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
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?
