9 Surprising Things We Learned About Sex in 2012

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. 2012 was a big year for sex, and we’ve been covering the good, the bad, and the just plain weird all year long. Take a trip down memory lane with us, and keep reading for some of our favorite things we’ve learned about sex in 2012:

1. Penis Size DOES Matter
…Kind of. Bigger is indeed better for women who prefer penile-vaginal intercourse to other types of sex, and same goes for women who have frequent vagina orgasms. Of course, size is just one part of the happy sex package (heh), so we recommend keeping the measuring tape out of the bedroom.


2. You’d Rather Sleep Than Get Laid
A majority of respondents in one study said they’d choose a good night’s sleep over sex…hey, sleep is a precious commodity!


3. Texting DURING Sex Is Apparently a Thing
Another “would you rather?” study found that 15 percent of respondents would rather go without sex than without their iPhones. And 4 percent don’t feel like they should have to choose—they’ve used their iPhones during sex.

I don't understand why everyone is assuming that the iPhones were used for *texting* during sex. I can certainly think of other, way more appropriate uses. ;-)

We will actively avoid temptation:

Even if the seven year itch is real, evidence also suggests that men and women will actually avert their attention from tempting alternatives to their partners — even if this aversion is subconscious.

Texing during sex? How rediculous, you should be watching football!

7:20AM PST on Jan 1, 2013 nothing sacred?? I would say if s/he is texting while you're having sex - you're not doing it right!!
