People love Facebook because they get laid faster

80% of women and 58% of men said using social media leads to sex faster, in a survey of 1,200 men and women.

It seems that the anticipation created through the use of social media and the sense that you've known each other for a longer time than in reality causes people to think it's ok to have sex earlier.

I think many men tend to ask or say more sexually explicit things on electronic exchanges. Face to face, they would never ask or say those things. The majority of sexual advances I received are through the Internet or SMS.

Women, in general, prefer to get to know a guy before sleeping with him (even for casual sex). Social media allows people to keep in touch and communicate throughout the entire day. This gives a sense that they've spent the whole day together when they were actually at work! I guess she would feel like less of a slut for sleeping with him on the first date if she had communicated with him on the Internet for a period of time before meeting!

An interesting post.

The article state - "Thirty-eight per cent of women say they have actually slept with a date sooner because of so-called 'digital intimacy'.

Digital intimacy, now that is a new language use for me!

I suppose whatever works.


The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one's self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.

The difference is this:
To a woman sex is an EMOTIONAL engagement.
To a man it is a PHYSICAL release.

To a large extent, the adage that gals give sex for love and guys give love for sex is true.

"To a woman sex is an EMOTIONAL engagement. "

That is not true.

There is basically no difference between men and women.

I have come across girls who always want "a ride" when they spot a hard-on even though she is not emotonally attached to the hard-on guy.

David, I think digital intimacy can supplement and strengthen but not replace physical intimacy. Pure digital intimacy seems to be for people who can't get it in real life.

Soft release, I don't think that generalisation is correct. There are guys who are extremely emotional when it comes to sex.
