Men and sex: the other 46% are lying

Big news (not): "A study released Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists found 54 percent of men and 19 percent of women admit they think about sex every day -- or several times a day -- in a society where they are bombarded with subconscious erotic images."

But if you believe this chick -- "pop psychiatrist Louann Brizendine, author of the best-selling new book 'The Female Brain'" -- "Men think about sex every 52 seconds, while a woman does only once a day." And the one time a day the woman thinks about it is when the man is asleep.

I don't know how that 52-second figure correlates with the figures in the first paragraph, but apparently if you were to examine the log of the male brain, this is what you'd get:

07:14:21 "I have a meeting at 5:30, so I'll be a little late for dinner, dear."

07:15:13 Nice butt there!

07:15:42 Huh? Drop Junior at school this morning? Thought that was tomorrow.

07:16:05 Look at the hoohahs on that babe in the lingerie ad!

07:16:34 "Sure, I'll put that old rug at the curb for garbage collection."

07:16:57 Boy, did we have some good times on that rug. Whoa, babeeee!

Every 52 seconds. Just like clockwork, we are.

But at least in England, thinking may be all a lot of them do: "Britons not having as much sex as many think."
