Some of the common myths and misconceptions related to Sexuality are:

Nocturnal emissions make boys weak: Counselor must explain to the client that involuntary ejaculation or during sleep is absolutely normal and harmless. Sometimes mate clients feel guilty about it, which is a wrong notion.

The size of penis equivalent to masculinity or virility: There is nothing about the size that proves a man’s masculinity or ability which is a myth.

A drop of men semen is equal to 20 drops of blood: There is no relation between blood and semen at all and that the loss of semen causes weakness. Semen is meant to be released from the body.

Masturbation is harmful: Both males and females practice this as a normal sexual activity and it does not affect any sexual functioning. There is no connection of facing any other medical problem due to masturbation such as acne, insanity, impotency, homosexuality or mental retardation.

Using a copper T or having undergone vasectomy or tubectomy for birth control: also protects from HIV: This is absolutely untrue. Rather use of copper T may actually increase the chances of transmission.

Condoms are the only form of birth control and safety measure to protect from HIV transmission: There are many other birth control methods. And condoms do not provide complete protection either from HIV infection or in birth control.

STD can be cured if the infected man has sex with virgin: This is a superstition and STD needs medical treatment for getting cured not a virgin who can get infected from this act.

A girl cannot get pregnant if a boy doesn’t ejaculate inside her: Pre-seminal fluids also contain sperm and this may cause pregnancy even if the boy does not ejaculate inside.

Coitus should be avoided during pregnancy: Coitus is permissible during pregnancy unless doctors have advised not to do so for any other medical reasons. Coitus must be avoided only in case of vaginal pain past history of abortion or bleeding. The pregnant woman’s wishes also will be important in this case.
