Myths and misconceptions about sex:-
Desire to do sex is an instinct of nature. Many of us face doubts about having sex and related matters, but the subject of sex is so personal to oneself that discussing anything about sex with doctor or a friend is full of shyness. Such lack of knowledge may lead to serious consequences such as occurrence of sexually transmitted diseases or unwanted pregnancies. In the dearth of knowledge about the subject, we mostly take the route of internet to search our answers. However, it is not always advisable to fully trust these web based information as the subject demands updated information which may not be available anywhere. Still as a reference material for your knowledge, we have culled out some famous and important myths about sex and the reality of these myths.
It is usually the impression that the risk of being infected by STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) increases by using a common toilet: Guys, please make it clear that there is no scientific background in favour of this myth.

Never feel shy to take a doctor’s advice with regard to having any doubt about your sexual life.
