This study about sexual misconceptions is eye opening
If you haven’t heard, doing the sex is totally the tits. I do the sex as often as I can. I’ve had at least 5 sexes this week. Anyway, there’s a ton of bullshit and misconceptions floating around when it comes to doing the hibbity-dibbity. Luckily for us, the classy gals over at Bad Girls Bible did a study and dove right into the muck so you could just reap the benefits. Check it out!
Bad Girls Bible Men and women BOTH overestimate penis size!
The average man said his erect penis was 6.22” (158 mm) but guessed the average of other men at 5.67” (144 mm). In other words, men typically think their penis is just over half an inch longer than the average penis.
Women also appear to be affected by the egocentric bias when estimating penis size. They put the average man’s penis length at 5.55” (141 mm), but their best guess for their most recent sexual partner was 0.67” longer, at 6.22” (the same as men’s average estimate for themselves).
In reality, the average erect penis length according to measurements of over 15,000 men is 5.16” (131 mm) – just over 1” shorter than the self-reported penis length of those we surveyed.
Bad Girls Bible Shocker, we all thing we’re better in bed than we are.
If 5 is average, what would you rate your sexual attractiveness out of 10? On average, women who were asked this question rated their looks 6.2, compared to 6.4 for men. While these figures sound fairly modest, when the results are graphed, an obvious bias emerges.
77% of people rated themselves better looking than the average person – a statistical impossibility.
An almost identical proportion (76%) rated their sexual skill as higher than the average person. On average, men scored themselves 7.0, while women said 6.6. Members of both sexes who were less confident with their looks rated their sexual skill lower than those who considered themselves more attractive.
Bad Girls Bible As you would expect, beautiful people are treated very differently.
In 1920, psychologist Edward Thorndike coined the term “the halo effect” to label a bias he’d observed in commanding officers when they were asked to evaluate soldiers. He noticed that soldiers with good physiques were rated more highly on intelligence, leadership, and character. One positive trait was causing the observer to assume they had other positive traits – in effect, they had a halo.
Since then, the bias has been demonstrated in many contexts, and it’s often physical attractiveness that gives subjects a “halo.” Better looking people are assumed to be happier, kinder, more successful, and even better parents.
The opposite is the horn effect – when the presence of a negative trait causes the observer to assume the person has other pitfalls.
Bad Girls Bible We use a little thing called the “horn and halo” effect.
The more attractive a person is, the less likely we are to assume they’ve had an STD and more likely to think they’re more sexually skilled than average. For example, 9% of men thought a woman rated 7.6/10 recently had an STD, compared to 41% for a woman rated 4.9.
33% of women thought a man rated 4.8 had above-average sex skills, compared to 70% for a man rated 6.1.
“Facial profiling” is something we all do every day. In fact, it only takes one-tenth of a second for us to judge someone’s appearance and form a first impression of them. In the past, most judgments based on looks could quickly be updated by other facts gleaned through conversation, but with more of us using dating apps to judge each other based on looks alone, there’s more of a chance we’ll label someone in a way they don’t deserve, favorably or otherwise.
Bad Girls Bible We’re also judging the shit out of people’s sexual preferences.
As before, nothing about the sex lives of the men and women in the photos was known. If survey takers showed no bias when assigning the fetishes to faces, each person would have received 6.25% of the vote. However, stereotyping came into play.
In fact, the dark-haired smoker in photo P was chosen as most likely to enjoy four of the six fetishes. Sixteen percent of people thought she, more than any other person pictured, enjoyed being spanked – 2.5 times more than you’d expect by chance alone. For being tied up, she was chosen more than four times more often than chance.
The woman in photo J, with short blonde hair and distinctive glasses, received the most votes for female domination and was second highest behind P for enjoying roleplay, being tied up and group sex.
Bad Girls Bible Many of us believe our luck in love is directly correlated to an inanimate object. Also, some people are lying about booze.
1 in 4 of us owns an object that we feel has brought us luck in sex or relationships. Most of the time (15%), it’s an item of clothing such as a dress (11%) or underwear (8%). But 2% of us believe wearing a certain pair of socks will make the sex gods smile on us. There’s some evidence to suggest that wearing socks during sex makes us more likely to reach orgasm, so perhaps they could prove lucky.
13% of people feel a particular drink brings them good luck when dating, which could be considered a type of self-fulfilling prophecy. If we assume we’ll do better after having our lucky cocktail, or spraying our favorite perfume, we just might. (Other side effects of alcohol may also help us feel more confident and sexy.)
Lucky charms seem pretty harmless – there’s little risk if they don’t work. But some external influences, unlike lucky charms, might encourage us to do something we might otherwise have avoided.
Bad Girls Bible The sex bandwagon is a real thing.
Of the eight sex acts we asked about, anal sex (receiving) was most associated with the bandwagon effect, as 37.9% of people who had tried it said they’d done so mainly because they saw it in porn or believed everyone else was doing it. While the majority of women (56%) said they hadn’t tried it, it’s true that anal sex has become a lot more popular in recent years. A survey from 2010 found that 40% of women aged 20 to 24 had tried anal sex, up from 16% in 1992.
Rimming and giving anal sex were tried because of their perceived popularity by an almost identical proportion of people as receiving anal (37.7%), while group sex (26.7%) and one night stands (14.2%) were more resistant to the bandwagon effect.
The bandwagon effect isn’t always a bad thing. Checking critical reviews or noticing a thriving online conversation can be great ways to choose your next novel or a movie to see at the weekend. The only problem is when the book or movie sucks. In the case of sex, we measured this by asking the people who tried the eight sex acts whether they regretted the experience.
Bad Girls Bible Oh and of course our cheating was someone else’s fault.
24% of people admitted to cheating on a partner by having sex with another person, while 19% said they’d been cheated on in the same way. There’s a discrepancy there that suggests some of us are blissfully unaware of our partners’ misdeeds, but that’s not what we’re interested in here.
We wanted to know who gets the blame for cheating in the minds of those who cheat and those who are cheated on.
It turns out that 1 in 5 cheaters thought no one was to blame for their disloyalty (not even themselves), compared to only 1 in 20 victims of cheating. Put another way, 2% of people who had been cheated on said their partner had a good reason to cheat, compared to 25% of the partners who cheated.
A “good reason” in the mind of the unfaithful person might be that they’ve fallen out of love with their partner, whereas their partner may be unable to identify any reason, let alone a good one.
