How about per hour?
 
2010-01-10 02:37:46 AM  
Oh, I'm hard enough all right.
 
2010-01-10 03:28:22 AM  
A dozen? Hell I think about sex a dozen times per MINUTE sometimes. I call those times being conscious.

I'm only on Fark 'cause I'm trying *not* to think about sex.

/pretty sure I'm doing it wrong
 
2010-01-10 06:36:34 AM  
I am thinking...hard...and its at 12'0 clock

Proof to all women that we aren't criticizing their every perceived flaw if we've got even the slightest chance of taking them to bed...

And even more of an answer to "Penny for your thoughts"... Hell, you'll get back change from most guys for that.

FTA: But women are more likely to play romantic music or cook their partner's favourite meal to try and get them into bed.

If you have to bribe them with food, you might be doing it wrong...

The study of 3,000 people also showed that despite the difference in the amount of times men think about sex and actually do it, almost three quarters claim they are happy about the amount of sex they were getting.

But just 58 per cent of women said the same.


Obviously somebody is lying.
 
2010-01-10 06:45:52 AM  
Hmm, most of the time I am thinking about video games and fast food. I think my subconscious is proactively removing me from the gene pool. Probably a good call.

FTFA:And 43 per cent of couples also admitted arguing over who instigates the lovemaking, with men most likely to make the first move.

I'm a woman and I usually make the 1st move..

/yeah, yeah, yeah- how you doin?
 
2010-01-10 07:10:19 AM  
I have to leave some thought in there for work, food, sleep, etc.
 
2010-01-10 07:17:05 AM  
Hmmm...we live in a society that shoves sex in our faces 24/7. I would have guessed the number to be much higher.
 
2010-01-10 07:17:23 AM  
not while I go to pee, thanks


pee boners need too much navigation
 
2010-01-10 07:20:10 AM  
My wife usually makes the first move.. and then leaves me to do the rest of them (all the work). Not that I'm complaining.

I don't see why that is obvious at all. There could be lots of explanations for this.

1. While men like sex a lot, and think about it a lot, they are happy enough with what they get. Women may not think about it as much, but but they still want it more often than they get it and are not happy about that (greed).
2. Lots of men have frequent sex with the same, smallish subset of women (sluts/hot girls). This leaves lots of happen men, and a few very satisfied women, but many OTHER women don't get sexed at all for whatever reason and are not happy about that.

etc etc etc.

Long story short, please don't vote, as you fail at logic.

Never tried cooking for an easy/random hookup, but be certain cooking a good dinner for your girlfriend is a real turn on.

If I had $1 for every time I thought about sex, Bill Gates could be my butler.

If I had $1 for every time I had sex...well, I'd have $1...
 
2010-01-10 07:39:03 AM  
meh to sex. Not that I haven't greatly enjoyed it at times...However the article goes to show how much time is wasted with it. The satisfaction and happiness it actually brings is ephemeral at best.

Stoopid biological instinct is more of a distraction than anything else.

/Yes, I'm great fun at parties.

If we could just invent pills that could turn on and off the sex urge and the need for sleep, think how much we could get done.

It's kind of hard not to when you wake up with morning wood.
Then I have to fap the darn thing into submission.

I think about sex a lot less in the Canadian winter than I do in summer.

Prying girls out of their parkas and long johns is not only a lot of work, you have no way of knowing what's underneath.

Now, in spandex, short-top and jogging season, on the other hand, I'm a road hazard.

Until I read that article I hadn't thought about sex since waking up. While reading that article, I thought about it about a dozen times because the word is printed about a dozen times.

When things like this are brought up, like the old myth that men think about sex every 10 seconds or whatever it was, I think we need to define what "thinking about sex" is. Are we talking full blown fantasies? A background feeling of, "man, I'd really like to fark right now"? Casually thinking, "sex is cool"? A passing thought at hearing or seeing the word? "Think about sex" is waaay too vague.

Seems to me the numbers would be a bit skewed wouldn't they? I mean think about it, researcher goes to Guy A and asks how many times a day do you think about sex. Guy A says gee I don't know I've never really counted so the researcher asks him to count so he can do his "research" and get money from the gov't for some dumb ass reason.
Guy A wakes up with morning wood and thinks man sex would be great right now and remembers he has to count so he says well that's one. This reminds him of his morning wood and thinks man sex would be great right now Ooopps that's two and so on and so on. So everytime he thinks of sex he remembers that he's supposed to count and that reminds him of sex again. So there he is walking around with his man teepee all day thinking of sex, trying to keep count of said thoughts of sex which in turn makes him think of sex.

/Man that's way to much work think I'll just look at pron.

I don't get how food or romantic music (whatever that is) I supposed to get a guy in the mood. Maybe it's supposed to signal to the guy the woman wants sex. Saying "Let's have sex," or simply groping genitalia seems to be more direct and less time wasting.

I'm with ya on that sentiment.

I've thought about sex a dozen times today, but I've only been up for about a half hour.
 
2010-01-10 10:50:14 AM  
I don't think about sex much at all if I'm not having any. Or it's in one of those vague female ways like "Nice-looking guy there!" and that's it. But I'm sure to these "researchers" that counts as "thinking about sex."

All headlines like this are just made up BS to get everybody to read the article. We probably could have figured out that men think about it more than most women. but until they can hook electrodes up to our brains and see our thoughts like dreams, crap like this is just baseless titillation.

/I said "tit"

If you're constantly thinking of sex then you're not married.

You said tit- me thinks about sex again

you did that on purpose, right?

Actually I think about asexual reproduction, constantly. It's maddening really. Gorsh I made dinner, there's sexy jazz playing. Do what you do, whatever that is...SPLIT ALREADY! Baby needs a new pair of shoes!

I agree. Plus, thinking about sex is far more likely for men who have someone readily available to them (as in, "gee, when will we have sex again?" or, "last night was fun...") or women who are also having the same happy thoughts about someone they already know. I don't think most of us are sitting around reading or watching TV reruns and suddenly having spontaneous orgasms. (Depending on which TV show you're watching, I suppose.)

I do all of those every 10 seconds, so I'm really getting a kick.

It's easier to number the times of day when I'm not thinking about sex.
 
2010-01-10 12:00:28 PM  
the real question is how many times a day is your gf thinking about sex (and what can you do to increase that)... that'll drive the happiness factor

That's what I was wondering. Okay sir here is a counter/or pad and pen. Pretend it is not there but for the next month every time you think about sex write it down or press the clicker.
Would it not cause you to think about sex every time you thought about the study causing you to think about it more.
