Myth 1: the bigger a man’s baby, the better
The body image of men mainly involves the size of their babies. Body image refers to a person’s idea of his own body and how a person views it to others.
Influenced by erotic films, many men have a common misunderstanding, that is, they have unrealistic views on their size.
When most people talk about these things, they think that the larger men play a vital role in pleasing women and will be more likely to satisfy each other.
However, in a survey of women who had sexual experience, 21% responded that men’s length was “very important” and only 1% of women responded “very important”. Length is not as important as perimeter, and 32% responded that perimeter is important.
The length of a man is determined by many factors, mainly race. The length of hyperemia is 11 to 15 cm, which is normal. Only when it is less than 7 cm, it is scientifically recognized as morbid.
Nevertheless, the study agrees that our feelings about the body have a much greater impact on sexual satisfaction than objective physical characteristics.
Myth 2: choosing a partner is based on sexual performance
Many men believe that their performance in sexual life is the decisive factor for their liking by women.
Therefore, many men believe that as long as their sexual ability is outstanding, even if they have sex with a woman regardless of her feelings, they can finally make her fall in love with themselves.
Isn’t that ridiculous?
The truth is that evolutionary psychology shows that women are interested in men because they think the traits held by some men are important for raising children.
A series of studies conducted in 37 countries around the world show that attractive appearance is important for both men and women, but men pay more attention to appearance than women and are more willing to choose partners from the perspective of sexual attraction.
However, for women, the healthy physique and economic strength of their partners are more important. This is related to women’s desire to ensure the survival of their children.
Therefore, while improving yourself, trying to make money is the king.
Myth 3: men are always ready to have sex
Many men believe that they must always be “tough” in front of attractive women.
Otherwise, it is the problem of insufficient ability. Even some married women will judge their partner by this and think that he can’t because you don’t have sex today.
Of course, this is not true. Men also feel tired and may feel that they need to establish some intimate and emotional relationships with women before they are willing to have sex.
Because a man doesn’t want to be unfaithful, he may feel guilty, or he may not like it.
At this time, sometimes it’s clear that there is no problem with his body and he doesn’t behave very much in bed. It’s not that the man’s desire is not strong enough, but because he emphasizes too much on making a good impression on women, resulting in deviation in thought, or there may be some accidental reasons.
In fact, a recent study shows that men who think they “must” always be ready for sex are more likely to have sexual problems than men who disagree with this belief.
Myth 4: the longer the sex life lasts, the better
Many men worry about the duration of intimate contact. They usually have unrealistic expectations and will be under constant pressure during close contact.
Foreign countries have done a study involving 500 couples from all over the world. The researchers asked them to use a stopwatch to time their sex life for four weeks.
What did the researchers find? Surprisingly, the results have changed a lot.
The average time per couple (i.e. the average time they spend having sex) ranges from 33 seconds to 44 minutes. That’s 80 times the difference. Obviously, there is no so-called “normal” time for sex.
However, the average time (technically median) for all couples was 5.4 minutes. This means that if you rank 500 couples from the shortest sex time to the longest sex time, the average couple in the middle will do so for 5.4 minutes at a time.
So, overall, a satisfying sex life between husband and wife lasts about 3 to 13 minutes. A minute or two is too short, too long.
As long as we can get satisfaction from it, it is enough.
Myth 5: couples with good relationships have sex every day
For most couples, sex is a daily activity, which is not true, because most couples only have sex once or twice a week.
When it comes to how often couples have sex, science actually has an accurate idea.
According to a study published in the archives of sexual behavior in 2017, adults have sex on average 54 times a year – or about once a week.
Another study linked sexual frequency to happiness. Writing in the journal Social Psychology and personality science, the researchers found that couples who had sex at least once a week were more satisfied with their relationship than those who didn’t have sex often.
However, in real life, either of the couple may be dissatisfied with the frequency of sexual life.
The fact that most couples are dissatisfied with the frequency of sex shows that there is a gap between people’s expectations and what they eventually experience in their relationship.
The fact that dissatisfaction is common in both sexes also shows that the problem does not come from different degrees of sexual desire, but other pursuits in life and work, which occupy the time shared by husband and wife, such as taking care of children, resulting in the neglect of sexual life.
Myth 6: men must always make women orgasm
A man may let girls get enough satisfaction in bed through his ability. However, he has no absolute control over this situation.
In a woman’s happiness, her own role plays a great role, that is, how relaxed and comfortable she feels in her sex life.
If a girl doesn’t know her role in sex life and feels that she only needs to cooperate with a man’s “tool man”, it’s difficult for her to have an orgasm.
She needs to be very clear about what she likes, show her partner how comfortable she is, whether she has sexual thoughts, etc. these factors will affect the quality of her sexual life. Everyone, regardless of their gender, affects their own personal happiness and the happiness of their partners.
Of course, orgasm is just a reward, not a goal. If you think too much of it as a goal, this stress will increase anxiety, divert attention from your body’s feelings, and trigger negative thoughts.
Women want a man who makes them feel eager, not a man who just vents himself selfishly. So that’s why foreplay is more important to women. Because through foreplay contact, women feel that they are longed for by their partner.
Over indulgence in orgasm may reduce the pleasure of both parties and even destroy their sexual relationship.
Myth 7: the older a man is, the less he has sex
In sexual research, a common problem is men’s sexual life after old age.
With age, men’s testosterone will decrease, leading to a decline in their sexual desire. At this time, sex life is not as frequent as before, which is also very normal.
But that doesn’t mean that older men will become “powerless” about sex. Because the main factor leading to men’s failure is not the failure in any aspect, but health problems.
Because with age, men will have a variety of health problems, which in turn will affect men’s sexual desire.
Therefore, if you want to remain sexually active with age, good physical health is usually equal to good sexual health and healthy sexual desire.
Exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet and avoid bad habits such as smoking or drinking. These simple things will have a positive impact on your sexual health and your ability to maintain a healthy sexual life in old age.
After all, the body is the capital of revolution, which can work at any time.
