Myth Broken! Men Believe Women Have Sex 23 Times a Month – Guess Who’s Wrong?

270

The studies on myth and stereotypes added to a new book The Perils of Perception collected data on how often people aged 18-29 from Britain and the US have sex. The results are quite funny and unexpected! 

Do men have sex 180 times a year?

People aged 18-29 from Britain and the US shared how often they had sex in the past 4 weeks. The researched showed that young men are said to have sex 14 times in the last month. However, the truth is that it’s just 5 in Britain and 4 in US. And it’s 5 times less!

Combining these guesses to a number of intercourses men have in a year is nearly 180 times, but the actual number is  50 times. Nevertheless, men are even more wrong about the young women’s sex lives in both countries.

Women have sex 23 times a month. Not true!

Men suppose that women have lots of sex! 22 times/month in Britain, and 23 times/month in US. Looks like they think that young women have sex every day except for the menstruation period. Yikes! This “statistics” is so wrong.

In the reality, it’s around 5 times in a month, which makes it 1-2 times a week.

 How many sexual partners people by the age of 45-54? 

The guesses were quite close to the reality. In Australia and Britain, men have had about 17 partners by the time of 45–54 age. In the US, it’s 19.

With the women, there is again a misperception. Men claimed women have had 20 partners in US, 17 in Britain and 16 in Australia. However, in the reality, the number is half less than men have guessed – see the table below:
