The Hard Facts

I've been obsessing for the past hour on trying to find some statistics on how often people are getting laid. It's a good question, don't you think? Well, finding the answer was not as easy as I thought it would be. I found this on About.com:

In a survey of more than 86 other studies on women’s reports of sexual intercourse frequency, U.S. and European women between the ages of 26 to 35 reported having sex between 8 to 12 times per month. SERIOUSLY??? Is this accurate for anyone? I WISH!!!!
In one of the largest U.S. studies, the majority of men and women who were living together but unmarried reported having sex 8 to 12 times per month, and the majority of married people reported having sex “a few times per month.” This is more like it, well, I don't like it, but it is what it is! One textbook compared studies in the U.S. of men and women surveyed about the frequency of “marital coitus” from 1938, 1970 and 2003. There was, in fact, little difference across the decades, and looking at men and women from ages 20 to 45, they reported between 6.8 and 8 times per month. LIES, I TELL YOU, ALL LIES!!
Researchers point out that there are many problems with these numbers, including a lack of agreement on what “sex” meant to those answering the question and problems with how the data was collected. EXACTLY!! WHAT IS SEX? BLOWJOB, ANAL, MISSIONARY, 69, 88, OR ALL OF THE ABOVE OR NONE OF THE ABOVE?? All I know is I want my 8 - 12 times a month as the stats confirm!!!!

8-12 times a month??? Please!!! I would have to "Elliot Spitzer" it if I was only getting it in 8-12 times a month. 8-12 times sounds like a good number for a weekend!!!
