These sex statistics are intended to make you feel better: knowing that you are not the only one in a certain situation, but by contrary, that you are part of the greater majority, will definitely improve your self image. Also, these statistics are intended to give you answers to questions of the type: am I the only one having this problem? Normally, you don’t just walk around asking such private questions. This is how sex statistics may help you out. We created, thus, a list of interesting sex facts that will surprise you:
1. Women are using sex to bribe their partners
Amazingly enough, women are using sex in order to bribe their men to help them with house chores. 84% of all women are doing it, actually. What’s even more surprising, experts say that this is a great idea which will do no harm to the relationship.
2. Your size is ok, scientists say it!
Even though most men have a problem regarding their penis size, sex statistics show that most of them have actually just the right size! The average size of a non-erect penis is of 3.5 inches, while that of an erect penis is of 5 inches. Most men have 5 to 7 inches long penises, so no need to worry.
3. Women don’t mind a little diversity…
Statistics show that women are twice as likely as men to have same-gender sex experiences. In figures, that would be 12.5 percent for women and 5.2 percent for men. There’s no surprise , if you think that lesbians are seen as cool by most men, while almost all straight guys would be ashamed to admit a homosexual experience…
4. When a little help is needed…
Here’s another thing that most males won’t ever admit: an erectile dysfunction. However, it is not quite unusual to experience such a problem…5 % of the 40 years old men and up to 25% of 65 years old men have admitted it. Fortunately, today, there is a solution for this problem as well.
5. The loss of virginity
Men and women do not feel like making this step at the same age. Most men are a little more impatient and start their sexual life a little earlier than women. Thus, research shows that in average, men lose their virginity at 16.9, and women, at 17.4. If you are still a virgin, don’t let these figures affect you: virginity is really cool!
6. What sex statistics says about premature ejaculation?
This is a touchy issue as well. It shouldn’t be, considering the fact that numerous men experience it, at one point or another in their life. To answer the question above, sex statistics actually say that 1 of 3 men have this problem. It’s a stunning figure, right? What’s even worse is that there is o specific treatment for this disorder yet and that many of the men who are suffering from it do not even get to actually do it, as they ejaculate soon after touching their partner, in the foreplay.
7. The number of sex partners
An average woman has about 4 partners during her entire lifetime. The same study shows that men are a bit more instable: they have around 7. So, how about you? Do you find yourself in this statistics?
8. Americans are not satisfied with their sex lives
Actually, only 48 % of them are. Experts suggest, however, that there’s nothing wrong with the sexual relationship itself, but rather, with people’s expectations regarding their sex life. Unfortunately, all those Hollywood movies are giving people a distorted view on sex. What you have is the real deal, while what you see on TV is not real. Remember that and try to make most of your sexual experiences!
9. Women are hard to satisfy
Well…29 % of them aren’t. The rest do not reach orgasm every time they have sex and what is more shocking (for men, at least), the great majority of women are not able to reach orgasm trough intercourse. By contrary, men are easy to satisfy: 75 % of those questioned reach climax every single time.
10. How much time do you spend on foreplay?
Most sex intercourse start with an average 20 minutes of foreplay. This sex statistics refers mostly to women, as they are the ones who benefit from foreplay the most. What you should know is that women really need it in order to have a fulfilling sexual life. As far as women are concerned, it can take 20, 30 minutes, or even more. Men, however, are not so into it, but anything for the sake of their sweethearts, right?
