No one likes to be wrong let alone being told we are doing something wrong, especially when it comes to our relationships. This can have a huge impact on our ego and nowhere more damaging when it comes to sex. Being told you were mediocre in bed or don’t know what you were doing is definitely not something anyone wants to be told.
The problem is with so many influences to learn about sex, who and what can you trust? In today’s age of technology information about intimacy is more prevalent with each passing day. Gone are the days where learning about sex came from the “Birds and the Bees talk” your parents gave you or from Sex-education in school.
Yet with all the information available to us, there still remain many myths about sex people believe to be true. Whether they are in their late teens, twenties, thirties, forties or older, their misinformation is actually hurting their relationships and themselves. It becomes no wonder then these individuals carry this faulted set of beliefs into long-term relationships which then develop into sexless or sexually-blah relationships.
