  • Answer 1/14

    Stress can make a man’s penis shrink.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    One more reason for men to avoid stress: It can make your penis shrink, if only temporarily.

Cold water and cold air are perhaps the best known causes of this “shrinkage” phenomenon, but psychological stress can do the same thing.

  • Answer 1/14

    Masturbation can:

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Most masturbation is safe and healthy, sex therapists say. And it can improve sexual function and relationships by teaching both men and women about their own sexual responses, so they’re better able to explain to their partner what feels good to them. However, if a person is compulsive with masturbation to the point of  interfering with personal relationships, he or she may want to seek help for obsessive behavior. Finally, masturbation can, in fact, cause injury; frequent or overly vigorous masturbation can irritate the skin of the penis, and men who masturbate face-down can injure their urethras.

  • Question 1/14

    The G-spot is a sexually sensitive part of a woman’s anatomy found in the anterior vaginal wall.

  • Answer 1/14

    The G-spot is a sexually sensitive part of a woman’s anatomy found in the anterior vaginal wall.

    • You answered:
    • Correct Answer:

    Whether the G-spot exists is a matter of debate. Popularized by a 1982 book, the G-spot is a region found behind the pubic bone that has been credited as the trigger for a vaginal (vs. clitoral) orgasm, and even a catalyst for female ejaculation. However, some experts note that there’s no unique anatomical structure where the G-spot is supposed to be located. If the G-spot exists, it’s best described as an erogenous zone rather than a part of a woman’s anatomy.

They also found frequency of sex was not associated with stroke.
