10 Blowjob Myths Women Need to Stop Believing ...

By Holly

If you're sexually active, you should know all there is to know about sex. Of course, that means you should study up on oral as well as penetrative sex. According to Self, here are a few blowjob myths that need to die:

Table of contents:

  1. deep throating is the key to an excellent bj
  2. all men are obsessed with bjs, so if a dude doesn’t want one, he hates you
  3. a blow job isn’t “real sex.”
  4. it’s normal for guys to push your head down
  5. you always have to perform a blow job to completion
  6. if your bj skills are up to par, it should be over in a few minutes
  7. if your teeth touch his penis, it’ll fall off
  8. there's only one position
  9. your mouth is enough lube
  10. uncircumcised penises require extra work

1 Deep Throating is the Key to an Excellent BJ

Don't feel like a failure if you can't get your mouth all the way down. You don't have to deep throat him in order to make him happy. Just use your hands along with your mouth to reach the areas your tongue can't get!

2 All Men Are Obsessed with BJs, so if a Dude Doesn’t Want One, He Hates You

You're not always in the mood for sex, and he's not going to be, either. That means you shouldn't feel bad if you get rejected once or twice. It's normal.

3 A Blow Job Isn’t “real Sex.”

You can't get pregnant from oral sex, but you could still get an STD. That means that it's "real sex," so don't assume that you're safe if you're only giving oral.

4 It’s Normal for Guys to Push Your Head down

Don't let him hurt you. If he pushes your head down and makes you choke, then set him straight. He shouldn't be acting like you're his sex toy.

5 You Always Have to Perform a Blow Job to Completion

You can stop giving him oral and start having penetrative sex. You could also stop and give him a hand job, instead. Give your mouth a break if you need it.

6 If Your BJ Skills Are up to Par, It Should Be over in a Few Minutes

Men don't always finish as quickly as we assume they will. It can take them some time. If it takes him a few minutes to finish, then don't feel bad about your skills. It has nothing to do with you.

7 If Your Teeth Touch His Penis, It’ll Fall off

No, men don't like teeth, but that doesn't mean it's the end of the world if you accidentally touch him with them. As long as you don't scrape his skin and cut it, he'll survive.

8 There's Only One Position

This is one of the biggest blowjob myths out there. No, there isn't one position. He can lay down, stand, you can kneel, 69, you lay down while he's above you, and many more. Figure out what you like and what works best and go with it. At the very least you'll have fun trying different positions!

9 Your Mouth is Enough Lube

Uh... No. No it's not. Cotton mouth happens. To your benefit there is flavored lube to help make the process easier (and tastier). Just be sure it's condom compatible as well as safe for intercourse if that's your after plan.

10 Uncircumcised PenIses Require Extra Work

This is false. While the uncircumcised penis does have more foreskin which is more sensitive than the uncircumcised one, it requires different stimulation. There's nothing wrong with asking your man what he likes to perfectly please him during the act.

What other ridiculous myths have you heard in the past?
