Busting The Most Common Myths About Sex–And Uncovering Some Surprising Ways to Have Hotter Sex More Often Right Away…
There’s a lot of stuff floating around online about sex:
The best ways to have it…
How to have more of it…
And what you should and shouldn’t do, in order to make it “good.”
A lot of it is B.S. (like the fact that “size always matters,” or “you’ll go blind if you masturbate too much”)…
But there is certainly truth in some of it too.
So today, we’re going to get to the bottom of the most common sex myths. And we’ll also show you some little-known facts about sex, that can really take your sex life to the next level.
Because the truth is, sex IS good for you in many, many ways.
But why? How? When?
Read on to find out.
1) Can Sex Really Make You Happier?
You might be thinking:
Who wouldn’t be happy with a great sex life?
And you’re right–sex truly can make you happier.
Beyond the obvious, there are scientific reasons why this is true.
A positive sexual experience releases endorphins.
This is the brain’s feel-good chemical.
People addicted to substances are after that endorphin rush. But there’s a healthy way to get this mood boost, and it’s waiting in your bedroom!
This goes for single people, via masturbation, as well as couples.
2) The Bizarre Link Between Sex & Confidence…
It’s true–sex can also make you more confident.
This applies to masturbation as well, so even if you aren’t getting any action in the bedroom, you can still get the same benefits of sex.
One survey showed that people who masturbated more often reported feeling better about their bodies as well.
College students who reported having a lot of casual sex also reported more confidence.
The cool things about this?
More confidence = more sex. And more sex = more confidence.
It’s like a snowball effect. Have a lot of sex now (solo or with a partner), and you could be having even more in the future. 😉
3) Remember When…?
Can sex improve your memory?
Well, who doesn’t like to revisit memories of a favorite romp in the hay…
But beyond that, one study revealed that people who had sex more often had better memories.
When asked to recall a list of words, people who were friskier between the sheets did better than people who had less sex.
Experts believe sex triggers activity in a part of the brain called the hippocampus, which helps with memory.
If your partner has a big exam coming up—well, now you know how to help her. How nice of you!
4) Is Sex a Natural Medicine?
If the previous facts aren’t enough to send you running for the bedroom, here’s one more that will blow your mind:
Good sex means good health.
Not just good mental health, like happiness and confidence and memory.
Sex affects your body in surprising ways too.
For example, middle-aged and older people who still have a lively sex life tend to have better blood pressure.
High blood pressure is a leading cause of major illness all over the world.
Who knew there was a fun way to keep your blood pressure in check?
Another amazing tidbit:
Men who have sex or masturbate more frequently have a lower risk for prostate cancer.
That’s a win-win, if I ever heard one.
Plus: Science shows that athletes who perform their sport right after having sex or masturbating are stronger, faster, and better!
Want to blow your co-workers away at your next charity 5K?
You know what your new warm-up activity is. 😉
Looks like you can count that bedroom time as “preventative health care.” Better than a trip to the doctor? I think so.
(Now if only we could get insurance to pay for sex toys…)
Enjoy your new prescription! I promise it will be more fun than swallowing a pill.
5) Should You Skip the Gym & Have Sex Instead?
Ok, we’ve proven that sex might help you avoid adding pills to your medicine cabinet.
But unfortunately, no, it doesn’t totally replace those running shoes or barbells.
Research shows that a sex session, while good for you in many ways, doesn’t replace a trip to the gym.
You simply can’t burn enough calories during 20-30 minutes of sex to compare it to an hour (or longer) of time spent in the gym.
6) Blue Balls Are Physically Unhealthy… Right?
You’ve probably suffered from “blue balls” at least once in your life before.
It’s the physical sensation of getting hard and anticipating having an orgasm–but then not being able to orgasm.
Some guys believe it is unhealthy to feel aroused, and then not have an orgasm.
In fact, women might have complained about “blue balls” as well.
Both men and women can experience “pelvic congestion” if they don’t finish the deed.
And some people think it’s physically unhealthy.
However, this is simply a myth!
Beyond a little discomfort, nothing bad will happen to you if you don’t reach an orgasm.
You’ll still get all of the benefits mentioned above.
7) It’s All About the Big “O” (Or Is it?)…
Lots of people think you won’t get the benefits of sex unless you have an orgasm.
And it makes sense–after all, orgasms feel amazing… so they must be pretty important, right?
Well, maybe not.
Research shows that you can still get the benefits of sex, without having an orgasm.
Of course, that’s not to say that orgasms aren’t important at all.
For example, if you want a woman to sleep with you again, studies show that you should give her an orgasm for better odds.
And it also helps to be able to get hard quick, and stay hard for a good long while.
(This will both give her more orgasms and get her to sleep with you again.)
Which brings us to the final sex myth…
It’s one that thousands of guys believe, so the truth might surprise you:
8) You Have to Take Pills to Get Hard
This myth drives me absolutely bananas…
It’s the idea that after a certain age your body just can’t “get it up” anymore, unless you take some pill…
… and it’s TOTAL nonsense.
There are countless examples of average older men who get it up just fine, without harmful drugs!
This myth first spread like wildfire in the 90’s, right before the internet really took off… and right around the time that a certain blue pill was first introduced into the marketplace.
But here’s the reality…
Getting hard has nothing to do with your age, and everything to do with getting blood flowing to your penis.
As a matter of fact there’s this all-natural bloodflow-boosting remedy that has been around for THOUSANDS of years…
… and it does a phenomenal job at getting you hard, and keeping you hard.
One of our readers used it to awaken his dormant d**k…
… and even if you can get hard already, this makes your erections last longer and be fuller.
Not to mention it also makes your loads larger and more pleasurable:
