Sex stereotypes

In a discussion in a locked post, someone mentioned those stupid "statistics" about how often people think about sex. Because I am incurably nosy (and also procrastinating), I decided to make a poll.

Please answer based on your direct experience, which means you and people you've been sexually involved with, rather than what you think is true for most people.

How often do you really think about sex?

All the time
2(3.8%)
Several times an hour
4(7.7%)
Several times a day
24(46.2%)
Most days
13(25.0%)
A few times a week
5(9.6%)
A few times a month
1(1.9%)
Occasionally
3(5.8%)
Almost never
0(0.0%)

It depends!

... on the time of the month
0(0.0%)
... on some external chemical effect (eg medicines, hormone treatment)
0(0.0%)
... on my relationship situation
2(4.1%)
... on my general mental state
9(18.4%)
... on the time of year
0(0.0%)
... on some other factor
1(2.0%)

It's different at different phases of my life.

I used to think about sex more when I was younger.
6(13.3%)
I think about sex more now than earlier in my life (since puberty).
4(8.9%)
I think about sex more when I'm in a relationship.
2(4.4%)
I think about sex more when I'm getting into a relationship / have a crush on someone.
6(13.3%)
I think about sex more when I'm frustrated.
2(4.4%)
I think about sex more when I'm single.
0(0.0%)

In your experience, it is true that:

Men have a higher sex drive than women.
0(0.0%)
Men think about sex more than women do.
1(2.2%)
Men are more likely to focus on genitals whereas women are interested in the whole body.
0(0.0%)
Women like foreplay and cuddling more than men.
0(0.0%)
It is more difficult for women to have orgasms than men.
2(4.3%)
Women are more likely to be able have multiple orgasms than men.
2(4.3%)
Men are more responsive to visual erotic stimuli than women are.
0(0.0%)
Women are better able to handle being interrupted in the middle of sex than men can.
0(0.0%)
Women are more likely than men to form emotional attachments to their sexual partners.
0(0.0%)
Men seek out more sexual partners than women do.
0(0.0%)
Women are more often sexually submissive than men.
0(0.0%)
Being male or female has no effect on any of these things.
3(6.5%)


As usual, feel free to argue with the poll, suggest options I've left out, clarify beyond the detail of the poll options, etc.
