Study finds that Men think about Sleep and Food as much as Sex

Everyone is familiar with the old statistic myth that men think about sex every seven seconds of the day right? Well it turns out that sex has some competition in the mind of modern day males. A recent study at Ohio State believes that men think about eating and sleeping equally. If my hands on research of living with multiple male partners count for anything, I am totally in agreeance with this finding! The guys I’ve lived with want food, then sex then sleep which happens in a predetermined sequence almost daily. (I know I’m a food making fucking/sleeping machine!)

Due to the fact that these and any other findings on the topic of psyche are based solely on what the subjects tell the researchers, the results will always be culturally biased. Do people really want to admit to others how much they spend their day thinking about sex? I’m sure I think about it way more than the average girl but it’s because of where I work and the fact that I’m totally down with vaginas/bums and penises/tongues touching for my viewing pleasure.  

Because of this, Terri Fisher, a psychologist at The Ohio State University devised a pretty interesting way of calculating this touchy data by giving 163 college women and 120 college men golf-stoke tally counters.

Some subjects were asked to check the counter every time they had a sexual thought, and others were told to tally their food or sleep thoughts.

"The stereotype is that men think about sex constantly and women rarely [think about it]," Fisher said. But that's not what she and her colleagues found. There was a broad range in the number of sex thoughts, from several participants who recorded one thought a day, to a male participant who recorded 388 thoughts in a day.

On average, Fisher wrote, the men in the study thought about sex slightly more than once each waking hour and women about half that. However, men paid no greater attention to sex than they did food and sleep, Fisher found. That difference could be a real one in which men are just more aware of their physical state at any given time, she said, or it could be that men are more comfortable clicking the tally counter to record their body-centric thoughts. - MSNBC

The study also found that women who cared about what others thought of them were less likely to report food and sex-based thoughts due to the stigma in culture regarding women who think about food and sex. I for one enjoy eating whole meals while watching Phoenix Marie anal scenes so take that society!
