Anal takes no effort

Saliva is often the lube of choice in porn. In reality, anal takes foreplay, going slow and a lot of lube.

Ejaculation over a woman is always well received

While some women do enjoy this, it's by no means as common as porn would suggest. Only come on a partner after checking it's OK first.

All men have huge members

Penis size in porn is by no means representative of the general population.

Penises always work

It's rare you'll see erection failure or premature ejaculation in porn but these are both common in real life.

All women like dirty talk

Some women enjoy graphic talk during sex. Others find it demeaning, funny or embarrassing. Ask your lover before you start calling her names.

Everyone has a perfect body

Porn often depicts pumped up men and women with flawless bodies. Adult performers work hard to look good because they know they're going to be filmed naked. Love your body as it is – or get fitter if you're unhappy with what you see.
