Sex and Trojans in the City

When Trojan Brand Condoms comes up with a new condom brand, the Trojan Ecstasy, the company releases a sex survey and you get to compare your sexual frequency and satisfaction to that of your fellow Americans.

First, the Trojan Ecstasy.

Its claim to fame is a groundbreaking new design, a condom shape that's actually bigger at the tip and tappers at the bottom to allow for a more natural fit for him. The condom is also lubricated on both sides for an incredibly natural feel for both partners....

What I want to know is, did the Trojan manufacturer come up with a new design because their researchers read the Male condoms that break in use do so mostly by a "blunt puncture" mechanism Contraception article? [I asked their PR person but he didn't have the info.]

Second, the survey*. Are you having sex on average 101/year (Houston) or more like 60/year (San Francisco)?

Turns out that, on average, Americans have sex 79 84** times a year or roughly one and a half times a week. Nearly two-thirds of Americans (62 percent) wish they were having sex more often, while a small, yet surprising, number of people report having too much sex (4 percent). Men (73 percent) are more likely than women (53 percent) to want more frequent sex.

When it comes to sexual satisfaction, people in Atlanta (73%) and the city (71%) top the list, with the most active Houstonians falling to third place (70%).

Overall, Americans rate their sexual satisfaction as only just above average (6.5 out of 10).

Bottom line: 83 percent of Americans believe good sex is an important part of overall health and wellbeing, and 76 percent say they are looking for ways to make their sex lives more exciting. Seventy-five percent believe “sex without an orgasm is like the Fourth of July without fireworks,”....

*Fortunately for us Reuters just reprints the manufacturer's press release so you, too, can have a look at it. [Since you're not special enough to get it in your inbox like Reuters and us, that is.]

**Typo from the PR people.

N.B. Other than the Amazon link, I have no financial interest in/ties with Trojan Brand Condoms.
