What is the average penis size, and do women care? Who has the most sex? How often? What’s the horniest and least horniest countries? Can men give themselves blowjobs? …
We find answers to all these questions and more interesting sexual statistics and facts:
Penis Size – Recent data indicates an average erect penis length is between 5 – 6 inches, with average flaccid penis length ranging from 1 and 4 inches and according to the Kinsey Institute, the biggest erect penis on record measures 13 inches.
Frequency of Sex – 18-29 year olds have sex an average of 112 times per year, 30-39 year olds an average of 86 times per year, and 40-49 year olds an average of 69 times per year.
The French, Greeks, Hungarians were having the most sex, while those in Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore were the least sexually active according to a Durex Survey in 2004.
In the 2008 Durex survey Greece, Brazil, and Russia topped the list in percentage of respondents claiming to have sex at least weekly, whereas Japan, the US, and Nigera were the at the bottom of the list.
So, although there are some movers and shakers among countries, it appears that Greece is consistently a horny & productive country and the average Japanese citizen not getting much action.
Orgasm Frequency – More experienced lovers are most likely to have an orgasm every time they have sex, with 48% of those in the 35-plus age group claiming to do so, compared to 32% of 16-20 year olds. (Durex Survey 2004)
Sexual Fantasies – How often do men fantasize about sex? Not every 7 seconds like the old wives’s tale suggests. The Kinsey Institute reports that 54% of men think about sex at least every day, 43% think about it a few times a week or month, and 4% once a month or less.
Gay Population – The gay and lesbian communities have long adopted 10% as the portion of the population that is homosexual. However, a series of recent national studies indicate that only about 2-3% of sexually-active men and 1-2% of sexually-active women are currently engaging in same-gender sex. With the largest concentrations of homosexuals located in the large cities (close to 10%).
Masturbation – In a study of undergraduate college students, 98% of men and 44% of women reported having ever masturbated. Are there really that many adult women who have never masturbated? According to the Kinsey Institute, masturbation is more common among white-collar workers than blue-collar workers.
Bonus Stat: Three out of a thousand men (0.3%) are well-hung enough for self-fellatio.
