Men are over three times more likely to sleep with someone on a first date than women.

A survey of 2,500 US adults has revealed that 13% of men compared with just 4% of women would sleep with someone on or after a first date.

An online poll* of 2,493 US adults conducted for Psychic Guild reveals 13% of males admit that they would sleep with someone on or after a first date, compared with just 4% of women.

The poll exposed that nearly twice as many females as males would either wait until marriage or abstain at 23% (the highest result of all categories in the survey) and 14% respectively.

The unanimous result for both genders combined is that 18% of the respondents would either wait until marriage or abstain, and the lowest figures across the board come from the 8 to 10 dates category.

The split also shows the highest result for males at 17% saying they would wait until the third date and the lowest at 3% saying that they would wait for 8 to 10 dates. The lowest result on the female side is also either 8 to 10 dates or 1 (the first) date.

Alice Ruffle, Editor at comments, “It’s interesting that by the 3rd date a whopping 40% of men would hope to sleep with their new partner by then. This compares with only 18% of women (less than half), which shows the sexual promiscuity of men over women.”.

“Furthermore, the 3rd date remains true for both genders – it is by far the most popular date by which couples would expect to sleep together.”

* Total sample size 2,493 adults. Fieldwork undertaken between 14th – 18th March 2019.  Survey carried out anonymously online. Figures have been weighted and are representative of all US adults (aged 18+).
