Sex on the brain

How many times a day do you think about sex?

A recent study found collegiate guys thinking about sex a median of 19 times a day (ranging from 1 to 388 times), and women thinking about sex a median of 10 times a day (range 1 to 140). How many times a day do you think about sex? What kind of thoughts? Is this good?


I never think about sex. I only think about food.

Five to 10 times a day non-full moon. Forty-plus times a day when the moon is full.

I probably think about it 50 times. Usually it's about a porn I saw.

Once a minute. So, 60 an hour, awake about 16 hours a day, so 960 times a day. Since I'm too busy answering this stupid question, it is probably down two to three times compared to a regular day.

Six times. I think about how I like to have sex. How sexy someone is. How big this guy is. I wonder how he looks naked. I bet he's good in bed —Usual, 33, partners: "no way," gay


Twenty-four. Dirty ones. 

—Anonymous, 29, 30 partners, straight


Sexual thoughts range from 50-150 a day. It depends on how busy I am — and it's all good.
