Most everyone engages in locker room smack at some time or another, but if you’ve ever wondered what other guys are really doing in the bedroom, you’re not alone. “’Am I normal?’ is probably the biggest sex question out there,” says Yvonne K. Fulbright, Ph.D., Astroglide’s sexual health guru and author of Sultry Sex Talk to Seduce Any Lover. “Guys want to know how they compare.” Read on to find out if you’re the tiger you always knew you were—or to just to shed self doubt about your own preferences and performance.
1. How often are you doing it?
The average American adult has sex 120 times a year, according to a Trojan condom survey. Despite the one-day-in-three batting average, 63 percent said they wished they were having even more.
2. Are you using condoms?
While only 28 percent of men say they use condoms (come on dudes, get with it!), their reports of sexual arousal, ease of erection, overall pleasure, and orgasm were pretty much in line with those who ride bareback, according to Indiana University’s Center for Sexual Health Promotion.
3. Do you take it outside?
Fifty-seven percent of Americans have had sex outdoors or in a public place, according to an ABC News poll. While your office meeting room probably isn’t such a brilliant venue, seek out more discrete open-air opportunities. “Take to the woods,” says Fulbright. “The great outdoors is the perfect place to get it on, especially with a blanket.”
4. Would you pay for sex?
Maybe only this many guys will admit it? According to the Kinsey Institute, 15 percent of men—and three in 10 single men aged 30 and older—have paid for a prostitute.
5. Where do you most want to do it?
The mile-high club is definitely an enviable membership: When Trojan condoms asked men where they’d most like to have sex but haven’t yet, 33 percent said on an airplane.
6. Are you satisfying your partner?
Better check to make sure you’re both on the same page: About 85% of men think their partner had an orgasm during their last encounter, while only 64% of women said they actually did, according to Indiana University research.
7. What’s your favorite sexual position?
Despite what you may have heard about the Dirty Sanchez, most guys’ favorite bedroom trick is surprisingly predictable: Twenty seven percent prefer the classic missionary position, followed by doggy style at 24 percent.
8. Have you cheated on your partner?
We all shake our heads at the high-profile men who stray (here's looking at you, Petraeus) but guess what? A whopping 23 percent of guys have cheated on their mate, according to research published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior. Other interesting findings from that same study: Women cheat almost as much as men (19 percent say they've done it), and people with sexual performance anxiety are more likely to step out.
9. Are you sexting?
Anthony Weiner may have been ahead of his time. When it comes to sexting, only 19% of Americans say they’ve done it. Should you give it a go? “There are many situations when it’s inappropriate,” says Fulbright. “Don’t sext if a person is in a business meeting or driving. You don't want to get them all fired up at the wrong time!”
11. Do you do it on the first date?
Twenty-nine percent of Americans say they have, and almost as many have had an unexpected sexual encounter with someone new, according to ABC News. If you’re game to move fast, “make sure the expiration date is good on the condoms, they’ve been stored properly, and you’ve got lube handy,” says Fulbright.
12. What’s your number?
Average are high, of course, since the Wilt Chamberlins of the world throw off the curve. But believe it or not, most guys aren’t the studs they like to let on that they are. According to CDC data, the median number of sex partners for men ages 25-44 is six. That’s it. And only 28 percent of dudes have slept with 15 or more women.
13. Do you always have an orgasm?
According to Sex in America: A Definitive Survey, three-quarters of sexually active men say they orgasm every time, but it’s normal if you don’t. “The reasons can be physiological, psychological, emotional, or relational,” says Fulbright. “Some are worrisome, and others aren’t. Being tired and stressed is a temporary issue, whereas you should talk to your doctor if you suspect health problems are the root cause.”
15. Does married sex suck?
Putting a ring on it actually ups your chances of a satisfying sex life: Eighty two percent of married guys say they’re happy with theirs, compared to only 71 percent of singles. “Married guys know their partners better, so they know how to turn them on,” says Fulbright.
16. Are you into porn?
A quarter of guys say they’ve visited a porn site on the web in the last thirty days, according to the journal Sexuality and Culture. Far more shocking—and inconsistent? More than half of all of the spending on the Internet is estimated to be related to sex.
17. How often do you masturbate?
Adjusting the antenna, charming your snake, fiddling the flesh flute—whatever you want to call it—guys say they masturbate an average of 12 times per month, according to British research.
18. Do you wish you lasted longer?
You better betcha other guys are with you: There are more than 450,000 Google searches every month for premature ejaculation, and about one in three guys in the U.S. is dealing with the issue, says research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
19. Does your partner like your penis?
Much male brainpower has been spent worrying about the length, the size, and how many times you can make it rise. Here’s the reality: Eighty-five percent of women are satisfied with their partner's penis size, even though only 55 percent of guys like the size of their package, according to the British Journal of Urology. BTW: About 90% of women prefer a wide penis to a long one.
