Sex Facts and Myths


It’s amazing how many myths continue to exist about sex. So let’s debunk some more.

Sex Burns Major Calories

Estimates are that you burn between 80 0 calories. put that into perspective, you need to burn about 3,500 calories to lose a pound of body weight, so if you were using 0 calories every time you had sex, you could lose one pound if you had sex 35 times. The problem is most people are not having sex for thirty minutes straight. Instead, the average duration of sex is closer to minutes. Guess that bursts a few bubbles.

Women Always Orgasm During Vaginal Sex

Nope. Not all women do. In fact, a study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that 18.4 % of women said intercourse alone led them to have an orgasm. 36.6 % said clitoral stimulation was necessary for orgasm during sex. An additional 36 % indicated that, while clitoral stimulation was not needed, their orgasms felt better if their clitoris was stimulated during intercourse. Toys can be great for this too.

Sex Affects Sports Performance

This theory has been debated for many years, with coaches often telling their athletes to abstain from sex at least 48 hours before big games or competitions. However, a 20 study in the journal Frontiers in Physiology suggests sex has impact on athletic performance and could actually have a positive effect instead.

Male & Female Genitalia Are Totally Different

Most people think that male and female genitals are about as different as can be: penis=male and vagina=female. But even this basic dichotomy is not quite correct: the genitals emerge from the mass of embryonic tissue. For the first weeks of life, the tissue masses develop identically. At about 6-7 weeks, depending on whether the fetus has XX or XY chromosomes (usually), the tissues start to differentiate. One part of the tissue begins to form the clitoris or penis and another forms the labia or scrotum. Another area begins to form into either the testes or the ovaries. This means that physiologically, male and female genitals are made of the same stuff and work in similar ways.

Men Are More Aggressive Than Women

It depends on what you mean by aggression. Men and women are not different in expressing anger and general aggression, but men are more likely to use physical aggression overall. The sexes are more or less the same when aggressing towards one another, but men are larger and, usually, stronger. Men are not naturally "more aggressive" than women, but can use physical aggression more effectively than women can (barring guns and other weapons). This pattern says more about gender, societies, and male physical size than it does about hard-wired human nature.

The Pull-out Method Can Be Used By Itself For Birth Control

The pull-out (or withdrawal) method, also called coitus interruptus, is when the partner with the penis pulls out of the vagina before ejaculation. Planned Parenthood reports that about 27 out of 0 women who use this method get pregnant each year, meaning it’s about 73 percent effective preventing pregnancy in real life. That’s not as effective as condoms, which are about 82-percent effective IRL, or birth control pills, which are about 91-percent effective. Use the pull-out method in combination with another birth control method, folks. Human error happens.

Having Sex Will Cause a Pregnant Woman Go Into Labour

This myth is so pervasive that even doctors will tell their full-term patients to give it a try. But, not does having sex near your due date not start labour, it may actually delay it, according to a study published in Obstetrics & Gynecology. Researchers found that women who were sexually active in the final weeks of their pregnancies carried their babies an average of 39.9 weeks, compared to 39.3 weeks for women who weren’t having any sex.

You Can Tell If Someone Has An STD By Looking At Them

Robert Huizenga, MD, author of Sex, Lies & STDs says that a common sex myth people believe is that you’ll be able to tell if someone has an STD by looking at them. The truth is that many STDs don’t show outward symptoms or may not show until much later. There’s no substitute for getting a medical screening and being totally honest about the results.

A Woman's Vagina Will Show How Many Partners She Has Had

Vaginas can temporarily stretch to accommodate a large object, how else would women ever survive childbirth? However, they don’t stay stretched out. That means, multiple partners, a partner with a large penis, or using large sex toys don’t affect the vagina. How tight or loose a vagina feels depends on the woman’s genetics and the fit between her and her partner.

Interesting facts!
The first time I had a clue about sex was when I was very young and the girl next door and I played Doctor 😷.
She never wore a mask or gloves and she had no experience but I didn't care; she seemed to know what she was doing. 😊❗❗

The vagial fluid is not only used as lubrication but also to eliminate the weaker sperm, which is the male producing ones. Mother Nature's intent to produce more females, in Prehistoric times humans shared all females like most other species!
I had five sisters, among them they had five more girls and only one boy. My wife had one sister and one brother! According to Science, early 80's, this meant most likely that my wife and I would have girls! We had waited 15 yrs to have children.
Being the only son meant that if we did not have a boy that would be the end of my namesake clan, if u will.
I happen to find an article in Playboy, best source of real sex info before the Internet came along! It explained how to have a boy!
With the vagenal fluids elimnating male producting sperm give the female multiple orgasms, which my ex never had, before insemination. This way there would a lot less fluid meaning a better chance to have a boy.
My wife read it and said, Lets try that! When she thinks it's here idea
ROLL WITH IT! Sooooooo for about three months, three or four times a week, we would have masturbation , oral or toys for hours, she would even call me from work and tell me she was masturbating in the ladies room, then penetration, best sex I had in thirty years with her...LOL!
In 1985 a big healthy son!
My daughter-in-law always had problems from day one! They never used any birth control. It took them 5 yrs to have my Granddaughter, in 2019 while they were having breakfast she told them she dreamed of playing with her little brother, she was 8, She said God told her she was going to have a little brother! About a week later they discovered my daughter-in-law was pregnant, in October they had a boy!

Ms. sexyldy1000,

While there are still many myths about sex that people see as facts, some of these myths are borderline.

While yes a vagina will stretch to accommodate a lover of any size, a woman can and does get use to feeling a certain size.

As for the sex and pregnancy myth, I for one think that one is still touted by many in the medical field. I know how my ex viewed it.

Lots of sexual myths you have shared with us here, and that's why I lost so much weight when hubby and I were dating, and first married. Five times a day every day for five years, you really do loose a lot of weight. And hours on end works well when enjoying foreplay and sex it really does work..

Thanks for giving us the update on these sexual myths, I hope you enjoy a Terrific Thursday..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Yes, myths often have some foundation in truth. And I agree the medical profession does perpetuate some of them.

Taking a break from truths and myths - sexual, political and otherwise and adopted a new philosophy - if it feels go do it, if it doesn't don't. But it was a fun read. Thanks

I discovered masturbation once when I was off school sick, it led to about ten trips a day to the bathroom for the rest of the week and I still have my eyesight!
