I would like to debunk the so-called statistic or myth that every man thinks about sex every six seconds.
Think about it: would society evolve at all if we thought about sex that much? Probably not. I love women and all, but every man has his priorities on other things than sex. There's food, after all.
But more importantly, SCIENCE. So excuse me for trying to make the world a better place, and not focusing solely on my primal mating instincts.Mancouch Says:
Most men will openly admit that they enjoy sex and think about it on a regular basis, but the real interval is probably closer to a few times per day, not every six seconds. Really, who the hell came up with that number? Look at these
Every 24 hour day is equal to 86,400 seconds. 86,4000 / 6 = 14,400. Assuming our brains are doing some sort of thinking even while we're sleeping, that would mean men are thinking about sex nearly 15,000 times a day, in some form or another. How is that even possible? How could any of us get through the day without having our respective poles pointing north all the time?
That said, it's a natural thing to think about, but not to the excessive point the numbers seem to suggest. Obviously, our frontal lobes have allowed us the ability to do more than constantly act on our carnal instincts. We develop interests in music, art, science (as suggested above), and any other number of productive, non-sexual fields.
Frankly, it sounds like someone rigged the numbers to make all men seem like brutish, salivating pigs. A scorned woman, perhaps?
Either way, this statistic doesn't really mean anything. Someone could've taken a random sampling of men hanging outside a strip club and skewed the language. In the end, all that matters is the individual. I know I don't generally think about sex more than a few times a day, at least not consciously. And if that's the same for men across the board, then these numbers mean nothing.
So another two cheers for interests that aren't sex, men! Let's show the world we're more than just a good lay. How often do you think about sex?
