18 Things Women Wish They had Been Told About Sex!

It probably goes back to the days when we has sex education Our parents and teachers gave us an idealised view of what sex was going to be like, when it eventually became part of our lives. The reality however ended up different, with people finding sex, though amazing, isn’t exactly what they thought it was going to be.

A recent survey from the Huffington Post has come up with 18 things that women wished they knew about sex before they got into it. It certainly makes for some interesting reading to say the least. Here goes.

1. There is no dignified way of “cleaning up” — and you WILL need to clean up afterwards.

2. A male partner won’t always have a higher sex drive than you.

3. You can have as much sex as you want, with as many people as you like.

4. Sex is truly awesome when you really love the person you’re having it with.

5. Women are allowed to enjoy sex as much as men.

6. Sex doesn’t look like it does in the movies — or in porn.

7. You are not more valuable as a person if someone wants to have sex with you, and you are not less valuable as a person if you choose not to.

8. Learn what turns you on and don’t be afraid to ask for it, because your partner isn’t a mind-reader.

9. It’s fine to say “no” — it doesn’t make you less sexual.

10. The best sex is about mutual giving.

11. Plenty of women can’t orgasm from intercourse alone. An estimated 50 to 75 percent of women require clitoral stimulation.

12. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment, so know how you plan to protect yourself from pregnancy and STDs beforehand.

13. Great sex does not equal great love.

14. Anxieties and fears about sex are totally normal — and it’s (more than) fine to talk about them.

15. Just like with anything else, to get good you need practice. Sex is not something you’re born knowing how to do well.
