Most people have heard the popular claim that men think about s@x more than women, but a recent study conducted in the US has revealed that although men think about s@x nearly 24 times a day, women are not that far behind.
The research showed that the average woman thinks about s@x around 18 times a day. Apart this, women also think about getting naughty between the covers once every hour. The study was conducted by a team of researchers, during which, 283 college students aged between 18 and 25 were asked about various things, including food, sleep and s@x over the course of the week.
Interestingly, the study also found that men pondered about other ‘needs’ like eating and napping more than women. During the average 24 hours, men thought about food 25 times and sleeping a whopping 29. The frequency of sexual thoughts has been studied in the past too, but every study except for one has relied on self-report after the fact — quick—how many times a day do you think about sex?.
The previous research that examined actual numerical frequency has found daily sexual thought frequencies are not even in the double-digits. In addition, the research has not always consistently revealed gender differences in frequency of sexual thoughts.
Another study revealed that, a Hollywood hunk, ex-lovers, a blue film scene and even what to buy in a grocery store are some of the many things that women think of while having sex. They even think of men they secretly fantasise of.
