Can you get pregnant the first time you have sex?

Yes. It is possible for a woman to get pregnant the first time she has sex.

 

Does alcohol make you better in bed?

No. Alcohol does not improve your sexual performance. In fact, alcohol can diminish your sexual performance and impede your decision-making abilities

 

Can you break your penis?

Yes. If the penis is violently twisted when erect, it can break. There are no bones in the penis, but the tubes that fill with blood during an erection can burst.

 

Can women who have sex with women get Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)?

Yes. If a woman has an STI then it can be passed on through vaginal fluid (including fluid on shared sex toys), blood or close bodily contact.

 

Is the size of the penis linked to foot size?

No. The idea that the size of your penis is in proportion to your shoe size is a myth, according to a study published in the British Journal of Urology International.

 

Can you use a condom more than once?

No. Condoms are not reusable. Also, they should be changed after 30 minutes of sex because friction can weaken the condom and make it more likely to split.

 

Do condoms cut off circulation?

No. A condom can stretch to 18 inches round. There are many different shapes and sizes that you can try

 

Will a man’s balls explode if he doesn’t ejaculate?

No. Men produce sperm all the time and, if they don’t ejaculate, the sperm is absorbed into their body

 

Do condoms break easily?

No. To avoid a condom breaking, you need to put it on carefully, making sure there's no air bubble at the end

 

Do all gay men have anal sex?

No. Like most sexual activity, anal sex is a matter of preference. Some people choose to do it as part of their sex life regardless of whether they are straight or LGBTQ+

 

Can HIV be passed on through oral sex?

Yes. HIV can be passed on through oral sex, but the risk is very low. HIV is transmitted through seminal and vaginal fluids, including menstrual fluids

 

Are condoms the only thing that protect against both pregnancy and STIs?

Yes. Condoms are the only method of protecting against both pregnancy and STIs. All other methods (e.g. IUD, contraception implant, vaginal ring, the pill) protect against pregnancy but not STIs.

 

Can you get pregnant if the man pulls out before he ejaculates?

Yes. Before a man ejaculates, he can leak pre-ejaculatory fluid, which contains sperm.

 

Can you still get pregnant if you use contraception?

Yes. How effective your contraception is depends on the type of contraception you use and whether you use it correctly.

 

Can you get HIV from kissing?

No. Evidence shows that the HIV virus is spread through the exchange of bodily fluids - such as blood, semen and vaginal fluids - but not saliva.

 

Is it safer to use 2 condoms instead of 1?

No. Whether it's 2 male condoms or a male and female condom, using 2 condoms is not better than 1, as they are more likely to break.

 

Can you use vaseline as lube?

No. A bit of extra lubrication is good but don't use anything with oil in it as it can dissolve the condom.

 

Are there female condoms?

Yes. Female condoms are worn inside the vagina to prevent semen getting to the womb.

 

Can a woman get pregnant if she has sex on her period?

Yes. You can get pregnant at any time during your menstrual cycle, even during, or just after, your period.
