10 frequently asked questions about sex
We know that the subject has been and continues to be a taboo subject for many people. For this reason, we still find ourselves with frequent doubts that, for some, are an impediment when it comes to enjoying their intimate encounters. Let’s see.
Is it true that multiple orgasms do not exist?
False. Multiple orgasms do exist. Dr. Miguel Sira, a renowned sexologist, tells us that there are several types of orgasms. In his book “Between the sheets”, he explains that there is a multi-orgasmic pattern, characterized by a phase of intense and rapid excitement.
This phase is followed by one of sustained and short intensity, and then a period of numerous orgasms of varying intensity that ends with a gradual decrease.
If I have had sexual fantasies with other women, am I a lesbian?
False. According to the Kinsey Institute’s Dictionary of Sexology, sexual fantasies are imaginary mental representations that stimulate or accompany sexual acts. Therefore, sexual fantasies do not define a person’s sexual orientation, but other factors of greater complexity.
If I haven’t had a vaginal orgasm until now, can I ever have it again?
False. As long as attention is paid to things like clitoral stimulation, it is possible to have such an orgasm. However, we must bear in mind that, in most cases, it is the clitoris and not the vagina that is the source of orgasm.
Can I get pregnant with menstruation?
Yes. Although the odds decrease, it may happen. Well, while it is true that a woman needs to be ovulating to get pregnant, so is the fact that sometimes the menstrual cycle is not regular. Therefore, the precise moment in which you are ovulating is not known.
Additionally, there is also metrorrhagia, which consists of vaginal bleeding that occurs outside the menstrual period, and this should also be taken into account.
Why do I feel pain when my partner caresses my clitoris?
Perhaps, the couple does not know very well how to stimulate the clitoris, so they end up doing it as they do with their genitals, that is, abruptly. To change this, communication between the two components of the couple is necessary.
The clitoris is very sensitive and requires gentle stroking. The woman can communicate this to her partner. Some women feel pleasure with subtle touches, performed in a circular manner, or with light friction in the vertical direction. This depends on each one.
Tell him exactly how you want him to stimulate you. If necessary, you can masturbate and show him how you do it. Thus, he will learn.
Is the size of the penis important to feel pleasure?
No. The length of the penis does not matter when you want to have an orgasm. Many women can be reached alone by masturbating with their fingers alone.
The importance attached to the size of the penis is due to cultural myths and beliefs, but sexuality is much more than this. Indeed, sexuality goes beyond penetration or penis size.
This importance that is given to the size of the penis has been promoted through the images represented in the pornographic films, but we know that these are also full of unreality.
Does sex life end with old age?
False. Sexuality does not end with old age. It only ends when we die. The only thing that happens with old age is that changes come and sexuality is lived differently, but it is not extinguished.
Can a homosexual person be identified by his appearance?
No. Sexual orientation is influenced by many aspects of an effective, psychological, cognitive order, among others, and to determine what a person’s orientation is, it would only be necessary to ask him or express it by his will, but never by his appearance.
If you masturbate during adolescence, do you lose sexual potential in adulthood?
This is one of the frequent doubts about sex. But, no, it is completely false. It is just an unfounded belief that it has gained a place in society, without any foundation or endorsement.
Does premature ejaculation cure itself, letting time pass?
No. Premature ejaculation can be due to multiple factors. It is recommended to go to a specialist to find the most effective option. This can take time and include behavioral treatment, counseling, or the use of medications.
Over time, many myths have managed to integrate into society and have led to false beliefs that only subtract enjoyment from the exercise of sexual function. But now we know that sexuality is broad and that both men and women can take an active role to have greater satisfaction. Did you resolve any doubts about sex?
