The Surprising Truth About How Often Sugar Babies Think About Sex

older_man_younger_woman_august15_13There has always been this com­mon assump­tion that all men think about is sex—how, when, where, and with whom. But it turns out they’re not the only ones. New research out of Ohio State Uni­ver­sity shows that, although young women don’t think about sex quite as often as men do, they do think about it a lot. Accord­ing to the results of a study based on stu­dents between the ages of 18 and 25, young women thought about sex, on aver­age, at least once an hour—every 51 min­utes to be exact. That works out to 18.6 times a day when you fac­tor in eight hours for sleep.

Not sur­pris­ingly, young men, on aver­age, thought about sex twice as often—every 28 min­utes, or 34.2 times in a day with eight hours for sleep­ing. But the data for this sur­vey was self-reported—the par­tic­i­pants were asked to make note of every time they thought about sex—which makes the num­bers a lit­tle skewed. Women gen­er­ally aren’t sup­posed to be think­ing about sex, and so some degree of soci­etal pres­sure may cause them to under­re­port, or straight-up lie, about how many sex­ual thoughts cross their mind.

Fur­ther­more, the num­bers rep­re­sent an aver­age, which means every young woman is dif­fer­ent. The high­est num­ber of times that a female par­tic­i­pant in this study admit­ted to think­ing about sex was 140 times in a day, which works out to once every seven min­utes. Clearly, there is going to be some variation.

That being said, this study does make one point very clear—that both men and women are sex­ual. It isn’t only men who have sex on their mind; women are just as likely to have erotic thoughts.

What do you think: Do women think about sex more or less than 18 times a day? Do you think these num­bers sound accurate?

About Isabella

I was never patriotic, so when Independence Day came, the last thing on my mind was to go out and celebrate. I was bored and I was lonely, and though they weren’t my normal crowd, thesse girls were friends and family members who I grew up with. But Diana had her man, Marsha had hers, and my cousin Lisa had her own. I was the only one who was single and my taste was just too high; the kind of men they dated did not appeal to me. I wanted the executive, the entrepreneur. I was 22 and unhappy about my life. I yearned to be in a relationship; I felt I had so much to give a man, and yet I was single. My friends and I waited for cab and I was still second-guessing whether or not I really wanted to go out. While we were waiting, an older looking gentleman driving a blue pick-up truck drove up to us. As he slowed, he said, “Don’t move. I’m coming right back!” He drove off, leaving a trail of his cologne, as he sped away to drop off the construction workers sitting in the back of the truck. Literally moments later, he came back, stopped in front of us, asked us where we were going, and told us to get in. It turns out his name was Keith. After Keith dropped us off, I realized I didn’t want to stay and asked him to take me back to where he picked us up from. He turned, looked at me, and said, “You were the reason why I picked you all up. I wanted to get to know you. So, I’m happy you decided to leave with me.”
