With the advent of the internet bad sex advice abounds. I decided to take a moment and compile some of the worst. Please, don't try this at home!
Intimacy is a huge part of most relationships. Created by mutual attraction, relationships are maintained by keeping the fire lit. However, if you can't satisfy your lovers when you get intimate, you're going to have some trouble keeping the passion burning. Of course, sexual intimacy is a huge part of this, and many people don't understand its importance. Sex without foreplay is like pizza without cheese, it's just not as satisfying.
To get sex right you need to know what works for you and your partner; you need to understand them and what they enjoy, and especially what they don’t enjoy. Sadly, although many people purport to be sexual gurus, giving out advice that works for them, and often only for them. Even worse, someone might think their technique works every time, but in reality their lover could be faking in order to get them to finish. Don't let that happen to you! Below is some of the worst advice you can receive when it comes to performing in the bedroom, do not do as they say.
Hard and fast always does the trick — This isn't true at all! For men, when they feel erect, it's usually a sign that they're ready to go. However, women don't have the same quick start function, and a few minutes of foreplay can really make things more enjoyable for both of you. Men might think foreplay is a waste of time, and they can do all the good things without any build up, but women experience things differently. Warm up is important for the most intense encounters, don’t kill the buzz because you're impatient, take your time and build up to the hard and fast if that's the way she likes it.
If you get off she will too — Sadly, many people are selfish lovers. When they “finish”, they believe the deed is done. This could not be further from the truth, many women are not able to achieve orgasm during penetration alone. Most women need a little extra (i.e. clitoral stimulation) to enhance the experience and to achieve mind blowing orgasm. If you're a man who tends to reach orgasm quickly, you should stimulate your partner to orgasm even before you think about your own, or continue to stimulate your partner even when you've already ejaculated. Stimulate her manually or with your mouth and make sure that both of you are truly satisfied at the finish.
If it worked once it will work every time — Some people believe that if it works once there's no need to change the routine. This couldn't be further from the truth. Monotony creates a lack of stimulation. Too often we make the mistake of keeping with the same routine, but varying things up is much more exciting for everyone. Keeping things the same will become stale pretty quick. Try something a little different, incorporate sex toys or talk about and play out your fantasies, it could have extremely passionate consequences!
