I was reading a free London newspaper recently (yes I was that bored) and an article on the statistics of buying sex caught my eye. obviously statistics like any form of data collection and analysis have their weaknesses but it did throw up some interesting points.
One in ten men admitted to seeing a prostitute while just one women in 100 admitted to having full sex. Can this be believed or are women still conditioned into being thought of as sluts if they enjoy sex with too many partners in the eyes of society?
A third of men said they had been to a strip club, compared with just one in twenty women. I would imagine this is a strip club aimed at men so in this case could understand that, though I myself being an admirer of the female form have not only been to strip clubs but had a private dance. I am not ashamed to admit it.
Again more men than women had bought pornography but this really did not surprise me. I personally am not a visual person, I like erotic media, particularly books which allow me to imagine much on my own. In my opinion men are more visual than men. I prefer to either be actually getting up to no good or to be doing something else. I cannot get off on watching other people at it...any women reading this do give your thoughts!!
Most importantly the survey found women to be more reserved when it came to sex, giving more socially desirable answers. Again, why is this? Are we still conditioned by the rules of society and conditioning or are we just less confident with sex (I know that does not apply to me!). Are women still slightly frightened of their sexuality? Or are we just more private about sex than men? Do comment people. I am interested. And yes, I know this is sex and not spanking but in some cases (as in my partner and I), they are inter-linked.
