Sex Myth #15
Bigger is better
Hmm let’s think about this one for a bit shall we?
When we think about ‘bigger’ in the context of sexuality, we often mean penises. Society tells us that bigger penises are better penises, they make you manly and powerful, and great in bed. But is that actually true? Um NO!
For starters penis does NOT equal man and a bigger penis certainly does not make you a better man. Gender is so much more (bigger) than genetalia (eh you see what I did there?) it’s about how you perceive yourself and how you engage with what society defines as ’man’ & ’woman’.
Now, onto size. Penis size is a touchy subject, mostly because there are these (unrealistic) expectations of what is ‘average’ and what is ‘big’. So to get the low down on penises check out Dr. Petra’s AMAZING article here
And lastly, bigger = better sex? Sex is more than your penis! Good sex, nay great sex is NOT dependent on your penis! What is important is that the lines of communication are open between you and your partner(s) and as the saying goes ‘it’s not the size of the wave but the motion of the ocean’
