Kayla Kayla
On your New Year's Weekend, why not learn some neat statistics about sex? Here are some neat statistics you may not have known:

Approximately 30 percent of women over the age of 80 are still sexually active.

Ejaculations have an average speed of 28 mph.

Men, on average, can maintain an erection for up to 40 minutes.

The Kinsey Institute reports that masturbation is twice as common for white-collar workers than blue-collar workers.

On average, sex burns around 360 calories an hour.

Each year, approximately 11,000 Americans injure themselves trying out unusual and difficult sexual positions.

These sex facts were obtained from LiveStrong.

I reckon the statistic is skewed by the inclusion of women over 80 who are widowed or otherwise single. I want the percentage of 80 year olds with committed partners who are sexually active!

You mean, the number with committed partners where the partner can still do it. Maybe what you want to know is the percentage of women over 80 who have access to a willing, able partner if they want it.

Never realized how many get injured during sex; if I did I don't think I would necessarily mention it a medical provider.

As for sex over 80, I am surprised, perhaps the stat also includes solo play.

Haha, those were some fun facts. I'll try not to be one of the ones who gets injured this year, but I sure will try out so unusual positions.
