Sexual Myth And Related Facts…Wipe Out The Illusion.

Myth: Is a bigger penis better? Truth: Penises come in all shapes and sizes. The idea that bigger is better is simply false. What really makes sex better is compatibility with your partner and open communication about what feels good and what doesn’t. Myth: Vaginas are tight or loose depending on the amount of sex a person has had. Truth: The “tight vs. loose” idea is fairly common, but it is purely false.

If they are nervous, the walls of the vagina will naturally contract, making insertion difficult. Myth: Sex is painful. Truth: Sex should feel good –even if you are having sex for the first time or if you have had sex before . Feeling safe and comfortable is what’s important.
