I have no doubt that this topic has been covered before, but I thought it'd be a nice idea none the less (both for newbies and old-timers).
We all know that sex and especially sex related to gender-differences is packed with myths which may hinder understanding, empathy and fruitful negotiation. So! Let's get them down on paper and explain what's wrong with them. I'll start off with a few classics.
Men always want sex.
False. No, they don't! There are low libido men, as well as men with an average or high libido who at times finds themselves uninterested in sexual activity for various reasons. That is okay.
Low libido always has a "cause".
False. While low libido sometimes can be explained by medical or psychological reasons, a lot of the time it just is. Just as some have a bigger appetite for food and connect food with a number of feelings and situations, others rate food low on their priority list and do not find eating particularly pleasureable.
Orgasm = Sexual enjoyment.
