Sex is a touchy subject *pun intended. But we have to talk about it. Here are a few common myths around sex that we need to dispel right away.

  1. Oral sex is safe sex. FALSE! Throat gonorrhea is a thing (sorry for the bad middle school life skills visual this bought about). You can even contract hepatitis and HIV. Ask your partner to be STD tested and using condoms if they are sexually active with other people for your own safety.

  2. Believing you are not at risk for HIV and other STDs. FALSE! I imagine most people reading this have vaginas - and I want to remind you that the that you can get any and all STDs so wear a condom, and test with your partners

  3. Contraception is a womans responsibility **(roll eyes). FALSE! Men, pack condoms in every gym bag and wallet please! And look into male birth control because we are sick and tired of carrying the entire responsibility and load on our shoulders of pregnancy prevention. Thank you. Also to partners with vaginas, conversations about birth control can and should be open and two sided.

  4. You can't get pregnant if you pull out. FALSE! Many men don’t know their bodies well enough to avoid cumin early even if they pull out. Plus pre cum can have some swimmers. Whether you use the Rythm method or condoms, practice some type of barrier method to avoid getting pregnant

  5. You can’t ask your partner about their current sexual partners. FALSE. We don’t need the IG accounts, addresses and high school prom photos of all the people you have slept with but trust is the most important part of having a fulfilled and happy sex life. So if we can’t ask our partners about their sexual relationships with others, including if they are getting tested or using condoms with others- we should be questioning those casual or dating relationships entirely

I hope this helps! Are there other sex myths you with we could get rid of?
