I remember hearing in my youth that males in their sexual peak thought about sex, on average, every seven seconds. Me? I was every five and that doesn't even include the times I was only thinking about titties. But now a new study from Ohio State University claims the actual average is less than 20 times per day, only slightly beating out(!) thoughts of food. Mmmm, sandwiches.
the research discredits the persistent stereotype that men think about sex every seven seconds, which would amount to more than 8,000 thoughts about sex in 16 waking hours.
In the study, the median number of young men's thought about sex stood at almost 19 times per day.
Young women in the study reported a median of nearly 10 thoughts about sex per day.
As a group, the men also thought about food almost 18 times per day and sleep almost 11 times per day, compared to women's median number of thoughts about eating and sleep, at nearly 15 times and about 8 1/2 times, respectively.
Interesting, Ohio State. I'm just glad to see a subject like human sexuality finally being treated with the scientific respect and analytical approach it's been missing for so boobs vagina intercourse!
Thanks to Peter, who admitted he thinks about getting home to play Skyrim waaaaay more than anything else.
