Finding the G-spot means you'll have better sex.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

The Grafenberg spot -- the infamous G-spot that may or may not be a supersensitive part inside a woman's vagina -- hasn't ever been proved. At least one study claims to have found it, but even if it's really there, that doesn't mean a woman would automatically respond to it. Not all women are sensitive in the same ways. If you've found it, and you like it, then more power to you.

If a man masturbates too much, he won't be able to have an orgasm during sex.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

There's no such thing as "too much" masturbation -- not really. As long as it doesn't get in the way of your daily life, it can't physically hurt you. Masturbation helps some people learn about orgasms, and it doesn't prevent a guy from having one during sex.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Condoms can affect a guy's orgasm.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Using a condom may make sex feel different, especially if a guy is used to having it without one. But a guy can learn to have orgasms while wearing a condom. Don't stop at the first brand you buy. Experiment with other types -- thickness and shape vary -- until you find one that you like. Extra lubrication can make condom use easier, too.

You can have an orgasm from anal sex.

You can have an orgasm from anal sex.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

The anus -- the opening between your buttocks -- can be a very sensitive area. Not only is it full of nerve endings, but it's close to the genitals.
