Describe the problem

Now that ‘Sex Talk’ is officially on the table, let’s start by being frank: There’s a whole lot of lies being spread about sex. While most are funny and (kinda) harmless, there are many that will get you straight up dead. We’d like to prevent that, and yes, you ARE welcome.

Segment #1

  • Sex and Pregnancy
    • FemGuide | The Top 10 Most Popular Sex Myths You Must Know
      • You cannot get pregnant during your first sexual encounter Your body does not know if it is your first or five hundredth sexual encounter. If a healthy sperm meets a healthy eggs, pregnancy will occur.
      • You cannot get pregnant if you have sex in water There is a tiny risk that some water might dilute the sperm to prevent pregnancy, but this risk is very small. Remember that a man’s penis is deep inside a woman’s vagina during sex, so it is unlikely that enough water would enter this area to act as a reliable form of birth control.
  • Sexual Urges
    • CarryFitness.com | Top Myths About Sex
      • Men have more sexual urges than women
      • Guys may have a reputation for always thinking about sex, but, just like all stereotypes, that’s not necessarily true.
      • Though many men would have you believe they’re ready to go 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the truth is that men experience daily fluctuations in libido, as do women.
  • Contraception

      • Two condoms are better than one – In this case two is not necessarily better than one. In short, one condom does the job. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), condoms when used consistently and correctly are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of STDs, including HIV. Each latex condom manufactured in the U.S. is tested for holes before packaging. Before using a condom it’s still a good idea to inspect to check the expiration date and make sure there has been no damage. In most cases, when people using condoms get pregnant or infected with and STD, it’s NOT because the condom broke; it’s because they either did not use the condom correctly, or they did not use it the whole time they were having sex.

Segment #2

  • Planning Sex
    • iVillage.com |  The Top 10 Sex Myths (Only 2 Are True!)  
      • If you have to plan sex, and it isn’t spontaneous, something’s wrong. Heaven help your partner if you believe this one. Desire might well tap you on the shoulder in the early stages of a relationship, but the hormones that fuel the tapping disappear after about 18 months. Well, if you’re lucky actually; plenty of couples find desire lowers dramatically after about nine months. But don’t panic. It doesn’t mean you’ll never fancy each other again; it just means that you need to keep reminding your body and brain how much you enjoy sex. Spontaneous sex is usually good sex. But planning a sex session — anticipating it, looking forward to it — this makes for pretty good sex as well.
  • No Sex Because of the Headache
    • Sify.com | Top 10 sex myths
      • I can’t darling, I’ve got a headache – Have you ever used the old headache excuse, or been denied some loving action because of one? Well, we have a cure for her sore head because sex has medicinal properties. When women have sex, endormorphins are released into her body, which in turn relieves pain. Therefore getting under the covers should help ease a woman’s headache.
  • Bathroom STD’s
    • YourTango.com | Top 10 Myths About Safe Sex And Sexual Health
      • Sexually transmitted diseases or infections can’t live outside the body for a long period of time—especially not on a cold, hard surface like a toilet seat. Plus, they aren’t present in urine, anyway (it’s usually sterile), so the chances of you catching one from whoever used the bathroom before you are slim to none, says Dr. Yen. What you do need to worry about, however, is what may seem like benign skin-to-skin or mouth-to-mouth contact. Kissing, for example, can spread herpes (and deeper kissing can even spread oral gonorrhea and chlamydia, Dr. Yen warns), while skin rubbing together can pass infections such as genital warts, herpes, scabies, and pubic lice.
  • Masterbation
    • Lifestyle Panache | Top 5 Sex Myths of All Time
      • Masturbation is unhealthy and reduces sperm count – This is so not true. Doctors say that masturbating regularly is an healthy alternative to sex. It has got nothing to do with sperm count. Also, many people think that it makes one lose interest in sex. That is again a myth to laugh at. Sex should be on your mind for it to be exciting as ever.
