How Long Should You Wait to Have Sex?
We all know the third date rule. Third date is the sex date, right? Maybe not. Apparently 32 percent of women wait 3 weeks, or the fifth date, before jumping into bed. Sex toy company LoveHoney surveyed 2,225 people and it was discovered that women are more conservative than men with only 15 percent saying they'd have sex on the first date compared to 26 percent of men. Interestingly, these numbers drop for date number two. 13 percent of women and 16 percent of men say they will go all the way on date two. The one thing both sexes could agree on was kissing with 72 percent of men and women saying they'd kiss on the first date. The most surprising thing the survey found was that men are more quick to romance than women. 25 percent of men surveyed said they first mentioned love in the first month of the relationship. Only 16 percent of women said the same. Women were happy to wait until the fourth month of the relationship to say "I love you." Three quarters of men say "I love you" first compared to 44 percent of women. Men were also interested in introducing their lady to their parents earlier in the relationship and they were first to change their Facebook relationship status. LoveHoney co-owner Richard Longhurst believes this shows that men like to "get a move on" not just when it comes to sex but to commitment as well. He says:
They are keener to tell their partner they love them but also to outwardly recognise this commitment by changing their Facebook status and introducing their loved one to their parents. Women are a little more wary - preferring to take their time before revealing similar levels of commitment. I think what is encouraging is that British men's stiff upper lip seems to have disappeared completely. They are prepared to be far more open about their feelings and tell their partner their true feelings. That has to be good thing.
What do you think? Is this old news to you or do you think men are becoming more open with their feelings?
