Myths About Sexuality

Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.

When we talk about sex, we know that there are all kinds of myths that lead to misinformation. And, sometimes, they can end in an unwanted pregnancy or contracting a sexually transmitted infection. That’s why we found the most common myths, and made a list that explains why they are wrong:

⭐️ Women can’t get pregnant on their first time having sex: This is completely false, there are many women who have unexpectedly gotten pregnant after their first time. Every time we have sex, there is a chance of getting pregnant, so make sure to use a contraceptive (such as a condom) to avoid an unplanned pregnancy.

⭐️Cleaning or washing your V Zone after having sex prevents pregnancy: False. When having sex, sperm is deposited near the cervix inside the vagina. Washing the outer part of your V Zone will not do anything to prevent the sperm from traveling further and making you pregnant. Also, when you wash your intimate area excessively, and do too many douches, you only alter the PH of your V Zone, which makes you more susceptible to infections.

⭐️Condoms decrease pleasure: False. Condoms are made with consideration of the sexual pleasure and needs of both men and women. That’s why they are made ultra thin - to maximize sensation for both parties. There are many options for condoms out there, and you can always find one that suits you and your partner.

⭐️Condoms break easily: False. The chances of a condom breaking are minimal, and when it does happen, it is due to poor storage, improper use, or insufficient lubrication. We recommend that you read the instructions to know how to use them properly before you actually need them. Also, take note of the expiration date on the condom or the box before each use.

⭐️Oral sex is safer: False. Even though you can't get pregnant from engaging in oral sex, you can get sexually transmitted infections (STIs), like syphilis, herpes, gonorrhea, and human papillomavirus (HPV). Remember to always use protection to avoid getting STIs and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).

⭐️Certain foods are aphrodisiacs: Contrary to popular belief, there aren’t enough studies to determine whether certain foods are aphrodisiacs or influence sexual desire.

⭐️You can’t have sex while pregnant: Most women with healthy pregnancies can keep having sex without a problem. In fact, there are studies that show that it’s good for the baby. 

Now that we’ve debunked some of the myths about sex and sexuality, you can get out there and make more informed decisions. 💕
