8 Man Myths That We Need to Stop Believing

June 02, 2015 2 min read

There are most certainly some things about men that are true - like they're terrible at asking for directions (I joke). But in all seriousness, there are so many "truths" about men that aren't, well, true. Let's give the guys a break and do some man myth busting.

Myth: Men want to chase

Truth: Most men today are actually more in to self assured women who know what they want. According to Match.com's Singles in America survey, which polled more than 5,600 men and women about love and sex, 90 percent of guys report being okay with a woman asking them out.

Myth: Men only want no-strings sex

Truth: Interest in casual sex varies widely among both men and women. That being said, some men aren't interested in it at all. That being said, just because a guy is into casual sex doesn't mean he isn't interested in a relationship at all. It's very possible to want both - it just depends on which comes first.

Myth: Men don't have the biological clock.

Truth: Biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, PhD.  explained "Men are just as eager to do so as women....especially before 40"

Myth: Big feet equal a big penis.

Truth: There is absolutely no scientific proof that shoe size (or hand size or nose size) is a reliable indicator of what he's packing below the belt.

Myth: Men are commitment-phobes.

Truth: Not the case! In fact, men generally want to introduce a partner to friends and family sooner than women do, they like public affection more and they want to move in sooner. There's actually a crazy-cool biological reason for this: Women are the "custodian of the egg" (aka we get pregnant), it's adaptive for men to fall in love faster and get a woman off the market before the next guy does.

Myth: Men can't fake their orgasms.

Truth: Guys can do it too. (Obviously, this is easier to pull off with a condom)

Myth: It's easy for all men to orgasm during sex.

Truth: Not only can men struggle with orgasm, there's even a nice euphemistic name for it: DE (delayed ejaculation). Straight up, some men just have a higher threshold for orgasm. What many women don't know is that DE (and other forms of erectile disfunction, or ED, which can be caused by antidepressants, stress, and alcohol) can affect young men. In fact, a 2013 study found 26 percent of men with ED are under 40.

Myth: Men think about sex every seven seconds.

Truth: Do the math on that - that's more than 8,000 times a day. The truth is much more moderate. Younger men, predictably, think about it a little more. A 2011 study of men ages 18 to 25 recorded almost 19 times a day.
