Myths vs. Facts

Sex, dating, birth control…life in general. This is complicated stuff and sometimes—to make things easier (or maybe because they’re jerks?)—people just make stuff up. Like “instead of using a condom, you can jump up and down after sex” (nope: gravity and physical activity do not affect sperm) or “you can’t get pregnant the first time you have sex!” (sorry: virginity is not a get out of pregnancy free card). So how do you figure out what’s real and what’s fake? That’s where we come in. Think something is true? Looking to bust some myths? You’re in the right place…this section has all our best info on what’s true and what is total BS in the world of sex, love, and dating. Did we miss anything? Send us an email if you have a myth that we can bust!
