In regards to Myth #4, I agree for the most part, but it brought to mind my “boyfriend from hell.” When he asked me if I had an orgasm, I was honest and admitted I hadn’t. I was cool with it, I didn’t need to get off every time. He was righteously offended, and insisted that I fake it next time because I hurt his ego. He literally said that! (This is merely the tip of the iceberg as to why I refer to him as my “boyfriend from hell.”)
