Courtney Bee, Sexual Health Examiner, cites a recent survey showing Americans rate their overall sexual satisfaction as merely above average, with the majority giving their sex lives a 6.5 out of 10. In addition, survey participants report having sex 84 times a year (around seven times a month). Only a miniscule one fifth (21 percent) of respondents say they are “extremely satisfied” with their sex lives and one in three (30 percent) report being generally “dissatisfied.”
According to findings from a new Trojan Brand Condoms sex survey released earlier this month, two-thirds of Americans (62 percent) wish they were getting busy more often, while a small number of lucky SOBs report having too much sex (4 percent). And cliché but true: Men (73 percent) are more likely than women (53 percent) to want sex more frequently. A goal-oriented 75 percent insist “sex without an orgasm is like a Fourth of July without fireworks.”
The good news? Eighty three percent of respondents believe good sex is a vital part of overall health and wellbeing, and thus 76 percent say they’re searching for ways to make their sex lives more thrilling. Courtney’s suggestion? Toys! Roleplay! Spankings! Lingerie that would make a Victoria’s Secret model gasp! In other words, anything that branches out from the standard vanilla protocol. Scandalouswomen suggests a variety of men, of course! No one’s going to put the sprinkles on your vanilla cone. It’s up to you to add the crunch factor.
Researchers at the University of Florence have found that among the benefits of moderate wine consumption, women may also experience a kick to their sex drive.
The study was conducted on 800 participants, all women between the ages of 18 and 50. Those who drank a glass of wine a day, and those who drank less than that, or other alcohol in small amounts, were given questionnaires.
Each survey had 19 questions about drinking habits, sexual habits, and lifestyle.
Of those surveyed, the women who drank a glass of red wine a day scored highest, and seemed to have the most active and healthy sex drives.
“While this finding needs to be interpreted with some caution, it nevertheless suggests a potential relationship between red wine consumption and better sexuality,” a spokesperson said.
