People React As Man Reveals How Often The Average Person Has Sex

TikTok users have reacted hilariously when a man put a video on discussing the average number of times people have sex in a year.

He said: "The average person has sex 54 times a year or so, looks like the next few days are gonna be pretty crazy for me."

TikTok users found the stats hilarious.

One person said: "I'm the reason it's not 100 times a year lol."

Another wrote: "I'm bringing down the average so you guys feel better about yourselves."

A third responded: "Well someone here must be doing it 54 extra times to make up for me."

The statistics, from the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, likely come from a 2017 study that said that the average person has sex near enough once a week. It stated it was less frequent sex than when a similar study was done in the 90s.

Another study was published in Social Psychological and Personality Science which said this amount of intercourse was actually the perfect amount for happiness.

It was conducted over 40 years and looked into the personal lives of more than 30,000 Americans. It found that any more than once a week didn't really improve happiness. But those that had sex less than once a week did report being less fulfilled.

However, it's likely that those stats were affected by the pandemic.

When lockdown measures were first introduced, one of the only conceivable benefits was the potential for an improved sex life for couples quarantined together.

A lack of time is typically blamed for a barren love life, but with working (and doing basically everything) from home the new normal, time is something we all have a lot more of. Indeed, many predicted there may be a Covid-19 baby boom, with sex becoming an increasingly popular hobby for bored couples.

But when condom sales declined in March, the boss of Durex did not point the finger squarely at the lack of opportunities for singletons during lockdown - he said those who have even more opportunity than ever are having less sex too.

Speaking to the BBC, Laxman Narasimhan - boss of Reckitt Benckiser, which owns Durex - said: "What you see is this virus is having a toll on the number of intimate occasions in the UK.

"Intimate occasions are going down and that is a manifestation of anxiety."
