But some new (December 2011) research by Professor of Psychology Terri Fisher from Ohio State University is throwing a little cold water on those common assumptions.
Her study showed that, while men do think about sex more than women on a daily basis, the number of times men think about sex isn’t nearly as high as we were told in school. (Men do not think about sex every seven seconds).
The reality is closer to 19 times a day for men. And surprising to some, women on average think about sex 10 times per day.
Even more surprising is the range of frequency of thoughts about sex between the genders -- men’s racy suppositions ranged between 1-388 per day, whereas women’s ranged between 1-140.
This means that there aren’t many Americans of either gender who don’t think about sex at all. But the fact remains, although less than imagined, men still think about sex more than women on average.
