How Often Do Men Think About Sex?

The Legend

The average man thinks about sex every seven seconds.

Behind the Legend

Not true.

According to an intense Kinsey Institute study, the average man forms a thought about sex approximately every two minutes, and that he generally ponders the thought for about a minute, 50 seconds before letting go of it.

An associated legend -- that every two minutes women think about shopping -- is blatantly sexist and completely without basis. It has been shown, however, that every two minutes a woman who is with a man will wish that he'd stop staring at her chest.
