Sex In America: New Survey Results Reported

|

Softcore

The new results from the National Survey of Sexual Health are now out. Done in the spring of 2009, the survey reports on the sexual behaviors of 5,865 American adolescents and adults ages 14 to 94. Researchers at Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion found:

  • There is enormous variability in the sexual repertoires of U.S. adults, with more than 40 combinations of sexual activity described at adults' most recent sexual event.
  • Many older adults continue to have active pleasurable sex lives, reporting a range of different behaviors and partner types, however adults over the age of 40 have the lowest rates of condom use. Although these individuals may not be as concerned about pregnancy, this suggests the need to enhance education efforts for older individuals regarding STI risks and prevention.
  • About 85% of men report that their partner had an orgasm at the most recent sexual event; this compares to the 64% of women who report having had an orgasm at their most recent sexual event. (A difference that is too large to be accounted for by some of the men having had male partners at their most recent event.)
  • Men are more likely to orgasm when sex includes vaginal intercourse; women are more likely to orgasm when they engage in a variety of sex acts and when oral sex or vaginal intercourse is included.
  • While about 7% of adult women and 8% of men identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the proportion of individuals in the U.S. who have had same-gender sexual interactions at some point in their lives is higher.
  • At any given point in time, most U.S. adolescents are not engaging in partnered sexual behavior. While 40% of 17 year-old males reported vaginal intercourse in the past year, only 27% reported the same in the past 90 days.
  • Adults using a condom for intercourse were just as likely to rate the sexual extent positively in terms of arousal, pleasure and orgasm than when having intercourse without one.

A summary table of the survey results is below:

  1. About 85% of men report that their partner had an orgasm at the most recent sexual event; this compares to the 64% of women who report having had an orgasm at their most recent sexual event.

    HAHAHAHA hahaha!! hehe…. pretty predictable.

    Guy: “Yeah, I had her screaming, man – she came like a race horse.”

    Girl: “I had to pretend I was having an orgasm so he would finish and get off me.”

    1. That could also be partially accounted for by women having multiple sexual partners, and having orgasms with them, while the wives — not so much so with the cumming.

  2. There’s all kinds of data there I’m not sure I needed to know. Like the percentage of 70+ year-olds who still masturbate. Yeesh, there’s an image I’ll have trouble getting out of my fevered mind.

    1. Personally, that gives me hope for the future.

      1. The chart suggests we have less than a 50% chance of masturbating in our 70s. And that says nothing about frequency. The future looks pretty bleak if you ask me.

    2. I’ll stop when they pry my limp, shrivled willy from my cold, wrinkled, dead hands…

  3. The study merely confirms the horrible suspicion that I’m the only person in America not getting any.

    1. Im single, and yeah, ditto.

      1. This just confirms certain political orientation sterotypes.

        Just think if you loved obama. Women..all over you.

        1. Nah, I blame my alma mater (it wasnt at fault, but legit to blame).

          1. GT didn’t exactly provide the most even social experience, but alcohol and GState women were still available.

            1. Not to mention Agnes Scott – keeping Techies laid since 1889.

          2. I blame my alma mater too. I went to a Seventh-Day Adventist college. That pussy is locked up tight with all kinds of moral issues and “I’m waiting for marriage” BS. And the girls are so sheltered you don’t really have an opportunity to develop good game. 🙁

    2. Same here.

      My theory is that libertarians share certain psychological characteristics that make it difficult for us to find long-term relationships, so if you’re not the one-night-stand type, you’re a lot less likely to get any.

      In my case, I live in Massachusetts, so I’m doubly screwed (so to speak): I imagine all the women here think I’m some kind of neanderthal or hillbilly.

      1. I’ve been with my wife for 18 years. JW, PL, and prolefeed are married and and the first two have multiple kids.

        1. must be a fucking Saint. I would have fed you rat poison, put a pillow over your head, shot you, decapitated your heads(yes, both of them) and then drove a stake in your heart just to be fucking sure

          1. Fuck off back to your retarded blog, rectal. No one here wants to read the prattlings of a semi-literate attention whore. Other than Warty’s, of course.

            1. If It was me I would have written on our fucking honeymoon-jesus, I need to puke writing that…

              1. Pathetic.

                1. My favorite thing about rctl is her righteous outrage at being spoofed by heller, when most of her posts are nothing but incompetent insults aimed at the regulars. Yeah, sweetheart, sure they’ll ban him for spoofing you. Stupid whore.

                  1. But, but, I’m perfect and immune to criticism!

                  2. Warty you are fucking stupid today. I could complain and have him banned-I won’t. He stole my handle and website address & that is more than a spoof.

                    1. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

                      WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

                      WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

                      Read my blog.

                2. “I’ve been with my wife for 18 years.”
                  Does she have freezer burn yet?

                  1. Boring.

        2. Are you one of those twisted freaks who actually stays with their college sweetheart?

          (Just kidding. 18 years is way impressive.)

          1. Yeah, I got her right out of high school when she was still psychologically vulnerable from her dipshit high school boyfriend. She’s too exhausted to leave now.

            1. *sigh* I’m just jealous.

        3. I am also married.

        4. I’ve been with my wife for thirteen years (married for the last seven) and we have three kids. The analytical, reason-based nature of libertarianism may contribute to a slightly higher percentage of weirdos, but I think that’s somewhat overblown.

        5. I’ve got three kids, one wife, and two girlfriends, so I think that maybe squarerooticus is just projecting.

      2. I’m closing in on three years with my girl. Christ, I’m old. I guess I should marry her already.

        1. But can you bench press her?

          1. You know, that’s a good question. I’ll hogtie her and find out tonight.

            1. My father always told me to never be with a woman I couldn’t bench press.

              1. The weight’s certainly not going to be a problem, but the weight distribution, lack of handles, and squirming might be. Hence the hogtying.

              2. Not having any clue how much the average man can bench press, I wondered if this would limit you to, like, 75 pound midgets. Wiki Answers sez 135-170 lbs, in which case your father was a wise man.

                1. It is also unlikely that Mr. Macho above can really bench 325, especially with good form.

                  Ha! Somebody’s a colossal pussy.

          2. But can you bench press her?

            It’s a lot more fun to press her on a bench. =)

      3. Doubtful. Been with my guy nigh on three years now. I’m even getting him to come around on some stuff!

      4. Been married to the same women for 35 years.

        1. How many? Do they get along well? 😉

      5. Ironic, considering that libertarians are way more sexually uninhibited than liberals OR conservatives.

        Liberals are too worried about sexism and rape to enjoy rough sex, while conservatives think that oral sex is icky.

        Libertarians are the only people who can enjoy tieing up a girl and eating her pussy without feelings of guilt or shame.

        1. Libertarians are the only people who can enjoy tieing up a girl and eating her pussy without feelings of guilt or shame.

          Strange you should say that. That’s pretty much the only time I do it.

          1. You only eat pussy when you feel shame?

            Kinky …

            1. Hey, if I was normal, I wouldn’t be posting here.

              1. come here-you’re in trouble 😉

            2. gasp!

    3. No, you’re not the only one. Sigh.

      1. Ditto.

  4. Wait a second — so even at the most active age, more than 15% of men claimed to have not masturbated in the past year? I thought a week was a long time to hold out.

    1. There was a margin of error of +/- 15%.

      1. They did the survey January 1 2011 before 3am

    2. They claim to not have “masturbated alone”. With a partner numbers can take care of that. Or, you know, lying.

      1. Also, some guys get it whenever they want it. You know, celebrities and the rich.

        1. Just because you’re getting it doesn’t mean you don’t crank one out on your own now and then (or several times a day).

      2. I’d have a hard time believing that dudes who have masturbated with a partner haven’t also had a chance to rub one out in private over the past 12 months. I’m gonna go with lying.

      3. Does a webcam or phone actress count as not being alone?

    3. Those are the guys that did it on my face. Mmmmm.

      Read my blog.

          incif immediately to prevent catastrophic failure

  5. Apparently 40-49 year old men are fucking 20-24 year old women in the ass.

    The 40something men to 40something women anal sex difference was too large and vice versa for young 20s. I think my conclusion above is correct.

    1. Also, check out the intercourse differences between 18-24 year old men and women.

      Like with the anal, the yound women are getting it on with older men. This would be encouraging but I fully admit to being weirded out by women that young. Somewhere in the upper 20s is my absolute minimum anymore. Sigh.

      1. I would never under any circumstances want to date a woman of that age group. The demand for daily phone calls back when I was that old was bad enough, but now they apparently expect continuous texting.

        I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t volunteer to be a f-buddy though.

        1. but now they apparently expect continuous texting.

          They act like it, but the less you text back, the more likely they are to show up randomly where you work for a quick bj in the parking lot.

          1. A lot of younger women tend to be attracted to bad boys who treat them badly.

            The older women tend to know better from bitter experience, and prefer men who treat them nice.

            1. The older women tend to know better from bitter experience, and prefer men who treat them nice.

              True ’nuff. And you’re welcome to ’em.

            2. The older women can tell the difference between actual confidence and bravado.

      2. Also, check out the intercourse differences between 18-24 year old men and women.

        Doesn’t necessarily suggest sex outside their age group (though that’s certainly part of it). It’s easier for women to get laid–they just have to not say “no”. If one smooth-talking male sleeps with multiple young women, it skews the percentages that way.

      3. Also, check out the intercourse differences between 18-24 year old men and women.

        Ah, being the sexual selectors is nice. We can turn down all the stanky dick that we want.

    2. Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

    3. I stole this and submitted it as a Fark headline. Will hat-tip you if it gets greenlit.

      1. If successfully had exactly 1 fark headline submission. So good luck.

        1. I’ve gotten 7, most links to Reason. This one didn’t pan out.

          1. I’ve gotten 7, most links to Reason

            So you’re one of the ones doing that. Good work. Those fuckers always lose their shit in the comments whenever Reason gets a greenlight (it’s about the only time I can bring myself to read the drivel that is the fark politics comment section. Really makes you appreciate Reason).

    4. Not seeing a problem with your conclusion, other than my own personal evidence to the contrary.

    5. Apparently 40-49 year old men are fucking 20-24 year old women in the ass.

      You’re assuming that those partners are female. A lot more bicurious men out there (or more precisely, not out) than you think.

      Or that the few women who take it in the ass invariably have just one sexual partner, which is not the case if you’ve ever talked to a wild divorcee.

      Or … other stuff I haven’t thought of just yet.

    6. The old joke was that 90% of all men admit to masturbation, and the other 10% lie about it. The men boasting about getting anal sex; I suspect a lot of them are … “exaggerating”. “Dreaming” may also be an accurate description.

  6. …however adults over the age of 40 have the lowest rates of condom use.

    Great. Now the liberals are going to promote promiscuity by wanting to hand out free condoms at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

    1. Don’t you need people actually willing to have sex with you before you can be promiscuous? I don’t buy that condom availability promotes promiscuity. And if it does, how is that bad?

  7. I really wish I was 25-29 again….

    1. [cheap shot]
      Wanting to max out your “masturbating alone” probabilities?
      [/cheap shot]

      1. If you sit on your arm for 10 minutes prior, it’s just like someone else giving you a handjob.

          1. this isn’t a Heller spoof but fuck off Heller anyway.

          2. This doesn’t even make sense to me.

            1. Don’t think too hard about rctl posts. That way lies only madness.

              1. I make spoofers redundant.

          Yeah, but it’s still a dude’s hand.

          1. He didn’t that wasn’t what he wanted.

            1. He didn’t say it either!

  8. Where is Warty? Thought for sure he’d have commented by now.

    1. I was inserting my penis into a 40-49 year old anus. Somebody’s got to do it.

      1. Male or female?

        1. Both. Neither.

  9. I had no idea your dick still worked well enough to motivate masturbation at 70+. My life will be awesome.

    /21
    //Row 7, yesterday.

    1. Indexed to zero, I assume.

      Okay, another cheap shot, but this is fun.

    2. “Dang, it’s been half and hour and it’s still not up” still counts as masturbation.

  10. 40-49 years old:

    21% of men inserted their penis into an anus.

    12% of women had a penis inserted into their anus.

    4% of men had a penis inserted into their anus.

    Conclusion: Either the 40-49 year old men are getting lucky in other age ranges, or they’re sticking their penises into anuses of something besides men and women.

    1. See my comment above, there is a 12% gap in the opposite direction for 20-24.

      20-24 women are receiving penises beyond their age range.

    2. Joel Pile answered the survey 200 times.

      1. I’m going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that ewe, Miss Curly Sue.

    3. Can’t this just mean that there’s a number of 40-49 year old women out there who are getting several penises inserted into their anuses?

      (Somehow “penis inserted into anus” sounds much more revolting than “fucked in the ass”.)

  11. “Although these individuals may not be as concerned about pregnancy, this suggests the need to enhance education efforts for older individuals regarding STI risks and prevention.”

    Or could it be they have all the info they need, but are either not concerned (what is the percentage over 40 with such diseases) or have been monogamous for a long time – unless their partner is cheating or sharing needles during drug use or something the risk is essentially nil. But by all means, we should first spend taxpayer money to “educate” people who reached some level of sexual maturity during the peak of the AIDS media coverage because they must be unaware of any STI (what happened to STD?) risks! When this “education” fails to increase condom usage, PPACA regulations should be enacted to force them to be used as part of an individual mandate. Think of the jobs that could create at Trojan and Lifestyles also!

    1. I was thinking the same thing. There are explanations for not using a condom that go beyond being uneducated about STD’s.

    2. “STI (what happened to STD?)”

      Infection (“I”) replaced disease (“D”) at least ten years ago. I was told that is because an infection, unlike a disease, is curable.

      1. So herpes is still an STD then? How about HIV? To my knowledge there is no cure for either one.

        1. It’s just some PC semantics crap. You’re not a diseased cum-dumpster, you see… you just have an infection.

        2. I look at it the same way. My personal take (as opposed to my social worker friend that told me this) is that the word infection carries less of a social stigma than disease.

          And stigma’s bad, m’kay?

          1. I remember when it was called VD.

            Back in the late 70s or early 80s, the Public Health Department in New York had a PSA jingle that went, “It’s the #1 fact of life/VD gets around” — unfortunately it’s never made its way to Youtube.

      2. I’m going back to called them VD.

        1. Uh, “calling”. (Me flunk English? That’s unpossible!)

    3. Bingo. I haven’t used a condom since I had my vasectomy 18 years ago. Haven’t needed one. I’m monogamously – and delightfully! – married and have been for 30 years. When you don’t need to worry about pregnancies or STDs, condoms are pointless.

  12. “Men are more likely to orgasm when sex includes vaginal intercourse” Seriously, how many time has an event ended without male orgasm, doesn’t this approach 100%?

    1. It it doesn’t, I want my money back!

      1. Or “IF it doesn’t,” if you’re not into typos.

    2. I didn’t even make it until the end of the quote.

    3. With a condom and a lot of booze, it’s very possible. So annoying.

      1. That, or it’s the third or fourth round in the same number of hours at a house party. Cialis will allow the pointing of the gun, but doesn’t guarantee it’ll actually fire. . .even without a condom.

    4. “Ding! Your time is up.”

    5. Seriously, how many time has an event ended without male orgasm, doesn’t this approach 100%?

      What are you, in your teens? Of course it sometimes doesn’t happen.

      Especially true if you’re fucking her on and off for hours, and sometimes you cum and sometimes you don’t, depending on how hard you’re pushing your refractory period.

      1. Concur.

  13. My date better damn well not cancel on me tonight…

    1. I’ve got a headache, sorry.

  14. I note that a lot more 18-19 year old girls are getting laid than 18-19 year old dudes. Is this because of gold-digging, maybe?

    1. And the same for 20-24, as well.

      1. Could be because dudes in that age range tend to be pretty intolerable. I didn’t want to date them when I was that age.

        1. In hindsight, do you really think it was because guys that age are intolerable or is it that dating older guys seemed more sophisticated? I’m 31 now, and most of my buddies who were intolerable in their 20s are just as intolerable now.

          1. I’m probably more tolerable now than I was back then, but that’s just because I’m less drunk now. That’s probably how it works for most dudes.

          2. That’s a fair question. There was definitely some appeal to a guy with a grown-up apartment and a real job. Whether the goal was to appear sophisticated or to avoid exposure to the squallor of early 20’s dudebros living together is anyone’s guess.

            1. I vote for avoiding the squalor of early 20s dudebros.

          3. I think most women and men of that age seem pretty intolerable. But since the women are the sexual selectors, they can find something slightly more tolerable (that usually happens to be older, too).

        2. Completely true. So what explains the cougar phenomenon, then? At some point, does a lady become willing to put up with a WOOOOOing frat asshole in exchange for young pulsing cock?

          1. 18 year old women want to screw 30 year old men.

            45 year old women want to screw 30 year old men.

          2. Yes. And guys have learned to gold dig…

          3. At some point, older women will put up with ANYTHING to feel attractive again.

            1. Bingo. Combine that with the fact that the “cougar” thing is mostly an invention of the media and it all just fades away.

            2. That’s an aspect of it, sure, but from my observational experience, most of those hot into it for the young (large) throbbing cock aspect usually also have a great deal of control over the arrangement – such as making the ‘get your sweet ass over here’ call, getting the booty delivered faster than Domino’s could get there, then telling the semi-adolescent attached to the penis to get the fuck out when she’s done with him.

              1. I managed to find a 40 year old man who also has the sexual appetite of an 18 year old.

        3. I can remember her and her friends, shrieking and listening to ABBA at the bars,, complaining about the guys her age, hoping for her own freedom to be compatible with my acceptance of domesticity.

      2. It’s eligible older men (aka: wealthy) who are getting the young pussy. No surprise.

        1. It’s no surprise that most women are motivated by materialism. ::yawn::

    2. Or because there are a lot more frat mattresses than fratboys.

    3. Hey young ladies, I am old with lots of gold to dig. Give me a call!

      1. I’m not into pulling it out of your teeth 😉

    4. I note that a lot more 18-19 year old girls are getting laid than 18-19 year old dudes. Is this because of gold-digging, maybe?

      It’s because women have a pussy, and thus can always find someone to fuck them.

      Men, OTOH, have to have some social skills.

      1. Heh, you said “other hand”.

  15. “Although these individuals may not be as concerned about pregnancy, this suggests the need to enhance education efforts for older individuals regarding STI risks and prevention.”

    That’s true for people who have multiple sexual partners, but for a faithfully monogamous heterosexual couple in which the female is post-menopausal, they’re pretty irrelevant, whereas the same couple (but younger) may still find them useful from a contraceptive perspective.

    1. Or they might be using birth control.

      Birth control is great shit.

      1. Or, they consider the odds and really don’t give a shit. Because just about everything is either a) curable, b) treatable/manageable, or c) only mildly annoying – and yes, the ‘sex’ strain of herpes falls into that category. Considering that by age 50, almost 100% of the population has been exposed to the strain that causes cold sores, that a huge percentage of the population that had the variant that causes chicken pox (or shingles), and the fact that almost 90% of the 25% of the population that are actually exposed to genital herpes have virtually no reaction and are not generally transmitters, and then considering that those 10% who do react get maybe 6 episodes of having a merely annoying lesion for a couple of days every year. . .you’re probably too skittish and risk averse in general for engaging in and enjoying ‘promiscuous’ sex with multiple partners. . .

  16. It’s not hurtin’ her!

  17. What percentage of 16-17-year-old men are screwing their 25-29-year-old teachers behind a store? Apparently the answer is greater than zero.

    1. Damn she looks pretty good for a gym teacher.

      1. I didn’t realize at first that she’s a gym teacher. I don’t know what’s more shocking… that she’s good-looking or that she’s hetero.

        1. A substitute teacher will assume Blumenshine’s teaching duties and counseling services are available for students.

          But I doubt the sub will truly be a sub, and offer happy endings, and the counselling will likely be for the students that didn’t rate being teacher’s pet of the week. . .

          1. When I was in High School, the only counseling I would have been interested in was how to get in on the action.

            1. I honestly don’t know who’s running things like schools any more but whoever they are they clearly don’t have a clue about teenage boys.

              As I noted below, puritanism is alive and well.

        2. That’s awesome.

          When I was a teenager, one my buddies was getting it on with a woman in her late 20’s; he was 15 when it started. All confirmed, she used to hang out with us and was very up front about all of it.

          She was very cute and we were all insanely jealous of him.

          1. I could be wrong but as near as I can tell, the whole “traumatic experience” (for the younger partner) aspect of these kinds of events is wildly overblown, even I might add for girls who get involved with older men.

            I’m certain that no fifteen-year-old boy is going to be psychically harmed by getting seduced by a twentysomething+ woman. If he is, it’s going to be because of other issues than the sex.

            To be absolutely clear, I am talking about 14+ year-olds here, not prepubescent children.

            I’ll go further in suggesting that teens who do get involved in them are harmed more by the guilt trip laid on them by there elders than by the event itself. The opposition to this comes from puritanism (and maybe even envy) than from any identifiable harm.

            1. Exactly. No teenage boy is going to be screwed up by this, beyond one of his buddies missing on a high five and slapping his head by mistake.

              I defy sane man to claim otherwise.

              1. Neither will a teenage girl who gets seduced by an older man. I don’t get why appealing to the young man’s hormones is totally natural while if a young woman is seduced then she’s being lied to–as if she didn’t want the sex too.

                1. I did add,

                  …even I might add for girls who get involved with older men.

                  If there is something I find annoying in today’s culture it is the notion that teenagers lack any ability to chose what they want.

              2. No teenage boy is going to be screwed up by this

                What happens when the woman gets pregnant?

            2. That said, I’m not sure that sex with teachers is an awful good idea. Especially not with ones who are as indiscreet as this one seems to have been.

              Hell, I though one of the big features of having a mature lover was that he or she would have a place of his or her own so that you didn’t have to be getting it on in a parked car .

    2. Where was that at. What kind of crazy state isnt 16 the age of consent?

      1. I suspect it is because she was a teacher, which is viewed as an abuse of authority, making it a love crime.

      2. It seems to be in Illinois, which Wikipedia informs me has 17 as its age of consent, but even in states where the age of consent is less than 18 there is usually an exception if one of the parties is in a position of authority over the other (teacher, boss, etc.).

        1. I didnt see anything that said she was his teacher though.

          But Illinois having 17 as AoC explains the arrest.

          1. I’m not familiar with Illinois law, but in Texas (where AoC is also 17) it is illegal for an employee of a primary or secondary school to engage in sexual conduct with any student at that school.

            There doesn’t have to be a supervisory relationship–it would be a crime (punishable by 2-20 years in prison) for a 19 year-old janitor to have a consensual sexual relationship with an 18 year-old senior at the school where he works.

            1. I actually know a guy who lost his job over that. Schools prefer to fire the janitor rather than prosecute.

      3. It was up until recently 14 in Hawaii, and then got changed to 16.

  18. I call masher on this whole comments section.

  19. (Points to giant print of the data graphic mounted on bedroom wall)

    “As you see, dear…”

  20. So is it just me, or does it sometimes seem like sex is just too much damn work when I could just take matters into my own hand and be done with it in five minutes?

    1. That’s how STEVE SMITH got started, you know.

  21. Little disappointed in no STEVE SMITH statistics or comments.

    1. STEVE SMITH RAPE INTERVIEWER UNTIL HE BRAKE. DATA NEVER MAKE IT INTO SURVEY.

  22. It looks as if the chick in that pic is taking it up the ass.

    1. Well, she does look 20 to 24.

      1. She’s 50.
        And she’s taking in in the colostomy shunt.

    2. No it doesn’t.

    3. That’s not necessarily buttsex. If you can find a girl with enough lower-back flexibility, that’s one of the most fun positions.

  23. I masturbate so much I’m not even interested in sex anymore. Some may see that as a negative but not being controlled by the desire to have sex with a woman is mental freedom.

    1. Still haven’t gotten to that point…

    2. Good move. Deny them your purity of essence.

    3. Good move. Deny them your purity of essence.

      1. tell me that was a joke

        1. Dr Stranglove quote

    4. masturbate so much I’m not even interested in sex anymore.

      Finally, an honest libtard.

    5. “not being controlled by the desire to have sex with a woman is mental freedom”

      So much truth in that statement.

  24. “While about 7% of adult women and 8% of men identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the proportion of individuals in the U.S. who have had same-gender sexual interactions at some point in their lives is higher.”

    Aaaaaaaaaand……????

  25. I can’t take this graph seriously if they’re not even going to bother to chart “Inserted Penis into Anus” for women.

    Call me an anal denier, but did anyone even peer review this fucker?

    1. I saw Anal Denier in 95 with Sisters of Mercy.

      You, sir, are no Anal Denier.

  26. Men are more likely to orgasm when sex includes vaginal intercourse[…]

    That would make gay men sad…

  27. Giggity.

  28. Bit disappointed that Mr. Bailey did not question any of the ideological or methodological biases of this study.

    And 7% of the population being gay, lesbian, or bi seems high — is this percentage growing?

    1. I’d heard an estimate of 10% just for gay/lesbian, nevertheless, the percentage responding honestly probably is growing.

    2. Re: Frip,

      And 7% of the population being gay, lesbian, or bi seems high — is this percentage growing?

      Don’t fret: It used to be a whopping 10% during the 90’s when everybody was quoting the Kinsey report…

      1. Yeah, Kinsey was fiction, and distorted by crap sampling.

        7% seems high and suspect. Yet I would be curious if homosex is a growing phenomenon…may be many explanations if so…

        1. another study I remember said people who were “exclusivley” homosexual accounted for 2% of women and 4% of men.

          Who the hell knows.

      2. I always heard 12%.

        Seen this PC tool before, in which the world’s population demographics are supposedly illustrated with a population of 100?

        http://www.snopes.com/science/stats/populate.asp

    3. Bi alone is probably in the low double digits, but with a lot of denial.

  29. Can we get numbers on scat play?

    1. Or furries.

  30. I love how when the web page loaded, instead of a picture, the word “softcore” appeared as a tag or something.

    Also, I’m pretty sure that girl is having an orgasm. Not a doubt in my mind.

    1. Thats what you all say.

      1. Yeah, that was sort of my point. It’s in the article, in the very first comment on this thread, etc.

        Bein’ cheeky, as it were.

  31. *fap fap fap fap*

    1. Bleh, get the fuck out of my bed

  32. The obvious interpretation of the difference between male and female reports of the frequency of female orgasm is that the males are either fooling themselves or being fooled by their partners, but there is an alternative interpretation which doesn’t involve anyone being fooled.

    Suppose, as seems plausible, that women who orgasm more easily tend to be more sexually active. If so, one such woman might be the most recent partner of two or more men. She contributes one report of female orgasm, they contribute one each, and the total numbers end up with more male than female reports of female orgasm.

    1. Or he could have more than one partner. Or he could achieve orgasm twice within one encounter.

  33. “Adults using a condom for intercourse were just as likely to rate the sexual extent positively in terms of arousal, pleasure and orgasm than when having intercourse without one.”

    Sex is always better than no sex. No one is disputing that. They should ask whether it feels BETTER without a condom (I think it does, but still use them. Cum on science! hurry up and cure all the STDs!).

  34. No way are 8% of men bi/homosexual. I think there’s a lot of lying going on in this survey.

    1. On the down low-yes they are

  35. I am so tired of these studies trying to push ‘safe sex’ condom use on married couples.

    It *is* a barrier to full intimacy and trust, besides sucking in general.

    Great sex is kinda messy. But the ‘just wear a condom and have at it’ agenda trumps all.

    ‘Safe sex’ is a fraud.

    Need proof? Nobody eats pussy thru a sheet of latex.

    If I thought it needed covering with latex, I wouldn’t want to eat it anyway.

    1. On married couples? As birth control?

  36. No, as in ‘no disease’. Certain groups really *do* have an agenda of weakening the institution of marriage.

  37. In a monogamous marriage? Is this a religious thing? What about oral sex; swallowing?

    1. That’s my point a lot of these ‘studies’ overtly push condom use by *everybody* all the time, or do it implicitly by neglecting to break out married couples in the stats as you see here.

    2. As I said, the commitment and trust in a faithful marriage gives a lot of sexual freedom *within* the marriage — no rain coats needed for disease.

  38. LOL,I didn’t mean to use “Fuck Off” in the handle-sorry!
