Must watch series alert! “Sex In America,” part of the Discovery Channel’s CURIOSITY series, airs its first episode this Sunday. It will explore the results of the recent sex survey done at Indiana University, where more than 5,000 people were polled and asked all sorts of questions about their sex lives. The survey took place at the same institution where Alfred Kinsey first published the results of his study 60 years ago, so it’s essentially an update on the sex lives of Americans.
“We thought it was time to find out how sexual behavior had changed,” said Debby Herbenick, who led the study. “It wasn’t just people who were young, people who were white or just people who had a certain level of education. The poll included all kinds of Americans.” Keep reading »
According to a study done by “The Today Show” and Match.com, one in three single people would give up sex for a year before they would forgo their favorite food. OK, I can kind of understand that. Salted dark chocolate! But here’s the really depressing part. While many of the 4,000 singles polled mentioned steak or chocolate (I concur) as a foods worth sacrificing sex for, there were a slew of sad ass singles who said they would give up sex for SALAD. SALAD. I said SALAD. Unacceptable. Salad is great and all. It’s healthy and satisfying and I eat it almost every day for lunch. But even the most delicious salad in the history of the world does not trump humping. I conducted my own informal poll of ladies here at The Frisky office. After the jump, the things we would actually choose over a year of sex. Hint: NOT SALAD. Keep reading »
A new sex survey conveniently sponsored by Trojan found that people in Los Angeles are getting busy more often than the rest of us. According to the survey, Angelinos do it about 135 times a year, while the rest of us poor cads only get laid about 120 times a year. They also scored the highest in sexual adventurousness. I’m not impressed. We all would be more sexually adventurous if it was 75 degrees and sunny every day where we lived. Anyhow, don’t be too jealous of those highly sexed Angelinos. They were found to be the biggest fakers — of orgasms that is. Sigh. Actors. And their satisfaction level was not ranked number one. That prize goes to the people of Philly, who were found to do it less often, but enjoy it more. It’s quality, not quantity, right? Ring that Liberty Bell! [LA Times] Keep reading »

The smarty-pants at the University of Cambridge conducted a study to find out where all the sluts were hiding at their school. Researchers, through an online survey, asked 1,000 of their students about their sex lives and found that the more students performed in bed, the worse they performed in their classes. Beyond making the grade, they were even able to pinpoint which academic pursuits would keep you a virgin. Half the math department, which ranks #1 in marks, couldn’t get laid even with straight A’s. On the other hand, coed’s pursuing medicine were found to be the friskiest, having the most sexual partners. All in all, the report card shows Cambridge is a school for experimentation, as 60% of students claimed they’ve done it outdoors, 25% are into S&M, and 15% have played a part in group sex.
