Popular Myth Debunked
Men don’t think about sex all day long, finds an Ohio State U study that will appear in the January issue of the Journal of Sex Research. For the study of 163 females and 120 males, participants carried a golf tally counter for a week to track their thoughts about eating, sex and sleep. Each person tracked one type of thought; 59 tracked thoughts of eating, 61 tracked sleep and 163 tracked thoughts of sex. Participants also answered a survey about sleeping and eating habits as well as their attitudes towards sex. The study found that, regardless of gender, those who are more comfortable with their sexuality, think about sex more often. "There's really no good reason that our society should have believed that men are thinking so much more about sex than women,” say researchers.
