Pull Out Game Strong” Only Effective About 70% Of The Time
Withdrawal, also knows as “coitus interruptus,” is the removal of the penis from a partner’s vagina before ejaculation, or coming. Withdrawal may be the most common method of birth control since it’s free and always an option for preventing contact between egg and sperm, reducing the possibility of an unintended pregnancy.

Period SEX = Safe SEX
Why we think this:
The popular belief is that if you have sex during her period, she can’t get pregnant. This myth originated from the fact that a period “tells” her body, “Okay, you’re not pregnant, so let’s get rid of that egg and start again.” Logically, if the egg is out and the next one is far away, there is no egg to be impregnated by sperm.
Overall, this is a reasonable assumption to make, and in many cases, it works fine. When periods are regular and ovulation — the release of the egg and the most fertile time of her cycle — is predictable, it can be reasonably assumed that a woman cannot get pregnant at this time. The reason this myth is false is because sperm can survive in the vagina for up to seven days, and an egg can survive for three. If she has irregular periods and ovulates closer to her period, the egg and sperm transit times get crossed. In a normal 28-day cycle, ovulation occurs two weeks before the next period. So, unless you and your girl know her cycle very intimately, don’t play with fire — you might just get burned.
Any time you have sex, you can get pregnant… and let’s not forget those STIs wrap it up, use a condom.
Does size actually matter? Only 1% of women say yes.
