BY taking this test, you can measure your sex knowledge. Check whether the answer to each statement should be True or False. Compare your answers with the correct answers below. Give yourself 10 points for each correct answer and add the results. Your final score is your S.Q.

A score of less than 50 indicates inadequate knowledge; 50 to 60 equals good; 70 or 80 equals excellent; 90 or above equal unusually superior.

1. A sex position other than one with the male above is wrong.
2. Most couples are forced to stop their sexual activity after age 60.
3. Intercourse that goes on too long can be fatiguing and frustrating.
4. Sex relations between a human female and an animal can never result in offspring.
5. Urethral strictures are caused by excessive sexual activity.
6. Aphrodisiacs can cure frigidity.

    I’m Unusually Superior! Also, I got 90% on the quiz, only having missed the one about the Greeks. I’m pretty sure that the answer to #10 has changed since this was written, at least in most states.

    I’ll let somebody else start the flamewar about whether or not homosexuality is a ‘deviation’.

    Err, I don’t want to start a flame war either but no. 10 would no longer be true in the majority of the states. Even if it is true in some states it is rarely enforced. There really isn’t a flame war because there are of course other sexual techniques that are practiced that are non vaginal regardless of which way “you swing”.

    Number 7 has me worried, I do not want my junk shrinking! (Hell cold water is bad enough!)

    Be prepared Mr. H; it does. You’ll be in the restroom saying “Where is that thing?”.

    But….If cartilage continues to grow as people age http://www.doctoroz.com… and there is cartilage in the penis, why would it shrink?

    I scored 100%; taking #7 and #10 in the context of their respective eras. ;)

    6 is wrong. Lack of sexual interest can be psychological but it’s more often either hormonal or innate. In this time period, though, it’s often situational – women were under immense pressure to marry in those days, and a lot of women who in our time would remain single (or marry women) ended up married rather grudgingly to men they didn’t desire but felt they had to marry.

    7 is also…well, it’s true that sadism wasn’t first practiced by the Greeks; it’s much older than that. But there’s never been a society in human history where they didn’t do the things we do. The only innovations we’ve made are technological.

    8 is tricky. Some infections and drugs can pass the placental barrier, but not all. HIV can’t easily pass the barrier, which is why neonatal HIV transmission can be reduced with drugs and surgery.
