7 Common Sex Myths You’ve Probably Always Believed ‘Til Now

Having sex and getting pregnant are two topics surrounded by loads of myths that are often presented as facts. Whether it’s lying on your back with your legs in the air after intercourse to help aid fertilisation or peeing before and after sex to avoid infections, we often change our behaviours based on rumours and folklores. But how many of these tales are actually true? Well, Healthista recently debunked seven common sex myths to set us straight:

  1. Having sex increases your chance of a heart attack – FALSE.
  2. You can’t get pregnant on your period – FALSE.
  3. People with bad backs should not have strenuous sex – FALSE.
  4. Peeing before sex will help to prevent infection (UTI and STI) – FALSE.
  5. Having sex (and orgasming) can help to induce labour – FALSE.
  6. Sex can relieve headaches – TRUE.
  7. Lying with your feet in the air after sex will increase your chances of falling pregnant – FALSE.

Anyone else’s mind BLOWN? A headache is usually an excuse to not have sex and I had no idea you could get pregnant on your period! I guess it just goes to show you shouldn’t believe everything you hear – especially when it comes to sex!

Are you shocked by any of these sex myths?

  1. My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend that broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all i can to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, i searched properly and i saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and i insisted in giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will hold Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help

  2. Wrong interpretation of the lack of female desire
    The attractiveness of women to men is immediately reported by their body. Just the sight of an unfamiliar beauty or their own partner can cause them a partial erection. Women are different. Their arousal is associated with imagination and fantasy, so they need more time to tune in to sex. So you should not take the partner’s lack of instant desire to heart. It’s better to stretch the seduction process a little. But if you don’t want to stretch and want to get high with young 18 years old girls, then try this
    I’m sure that you have not experienced such a high like me

  3. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Ogudugu can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.Ogudugu. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
