Common Myths About Sex Debunked - Infographic

In a world that is ruled by stereotypes, it’s no surprise that myths and misconceptions are quite common almost in any aspect of everyday life.

Having settled in our minds, they affect our choices, behaviors and relationships with others.

Most of the time, we don’t bother ourselves with wondering whether these myths are true or not as we hear them over and over. So, we assume that there is some basis behind them even though in most cases there is not. I bet you will be really surprised to learn that some popular notions you probably believe in are not true at all.

Sex & relationships is undoubtedly one of the most widely discussed topics among the people of different ages, which makes it a fertile ground for all kinds of myths and misinformation. We all have heard statements like “size matters” or “men always want it,” but only a few of us know that there is no actual evidence behind most popular beliefs like these.

No matter who you are, how old you are and where you are from, you probably believe some of the common myths about sex. Well, it’s time to get rid of these misconceptions, some of which may actually be ruining your relationships, and turn to facts!
