    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's false!

    True. Women are more fertile during some points in their menstrual cycle – up to a week before an egg is released, the day of ovulation, and afterwards, because sperm can survive for 5-7 days in the reproductive tract. Once the egg is released, it will live for 12-24 hours. After that, most women will not be fertile again until the next menstrual cycle. But because a woman can release an egg at almost any point in her cycle, you can get pregnant from unprotected sex at any time, even if you have sex during your period.

    The clitoris is actually a big ol' thing!

    Okay, neither diagram is particularly good, but you get the picture – the clitoris is actually pretty big, though most of it is not visible.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's true!

    The vagina has a low pH, making it hostile to sperm. Sexual stimulation (and ovulation) produces a fluid which lubricates the vagina and protects the sperm from the naturally acidic environment of the vagina.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    False!

    More often than not, bleeding after losing one's virginity is not caused by a ruptured hymen but by trauma caused from penetration. You can read more about this here!

  8. 8.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Several studies have revealed that women do sleep longer than men!

    This article suggests that it's due to societal reasons – women perform more unpaid labour (such as cooking, childcare, cleaning, etc), which eats into leisure time and causes more exhaustion.

  9. 9.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's true!

    A paper in the journal Nature Climate Change in 2015 suggested that male bodies tend to produce more heat that female bodies and have a lower resting metabolic rate, which is why they tend to be more tolerant to the cold and less tolerant of heat.

  10. 10.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    False!

    If a vagina can birth a small human being and return to its original size, there is no sexual act that will "stretch it out". This is a purely misogynistic myth.
