Here's the Average Amount of Sex People Have at Different Ages

 

Time to feel really good or really bad about your sex life.

 

The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University just released the results of a new study about how much sex people have at different ages.  Time to see how you measure up . . .

 

 

From ages 18 to 29, people have sex an average of 112 times a year, or a little more than twice a week.

 

From 30 to 39, people have sex 86 times a year, which is roughly one or two times a week.

 

 

From 40 to 49, people have sex a little more often than once a week, at 69 times a year.

 

 

And from ages 50 on . . . well, we don't know.  They didn't extend their survey to people over 50, perhaps to shield you from thinking about what your parents or grandparents are up to.

US Men's Condom Use Is on the Rise

More than one-third of adult men in the United States now say they use condoms during sex, according to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The report authors surveyed more than 20,000 men and women ages 15 to 44 from 2011 to 2015, and compared their responses to those from a similar survey in 2002. The researchers asked the participants about their use of male condoms and other methods of contraception during intercourse with a partner of the opposite sex within the past year.

About one-third of the men, or 33.7 percent, said they used a condom the last time they had sex. That's up from 29.5 percent in 2002, the report said.

Among the women in the 2011-2015 survey, 23.8 percent said the guy they had sex with used a condom the last time they had sex. That's nearly identical to the finding from the 2002 survey, in which 23.4 percent of the women said the man used a condom the last time they had sex.

"The increase in condom use among men … is 'good news' because it is a positive step toward reducing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States," study author Casey E. Copen, of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Live Science in an email. [The 10 Most Surprising Sex Statistics]

However, although condom use is increasing overall among men (ages 15 to 44), there was not an increase in use among U.S. teens, who have one of the highest rates of STIs, Copen said. (The rate of condom use among male teens ages 15 to 19 has remained around 55 percent since 2002.)

Considering there's been an increase in STIs — including chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis infections — in recent years in the United States, "there is still more work to do to reduce the spread of these infections," Copen said.

The higher rate of condom use reported by men compared with women may be due, in part, to the greater number of contraceptive choices available to women, including birth control pills, implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs), Copen said. "Women have more choices [than men] when it comes to contraceptive methods that can be used to prevent pregnancy," Copen said.

 In addition, women may be more likely to have male partners who are older (over 44) and less likely to use condoms, compared with men in the study, Copen said.

Although women's reports of male condom use in the study did not show an increase compared with reports in 2002, previous studies found a rise in other types of female contraception, including a fivefold increase in IUDs and subdermal implants over the past decade, Copen said. Although those devices are meant to prevent pregnancy, they don't shield against STIs.

The study also found that, for both men and women, reports of condom use within the past month varied depending on the respondent's number of sexual partners and their relationship status.

For example, among the women who were engaged, married or cohabiting with their partner, 12 percent said their male partner always used a condom during sex. But among the women who had "just met" their partner, or only went out with their partner "once in a while," 43 percent indicated condom use.

For men, 14 percent of those who were engaged, married or cohabiting said they always used a condom when they had sex, compared with 60 percent of those who had "just met" their partner.

However, even if condoms are used, they are often used inconsistently, the study found. Among the women who said their partner used a condom in the past month, one-quarter (25.8 percent) said the condom was used for only part of the time during sex, meaning it was put on after they started having sex or taken off before ejaculation. Future surveys will examine condom use problems in more detail, the researchers said.

The report was published today (Aug. 10) by the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics.

Four Things That Sabotage Great Sex

 

Here are four things that can keep you from having great sex . . .

 

 

1.  Babies.  Being pregnant and giving birth can WRECK your sex drive.  And after that it's even WORSE.

 

 

2.  Bad Communication.  When communication isn't good in a relationship overall, it almost ALWAYS follows into the bedroom.

 

 

3.  Holding sex hostage.  Meaning, you only do it if they helped you out around the house.

 

 

4.  Not knowing yourself.  It's impossible to have REALLY good sex if you don't know your own body.

Men Like Dating Smarter Women . . . But Only Long Distance

 

 Could you date a woman who's smarter than you?  What if she couldn't make you look dumb in front of your friends . . . because she wasn't THERE?

 

 

A new study out of the University of Buffalo in New York found men DO like women who are smarter than them . . . but only in long-distance relationships.  When they're dating someone face-to-face, they prefer a woman who's not quite so sharp.

 

 

The researchers say it's because men like the IDEA of a really smart woman . . . but for a lot of them, it's only cool when the relationship is hypothetical.  When it comes down to it and you're together in person, you can be intimidated by qualities like intelligence.

 

 

A clinical psychologist named Suzana Flores says, quote, "If you perceive someone as superior in any way, you tend to be a little more on your toes or feel that you have to be careful with what you say.

 

 

"If someone is less intelligent . . . you may feel more comfortable around that person.  People are looking for more of a comfort in their personal lives."

 

 

The study didn't test whether WOMEN prefer smarter men in long-distance relationships, and less intelligent ones when they're face-to-face.
