Myth-Busting Monday

Check out various myth-busting topics around sexuality at the links below.  Several posts were crafted for Patreon supporters only and are indicated as such (thank you for your support).  The titles to some posts are purposefully ridiculous and also cultural misconceptions – read the posts to find out which ones are myths and which ones might be truthful or partially truthful.

Please note that none of this content is meant as specific medical or counseling advice. If you want individualized information or assessment, please consult with a trusted counselor or healthcare provider. Further, this content is educational but is geared towards adults (though the content is not graphic).  If you are a younger person wanting accessible educational information, please see Scarleteen  (and note that I am not associated with their website)
