The top myths of male sexuality

Male sexuality is often viewed as something that isn't nearly as complex as that of females. The general understanding of guys is that if you show them someone attractive, they'll be ready to go within a matter of seconds. 

LiveScience.com reports a few of the top myths of male sexuality and it starts with the time-honored wisdom that men think about sex every seven seconds. The website points to the 1995 survey conducted by a research team led by Edward Laumann, which found that 43 percent of American males actually thought about sex a few times a week or even just a few times a month.

Additionally, there's that common refrain that being hitched puts a damper on your sex life – or so everyone's single friends would like them to believe. In fact, a 2006 study discovered that married men have sex up to 400 percent more often than single men and their partners are more likely to orgasm.

What about the big feet, big shoes, big everything adage? Well, that turns out to not be true either, so ladies will have to find a different way to gauge the size of their man's assets. The initial theory was born out of the scientific discovery that the same genes involved in the development of feet and toes take part in the growth of the penis, but there appears to be no correlation.

No matter what the truth of any of these myths is, there are still fundamental basic facts about sex that everyone should keep in mind. First, remember that excitement can often mean variety, so always try adding something new to the bedroom, like a LifeStyles™ vibrating ring, to spice things up. Second, keep in mind that sex is fun, but you should always make a point to wear a condom to avoid catching common STDs.
