#1 Sex Myth: Women Cannot Orgasm
There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding sexual pleasure one regarding female ejaculation and squirting . Current studies suggest that there are two different phenomenon: During female ejaculation, a small amount of thick, milky secretion escapes through the vagina during orgasm. When you squirt, a few milliliters of urine-like, transparent liquid are ejected through the urethra. Basically, this can happen to every woman or it can be learned or taught, because squirt orgasms are particularly intense and liberating.
#2 Sex Myth: A Male Orgasm Is Always Accompanied By Ejaculation
Another sexual pleasure myth is that most men ejaculate and orgasm at the same time. Nevertheless, there are two different mechanisms that can also occur at different times or even individually – i.e. orgasm without ejaculation or ejaculation without orgasm. This can be due to a sexual dysfunction, but it can also happen on purpose. So if a man does not ejaculate when he comes, it can be for different reasons and does not necessarily mean that he faked the orgasm.
#3 Sex Myth: Men cannot have multiple orgasms
It is no longer a secret that people with vaginas can cum several times in a row. But people with a penis can also experience multiple orgasms. The training of dry orgasms by controlling the PC muscle (pubis coccyx muscle), allows men to cum several times in a row before they ejaculate. The dry orgasm usually lasts longer and is therefore perceived by most men as stronger and more intense compared to a conventional orgasm.
#4 Sex Myth: Food can change the taste of bodily fluids
This has not yet been scientifically confirmed, but many have perhaps already experienced it in a self-experiment and the sociologist and sexologist Dr. Carol Queen confirms it: Everything you ingest, whether food, medicine or drinks, can affect the taste of the sperm or the vaginal fluid . If you want it to taste good down there, fruits like pineapple, papaya, and citrus are great choices. The sugar in fruit and juices actually change the taste of semen, but this doesn’t apply to semen that have already been produced. So it is best to pour down a lot of pineapple juice a few hours before the oral pleasure. At the same time, for example, garlic, nicotine and asparagus produce a bad taste.
#5 Sex Myth: Oysters & dark chocolate increase desire
There are some foods that actually have an aphrodisiac effect – seafood and chocolate are among them. Research on seafood and sex from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health suggests that couples who eat seafood often have more fulfilling sex lives and a higher chance of conceiving. The study links the high zinc content in seafood with improved sexual function as zinc boosts testosterone production.
At the same time, however, it could also be assumed that foods that trigger sexual associations have a placebo effect: When eating oysters, one thinks of kissing or oral sex, and bananas, figs and papayas are also associated with genitals. Chocolate, on the other hand, has been shown to increase the levels of dopamine, serotonin and neurotransmitters, which are responsible for our feelings of happiness and are to do with sexual arousal. The higher the cocoa content, the better.
#6 Sex Myth: Viagra only works for men
Our last sexual pleasure myth is that viagra was originally developed as an angina drug which increases blood flow. This effect leads men to get an erection more easily when they are sexually aroused. But women can also benefit from these properties, because the vulva and clitoris also have cavernous bodies, which become more sensitive due to increased blood flow. So far, there have been hardly any studies on the subject, but one study published in 2007came to the conclusion that sexual dysfunction could be improved by taking Viagra – for women suffering from depression at least -. By the way, there is now a drug specifically developed for women which increases lust: “Addiyi” has been on the market since 2015 and promises an increased female libido by acting on messenger substances in the brain and is aimed primarily at women before they hit menopause.
