.

Sex is for Young People

This is one of the most shocking sex myths. Just because older people do not talk about it as much and they are not featured as sex symbols in the media doesn’t mean that they do not enjoy sex. Contrary to belief, post-menopausal women and older men are not deprived by nature when it comes to their sex lives. Although, sex drive does decline with age, but it does not wither away. What matters most should be about someone’s lifestyle, mentality and habits.

Men Cheat More

This is the common sex myth that men have a greater sex drive than women. But, this myth has been busted a number of times by relationship experts and psychologists. Some studies have revealed that one common reason for this myth is that women are better at keeping their affairs secret.


More Sex Means Better Sex

Quality versus quantity of sex differs at varying times. It’s unrealistic to expect that sex is always going to be mind-blowing and require a high investment of time and energy. Getting stuck in an expectable routine that both partners play out means that sometimes both quantity and quality suffer. We are surrounded by misrepresentation and misinformation about sex. Comparing yourself with the perceptions of other people’s sex lives is always a destructive mode to get into. The only thing you need to know is your own sexual happiness.
