  • Answer 1/12

    Women don’t like chest hair on a man.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Every woman is different, of course, and many male models and actors bare hairless chests. But some women actually prefer a manly chest of hair.

     

    Women in one study rated men with chest hair as having more sex appeal.

    The size of a man's penis means a lot to most women.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    In one survey, only 1% of women said penis length is "very important." Only 20% even rated it "important." More than half said it didn't matter at all.

     

    Width didn't matter to them, either. The same survey found that only about a third of women called penis girth "important."

  • Answer 1/12

    A woman's sexual satisfaction depends upon her partner's ability to bring her to orgasm.

    • You answered:

    Studies show that many women do not mention orgasm when asked about their most satisfying sexual experiences. Instead, they talk about feeling loved, passionate, happy, aroused, erotic, and connected to their partner.

  • Question 1/12

    Which of the following may help a man who has premature ejaculation?

  • Answer 1/12

    Which of the following may help a man who has premature ejaculation?

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Doctors sometimes also prescribe the "pause and squeeze" tactic. To do this, a man either pulls out or stops touching his penis when he's about to ejaculate. He then squeezes the tip of his penis.

     

    Wearing a condom also can increase the time it takes to ejaculate. And some sex therapists recommend having sex more often as a way of making a man's body more in the habit of sexual pleasure, which may help.

  • Question 1/12

    Most men have some erection trouble at some point.

  • Answer 1/12

    Most men have some erection trouble at some point.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    When you add all kinds of cases, mild to severe, many men have erection issues at some point. In one study, that happened to 52% of guys sooner or later. Most cases were not severe.

     

    Erection problems are often linked to age. For example, they're more common at 70 than at 30. But erection problems are not a routine part of aging and are less likely in men who don't have high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease, and who manage stress and emotions well.

  • Question 1/12

  • Answer 1/12

    Not reaching or keeping an erection may need treatment if it happens:

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Occasional misses happen. Things like being very tired or drinking too much can make that happen. But if a man has persistent erection problems over three months, he should check in with his doctor.

  • Question 1/12

    Men with erection problems should avoid drinking.

  • Answer 1/12

    Men with erection problems should avoid drinking.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Studies have not linked moderate drinking and erectile dysfunction. Drinking too much, whether it's just one night or part of a long-term pattern, can slow or spoil an erection. 

     

    Older guys tend to have more trouble with alcohol's effects on their erections. Men taking medication for ED should get a doctor's advice about drinking.

  • Question 1/12

    As men age, they may need more stimulation to reach orgasm.

  • Answer 1/12

    As men age, they may need more stimulation to reach orgasm.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Reasons for this can include lower levels of testosterone, side effects from some drugs, and health problems. However, there is no age limit on having a satisfying sex life.
