It may look small without erection, but when erected, it can give full enjoyment to n the woman as well as impregnating her. You donâ€™t need to worry about that.
- Lie: â€œPenis can to be too large, thereby hurting, injure or even damaging the womanâ€™s vaginaâ€.
Truth: No matter the size of a manâ€™s penis, it cannot be bigger than the vagina of an adult woman. Most especially, when foreplay takes place or artificial lubrication is used. Vagina is elastic in nature, hence, women cannot really be hurt by the size of penis, except in a case of rape.

- Lie: â€œCircumcised husbands take longer time to reach orgasm than the uncircumcisedâ€. Truth: What determines how often the man will reach orgasm is not whether he is circumcised or not. What determines it is the spouse co-operation , knowledge of the man about sex, its frequency (a man who have not had sex in weeks is likely to reach orgasm earlier than a man who had sex a day before the present sexual intercourse).
- Lie: â€œToo much sex makes a womanâ€™s tummy bigâ€.
Truth: Sex does not have anything to do with size of the tummy. Eating habits, pregnancy and delivery and lack of exercise can cause it.
- Lie: â€œVagina can be too narrow and not satisfy the manâ€.
Truth: Vagina of an adult woman has the ability to expand to accommodate any penis no matter its size, most especially when there is good foreplay or artificial lubrication.
- Lie: â€œVagina can be too wide that it will not give the man any enjoyment at allâ€.
Truth: No matter how wide a vaginal is, it can still satisfy the man. Though, the enjoyment can be reduced compared to when it is not, but it can still make a man to reach orgasm and enjoy himself. Women should know that they can retain the state of their vagina to pre-baby state by doing kegel exercise..
- Lie: â€œRighteous women must not react to their husbandâ€™s sex in bed. They must also not allow their husband to see their nakednessâ€™â€™.
Truth: Women must not sleep like a log of wood in bed. That does not make them unrighteous or unholy. It only shows they are exciting wives and skillful women. Women should also be naked before their husbands and not be ashamed. They should enjoy being naked in the presence of their husbands. There is nothing sinful about this. â€œThough modesty is an admirable virtue in a woman, it is out of place in the bedroom with her husbandâ€. (Tim Lahaye)
- Lie: â€œMen are natural polygamist; only one woman cannot give them sexual fulfillmentâ€. Truth: Only one woman was given to Adam and he was perfectly satisfied. Only immoral men who lack discipline cannot get sexual fulfillment from a woman. Real men, great men, get all they desire from their beloved wives.
- Lie: â€œNo other style must be used when having sex with oneâ€™s wife except man-on-top. Any other style is unholy and unrighteousâ€.
Truth: Variety in sex is good for your marriage and it is not unrighteous. It is right. It is good. It is the best. If only with your wife/husband, never allow your sex life to be monotonous, spice it up. After all, variety is the spice of life.
- Lie: â€œWomen should give their body to their husbands whenever they wishâ€.
Truth: The body of the woman belongs to the man and vice versa. If you must deny your husband, do it with wisdom, never think your body belongs to you. Always remember that, he owns your body.
- Lie: â€œSince the body of the woman belongs to the man, men can force their wives to have sex with them if they refuse. It is a legal rapeâ€™â€™.
Truth: Letâ€™s take this analogy, you own your money that you save in a bank, but you canâ€™t go and take your money forcefully from the bank without the consent of your banker. Similarly, sex should be with mutual agreement, not by force or intimidation; not by command or dictatorship. You are allowed to pet, cajole, seduce, motivate and lovingly take your wife to bed, but you are not allowed to force her, that will be too cruel and ungentlemanly, indeed, illegal and can be treated as rape.
- Lie: â€œWomen are turned on by hard, and deep thrusting during intercourseâ€.
Truth: Except your wife asks for hard and deep thrust, she will be more turned on by softer, smoother and at times more rapid motions in intercourse as you make love to her tenderly.
- Lie: â€œA woman will be satisfied in as much as penis enters her vaginaâ€.
Truth: A woman may not enjoy sex even when the husband ejaculates in her except she is well prepared before the intercourse.
- Lie: â€œMen know all about sex and need not learn about it againâ€.
Truth: Nobody (including counselors) knows everything about sex. We must continue to learn and open ourselves to improvement.
- Lie: â€œWhen a sex life is bad, that means couples are not sexually compatible. So, they should pack up the marriage.â€
Truth: No two people are truly sexually compatible. All we need to do is to learn how to improve ourselves, not blaming our mates, but to seek professional help. It can be better; you can still enjoy your sex life. Never give up.
- Lie: â€œWhen a man and his wife are having sex and the wife shows sign of pain and discomfort or sobs (weep or cry), that should make the man to know that he is manly and conqueror of a lady, sex-wiseâ€™â€™.
Truth: Real men give their wives pleasure not pain; orgasm not agony. The joy of the man should be to see his wife happy and in ecstasy, to tantalize her and take her to the â€œnext cloudâ€. Being happy seeing ones wife in agony is unwise. It does not reveal that you are a matured man, it only shows the animal in you.
- Lie: â€œIt is a sin for the man to touch the wifeâ€™s vaginal or for the woman to touch or play with her husbandâ€™s penisâ€.
Truth: If you can touch your wifeâ€™s head, hands, legs, breast, buttocks, etc, then which law bans you from touching her vagina or for touching your husbandâ€™s penis? This is not masturbation. Masturbation is when one uses his/her hand to stimulate the penis or vagina to get sexual desire. The Holy Bible is not in support of this. But if your spouse is the one touching your genital, why not. In fact, the Bible says that your body belongs to your spouse, then should I not touch what rightly belongs to me? In fact, it is another way of having fun and it is called partner inter-stimulation (PIS) or sexual inter-stimulation (SIS).
