What's ur opinion about surveys?

September 11, 2022

Most of the surveys show men having more partners and sex than women. Do you believe in these results? Most of the times men increase their numbers while women decrease when it comes to sex and partners.

The problem with surveys and other forms of research is that people often think they show something they don't.

In the case you mentioned, those surveys show that men SAY they have more partners and women SAY they have fewer partners.

That does not mean men actually have more partners than women. All the survey definitely shows us is how people answer such surveys. There is no certainty as to the veracity of the data.

If you put a group of people in a room with a bad smell and uncomfortable chairs, and another group in a room with a pleasant smell and soft furnishings, you would likely get quite different answers. The question would be the same, but the data would be different.

Researchers aren't dumb they account for stuff like that plus these surveys are generally anonymous so there is less incentive to lie.

Another thing such surveys are replicated in different countries around the world and the vast majority I see men have more sex than women

Surveys we agree with we accept, if they don't agree with us we reject.

Women are more likely than men to lie about their sex lives, reveals a new study. Women’s coyness about their sexual behaviour was unveiled by a US study involving a fake lie detector test.

In surveys since the 1960s, men typically report having more sexual partners and than do women – a statistically impossible feat. For example, British men boast an average of 13 partners over a lifetime compared with an average of nine partners for women.

Scientists previously explained this anomaly by suggesting men were exaggerating their tally, while women were understating their total. But now Terri Fisher at Ohio State University and Michele Alexander at the University of Maine suggest that men are in fact more truthful in such surveys.

Women change their answers depending on whether or not they believe they will be caught out not telling the truth, the researchers found. The number of sexual partners a woman reported nearly doubled when women thought they were hooked up to a lie detector machine.

“Women are more sensitive to social expectations for their sexual behaviour and may be less than honest when asked about their behaviour in some survey conditions,” says Fisher, a psychologist. She says women appeared to feel under pressure to meet expectations of being more relationship-orientated and not promiscuous.

Completely anonymous

Fisher and Alexander surveyed over 200 unmarried, heterosexual college students aged 18 to 25.

One group filled in questionnaires having been told the researcher might view their responses. A second group filled in the survey completely anonymously, alone in a room.

A third group had electrodes placed on their hand, forearms and neck and were told they were being attached to a polygraph or lie detector machine – although there was in fact no working machine.

Women who thought their responses might be read said they had had an average of 2.6 sexual partners, compared with 3.4 partners for those who thought their answers were anonymous. But those who thought they would be caught out by the polygraph reported an average of 4.4 partners.

In contrast, men’s answers did not vary significantly. Those attached to the lie-detector reported an average of 4.0 partners compared with 3.7 for men who thought their answers would be read.

Can you provide some links?

And that's the depressing reality - women get laid a LOT more than men.

Well a well conducted survey is scientifical, so wether I agree with one or not doesn't change anything.

The way I see it is that those surveys show that most women are not attracted to most men, while most men are attracted to the majority of women.

Men are most likely do brag about their numbers and exaggerate them, while women tend to lower the number tremendously

How I know? Everyone lies, even on surveys or online tests. I found myself lying on them to nobody but myself and had to correct myself and try hard to stay objective so I can have the most accurate results

You tend to project onto these personal questions what you want yourself to be, rather than what you really are like, even if that shit is 100% anpnymous. Most people are not really aware of it I think

It's because we're always told have "have confidence in yourself" and "believe in yourself" which results in people deluding themselves and thinking they are better than they actually are.

It's even worse now we have social media. These messages are fed to people constantly. Especially on the female side, with these silly influencers telling women that they are "worthy" and "queens" and they should "know their worth". It's resulted in a generation of women who feel entitled to everything.

Yeah, but have this in mind. Over-inflated egos crack so damn easy

That is because they aren't used to any sort of rejection, criticism, especially women that are bombarded with compliments. One negative word, nasty look or someone rejecting her and the whole sense of self-worth collapses

That's true. Most women have never heard no as an answer. They live their life just assuming people will say yes to them whatever they do.

Men who have sex with men are going to be inflating the numbers of men who are getting laid. Grindr is the #1 gay/bi dating app. And Grindr is mostly a hookup app.

I'm not very well aware but do gay men make a significant difference?

[–]PMmeareasontolive 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sometimes results depend on the sample size and make up. Most surveys survey college kids. Did they ask all the theater kids? Or does the survey originate from a religious university? Stuff like that matters and isn't always accounted for.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
