Sex Survey: Men Get More Satisfaction

Wednesday, 19 April 2006 12:00 AM

Middle aged and older men tend to be more satisfied with their sex lives than women in the same age grouop, according to the results of a global sex survey done by researchers at the University of Chicago.

The survey of 27,500 people aged 40 to 80 in 29 countries found that there was a substantial difference between men and women throughout the world, according to study head Edward Laumann.

"There's a systematic disparity between men and women, where men are on the average substantially -- or about 10 points -- higher in their levels of satisfaction as women in that country," he said.

The survey looked at how people viewed their sex lives, their health, and their happiness. Most of those surveyed were married.

Here are some other results of the survey:

-- Most people who are married remain sexually active throughout the second half of their lives.

-- A greater proportion of people in Europe, North America, and Australia -- where men and women have more or less equal relations -- enjoyed sex physically and emotionally. A smaller percentage of people in male-dominated cultures were satisfied with their sexual lives.

-- About two-thirds of adults in Western nations reported their sex lives were very satisfying.

-- In the U.S. about three-quarters of men and two-thirds of women reported they were very satisfied with the physical and emotional aspects of their sex lives.

-- In Japan 18 percent of the men and 10 percent of the women answered positively about their sex lives.

The report appears in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
