Sex Behavior in America
ASk the average person and they will tell you they pack alot into their day. Whether its groceries, paying bills, going to the gym, or sex. That’s right for most U.S. adults, sex is not something scheduled — rather, it occurs spontaneously according to recent survey.
Eli Lilly and Co. sponsored the online poll, conducted by SKIM Healthcare, which collected information on sexual behavior among men and women ages 34 years and older from 13 countries — Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
In the United States, 76 percent said they do not plan ahead for sex, compared to the global average of 86 percent. Seventy-one percent of those ages 34-45 said they do not plan for sex, while 79 percent of those ages 46-60 and 77 percent of those age 60 and older said they have spontaneous sex. North Americans led the poll with 38 percent of U.S. male respondents and 22 percent of female respondents saying they have discussed sexual health and performance issues with their doctors.
One-third of respondents indicated they used the Internet as a source of sexual health information. Twelve 12 percent preferred books, 11 percent said magazines and 10 percent said doctors were their go-to sources.
