Sexy census: How satisfied is Atlanta?

The good people at Trojan kindly sent over some interesting statistics from their “sex census” this week. I think you would be interested in hearing how Atlanta ranked! Let’s jump right in shall we?

Apparently Atlanta is one of three cities most satisfied with their sex lives: While Atlanta trends towards the bottom of the list for frequency of sex per year (109), they do trend high when it comes sexual satisfaction, at 80 percent satisfied.

Atlanta (33%) is one of two cities most likely to say they are having just the right amount of sex.

Atlanta is among the least likely to be satisfied with the effectiveness of vibrators (61%).

Atlanta is the city most likely to look for information about
having sex from the Internet (35%).

Atlantans (29%) were most likely to say they would like to have sex on a beach.

These are a few that kind of caught my eye. I wonder why I never get to participate in these sexy surveys!

They also report that 19 percent of Americans have engaged in sexting and 19 percent have had online sex. 18 percent have had sex with someone they met over the internet 10 percent have discussed sex on Facebook and/or Twitter.

While overall sexual satisfaction in America remains high, researchers found a great deal of variability in satisfaction based on relationship status. In fact, married couples reported much higher satisfaction rates (82 percent married, 71 percent single) while singles reported higher sexual frequency (130 times per year single, 109 times per year among married couples).

What do you think about these sexy stats?

What connection do you think region and geography have with our
sexual behavior, habits, and/or attitudes?

This is a sexy topic but do keep Happy Friday!

Well, I’m NOT satisfied…..I would happen to be dating the one woman in Georgia with the lowest sex drive ever! Everything else about her I love…it’s a frustrating thing and I don’t want to leave her…yet! I guess it’s something that we will have to continue to work on, but I don’t know!

I just wish that men in my age group (45+) would just acknowledge that their stuff is not what it use to be… there are a lot of other ways to please a woman. I can tell you from experience jumping up and down in it in a attempt to stay erect is not it. No, Viagra, etc. is not necessary… just slow down and don’t be intimidated by a toy.

Very interesting topic today, Wise. I’m particularly interested in seeing what the regulars have to say about impact region/geography may have had on the survey.

Hang in there, Simple. The billy goats gruff will be along soon to vanquish those trolls. :)

Millions of women are keen on having sex on the beach (ala Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in “From Here to Eternity”). If you are too shy to try it, just go to Home Depot, purchase some 100 grit sandpaper, go home and sit in a spa tub, and rub your genitals raw with the sandpaper. It’s the same effect, at a fraction of the cost. Believe me, the fantasy is far better than the reality.

Bottom line is that sex sells and is on everyone’s mind, including mine. To simply push it away as shallow and primitive is short sighted and you obviously have your blinders on. Did you know that the internet porn industry makes more money than ALL other internet venure COMBINED? Sex is great and very healthy. Sexual partners can be very good, just sorta good, bad and very bad. Maybe it’s a way of being connected or maybe it’s the relentless pursuit of the orgasm. It’s different from person to peron. Want to light up the blogosphere? Just bring up sex as a topic and watch the comments go haywire. Sometimes you just think you yourself “All I need is a good job, good health and a great f*k.”

Morning,

Simple Man – I was gonna recommend you let the trolls have at it before blogging…lol

On topic:

What do you think about these sexy stats?

I don’t. When I see “statistics” for any subject matter, the numbers are ALWAYS skewed. Depends on who’s polling and their reasons. Even though not sex related, leave it to statistics, AA are number one in the leading cause of any and everthing that’s gone wrong, can go wrong or went wrong…lol

What connection do you think region and geography have with our
sexual behavior, habits, and/or attitudes?

No connection.

Lucinda: Viagra’s good if there are not health issues. Unfortunately, a lot of black men have high blood pressure, and I’d hate to see a guy fall out… Viagra’s good if there are no health issues.

Simple – You may want to edit that to “freaky class” come lunch time because i’m sure it’ll heat up in here soon with this topic. lol

ITL – Good mawnin yawnin to you too. I came in a bit quietly because of all the ruckus by the trolls. It’ll die down soon enough.

On topic – I can’t say i’ve ever really given it much thought on what a specific region would have on ones sex life. My guess would be warmer climate areas would be one to have more sex since the weather would encourage more skimpy dressed women….hence leading to more testosterone driven fellas trying to get in them skins. Folks tend to be a little more laid back during the colder times of the year, sort of like a light hibernation.

As far as attitudes about sex & folks having more fulfilling sex lives, my guess is that it isn’t as taboo as it might have been in the past. With the explosion of the internet, adult movies, the accesibility of adult material people have that lifelife to research more pointers on the matter. We have become a society all about satisfying whatever urge, want, desire we have…that fast-food world of I want it now. So who in their right mind would want to keep dealing with someone who is NOT hitting the mark in the bedroom? Sex is thought to be a pleasurable thing…why would I keep doing the do and not getting anything out of it?

The beau and I were talking about why folks bust nutz when it’s thought to be that the purpose if for procreation…not to go around humping everybody that looks like they have that THIGH-YOW!

On topic….

Sex surveys are always gonna be off, because in this country, the taboos are such that it is hard to get a honest answer out of folks…Some are gonna overstate their prowess / frequency. Others are gonna play it down… Alot of people are just not that honest or in touch when it comes to bedroom arobics.

As far as regions having an effect on sex….When teh weather is cold and jacked up, what would YOU rather be doing??? I love summertime because of the skimpy clothes and outside activities, But when its cold and miserable outside, what beats a raging fire and a really sexy woman and a couple, three free hours????

I have an idea:

1.) Ask girls out for dates only if you think they are potential wives.
2.) Wait until you are married to have sex
3.) Stay faithful while you are married

These ideas eliminate adultery, disease, cheating, lying, potential gun and knife play and also lengthen your life expectancy.

Sex has always been around and always will be around. It consumes some more than others. I think that it’s not necessarily the geography, but more as the AVAILABILITY and MINDSET of the people being polled. More women than men in an area can lead to men having more sex because of the numbers. Both women and men can be good or bad in the sack. I’ve had some partners that I remember to this very day. There are others that make me think “Well, that was a complete waste of time.” It’s all about mindeset, open mindedness and whether you perceive sex as an adventure to be explored or just something you do when you have a SO. Some women think that sex is for men to enjoy and for women to endure. But times are a-changin!

DawginLex, great idea and it works in theory, but there are thousands of years of history that say in ain’t never gonna happen. Some folks even say that marriage is outdated and the papers/ceremony are only good for the “feel good” moment. I, for one, tried it twice and decided that it breeds boredom, complacency and is a daggar in the heart of the passion in a relationship. If I wanted just a companion that loved me unconditionally, but didn’t complain, whine or nag me to all ends of the earth, I’ll get a dog. Getting a partner that wants to have sex is the easy part.

Finally a topic I can relate to. If you aren’t into or don’t consider sexual relations a vital part, You can go on with your life. Having a steady partner is something I need to have and many nights if he isn’t available, I handle it myself. I just sleep better afterwards and every other aspect of my day is shown in a good light. I think clearer, have a more positive outlook and am more relaxed. Yeah, it’s pretty damn important to me.

Trust me, before I was married, I did the internet thing for about nine months and it was nothing short of an orgy. I met women from all over the SE (most of the time, they drove to my place) and there were times when we hadn’t been together for more than an hour and we were bumpin and grindin. We would basically do it as many times as we could squeeze into a weekend and then she would leave. I rarely spoke to them ever again. A couple of times, nothing happened, but by and large, everyone’s heading should have said “Want to screw until I can’t see straight. No strings attached.” I shoulda bought stock in Trojan during that time. And some of them looked AWESOME, surprisingly enough.
