5 Ridiculous Sex Myths From History (You Probably Believe)

Jul!a Jul!a
"Since the sexual revolution of the '60s, we tend to think that sexuality from the Baby Boomers back to the beginning of time was a long history of repressed urges, prudish fundamentalist restrictions and brutal rape politics.

But it turns out that a lot of what BBC dramas tell you about sex in history is just a fanciful cover for sex lives that didn't differ that much from our own. Myths that persist to this day include ..."

This article was right, I did believe most of these myths. At least, I never really had a reason to go researching any of them. I thought that you guys might also enjoy reading about some of these popular sex myths. Can anybody think of anything else that should be on this list but isn't?

I didn't know about the Puritan one being false and I've never heard of the Jewish myth. All the others I've heard about before, but I am certainly interested in looking for Victorian porn now. It seems like some interestingly 'classy' writing. >:3

If the Victorians liked them heavy and hairy, then I was born into the wrong time.

If Christian neighbors mistook the neck holes in Jewish laundry for penis holes in sheets, then they must have thought Jewish men had giant cocks. Men must have perpetuated a rumor of how foolish the Jews were to fuck through a sheet to make themselves feel better about their small dicks

I've heard most of those myths, but didn't really belief any of them. I knew the Victorian one was false from friends in the Humanities.

I used to believe some of these myths once but they where already dispelled by the time I read that.

I was certain the Feudal Lords thing was real. And I'd never heard of the Jewish hole thing - but beyond that I knew those! Makes me happy when I know things.

Ok I shall set about to recovering the ancient strain of fennel. All natural, no side effects and almost 100% effective contraception??? Think about all the (crap) pharmaceuticals have been trying to market to women wanting contraceptives! Who knew, all they need was fennel?
