Do you think about sports more than sex?



Two birds. One stone.

You know the urban myth than men think about sex every seven seconds? Well it’s not true. According to the Kinsey Institute, “54% of men think about sex every day or several times a day, 43% a few times per month or a few times per week, and 4% less than once a month.” Those figures seem ridiculous to us since we spend all day wondering which super hot female athlete will be posing in playboy or FHM next but those are the stats so who are we to argue. Anyway, if true, then sex has nothing on soccer.

According to a poll by a financial services company, English Premiereship fans think about soccer every 12 during a normal waking day. (God knows how often they dream about it at night.) Sheffield United fans are the most rabid as they think about The Blades every 9 minutes. Every 9 minutes? How do you get any work done during the day?

We love sports around here (we are sports bloggers after all) but thinking about anything every 9 minutes seems to be obsessive… although lately we have been wondering too often how the hell a pole vaulter could be so hot.
