Peeing After Sex and Other Confusing Myths About the Vagina

peeing after sex

The vagina is a pretty mysterious part of the female body, and so is peeing after sex. So here are some myths that many people are unsure about.

I didn’t know how to put in a tampon until I was 18. Yes, I know, I was a late bloomer. I had all these unanswered questions and heard so many myths about tampons that I didn’t know what was true or false. Yes, I’m aware there was Google, but let’s not get into that conversation.

Over time, the vagina has developed its own list of myths where people either believe are true or not. Such as the age-old question, is peeing after sex necessary? What happens if you don’t pee after sex? See what happens without sex ed? Mayhem.

13 myths about the vagina and peeing after sex

I don’t know about you, but my sex ed classes didn’t cover anything like this. So, that leaves us all wondering about the mechanics of our body parts and things like peeing after sex. But have no fear. Let’s get some of these myths out in the open

#1 Women ejaculate. True! People assume only men ejaculate, however, women are able to ejaculate as well. Usually, when women ejaculate, their partner wasn’t expecting it, and it can be embarrassing for some women.

However, it’s completely normal. Women can ejaculate up to two tablespoons of fluid and it’s usually clear in color and bitter/citrus in smell. However, remember, not all women are able to ejaculate. [Read: 5 goofproof moves to make a girl squirt like she’s peeing]

#2 Female ejaculation is pee. False! Many people thinking that female ejaculation is pee, but it’s not. Squirting is actually not pee. Sorry to burst your bubble. Just like men, you will find some urine in both female and male ejaculation, however, it isn’t the main component. So, don’t get grossed out, it’s all good.

#3 Do you have to pee after sex? Yes! Well, you don’t HAVE to pee after sex, so don’t worry, your vagina won’t blow up. However, it’s better if you do. Actually, your body is automatically wanting the act of peeing after sex.

Peeing after sex helps you flush out bacteria and prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) from occurring. The last thing you want is bacteria travelling to the bladder… UTIs are no fun. If you don’t pee after sex, you won’t necessarily get a UTI, however, you may make yourself vulnerable to it. [Read: 11 tips to make vaginal fisting safer and sexier]

#4 It’s like a lock and key. True! Sometimes, you may have mad sexual chemistry with someone, however, when you have sex with them, it’s nothing special. Why is that? Well, you have to think of the penis and vagina like a lock and key.

Not every penis is a match for your vagina *you can take that positively or negatively*, and it’s perfectly normal. Don’t think that if the sex wasn’t great, it’s your fault or your partner’s fault. It’s just that you guys aren’t a reproductive match. [Read: The Penis, vagina and their matching sizes according to the KamaSutra]

#5 Women don’t always get wet. True! Let me rephrase this, women don’t have to get super wet in order to be horny. This means you’ll need some extra lubrication at times. Natural lubrication can be affected by your menstrual cycle, your age, or if you’re stressed out. So, just because you’re not super wet doesn’t mean you won’t be able to have sex.

#6 The mysterious g-spot. It exists! Yes, I know, you probably think it didn’t exist, but it does. You just haven’t found it yet. The g-spot isn’t actually a spot, it can be a pretty large area. You just need to take some time in searching for where your g-spot is. [Read: How to make your vagina smell good and taste even better]

#7 All vaginas look the same. False! All those porn videos you’ve seen probably show the women typically having this “standard quo” vagina. Well, all women do not have the same vagina. Some have larger lips or a smaller clitoris than others.

I was actually surprised when I found this out. I thought my vagina was just your typical vagina, but who knows what a normal vagina looks like anyway. It’s a mystery.

#8 Loose vagina indicates she’s sleeping around. False! First of all, who care if she likes to have sex with multiple men, that doesn’t make her anything. She just likes sex. Like I said in #7, all vaginas are different. Just because she’s looser than your last partner, it doesn’t signify anything. All. Vaginas. Are. Different.

#9 Vaginas are a self-cleaning oven. True! The vagina is pretty cool, sorry fellas. The vagina produces daily fluid which helps get rid of dead cells and harmful bacteria. So, if you’re douching, there’s no need. You’re actually just removing the good bacteria and protective fluids.

#10 Women don’t discharge during the day. False! At the end of the day, my underwear looks like someone blew their nose in it. Sorry for the imagery, but it’s true. The vagina is constantly secreting discharge which helps keep the vagina clean and healthy. However, there are times when the discharge changes color, which can indicate health issues.

#11 It’s not normal to fall asleep post-sex. False! You just spent 45 minutes having sex, I’m surprised if you still have the energy to stay awake after that. It’s completely normal for women and men to fall asleep after sex.

It’s actually a natural part of the sexual cycle. You’ve just released a bunch of chemicals in your brain, and now your body needs a rest. So, don’t take it personally or feel bad, you need the rest! [Read: 25 hilarious myths about sex most of us still believe]

#12 You can only come via penal intercourse. False! Actually, most women do not come with penal intercourse. In fact, women can orgasm through different ways other than intercourse. Some women orgasm through nipple stimulation, while others orgasm through clitoral stimulation. But, this will take time to figure out.

#13 The vagina doesn’t smell. False! Actually, vaginal scent is a great way to monitor its health. When it smells a little fishy, you may have a bacterial infection. Or if it’s very bitter in smell, it could be that you’re about to have your period. [Read: Real pussy power – How to strengthen your vaginal muscles]

The vagina is an area that is susceptible to bacteria, sweating and pH imbalances which all produce their own set of smells. So, to make sure everything is going well down there, give it a smell.
