Sex and desire have always been seen as very important parts of human life but most of us tend to ignore the safety and healthy bedroom rules for a quick, unplanned, and steamy session of sex.
Dr. Barry Buffman, a Board Certified urologist and the director of the Los Angeles Boston Medical Group, has given ten top sex myths that are most common among the male community.
The first myth concerns the belief that a woman will not get pregnant if a guy ”pulls out” before ejaculation.
Men do not always know when ejaculatory fluid begins to seep out – and even ahead of a perceptible orgasm, pre-ejaculate (which includes sperm) is released and is enough to get a woman pregnant.
The second myth concerns thinking about someone else during the act, which is a bad thing to do.
A large part of the sexual experience starts with your brain, not your body, and sometimes your brain can wander. If you are committed to your lady, and your relationship is in a good place, it’s okay to think about Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox every now and then.
The third myth is the belief that premature ejaculation only affects young men.
Some men do find that premature ejaculation begins at the onset of sexual maturity, but plenty of men also find it to be an issue later in life. In fact, premature ejaculation affects 30 per cent of men at sometime in their lives.
Often, early ejaculation in men who are in their 30s or older is a co-symptom of erectile dysfunction or fatigue, poor cardiovascular conditioning, depression, anxiety, or neurological symptoms.
The fourth myth is about the belief that oral sex is safer than vaginal sex.
From teenagers to former President Bill Clinton, oral sex seems to have the stigma of a “free pass” as far as sexual relationships go. Yes, it does count as sex, and yes, you can get a sexually transmitted disease from oral sex.
In addition to that, penis size is in no direct relation to the amount of satisfaction that can be experienced with sex. Moreover, a man’s readiness for sex may be influenced by factors such as diet, sleep, health, stress, medical conditions, self confidence, and relationship disharmony.
