I’d Rather Just Sleep: Stats About the Sex Lives of Parents
1. How often would you like to have sex?
The majority, 49%, would like to snuggle up “a few times a month.” Only a 1/4 would like to play a few times a week, while the remainder are happy with it as often as when the clocks change.
2. Are you satisfied with your sex life?
Ah, yes. Counterbalancing expectation with reality. Only 1/4 of respondents were truly disappointed with the intimacy in their relationship. Most, 37%, were happy with how things play out, while 35% admit it is okay but needs improvement.3. How often do you do it?Okay, nitty gritty time. We know what you’d like, we know if you’re satisfied with what you have – but what do you have, exactly?Only 6% of us are bunnies, 10% of us are basically abstaining. The rest are divided equally between “once in a while” and “regularly”. When you compare that to the previous questions, it seems like regularly is okay, but once in a while could use some improvement.4. How long did you wait after kids before having sex again?I don’t think we need to ask Jessica Simpson this question. Nearly 3/4 were getting frisky less than 6 months after kids, while half of that group, 37% overall, getting back at it less than 2 months after the kids were born.5. Have you ever cheated on your partner?I always remember how Dr. Phil defines cheating: “if you wouldn’t do it with your partner standing beside you, it’s cheating.” So that moves into office flirting, online chat rooms and more. 16% of respondents to this survey admit they have strayed. However is it the Bill Clinton definition, or Dr. Phil’s?
