22 Funny Misconceptions People Have About Sex

The ins and outs (heh) of intercourse are pretty simple, but there’s always going to be someone confused by certain phrases or acts. For example, while “oral sex” does sound like it means “talking about sex,” plenty of us can confirm that it definitely means something else. Or, the concept of spooning could sound incredibly jarring to someone who thinks silverware is actually going to be in the bedroom with them. These are the kinds of misconceptions that Redditors have looked back upon and laughed at. And for the record, they all know how to have sex now (we think).

thepainteddoor . 11y I knew a girl who was in her 20s and quite sexually active, but had NO CLUE about the dangers of STDs, which I found incredible since that stuff is drilled into people's heads since grade school, in my generation. I had a friend who thought that the only STD that existed was AIDS. Не, uh.. learned a difficult lesson from one of his girlfriends. ... 545

Plagiarismo . 11y Misconception I had was that girls got no satisfaction from sexual acts. In other words, sex purely benefited the guy whilst girls just laid there and accepted that they were being fucked by the guy who was getting all the pleasure. This made me question why people have casual sex in the first place if it only satisfied the guy and the girl risked pregnancy/STDs. Then I eventually came to the conclusion that girls like it too and I no longer felt guilty about that teenage promiscuity that plagued my emotions during that time. ... 789

GeoM56 . 11y There is a documented case of a couple being treated by a sex therapist who had for years not enjoyed sex.

TehScrumpy . 11y When I was in high school I thought that the licking between the fingers motion (cunnilingus sign) was another form of rockin or just some heavy metal thing. At the dinner table one night I threw it to my guitar playing brother. Не gave me this astonished look. I knew at that point that it wasn't what I thought it was. I figured out what it was years later, from tv I think. It was accurate at the time. ... 983
pics-or-didnt-happen .1 11y When my Dad gave me the talk, I got the impression that pregnancy was the guaranteed result of sex. My first question: So you and mom did it twice, right? Good 'ol Dad. Не actually explained the truth and that people do it for fun because it feels good. ... 1.5k

dmartian523 . 11y When I was 8 years old or so, my good old dad gave me the talk. What I got out of it was that girls get pregnant when guys pee into them. I proceeded to tell my group of friends.

I was riding my bike through a trail and slipped in some loose dirt, and I fell to the ground, hitting my dick-head on my bike as I fell. It hurt terribly, and I was running around in the woods screaming MY CLIT!! MY CLIT!! ... 899
CBHawk 11y I kid you not. Yesterday my friend who is 31 YEARS OLD was describing meeting a beautiful women and how he wanted to have sex with her. Не commented saying, I wanted to give her the five finger discount. My response was, you know that means you want to steal from her, right? ... 273
 11y The conception of my 11-year-old self: Women have only one hole down there, for peeing, pooping and babies. Just like a bird. ... 424
 . 11y When I was seven, my closest friend at the time explained to me quite authoritatively that, during intercourse, the glans detaches from the rest of the penis and falls deep inside, to then become the head of the baby. It eventually grows back after a couple of days. The most frequently you had sex, the faster it regrew. On married men it would regrow overnight. I then proceeded to have a nightmare of my glans detaching while in the bathtub and floating aimlessly on the surface. ... 731
brezzz . 11y When I heard about the 69, I heard that the man got head while he ate the girl out. I thought it meant he was eating food while he got blown.
