Check out the answers after the jump!

1. FACT! The package “Fifty Shades of Women” is available at all Personality Hotels and includes a sex kit with a black satin scarf, a vibrator, lube, a pompom feather and limited edition designer condoms. (Who said "mommy porn" wasn't awesome?)

2. FAKEOUT! The service will be available only on select aircraft traveling across the Atlantic, and only custumers of British carriers O2 and Vodafone will be able to use it. Cell phone use on flights within United States airspace is still considered illegal.

3. FACT! Guests can schedule their own custom in-room photo shoot any time of the day or night.

4. FACT! The hotel chain has already introduced this in half of its properties in North America, and according to the chain’s vice president, Ron Pohl, guest satisfaction in terms of cleanliness has already risen by 12 percent.

5. FAKEOUT! The pool water does go through chambers of UV light, but the rays filters out 99% of bacteria and toxins, rather than providing you with a tan (or burn).
