Sex on his mind, all the time.
From the GQ site on 3/13/16:
Quick: What are you thinking about right now? Well, given that you’re reading this article, it’s probably sex. But there’s a good chance you were thinking about it anyway. After all, men think about sex every seven seconds, right?
That’s more than 500 times an hour and more than 8,000 times during the approximately 16 hours you’re awake. We can only imagine how those numbers fluctuate during sleep.
But there’s no real research to back up this oft-cited stat. And while people often attribute the myth to research by the Kinsey Institute, the actual research shows that while men think about sex a lot (and yes, more often than women), every seven seconds is a gross exaggeration. When Kinsey researchers asked men and women how often they think about sex, 54 percent of men said they think about sex several times a day, 43 percent responded a few times per week or just a few times per month, and 4 percent said less than once a month. Meanwhile, 19 percent of women said they thought about sex every day or several times a day, 67 percent responded a few times per week or a few times a month or, and 14 percent said less than once a month.
