You must be aware of these 15 misleading things related to your sexual health

Myths can really be misleading


We live in a world where fake news and myths spread like wildfire over the internet. This is especially true when it comes to myths about sexual health of an individual. Things got to a point where medical institutions and research had to take serious steps to raise awareness among the masses against this misleading information. In this article we have made a list of 15 such myths related to sexual health that you don’t need to worry about.
Doing oral sex will not give you STDs

via
There are many diseases that can be transferred via fluids. One of the most common examples of such diseases is cold sores. It is foolish to think that oral sex is safer and will not give you any STDs.
You can be affected by an STI through toilet seat

via
This is very wrong as there is no transmission of fluids and transmission is only possible if there is sexual activity so it is absurd to think that one can get STI from a toilet seat.
Having sex for the first won’t make you pregnant

via
The only way to prevent pregnancy is by using contraceptives. This myth has resulted in a lot of pregnancies.
If both partners are virgin STIs cannot be transmitted

via
People need to understand that being virgin has nothing to do with STIs. Also in most of the societies even after having oral sex people are considered virgin and they have the ability to carry and transfer STIs.
Urinating and douching after sex will protect you from STIs

via
The only thing that is required for an STI to transmit from one body to another is skin on skin interaction. It doesn’t matter if you wash the pathway before or after the connection is made the infection will be transferred.
Lesbians have masculine tendencies

via
Although some of the lesbians have an overall masculine outlook but there is a majority of uber-feminine lesbians in the world. The fact of the matter is that gender plays no role in your sexual orientation.
Using Vaseline along with a latex condom

via
You should always use water-based lubricants with the latex condoms because oil-based lubricants have tendency of breaking down and thinning the latex of condom causing it to break.
Only Gay men like oral sex

via
This is also a myth because gender has nothing to with sexual preference. Oral sex is enjoyed by people of all sexual orientations and not just by gay men.
It is easy to detect homosexuals on sight

via
It is very wrong to judge anyone just by the looks. Even though our societies have accepted homosexuality and people openly show their orientation however there are many men who don’t show their sexual orientation openly.
Vaginal sex is all that a woman need for orgasm

via
According to research that was recently conducted only 30% of the women said that vaginal sex was enough for them to have an orgasm while 70% said that they needed more than just that.
Reusing condoms

via
This is just wrong on so many levels. First of all, condoms are meant for single use only. Secondly if you are using condoms to protect yourself from STIs or you yourself are host to any STI you must never reuse a condom. Number three, it’s just really gross.
Girls masturbate less

via
Self-pleasure has often been exhibited as a masculine trait but it is not true. In some cases, females are more sexually active then men and practice self-pleasure more often than men do.
If you are homosexual, being intimate will not transfer STIs

via
This is a very misleading myth. People need to understand that STIs do not depend on sexual orientation or the style of sex and that is needed is skin on skin contact.
The myth about blue balls

via
There is a myth in circulation that says that if a person does not have sex often their gonads will be completely destroyed. Although not having sex has adverse effects on the body but this is not true.
Ending note: please stay safe

via
Although there are a lot of myths regarding sexual health on the internet there are some facts too. It is always better to be safe than sorry so make sure that you take the necessary precautions before having sex.
