Therefore, assuming that it would not be worth a terrified woman can not get pregnant because getting orgasm. Furthermore, the pregnant women who were seen as willing participants. Sadly, this ancient belief embedded by history and is still popular in modern times.
2. Maternal Impressions
The concept of motherhood, and probably dates back to before the Romans. Imagination of the mother can affect the development of the baby growing inside her. The idea was painful feelings in Romans mother birthmarks.

In the book, Sex Education, or a fair opportunity for girls (1873), Harvard Medical School professor Edward Clark, the reasons behind the idea that women should not be educated explicated. That he was out of the shoulder of the woman pushing the human race’s were inferior to men rarefied and women (in every aspect), while higher education (especially women) mind these birds pursuit ends of brain damage. Was not clearly teaches women to Clark and he should just stick to children. Book publishing, book around like a bible led to many debates and women who were educated.

The fact is that in 1880s, JW Buel an author extensive research on Chinese women living in Chinatown in San Francisco called and told them the usual despite the vaginas.
5. Aristotle’s Absurd Ideas
Aristotle, unfortunately, about the female body, in spite of being one of the greatest philosophers of all time was the victim of mistaken ideas about them. They failed to distinguish between the vagina and the urinary tract. In addition, they also came up with the theory that the ignorant believe – Women pushed inside his body during the men were having their genital making process. In other words, women are deformed man. He was perfect, and I thought that’s why the money’s baby-making, active and non-active women had which can cause. As not funny enough for you, Aristotle declared that women had fewer teeth and skull sutures sex. The greatest of philosophers, used this excuse to justify domination in every aspect of life.
6. Ovaries Are Destroyed By Driving
In 2013, the prominent scholar of Saudi Arabia Sheikh Saleh Loheidan, given that the study theme which car their pelvises displaced over and deformed children displayed their ovaries damaged women endangers children is.

7. Breasts Functions As Armour
In the 14th century, Royal Physician Henri De Mondeville wrote in a letter to the French King explaining why women’s breasts are located in that certain place. He gave as many as three reasons –
So that they can viewed by men without difficulty.
So that the heart can be well shielded and kept warm.
He claimed that physicists have declared that a warm chest strengthens women abdomen.
Again, in 1840 an English doctor name Astley Cooper opined that big breast protects women for the lower strata of the society “to bear the very severe blows which they often received in their drunken pugilistic contests.”
8. Virgins Could Help Restore Youth
Shunamitism theory was put to practice by older men. Virgins sleeping beside (but without any sexual contact) claim that men can make small. There was a time in the past when doctors prescribed to follow the ceremony complained of an upset stomach. Virgin Air in the 18th century was considered to be healthy.

In France, virgins were used as a profitable venture and is teeming with rumors, Madame Janus, who trained 50 young women to meet rich men wanted to get a little ran a home There was a successful entrepreneur without any sexual contact, of course.
9. Clitoris Can Be Used As A Penis
It is well known that ancient Greeks and Romans had many hilariously insane ideas about the human body, one such belief was that the female clitoris can be used as a penis. Yep, you heard it right. Though an old one but usage of this theory has been made during the 19th and 20th century to try to explain lesbianism (or homosexuality as a whole). Its greatest champion was Italian priest Ludovico Sinistrari who accused women of having too much lust and therefore endeavouring to transform themselves into men. Obviously this was a device to make lesbianism seem like a crime of lust. He had also advocated severe punishment to the guilty which could only occur, had the clitoris successfully penetrated the partner’s vagina. Thank god for that!
