A new study has revealed that 76% of Americans blabbed to their friends about the juicy details of their sex lives. Pass the megaphone. That means your partner’s friends know way more embarrassing things about you than you previously thought.
Penetrating sex toy store EdenFantasys.com surveyed 2,000 people for their “Talking Sex” study which asked “Is there such thing as privacy in the bedroom? Apparently not. The survey said that most people spent nearly “four hours a month talking about their sex lives in some way.” The average respondent, they reported, spoke with “three separate people about the sex life they share with their current partner.” That means at least three people heard some intimate TMI about you.
And you might even be guilty of yapping yourself; I know I am. (Like the time I told my girlfriends that my guy’s monster penis was so huge I practically needed a shoehorn to get it in there.)
Most people talked in person, followed by on the phone, via text message (“Blowjob was so intense my jaw hurts”), followed by “over a few drinks.”
75% of those surveyed said their opinion of their friend’s boyfriend or girlfriend changed (for better or worse) after hearing the intimate, dishy details. Topping the embarrassing convo was the 21% who “complained to friends about the size or tightness of their current partner’s genitals.” Try walking into a room with the three people who already know what’s going on with your business downstairs.
So what did the survey say people discussed the most? The “Top ten things people discussed about their sex lives” were:
1.) “Whether I was satisfied.”
2.) “The setting of the encounter” (Couch, bed, your boss’s desk.)
3.) “How long the encounter lasted.
4.) “Who made the first move.”
5.) “Things they did to turn you on.”
6.) “Whether I was satisfied.”
7.) “Positions used.”
8.) “Things I’d wished we’d done.”
9.) “Type of foreplay incorporated.”
10.) “Embarrassing moments.”
The one interesting take-away from this survey is that 3/4 of the population has no problem talking about their sex lives with others. We just hope that the majority of people will start discussing their sex lives more with the people they are having sex with!
And now I know why my ex-boyfriend’s best friend kept making onion ring jokes, then told my boyfriend’s parents the story over Thanksgiving dinner. (I bought onion rings once and did “onion ring toss” on my boyfriends’s penis, then ate them off.) Thanks for sharing.
