The Trojan condom company recently released their U.S. SEX CENSUS!
Also, there's an orgy of titillating tidbits from multiple news sources. From the San Francisco Chronicle:On a national level, the survey finds that the average American (18 and over) has sex 120 times a year (2.3 times per week), and reports very high levels of sexual satisfaction (76 percent satisfied). Despite the high findings, sixty-three percent of respondents still wish they were having sex more frequently.
(((Chicago))) Must be the cold weather keeping things all shriveled up.Another day, another set of national rankings placing San Francisco quite literally on top. We admit this one piqued our interest more than most: The average San Franciscan has had 30 sexual partners, more than residents of any other city.
Poor Chicago. It ranked lowest with 11.
But back to the results, and there are many. San Franciscans are the least likely to believe in abstinence before marriage (24 percent); the most likely to have learned about sex in school (52 percent); the least likely to have had sex in rural areas (5 percent) and the most likely to say they've masturbated (86 percent).Also, from the original press release:We figured the Department of Public Health might have some interesting things to say about the statistics. After all, they're the open-minded folks who dress up in a 6-foot-tall Healthy Penis costume at street fairs to promote syphilis awareness.
Researchers find residents of metropolitan centers like Los Angeles and Houston are having the most sex per year, 135 times and 125 times respectively, while residents of Philadelphia and Dallas have the least, 99 and 104 times each. Despite low levels of sexual frequency, Philadelphians report very high rates of sexual satisfaction (82 percent satisfied), followed by New York (81 percent satisfied) and Atlanta (80 percent satisfied). San Francisco (70 percent satisfied), Boston (73 percent satisfied), Los Angeles (75 percent satisfied) and Chicago (75 percent satisfied) reported the lowest levels of satisfaction.(((Sorry, that 15% of America)))Meanwhile, national data on sexual exploration and preferences indicated overall high levels of sexual satisfaction, with seventy-six percent of Americans stating to be satisfied by their sex lives and eighty-five percent having experienced an orgasm.
