There’s a lot of weird stories and sexual hear-says about sex that people have grown up with for years, most of these enduring beliefs and myths about sex are really not true and most times ruin the fun.
Myth: The first time will always bleed or hurtA woman’s first time doesn’t have to look like the red wedding. The hymen is simply a thin tissue. Women with a thin hymen hardly bleed while those with a thick membrane bleed more. It is possible for the hymen to break without a woman even realising it, during activities like swimming, exercising and horseback riding. While some discomfort is expected the first time, if it hurts a lot, it could mean lack of lubrication or a medical issue.
