    Sexual Habits In The US - Survey Results

    I stumbled on this today:



    I wondered - what meaning can we draw from these statistics? And how do these data compare against your preconceived notions of sexual behavior?

    My thoughts:

    • Women masturbate less than I would have thought. The numbers never seem to normalize. The closest the genders get is the 25-29 age group.
    • I'm not sure if the "masturbated with partner" data point includes mutual masturbation or not. If not, then I'm surprised it's so high. On the other hand, if it does include manual stimulation of your partner, then I'm shocked the number is so low.
    • 20-24 is clearly the experimentation zone for women, that's not just a myth. The "gave oral to women" and "received oral from women" numbers, for women, both climb to 9% in that age range, where they generally track much lower at all other age groups.
    • The "Received Penis in Anus" stat was interesting on the edges. The 4% of 14-15 girls is still too high in my view - I just have trouble accepting that as normal behavior for a jr.high girl. I was surprised to see 4% of 60-69 year old women as well - I would think at that age, the body would be really ill-suited to that.
    • A comparison of Men's "Inserted Penis into Anus" stat and the Women's "Received Penis in Anus" stat. They never really line up in real time. There seems to be a lag time of one age group between the two, all along the way. For example, the high water mark for men is 27% in the 25-29 age group, and the high water mark for women is 23% in the 20-24 age group. Hmm. (Edit: I realize the men's stat includes gay sex, so I'm not expecting them to equalize. I'm just noticing the trends, and the way they track comparatively)

    I was surprised to see that for vaginal intercourse the percentage of women was significantly higher than the percentage of men in the 18-19 and 20-14 age groups.

    If my experience in that age group is anything to go by, it might be because a lot of different women are having vaginal intercourse with the same men. The other logical thing to conclude is that they're having sex with older men. If you look at the numbers as a group, that seems to be a safe bet.

    And Polemarch -- I think the young women having anal sex might be Christians saving their "virginity" for marriage. Have you heard of saddlebacking?

    I knew a Muslim young woman who did essentially the same thing.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Based on the percentages, there must be a fair number of serial sodomizers out there. A much higher percentage of women are receiving than men giving. Maybe they included male porn stars in the survey?

    Ah, I hadn't considered that.

    I'd personally agree with that. I feel like my sexual experimentation ship has sailed by now. At around that age I was more open to possible experiences with women, threesomes, mild kink, and open relationships. Over time you just start viewing certain things as a hassle and a disruption. I'm not going to realize now at the age of 34 that I want to start dating women or having threesomes. It's more likely that I would discover I don't actually want to have sex at all. That is to say, the sexual scope seems to reduce itself with age.

    This post is a really eloquent illustration of why younger women go for males aged 30 - 39.
