Bump and Grind or Pick and Roll?
When some men hear the phrase "Big O" do they think about the sexual satisfaction of their partner or do they think about Oscar Robertson, the inventor of the triple-double?
A recent poll conducted during the summer by GQ magazine reveals that one in five American men has turned down hot, steamy sex to watch sports on TV.
That's 200 of the 1,000 men between the ages of 25 and 55 across the country whom pollsters talked with this summer.
Veteran sex researcher Ed Laumann of the University of Chicago said that while this statistic may dismay many women, "There's another way of looking at it."
Put me in coach... I'm ready to play
"It means that 80% of the men turned off their televisions," Laumann said. "And when you consider that the average encounter in an established relationship lasts about 15 minutes, I don't know why they'd miss a ballgame."
GQ's first-ever "state of the American man" poll also suggests women should not give up on men, even sports-obsessed men. Instead, they should emulate "Desperate Housewives" star Nicollette Sheridan, whose little-white-towel trick in a saucy "Monday Night Football" ad has gotten the NFL's jockstraps in a bunch. A solid 83% of the men polled said they feel "like more of a man" when a woman propositions them and 53% said they're turned on by sexually aggressive women.
A solid 83% of the men polled said they feel "like more of a man" when a woman propositions them and 53% said they're turned on by sexually aggressive women. Overall, 72% of American men said they were satisfied with their sex life - and they're hot for their wives. Told to choose between being stranded on a desert isle with their wives or their best male buddies, 96% chose the missus. And 92% said they would marry the same woman again. Only 13% of the married men were envious of their single friends. And 73% said they had had a chance to cheat on their wives - and didn't!
More than half the men polled said they had slept with 10 or fewer women. And 14% said they had had sex with just one woman - the same percentage as those who claim to have slept with more than 30.
So they love the one they're with - a lot.
Forty-two percent said they have sex two or three times a week, and 15% say it's four or more times a week. At the other end of the sexual scale, 26% say they have gone a year or more without sex.
There are also a lot of straight guys with queer eyes.
While only 2% acknowledged being gay, 23% admitted having had a homosexual encounter, 22% said they would be flattered if a man hit on them and 8% fantasize about hooking up with another fella.
GQ magazine also presented men with a list of role models, and Bill Gates came out on top, proving that money trumps a bad haircut any day. President Bush came in second, followed by Derek Jeter and former President Bill Clinton.
