Truth be told, a lot of us fib and lie quite a bit when it comes to describing our sexual prowess to our friends or partners.
It is even more so when you under perform after bragging pre-sex to your partner of how good you are in bed.
We blame a lot of things from an increased carbohydrate and mineralised drinks intake to how stress has an untoward impact on our ability to deliver in the sack.
These lies may do little or no harm but still shouldn’t be told because a lie remains a lie.
Moreover, some partners may find such lies appalling which may give you a bad name and ultimately lead to the end of the relationship.
A recent survey by DirectTV found out that people tend to view lies told regarding sex as the worst and hurtful type of lies to tell. The research study had about 2,000 respondents and they were asked the type of lie they tell the most. The respondents were also asked to rank the lies they told in order of severity and it was discovered that sex lies ranked top.
According to the ranking, the four worst type of lies are discussed below.
“I’m on birth control”
This is the worst lie women believe they told to their partners. It’s usually told as a means of making the man be as relaxed as possible during unexpected sexual intercourse.
This lie is mostly beneficial to both parties but is adjudged to be some of the worst lies simply because it may give rise to unwanted pregnancies.
“I’m not just looking for sex”
Men are fond of telling this lie as a sharp means of getting into their partners pants. This lie leads the partner on to believe that they can have a future which in turn makes them give their all including sex.
“I’ve slept with X number of people”
Women and men are caught up in this lie. Men tell this lie to show women that they have sufficient experience and expertise in the sack while women on the other hand tell this lie as a means of showing their partners that they have little experience and that they are lucky enough to have access to their bodies.
“You’re the first person I’ve ever done this with”
This one is mostly told by the female folks and they usually do so as a means of attesting to their purity and conservative nature in the hopes that it will stay the good man they have found to trust and give their all to them.
The fact is the first and second lie suck a lot but the third and fourth lie may be a little bit permissible, especially given the kind of clime we find ourselves in and can only be adjudged dangerous if the fourth lie involves unprotected sex.
Because, really—is it that important if you’ve had sex with an ex or with someone else you love before?
