Sex: it’s what’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you have an insatiable appetite and a boner that just won’t quit. For the rest of us, it’s something that happens 2-3 times a week, or if you’re Matt Keohan, once a month, with the lights off, although it’s not like the lights matter since any girl worth her salt requires him to wear a paper bag on his head before getting down and dirty.
But just how much time does the average human spend having sex throughout their lifetime? According to a new study by Reebok, it’s nowhere near as long as you’d think – what’s your guess, 5%? 10%? About 500 days’ worth of time?
Nah…it’s even less:
The average human spends less than 1% of his or her life having sex. 0.45%, to be exact.
This only makes up 117 days in total. That’s less than half a year. That’s a teeny tiny amount of our lives, considering sex plays such a big role.
…And while we’re sure friskier people might manage to bump their sex percentage up to 2% of their lives, it would actually be pretty tricky to get anywhere close to the numbers we were imagining…(via)
The study reportedly used more than 9,000 people (none of whom were virgins) from the United States, the U.K., Canada, Germany, France, Mexico, Russia, Korea and Spain, making the data a “pretty good representation of the average.”
Like we said though, that’s just “the average” – just because you’re 30 and haven’t even touched a boob yet doesn’t mean you’re about to start touching a ZILLION boobs to catch up. No no, it just means you’re below-average and will probably total less than 117 days of sex in your lifetime.
Better start playing catch-up.
