Men think about sex every 7 seconds
Every seven seconds may seem extreme but it’s a common factoid that gets thrown around — but is it true?
Not so fast — or so often.
This is false.
“If you look at the research, men are actually thinking about sex twice per hour. It’s nowhere near the every seven second theory,” said Lehmiller. “And the other half of that is that people think women never think about sex. But if you look at the research women are thinking about sex at least once an hour. Men are certainly thinking about it more than women but women are thinking about sex a lot more than people assume.”
