6 Sex Myths Debunked

Dr Yvonne Fulbright, founder of Sexuality Source Inc, breaks some more myths on sex.

Myth 1:
Viagra is 100 per cent effective
Popping the blue pill is not the effective path to an amorous evening. Fulbright emphasises that men bearing this notion needed to think again because a desire component is needed for males to become sexually aroused and attain erection. So if you are “not in the mood”, there is little that the magic pill can do.

Myth 2:
Virgins have hymens
The presence of a hymen is a popular indicator of a woman being a virgin, and it’s absence, a sure sign of intercourse. However Fulbright debunks the myth saying that this might not be true for all women – girls are born with hymens of various sizes and openings. Some might appear to have no hymen at all.

Also physical activities such as bicycling, horseback riding, gymnastics, etc. can stretch the hymen and even break it. Hence the hymen is not an indicator of “virtue”.

Myth 3:
Withdrawal is birth control
Fulbright says pregnancy could occur any time unprotected intercourse was indulged in, whether or not the male had climaxed. A bit of sperm leaks out of the penis even before ejaculation. Also, if a man ejaculates close to the outside of the vagina, the sperm can swim up the vagina, resulting in conception.

Thus, according to Fulbright, withdrawal is not recommended as a form of birth control, especially for males who are sexually inexperienced.

Myth 4:
Oral sex is safe
Another misconception on the list is that oral sex does not put people at risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Though the possibility of contracting HIV through a fellatio is still under debate, there is still risk of catching other STDs, even if the male does not ejaculate in your mouth.

Organisms such as chlamydia and gonorrhea are present in the pre-ejaculate that will cause infections. There is risk of a herpes infection as well as syphilis.

Myth 5:
You can’t get pregnant if you aren’t ovulating
As regards to thoughts that women can’t get pregnant if they aren’t ovulating, the expert said that it was not true. A normal menstrual cycle is of 28 days, however some women experience irregular cycles. The first day of your cycle is the first day of your period. You produce an egg on day 14 of a 28 day cycle.

A sperm can live for two days inside you. So theoretically, you can have safe sex till day nine of your cycle. For this method to be effective, you have to have very regular cycles. Periods can be irregular due to various physiological as well as psychological

Myth 6:
Contraceptives protect against STDs
Fulbright debunked the myth that contraceptive pills protects against STDs. The expert said that such pills provide protection only from pregnancy, adding that it’s the condom that can protect against STDs when sexually active.
