  • This is one of the 5 myths about sex which everyone should know.

  • It is the most untrue belief about sex that leads to unplanned pregnancy.

  • Many people believe that while a women is on her period, it is difficult for her to become pregnant.

  • People usually think so because they feel that the semen ejaculated by the man tends to flow out with the menstrual blood of the women.

  • However, the truth of the time is that the sperm has the tendency to remain in the female reproductive system for over five days.

  • Hence, if the female starts to ovulate immediately after their period, she can become pregnant.

2. MASTURBATING MEANS YOU ARE SEXUALLY NOT CLOSE TO YOUR PARTNER.

Masturbating does not mean you are sexually not close to your partner.

  • This is another important one of the 5 myths about sex.

  • Masturbation is healthy, normal and part of being a sexual being.

  • It doesn’t matter whether you’re single or in any kind of relationship.

  • Knowing that your partner masturbates does not mean that they are  dissatisfied with you or THEY DO NOT CONSIDER YOU SEXUALLY ATTRACTIVE.

  • There is nothing to be taken perosnally in that.

  • Sometimes this may even lead to insecurities and self doubts.

  • In reality, masturbation is a completely normal form of sexual expression both when single and in a partnership.

  • Also masturbation is good for you as well as your partner because knowing how you like to be touched can increase your sexual comfort.
