Myths About Guys and Sex

Published: January 28, 2014

This post is for you, ladies. This post is for girls everywhere who can’t seem to figure out how to deal with guys, especially in the bedroom. You’ve heard good things, bad things, and very ugly things about men and sex. But what should you believe? Below are a couple of things you may have heard, but  should definitely ignore!

Don’t believe…

1. Having sex with a guy will make him like you more.

This is not true at all. Lasting relationships are built on trust, patience, and respect. Any guy that will not wait until you are ready to have sex, however long that may be, isn’t a guy you want to be with. Also, unless you’re in a committed relationship before you have sex, it’s possible he may become more detached after sex. Wait until you’re ready, and if he cares about you, he will wait too.

2. In a relationship, guys only want sex

Don’t tell them I said this, but men are emotional just like we are. They get jealous and nervous. They get sad and stressed. In a healthy relationship, your guy will appreciate many things other than sex. Sometimes he will want to listen to your problems. Sometimes he will want to talk about his problems. Back rubs, hugging, and kissing are fun for him too.

Sure, guys like sex. Hey, so do girls. But a relationship lasts longest if the two people can wait until they are emotionally ready for sex and if they can find ways to enjoy each other’s company inside and outside of the bedroom.
