I saw an old thread that I thought was really interesting, so I decided to start a new one. What sexual myths do you remember hearing, that people really believed? The most outrageous, the ones you disliked the most, the ones your parents or grandparents really believed? Let's get it started in here...

I'll start, with all the ones I can remember hearing from someone I respected at one point or another in my life. (I guess a lot of these are generalities, as opposed to out-and-out myths. Nonetheless, they're pretty unfortunate things for people to believe.):

male masturbation is normal, female masturbation is disgusting

condoms don't do a good job of birth control or STD prevention

intercourse for the first time is supposed to hurt

women don't enjoy intercourse, men don't like to kiss

men like sex for physical reasons, women like sex for emotional reasons

when it comes to sex, men can't always control themselves -this applies in cases of forced sex as well

all guys really want from girls is oral sex, if they don't get this, she is mostly worthless in their view

any sex not in a committed, longterm, in-love type relationship is immoral

girls or women who've had sex a lot have larger/looser vaginas

people's races/the size of their feet determine the sizes of their genitals

what I call the "that girl is having sex with that guy, therefore she must be easy/I will try to sleep with her too" mentality

men won't respect women who've been with a lot of guys, and women who have lots of sex are generally doing it b/c they're trying to get a boyfriend/have low self-esteem issues.

porn/voyeurism/exhibitionism is inherently sick and perverted and there must be something wrong with women who watch porn/are curious about sexuality in a general sense.

women who like other women do so for emotional reasons, and not for physical attraction. women can be bisexual, but men cannot.

***
Okay, I guess I'm done exercising the demons for now. But I genuinly think some of this sociocultural stuff is interesting. I would like to dedicate this post to mom/dad, and all the other wackos from small-town, religiously conservative midwest USA.

I'm gonna tell you some others myths than I've heard but that I didn't particularly believed in well except one (I have to be honst) which has been clarified by Miz S the other day. But really we're here to learn so it's no shame.

A virgin cannot have STD.

You cannot be pregnant when you have sex for the first time.

There's always supposed to be bleeding on the first time or if not, she's not a virgin.

STD screenings is for women only.

Everyone women who is a virgin has a hymen.

Homosexuals men have more STDs than other people.

A girl who has had a lot of partners is into casual sex and therefore should almost make out with people who ask her.

The size of a men's feet or height determine his penis size.

Girls who have sex on the first date are slut. (sorry for the word I don't know of a more appropriate word to use)

Masturbating too often is bad for you.

And of course the ultimate the looser/tighter vagina thing like you said : a virgin has a tighter vagina than people who's had sex before. I'll be willing to bet a lot of people believe in this thing, adults included.

I guess that's about it for right now.

-having sex in water prevents pregnancy from occurring

-a person can get addicted to masturbation so you shouldn't do it too much

-you can be pregnant and still have your period

-shellfish/chocolate/pumpkin pie are aphrodisiacs

-having labia that are too large is disgusting

-sexuality is rigid, i.e. you can't identify as heterosexual if you're a female but still be attracted to women, or any variation thereof

-anal sex is a good alternative to PIV sex because it can't result in pregnancy

-having a "tight" vagina is better than a "loose" one

-a doctor can figure out by looking at you whether you've had sex or not.

-using tampons means you've lost your viginity (if female)

_You can't get pregnaunt the first time

__You could get pregnaunt through oral with the breasts(I was little and only knew about oral then)

___If you were under 19, you couldn't get pregnaunt.

_____Only a man and woman could have sex.

______That women could only have sex if a man wanted sex(Yep, I was one of those girls who found her papa's Playboy magazines in the back of the truck)

Y'know, my first boyfriend made me fall for that one. I wish I'd known better.

A really fun one: douching with Coke will prevent pregnancy.

Well that make me think of something.

In the past, women used to think putting toothpaste in your vagina protected you against pregnancy.

Males couldn't masterbate.

Men couldn't feel things during sex.

One thing not exactly related to sex, but I seriously believed this when I was little: if you kissed someone, you were automatically married.

some other jems:
- maturbation is wrong
- douching after unprotected sex will wash away the sperm
- bisexuals just really, really like sex (I actually heard a guy say this last Friday, and was thisclose to delivering the verbal smackdown)

amawesome - (adj.) a combination of 'amazing' and 'awesome,' usually by someone who has tied on a few too many. Ex: No, dude, listen! I like, luv ya man! I mean, you're like, amawesome!

hmm... "I'm not bi, I'm greedy."
?

i'm confused -that a joke?

I will posit that the bisexuals I've known (and I might include myself -but I've only made out with girls) do /tend/ to like and be comfortable with some level of sex. whether it's moreso than other people, i don't know.

Ones either my parents believed or tired to make me believe:

The only time to have sex is within marriage.

Almost NOBODY ever has sex outside of marriage-or the few people who do are either bad people or all evil and have STDs.

Bisexual men in particularly are more likely to give me an STD.

There is no such thing as emotionally healthy sex that isn’t “making love”

Kinky sex is less emotionally fulfilling/healthy then vanilla sex (in practice I find the opposite to be true, when don correctly it can be like combining the intimacy of love-making with trust building type exercises-it requires and encourages the growth of trust in a relationship when done correctly and conceptual and people who don’t find that are most likely engaging in unsafe play)

This is one I got from a federal sex education guidelines pamphlet on the show Penn & Teller’s: Bullshit on abstains based education. Our government issued a pamphlet stating: “Sexual activity outside the context of marriage is likely to have harmful psychological and physical effects. A mutually faithful, monogamous relationship in the context of marriage is the expected standard of human sexual activity” Doesn’t the word standard imply that’s what most people do-most people average significantly more then 1 sexual partner in a lifetime (I believe the number is 8.5) Our taxes paid for this brainwash! The myth is that absences only education works-in reality it dose more harm then good because it keeps kids in the dark about how to protect themselves shouldn’t they decide to be come sexual active.

Bisexualism isn’t real and eventually they will figure out what they are (I’ve herd this one form gay people also)

My response when gay or straight people say “Bi’s are just greedy” is “no were not, you just too goddamn picky” or “no were not, your just to shallow to realize how arbitrary it is to eliminate half the population in your search for you soul mate for the simple arbitrary reason they you don’t like a part of their anatomy”

That, if I'm not mistaken, is actually the text from the abstinence only legislation.

Can't say that I'm surprised. I remember reading once that during the Great Depression era, Lysol was used as a douching product to prevent pregnancy. If I remember correctly, it also in some cases led to some pretty nasty chemical burns. Yet another example of how desperate times can lead to desperate measures.

In addition, Lysol was used to prevent odor and advertised as such. It was used up until World War II, as well.

Advertisements:
1928
1948

You can read more about it (with pictures!)at the Museum of Menstruation:

hmm..

-you cant get pregnant if you have sex standing up.

-"you can't marry anyone you know from your childhood" some girl in my second grade class told me that.

-a condom will prevent all stds and theres no possible way to get pregnant.

-boys only carry condoms.

-making out in movie theaters is only for "fast" girls. (mom told me that).

-PDA means youre insecure.

-a vagina will rip open and bleed and you'll need a towel to mop up the blood. (thank you seventeen magazine.)

-periods are completely disgusting and shouldnt be discussed.

-girls dont masturbate.


thats all i have right now.

These are things that I have heard that I don't see listed yet. Most of them are pretty ridiculous, but when knowledge of sex is so shaded, it's no wonder that these myths even come into being.


It takes a strong substance like alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to kill sperm.

You can't get pregnant when you're on your period.

A man can't enjoy sex with a condom on. (I'm guilty on this one.)

If a couple is infertile, it is automatically the woman's fault.

Being drunk during the act of intercourse will protect you from pregnancy.

Your "fertile day" is always 14 days into your cycle.

All vaginas are pink. All areolas are pink.

All male penises are straight. All male erections are perfectly vertical.

Condoms always effectively protect you from herpes as long as they don't break.

Condoms break 1/3rd of the time.

Condoms have microscopic holes that allow sperm to pass through. (Jesus.)

Having sex in a certain position will protect you from pregnancy.

Beating yourself up after sex will halt implantation/fertilization. (wtf?)

If the girl has an orgasm, she cannot get pregnant. (When really, the opposite is true.)

You can only get pregnant if you truly, deeply want it to happen.

You cannot get pregnant from a rape unless you truly, deeply wanted it to happen. (Grr. Some people need brain transplants.)

Contributed by my wonderful soulmate and life companion: If you jump up and down afterwards, the sperm will fall out and you won't get pregnant.

You know... kinda like when you take off the top cracker on an Oreo and shake it upside down a little bit till the calories fall out.

- if you have sex on your period/in water/standing up, you won't get pregnant, as well as jumping up and down will stop sperm from moving.

- Only girls can pass on STDs

Not one that gets passed around much in the states, but my friend from...well, I forget where in the world she was from, but she said that in some parts of the world, they believe having sex with a virgin will cure HIV/AIDS.

The penis and vagina only have to be in the same room for the woman to get pregnant. (my thoughts when I was about five)

Bisexuals just can't make up their minds. (what people tend to tell me when I tell them I'm bi)

People who are into BDSM are rapists/sex criminals/perverts. (what my mom told me once)

Watching porn makes a girl a slut. (I use the word only because it's a direct quote that I've heard other people say.)

It is demeaning and/or inappropriate to engage in oral sex.

Guys always want people to go down on them but girls never want people to go down on them.

Sex can only happen if the couple loves each other.

For that matter, sex can only happen between two people.

Having sex makes you married. (another me-when-I-was-little one)

Scary how many of these I could come up with when I tried...

It will always hurt bad and bleed the first time a woman has sex (No, and no, for me)

Virgins are always super-tight (Again, no for me--my boyfriend at the time even asked if I'd lied about my virginity because I seemed "kind of loose"!)

All men enjoy receiving oral sex.

HIV/AIDS is a "gay" disease passed into our society when gay men started having sex with women (I can't remember where I heard this, but I'm pretty sure it was actually in some magazine article a couple of years ago.)

And I've heard my fair share of the above, too. Bah!

Well, in middle school, absolutely EVERYONE was positive that giving oral sex and swallowing would immediately cause you to become pregnant.. I believed that one for a LONG time.

Also, being raised in a Christian school and getting sex ed from those teachers, I was taught many things that weren't true..

I think the worst one was that condoms didn't work. Nothing was mentioned about birth control.. the message was basically that if you have sex you're dirty and you'll be pregnant.

And they wonder why so many women find themselves pregnant without planning it...

Not getting circumsized is unsanitary.

If you don't shave, a guy will never want to go down on you.

If you say no to intercourse, it is expected that you will offer oral sex instead.

Condoms are a "mood-killer".

Having sex before marriage will guarantee you an STD.

It is okay to tell other people about someone else's sex life as long as what you are saying is true.

Nice guys never want to date non-virgins and/or can't respect them.

All forms of BDSM are actually abuse.

(The truly amazing part is that I heard all but one of these rumors from the same source.)

Here are a few I heard growing up. While I heard most of them in high school I knew of some people who believed this crap and were well into adulthood.

Having intercourse:
-makes your hair grow
-changes the shape of a woman's butt
I found that these were mostly spread by those who were insecure and eager to name the town sluts for their own satisfaction

Oral sex:
-stretches your lower lip forward so it extends noticeably past your upper lip
Same as above

Receiving anal sex:
-permanently alters the way you walk
-leaves telltale circles in your underwear -not to be confused with circles left by alien spacecraft

Masturbation:
-makes your eyes bug out -If this were true how many of us would look like Cookie Monster by now???
-will immediately give you arthritis if you do it over 10 times

Insane methods of STI prevention and/or cures:
-washing genitals in vodka
-forcing rubbing alcohol into the urethra with a turkey baster
-salt -Though I don't recall anyone saying what to do with it [Confused]
-having sex with a virgin
-jumping into the ocean

Insane methods of contraception:
-drinking hot Pepsi
-sneezing
-once again jumping into the ocean or any other handy body of salt water
-douching with warm beer -Wait...WHAT??!

Miscellaneous:
-Too much sex can make you gain weight. -Oddly this one didn't apply to males.
-Boys must lose their virginity by the age of 16 or else they will turn out to be homosexual.
-Douching with vinegar tightens the vagina. -Yurgh...gross

The shellfish thing is a vestigial remnant of classic concepts of sympathetic magic. often enough, herbs and various foodstuffs were thought to have positive benefits on those parts of the body that they resemble. Liverwort being a prime example.

what does shellfish have to do with sex organs, you ask? Next time you eat an oyster or a mussel, pull it out of the shell and spread the gills.

I've actually sat here and laughed out loud at a lot of these.

Here are some that I've heard or been told:

-masturbation, for men, will make you go blind
-you can just "tell" when you conceive a baby, right after he ejaculates (actually it takes about 2 days for the sperm to even get to your egg..interesting...)
-having sex with your legs in the air your baby will be a boy(a V shape), and having sex with your knees on the bed (a ^ shape) your baby will be a girl
-masturbation, regardless of sex, is just digusting and sick
-any women who look at porn are considered gross or "messed up"

And my favorite, which isn't a myth, but still:

-a girl can sleep with a ton of guys and be called a slut, but a guy can sleep with a ton of girls and he's the hottest thing on campus

Ahh..the irony..

Here are some that arent very exciting...

~Men that have lots of sex are pimps/Women that have lots of sex are whores.

~Homosexuals have more sex that Straight people

~Women with long labia are whores

~Women with camel toes have the best looking vaginas(qoute from ex bf)

~guys with longer penises are better at giving women pleasure

~Yuo are not allowed to wear a white dress on your wedding unless you are a virgin

~Giving head too much makes you fat

~A man's penis is as long as the tip of his pointer finger to the tip of his thumb when fingers are spread out

"if you have sex when your pregnant you will poke the baby

~Overweight men have small penises


Thats all I got...I love this topic [Smile]

i would like to add that that was 100% a joke. now onto myths. or rather my critic of your myths starting with, well lets say, homosexuals have more sex... while it may seem sexist men (in general) have higher sex drives (what happens between lesbians is between them) but as a bisexual man i know from experiance that while in a gay relationship i have way more sex... onward... men who dont want to go down on hairy snatch, might sound lude but its not nesisaraly untrue, i know its not my favorite thing, neither is work or school, but i do it anyway lol. next some foods are aphrodizacs(sp) but most are dangerous and are more aimed towards men(ginko buloba)... next... men do like sex for physical resons and women like sex for emotional ones, that doesnt mean that men dont like the emotional part and women dont like the physical... next BDSM is abuse, it just so happens that the person resiving it wants it... next the girls are sluts and guys are players(in a good way) thingy is not irony... next... virgins cannot have std's, technachaly true simply because if they are virgins they could not have gotten the desise through sex, however if they had done "sexual acts" i suppose they could call it an std, either way be carful...douching with vingar... well have you ever wondered why a pickle is smaller then a cucumber, yes douching with vinigar will probably work but at what price.oh just saw this one, to much oral sex will make your hair fall out, well i suppose it depends on whether or not the head reciver pulls on it or not. hahaha... okay clearly ive gone on to long now so adiue

Well, Givega... I dunno how true everything you're saying is either.

as a bisexual man i know from experiance that while in a gay relationship i have way more sex

The amount of sex a person has really varies from person to person and has absolutely nothing to do with their orientation. I know plenty of people who are gay or bisexual but consider themselves virgins, for example. Sexual experience isn't a prerequisite when deciding upon your orientation.

men who dont want to go down on hairy snatch, might sound lude but its not nesisaraly untrue

YOU may not enjoy it, and I'm sure many people don't, but the reason why that is called a myth is because you can't make broad generalizations about what men like. Plenty of men (and women for that matter) don't care whether a woman is shaven or not when giving oral sex.

men do like sex for physical resons and women like sex for emotional ones, that doesnt mean that men dont like the emotional part and women dont like the physical

Maybe I'm just misunderstanding what you're saying, but there's nothing to say what MOST men and MOST women like about sex, at all. Again, broad generalizations just don't work, and from what I'm reading here, you're just playing into that...

BDSM is abuse, it just so happens that the person resiving it wants it

It's not abuse if they want it. BDSM activities, when healthy, are between consenting adults who have certain safety agreements and boundaries set.

And last but not least...

virgins cannot have std's, technachaly true simply because if they are virgins they could not have gotten the desise through sex

STDs are spread through skin/fluid contact, therefore intercourse (I assume that's how you're defining virginity here) is not a prerequisite in order to get an STD. Furthermore, some STDs can be passed from parent to child- ie, HIV can be given to a baby during pregnancy, delivery, and even through breast milk- which totally eliminates the sexual aspect of it all.

I don't mean to flame, but I just find it a little frustrating that in a thread about sexual myths, you are perpetuating them and defeating the purpose of the thread entirely.

(Well-handled, leabug.)

In addition to avoiding generalizations about people based on sex and orientation, we must also ask you use proper terminology. Terms like "snatch" are objectionable and offensive to some; the proper word is "vulva".

From now on, please refrain from posting unless you're absolutely sure that what you're saying is factually correct. If it's merely your opinion, make it known.
