Sexy Study

Sexual Behavior & Condom Use Among Americans

Here's to cool studies and the Midwest. Researchers from Indiana University just released some juicy reading with The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, which documents contemporary Americans' sexual behaviors and condom usage. The survey included almost 6,000 participants, ages 14 to 94.

You know you're curious about how other people have sex. Act like it's "none of your business" all you want. And, while you're at it, just keep insisting that Playboy has really good articles too. Oh, and the XXX section of the video store just has "humorous titles." You done? Cool. Now, rather than plow through the entire document, here are some of the interesting highlights from the study's findings on sexual behavior:

- About 85 percent of men report that their partner had an orgasm during the most recent sexual experience. Awesome, except that only 64 percent of women report having had an orgasm during their most recent sexual experience.
- Men are more likely to orgasm when sex includes vaginal intercourse, while women are more likely when they engage in a variety of sex acts and when oral sex or vaginal intercourse is included.
- About 7 percent of adult women and 8 percent of men identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual, but higher percentages have had same-gender sexual interactions at some point in their lives.
- U.S. adults seem to love variety. The participants described more than 40 combinations of different types of sexual activity during their most recent sexual encounter.
- Many older adults have active sex lives, including a range of behaviors and partners. (And we're betting that none of their children are willing to accept this.)
- This statistic is pretty shocking if you use Gossip Girl as a barometer for what the kids are doing these days: At a given point in time, most U.S. adolescents aren't engaging in partnered sexual behavior. Of 17-year-old males, 40 percent reported having had vaginal intercourse in the past year while only 27 percent reported having had it in the past 90 days.
- Adults using condoms during intercourse were just as likely to rate the sexual experience positively in terms of arousal, pleasure and orgasm.


And speaking of condoms... the study's findings on condom usage include:

- Condoms are used during only one in every four acts of vaginal intercourse in the U.S. This is one in three acts if you only look at single people. (Clearly more people need to look at pictures of herpes online to get the message.)
- Condoms are used twice as often with casual sexual partners as with relationship partners, which is consistent for both men and women across age groups that span 50 years.
- Condom use is higher among black and Hispanic Americans than among white Americans and those from other racial groups.
- Adults over age 40 exhibit the lowest rates of condom use.

Michael Reece, director of Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion, said, "These data about sexual behaviors and condom use in contemporary America are critically needed by medical and public health professionals who are on the front lines addressing issues such as HIV, sexually transmissible infections and unintended pregnancy." Not to mention the fact that the data's curiously entertaining too.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.
