Male Myth #1: It's not sex unless you have intercourse.
FALSE! Sex is more than hitting the target's bull's eye.

Male Myth #2: It's not sex unless you have an orgasm.
FALSE! Sex is an attitude & self image. An "I love you" qualifies as sex, as does a caring caress.)

FALSE! Sex is a process, not a goal.
