Man Myth: Men think About Sex Every 7 Seconds

Who knows where this one got started, but it sure sounds right. Right? Wrong.

7 seconds is about the same amount of time we go between breaths, it seems next to impossible that guys could think about sex as often as they breathe. If you do the math, according to the myth, it adds up to having over 8,000 sexually explicit thoughts through out the day.

In one of the nation’s most comprehensive surveys about sexual habits in the United states, completed by Edward Laumann and colleagues in 1994, 43 percent of men reported thinking about sex not even once a day, but rather somewhere between a couple times a week to a couple times a month.

I am sure that most of us have met some men who make this myth seem true, but it is not.
