1. False. Men get more than they give. Women receive less than they give. And it declines as they get older. The amount men receive? Increases until they're 40 to 49 years old then starts to decline ever so slightly.

2. True. Almost 9 percent of the men questioned said that they didn't have an orgasm during their last sexual experience. But they still did better than the women. Almost 15 percent of them didn't orgasm.

3. False. A variety of activities and positions ups the chances that a woman will orgasm including if they gave or received oral or had intercourse or anal penetration.

4. False. Actually men orgasm more easily with a relationship partner, possibly from having a lack of performance anxiety.

5. False. Women masturbate a lot but not as much as their male counterparts.

6. False. Men are easily confused into thinking that panting and moaning means that an orgasm has occurred.

7. True. The excitement of being with someone new, perhaps after a long dry spell following a divorce or being widowed, is an intense turn-on.

8. False. More women do. Maybe because women can choose from a multitude of cute condom containers to put in their purses.

9. True. For a man, nothing beats good old-fashioned penile-vaginal intercourse.
