Myths About Female Sexuality and Why They’re Wrong

Let us admit it, women are stereotyped to act in particular ways compared to men. There are a lot of things that most people do not know yet about women and their sexuality, and instead believe what and how society portrays women, which is very patriarchal and male-dominating standards and perspective.  

For instance, most males are taught that masturbation is something that only males commonly do. In fact, the whole of society is taught to think this way. This also creates a stigma for girls and women who do masturbation as frequently as boys and men do. According to the survey, only 42% of women aging 17-25 admitted that they masturbate. However, if seen from a different angle, the study shows the stigma as other female respondents chose to remain silent about their preference and masturbation while males’ respondents were free and liberated to express their masturbation activity.  

There are also other taboos that women face every day, and it is only recently that women try to express what they do more openly. It is important as more organizations and programs for women’s sexual health Carolina or other parts of the world are increasing because of such movements and appeals.  

Besides masturbation, here is the list of the common myths about female’s sexuality: 

1.Women have orgasms less frequently than men do – when it comes to males and females’ orgasms, most people tend to think a gap exists, but the truth is female also often experience orgasms as frequently as males do. The only difference is that in a relationship, males are more attentive to the sexual needs of their partners compare to their female counterparts.  

2.Women want fewer sexual partners – women are seen as naturally submissive and monogamous when it comes to having sexual partners or actual patterns, while males are seen as something opposite. On an experiment and interview did by numerous researchers. It was found out that men often have a bragging claim of wanting to have several sexual partners and/or actual partners. However, it turned out to be not more than just a bragging claim. When the appropriate statistical controls were used, it turned out that most people, including males, wanted the same number of sexual and actual partners, and that is only ONE. Men are as also as monogamous as women are.  

3.Men think about sex more often than females do – in a study published in 2011, men really admitted to always think about sex more often than women do. However, it also revealed that men think other physical needs like rest, food, and sleep. This shows that men often think about physical needs and not sex alone. It takes seeing on a different angle to see the whole picture.  

Other myths you need to stop believing: 

Women are choosier than men  

Women and men have distinct preferences based on gender 

There are still a lot of things you need to bust out when it comes to the stereotyping that we have set on the genders. After all, it as seen that men and women actually like and do the same things, and like the same preferences. We are all for equality, after all.
