Description

People have more access to medical information than ever before with an abundance of printed and online resources, and yet we still believe "facts" about our bodies and sexuality that are just plain wrong. "Don't Put That in There "takes on these myths and misconceptions, and exposes the truth behind some of those weird and worrisome things we think about our bodies, such as:

The average penis size is seven inches
Squeezing breasts is all fun and games
You shouldn't have sex before the big game
Anal sex will give you cancer
Two condoms are better protection than one
Pubic hair doesn't turn gray
Sex can give you a heart attack
Only men have wet dreams
You can't break your penis
You can run out of sperm

With the perfect blend of authoritative research and a breezy, accessible tone, "Don't Put That in There "is full of enlightening, practical, and quirky facts that will debunk some of the most perennial misconceptions we believe about sex and sexuality.
