Sex Questions that people are too afraid to ask
Q: As people get older does their desire for sex decrease?
A: No. Sex research has found that 57 percent of men between the ages of 61 and 75 said that their desire for sex either remained steady or increased with age. For older women, one study found that 52 percent of women age 70 to 79 report that they feel sexual desire as often as they did 20 years ago.
Q: If someone has several drinks, will that person perform better sexually?
A: No. More than 4 ounces of alcohol will inhibit sexual performance. That means that after a couple of drinks, a man may be more apt to lose his erection. A woman may find it difficult to orgasn1. Also, alcohol often causes people to incorrectly use condoms and birth control, thus creating an increased potential for unintended pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
Q: How long can sperm survive once a man ejaculates into a woman’s vagina?
A: Once ejaculated into the vagina, sperm may live for up to 72 hours. That is why it is often difficult to determine when a woman can get pregnant. She may not be ovulating at the time of sex, but she may be the next day or the day after that. She still could become pregnant days after having sex if sperm is still alive inside her.
Q: If someone masturbates three times a day is that person masturbating too much?
A: No. People can masturbate as often as they like, as long as they don’t become obsessed to the point that it interferes with the best of their life, their work, or their relationships with friends and loved ones.
Q: What is the average size of an erect penis, and does size matter?
A: The length of the average erect penis is about 6 inches. Size only matters when it comes to issues of compatibility. If the woman’s vagina is very tight and the man’s penis is very big (or vice versa) then they might have some problems with size.
Q: Does the G-Spot Exist?
A: Yes, but the G-spot is the name for the anatomical area on the upper inner wall of the vagina. Named for Ernst Grafenber, the german sexologist who researched this area. The debate is not about if it exists, but rather, if it does anything. Some women report an increase in sensation when the area is stimulated; others report that there is no increase in sensation there.
Q: If someone has a fantasy that he or she wants to rape someone, does that mean that this person is dangerous and has a serious sexual problem?
A: Probably not. Rape fantasies are quite common. Rape fantasies are only dangerous if someone seriously considers acting them out. If it is a fantasy then it is normal.
Q: If a man has the desire to wear a dress, does that mean that he is gay?
A: No. The majority of crossdressers are heterosexuals who are married with children. Only about 10 percent of crossdressers are gay, which is the same percentage of people in the general population who are gay.
Q: If a couple practices Tantric sex, does that mean that the man can last for hours and not even ejaculate when he has an orgasm?
A; Not exactly, Tantra, based on the Eastern philosophies, does make sex last longer because it is intended to keep the couple focused on the pleasure, rather than on a “goal” of sex. However, the majority of men who practice Tantra ejaculate during sex. Just the same as they would when they have traditional intercourse.
Q: Are the only people who practice S/M those who wear leather clothes and display their genital piercings?
A: No. Many people you’d never suspect practice S/M, which is the exchange of power or pain that can lead to sexual pleasure. It’s not only about whips, handcuffs, and leather. For some people, it can be an exciting way to spice up their sex lives.
Q: Is it true that using condoms prevents the spread of all sexually transmitted diseases?
A: No. There are some STDs, such as genital warts and herpes, that may spread through skin-to-skin contact, by parts of the body that are not covered by a condom. For example, if a woman has herpes sore on her outer labia, even if the man is wearing a condom, her sore can still come in contact with his scrotum, and it could spread that way.
