New Study Shows How Often We Think About Sex and With Whom We Share our Sexual Adventures

New Study Shows How Often We Think and Share our Sexual Adventures

A new study conducted by OnePoll for the beauty and bedroom accessories company, Pure Romance asked American men and women how often they think about sex. Additionally, the study found that women share their own sexual exploits as much as men. 

Overall, Americans admitted to thinking about sex on average eight times a day. And turns out, women think about sex more than most guys realize. In fact, women think about sex seven times a day while guys think about sex nine times a day. 

Of those surveyed, 65 percent were chill about sharing the deets on their sex life with the average man or woman sharing what happens between the sheets with up to four people. 

So….who the heck are Americans sharing their sex lives with?

According to the survey we are sharing our sex life with:

61% spouse/significant other 

60% best or close friends

40%  friends 

28%  co-workers

26% roommates

The first stat makes sense given that you should be discussing sex with your girlfriend and we all share our sex lives with our closest or casual friends. The roommates and co-workers were a little odd. Unless you work with your best bud, you shouldn’t be sharing your sex life with your co-workers and your roommates know what you are up to sexually or at least what hook-ups you’ve had in a week. I mean, why would only 26% share with their roommates…they know already. 

Taking into account the percentages of people we talk about our sex lives with, Americans on average will share their sexual accounts with up to four different people. Not to go all Freudian but 17% of men share their sex life with their mothers and 20% of men share their sexual adventures with their dads. Personally speaking, I have never shared any sexual details with my mother and I think it’s downright gross. 

Who do you typically tell about your sex life?

Weed Helps Heighten Orgasms in Women According to Recent Study

Weed Helps Heighten Orgasms in Women According to Recent Study

Weed, sex and stoner films could have been the topic of my college thesis so a recent study on the topic of sex and orgasms in women makes total sense. 

The recent study released by The International Society for Sexual Medicine asked around 400 women over a year’s time about their sex lives. Turns out, the women (68.5%) that used marijuana before having intercourse reported having a more deleterious time when compared to those that didn’t. 

The benefits of enjoying grass before sex also extended to a stronger sex drive overall for a  whopping 60.6% of women. Of the 52.8% of women that enjoy marijuana with their sex reported enjoying more gratifying orgasms overall. 

For women that experience pain during sex (and not in a good way) the study’s results pointed to a drop in discomfort for women that consume marijuana on a regular basis.

Additionally, of those women that frequently use cannabis claimed to have enjoyed their orgasms twice as much as those that infrequently imbibe the plant. 

If you’ve ever smoked weed or enjoyed an edible you have no doubt mellowed out considerably and for some (myself included) dropped your inhibitions and got a little horny.

The researches of this study offered a more scientific reason for why women enjoyed sex and sexual satisfaction much more citing the connection between cannabinoid receptors hormonal release. 

The study’s results also pointed to an increase of neurotransmitter dopamine related to marijuana use which greatly impacts sexual function. 

However, the study researchers also pointed out that the plethora of cannabinoids out there so not all lead to the best sex she might have ever had or overall better sex life. Which basically means that there are other cannabinoids could find your girl sandwiches between a bag of chips and a tub of peanut butter rather than the sheets. 

Thankfully, I live in Colorado and can put this study to the test on an ongoing basis provided my girlfriend is a willing participant but I don’t think that will take too much coaxing for her or most women. 

 

 

Recent Study Focuses on the Sex Lives of Men and Women Over 50

Recent Study Shows Focuses on Sex and Men and Women Over 50

Most of the sex surveys involving lots of sexual partners leave out those over 50 years-old. Which is why this recent survey from British researchers was an interesting take and long overdue.

The research dug deep into the lives of over 7,000 men and women over 50 and the results are somewhat surprising. Let’s start with the more obvious findings that are also stereotypically on point. 

Guys tend to have more sexual partners during their lifetime than women. And guys with more money or higher on the economic ladder and especially over 50, tend to have even more partners. But there was also good news for the broke guys out there. The study also pointed to the lower 20% of economic status with a higher amount of sexual partners. 

Sex experts attribute the amount of sex and partners more affluent older men have to a life with less of the stress that life brings for younger and middle-class men. For the guys that are broke, they may not be able to buy a Rolex but they can still have sex. 

Now, onto the ladies and it’s good news for us guys. White, bisexual women that stayed fit and didn’t deal with the usual physical afflictions associated with being out-of-shape had a higher number of sexual partners. 

I mean, if they are hitting the gym on a regular basis, women and men are more likely to have a better body and know it. And of course, regular exercise leads to a better sex life as well. 

Bad news for the married people out there with kids still living at home. We all have or know a divorced friend that shows up in the office every Monday with a story about a hookup on Match. The study also supports that it’s not just a made-up story. Men and women that are divorced never walked down the aisle and are single have slept with more people. 

Now, I am not condoning this but your friends that drink their asses off and were smokers at one time, also had more sexual partners. That being said, I will turn 50 one day and it’s encouraging to know that you can still have quite a bit a sex and with as many partners as you can—just keep using a rubber. 

Want to Have More Sex? Eat More Seafood and Fish Says Study

Want to Have More Sex? Eat More Seafood and Fish Says Study

A recent study released by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that when men and women consumed more seafood they had more sex. 

In fact, couples that BOTH ate at least two servings of fish or seafood experienced and we are sure, enjoyed a 22 percent spike in sexual intercourse. 

Fish contains omega-3 fatty acids and has been known to help boost semen production and increase levels of progesterone—which could explain all the sex. 

Want to put this study to the test? Here is a recipe for grilled salmon to get you started. 

Simple Grilled Salmon Recipe 

—4 large lemon wedges 

—4 wild caught salmon fillets with skin on

—vegetable oil 

—fresh dill

Let’s Talk About Texts: Bad Grammar is a Big Sexual Turn Off 

Let’s Talk About Texts: Bad Grammar is a Big Sexual Turn O

Forgot the typical turn offs on a date such as a hunk of spinach hanging from your teeth, stinky breath or being a bad kisser. 

Turns out, using bad grammar even in a text message or social media post matters more than how bad in bed you are, according to a recent survey released by the Plenty of Fish.

The popular dating website asked over 2,000 singles what would make them swipe left and nearly 60 percent cited crappy grammar and common spelling mistakes. 

The survey’s findings are also in-line with a 2015 survey result released in 2015 by match.com. 

Other startling takeaways from the survey pointed to a lack of reply to a text that had been read as a deal breaker over the three-day rule which is no longer a rule in the dating world. 

If you are single and responding to a text use the winky face emoji, kissing face or heart eyes and skip using the least favorite emoji—the eggplant.

In addition to good grammar and the right emoji, do not advertise your political views in your dating profile. Close to 60% of singles surveyed claimed they wouldn’t even consider dating someone who’s political views differ from their own. 

No matter which way you lean politically, (and don’t kill the messenger) this is especially a turn off if you support or voted for Donald Trump, according to the survey results. 

Basically, if you want to hook-up more, skip the obnoxious bathroom mirror selfies, political talk, brush up on your grammar skills AND no eggplant emojis.

Doing the Dishes and Grocery Shopping Leads to Sexual Satisfaction Suggests Study

woman-kitchen-man-everyday-life-298926

The number of heterosexual couples that go grocery shopping and do dishes together is on the rise since the 1990s and is leading to a more satisfying sex life, according to the Council on Contemporary Families or CCF.

Not to be confused with other menial housework tasks such as laundry or scrubbing toilets, there is something attached to doing the dishes, suggests the CCF study. Women that were elbow-deep in dishes every night or at least most of the time reportedly felt less connection and sexual satisfaction when compared to women that divided up the dishwashing with their spouses or partner.

Most men don’t care for doing the lion’s share of housework related to laundry and general cleaning any more than their female counterparts. However, they truly enjoy going to the grocery store and might even be considered a big turn on.

The biggest takeaway from the study is that not evenly splitting up or sharing household work and putting all the responsibility on just one person is not unfair but leads to resentment and a weaker relationship.

The study’s results also pointed to an uptick in today’s contemporary men and how they view their relationship and role.

Guys, the next time you are asked to wash a plate or pick out dinner ingredients remember that the payoff could be a better sex life. After all: happy wife,happy life.
