Women Would Officially Rather Have Food Than Sex

For guys, sex is simple. You see a pair of boobs, get hard, and bam, five minutes later you’ve drifted off into a stress-free, easy nap. For girls, not so much. When combining size variances, skill of your partner, and amount of time spent in bed, it can honestly be a tossup as to whether spending 30 minutes getting the perfect contour that night was even worth it. Even if your night in bed with the suitor of choice was a mediocre (at best) experience, you can take comfort in the fact that there are some things in life that will never let you down.

Take food, for example. Each time I open a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Core, I know exactly what I’m going to get. Same with Krispy Kreme drive-thru. I always know the exact quality and quantity of item I’m out to get, and I’m never, ever disappointed in my choice.

When this level of comfort can come from a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and milkshake, it can make you wonder why some women even prefer sex at all. If you fall in this camp, you’re not alone — science has officially declared that most women now prefer food over sex. Sorry, men. In a recent survey, results showed that 51 percent of women would rather eat than get laid, and with all of the strings that come along with a sexual encounter, I can’t really say I blame them. This result was so surprising to researchers that they actually went back to their study group to clarify the question, and asked women again whether they would prefer to engage in intercourse or go out to eat. This time, 42 percent of women said they’d prefer to go out to eat, and 31 percent said they felt the same about both options, leaving only 27 percent of women saying that they’d rather jump into bed than go out to eat.

So ladies, don’t worry — even if you’re not getting laid, apparently the rest of us don’t want to be. So let’s all get together for dessert, because it seems like that’s the only thing we can agree makes life worth living.
