Everyone thinks that men think about sex all the time, but it’s not true. They also think about sex.
No, seriously, a study by an Ohio State psychology professor claims they also think about food, sleep,
fashionable shoes and other things. The conventional wisdom that men think about sex every seven seconds would mean they do it 8,000 times a day, but they only admitted doing so 18 times daily. Women said they thought about sex 10 times a day. Figuring 16 waking hours, that’s 54 minutes between naughty thoughts for men, 96 minutes for women.
By “men” the study means young college students, psychology’s favorite test animals. Subjects kept track of their thoughts with golf stroke tally counters, which means students who play golf would be more prone to under-counting. The report will appear in January’s Journal of Sex Research, so be sure to renew your subscription.
