Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt
You are NOT supposed to bleed
If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.
This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.
I just really want women to know this.
Wow I’m fucking 24 and I really didn’t know this. The whole ‘hymen thing’ is so recycled that it’s just assumed to be fact, even by me apparently. This is disturbing.
The hymen exists and all, but it’s not supposed to be ‘popped’, it’s supposed to be slowly stretched. I didn’t know this until a few months ago and I consider myself educated……….. Creepy.
IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HURT:
NOT THE FIRST TIME EITHER
Tell your boyfriend, he’s a victim of this myth too. Be careful with the “myth perpetrated by men”, not ALL men are neither aware nor responsible :)
