Facts about sex and sex drive

  • A funny, graphic overview of 51 surprising and cheeky facts about sex, sex drive, a lack of sex drive, women’s sex drive, men’s sex drive, and loads of vey funny bonus info. Read on for a good laugh!

As a sexologist, couple’s therapist, speaker and news paper column writers, I’m often asked what gives us a high sex drive, and what actually makes the sex drive go away.

Yes, facts about sex and sex drive are interesting to most of the people I come across, and someone always has lots of curious questions!

If it’s a question of “sex drive being a bit difficult”, the answer will always vary from person to person. In a situation like this you always have to look at the couple and the individual experiencing difficulties.

However, more often than not, the questions are merely curiosity driven and wondering:

“How often do we actually think about sex?”


“Are men turned on quicker than women?”

Or even questions such as:

“When I drink beer, I lose my sex drive. But! If I stick to wine or cocktails, we always end up having awesome sex. Why is that?”


“Is my interest in sex affected by stress?”

Over time, lots of studies on sex and sex drive have been conducted, and in the following info-graphic you’ll see the results of some of the funnier ones discussing sex and sex drive!

The quirkier facts are the basis of this info-graphic, but what I’m hoping this will do is help couples talk about the sex drive in their relationship.

    The infographic doesn’t come forward in my browser (Edge/internet Explorer). Just a long white area without any content… Could there be a technical issue? 🙂
