10 Sex Toy and Masturbation Myths You Can Safely Dismiss

Posted on September 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

Well, yes. They may not have lied intentionally, but it only takes one initial lie or scientific misunderstanding for a complete myth to arise. In our originally very religious society, a lot of myths around sex toys and masturbation have developed. Today we check out 10 you can safely dismiss.

  1. Girls don’t masturbate – Sorry, simply not true! Survey results vary, but generally around 90% of men and 60% of women admit to having masturbated in their life.
  2. Masturbation will affect your mental functioning – There is actually some pseudo-scientific bunkum about that modifies logic and uses a lot of big words to re-hash an old myth that simply isn’t true. Masturbation does not make you crazy, nor does it negatively affect your mental functioning… apart from maybe in the 5 minutes afterwards as your blood flow to the brain re-establishes itself!
  3. Masturbation can make guys run out of sperm – Men will continue to produce as much sperm as their genetic limits set, for all of their reproductive years.
  4. Overuse of sex toys means you can’t reach orgasm any other way – Women often worry that if they overuse their vibrator or other sex toy, they won’t be able to come without it. There is no physiological basis for this concern – if it occurs, the cause is probably psychological.
  5. People in relationships don’t/shouldn’t masturbate – This is up to every couple to decide individually! There is no overarching moral code or humanistic reason that it shouldn’t happen.
  6. People in relationships don’t/shouldn’t use sex toys – Sex toys don’t replace good partnered sex, but augment it. Again, it’s not hurting anybody…
  7. Kelloggs Cornflakes will help me stop masturbating – They were formulated to do just that! Unfortunately, all the celibate intentions in the world can’t cause an ordinary food to change your interest in sex or solo play. Luckily John Harvey Kellogg’s medical knowledge was completely made-up.
  8. Masturbation causes people to commit sex crimes – Sigh. Simply not true. Masturbation is as widespread among healthy, socially adapted, non-criminal members of society as it is among sex offenders.
  9. Girls only use vibrators in a relationship because the guy can’t make them come – Girls use vibrators when in a relationship for all different reasons. One of the most commonly cited is speed – it’s faster and easier to use a vibe than go for a marathon session! There is no suggestion of inadequacy at any time.
  10. Sex toys are addictive – Many things in life have the potential to create addiction… but many people use alcohol, pokie machines, even cigarettes occasionally without becoming addicted. The same is true of vibrators and adult toys.
