If you’re here, it’s probably because you’ve read the first part of this article and you are curious to know the rest. The wait is over – lets continue our adventure into the heart of the most important things to know about sex!
6 – Sex becomes more interesting in long-term relationships
Sure, a “one night stand” is always fun, and a good self-confidence boost (for a few days, at least). But contrary to what you hear everywhere, sex in a long-term relationship does not necessarily become boring – it can be very enjoyable and even more exciting than the one-night-only engagements. Why is that? Because when we gain experience with our partner and learn about each other’s bodies, our shyness disappears, and we become more open to experimenting and trying new things together. It is much simpler to share and act on our deepest fantasies with someone we trust and have strong feelings for. Plus, we avoid opening ourselves up to criticism or being seen as a pervert.
7 – Female orgasms can relieve menstrual cramps
Most women don’t want to have sex when they are menstruating. Yet this can be really helpful! When a woman has an orgasm, hormones called endorphins are released by a part of her brain (if you’re interested, it’s the hypothalamus, the part that manages pleasure). These hormones treat the cramps associated with menstruation more effectively than any drug. An orgasm also causes the uterus to contract, encouraging the expulsion of most of the waste normally discharged during menstruation, making periods less painful and shorter. So, if you can get over the idea that sex during her period is less “glamorous”, this is a good way to help your partner suffer less – and an excellent reason for her to sleep with you!
8 – The medication can decrease your libido and your performance in bed
If you (or your partner) have experienced a decreased sex drive, look in your medicine cabinet. Anti-depressants and anti-psychotics are known to have negative effects on libido. But other, less well-known remedies, such as drugs against low blood pressure or diabetes, may also be responsible. If your medication is affecting your sex drive, see your doctor to discuss alternatives. But do not stop your treatment without consulting your physician! On SBK, we take care of our readers!
9 – Female ejaculation is much more important than male ejaculation
Though it seems like men produce a lot of fluid when they ejaculate, this is just because it comes all at once. In reality, most men only produce about a teaspoon. Women also can ejaculate, and they produce a lot more fluid. This takes practice, and not all women have this ability. But do not be surprised if your partner produces a lot of fluid during sex or masturbation. This is what some people refer to as “squirting.”
10- It is quite normal to have fantasies that seem strange
If you think your fantasies are weird, you are totally normal! Everyone has them, and there is nothing to be ashamed about! Whether you dream of a specific place, an outfit, a position, or even having multiple partners, do not think that you are different or crazy. There is actually a good chance that someone else shares your secret wishes, no matter how dark or twisted as they may seem. In addition, these thoughts are totally natural, even if you’re not willing to put these fantasies into practice in real life. So don’t worry, you’re not a pervert!
In these two articles, we’ve tried to address the reality of sexuality in order to get rid of prejudices and preconceived notions. However, our next articles will focus more on technical aspects and questions about this part of relationships. If you have comments or suggestions, I would be delighted to hear from you and to give an answer in a future article. In the meantime, be good and take care of yourself!
