  • Answer 1/11

    How long does a woman usually take to orgasm during sex? 

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Women generally need longer to have an orgasm than men, who take about 7 to 14 minutes. These are just averages, of course. You may be faster or slower, and it can be different from one time to the next.

  • Question 1/11

    Men can't have an orgasm unless they ejaculate.

  • Answer 1/11

    Men can't have an orgasm unless they ejaculate.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Having an orgasm and ejaculating are two different things. They usually happen together. For many men, a powerful ejaculation is the best part of an orgasm. Other men keep feeling the orgasm well after they release semen. After age 40, a man may ejaculate less, but he can still have orgasms.

  • Question 1/11

    Women can have multiple orgasms, but men can't.

  • Answer 1/11

    Women can have multiple orgasms, but men can't.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Surprised? Men younger than 30 are more likely than older men to have multiple orgasms. After an orgasm, most men need a rest period before they can get another erection. If he's older, it may be a few hours. But if he's younger, he may be up and ready in a few minutes.

  • Question 1/11

    About how many women orgasm from sex alone?

  • Answer 1/11

    About how many women orgasm from sex alone?

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Those passionate movie scenes where women reach the pinnacle at the perfect time during sex? Doesn't usually happen in real life. Most women need more than just penetration to get there. To see the real fireworks, most women need stimulation of the clitoris as well. Sometimes the position you use during sex can make the difference. But some women just don't have an orgasm during sex, ever. Whichever way you go can be normal.

  • Question 1/11

    Men can't fake it.

  • Answer 1/11

    Men can't fake it.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    It may be harder for men to fake it, but about 25% say they sometimes do. About half of women say they have. Women fake it more often during intercourse than with other kinds of sex. Men may fake it instead of admitting they're not interested, unable to stay hard, or just plain tired.

  • Question 1/11

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

  • Answer 1/11

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

    • You answered:
    • 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.

  • Question 1/11

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

  • Answer 1/11

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

    • You answered:
    • 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.

  • Question 1/11

    Orgasms can add years to your life. 

  • Answer 1/11

    Orgasms can add years to your life. 

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Some large studies have shown that both men and women who have orgasms often live longer than those who don't.

  • Question 1/11

    A woman can have an orgasm and not know it.  

  • Answer 1/11

    A woman can have an orgasm and not know it.  

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Sweating, panting, moaning, body vibrations -- they're classic signs of an orgasm. But orgasms can be milder, too. Instead of feeling a volcanic eruption, you may just reach a peak of arousal and then feel relaxed and contented. Focus on what you do feel, and enjoy it.  

  • Question 1/11

    Condoms can affect a guy's orgasm.

  • Answer 1/11

    Condoms can affect a guy's orgasm.

    • You answered:
    • 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.

  • Question 1/11

    You can have an orgasm from anal sex.

  • Answer 1/11

    You can have an orgasm from anal sex.

    • You answered:
    • 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. Some people, men and women, do have orgasms if that opening is penetrated or stimulated. But most people still need some genital touch to have an orgasm.
