Women Aren't Banging More. They're Banging Differently, According to Natsal-3

When you're a fan of Masters of Sex or ASU alum and pornographer Dave Pounder, chances are you love it when science delves into the kinky wonderland that is your bedroom. And wouldn't you know it, researchers have just released some new (but not-so-shocking) data on intercourse, including the much disputed enigma that is the lady boner.

According to Britain's National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, which runs every decade and was just released this week, people are getting a lot more loose with how they let loose in bed.

Overall, the most recent Natsal-3 reports that the most significant changes in sexual behavior have occurred among women, stating that while they are certainly willing to do more than you might think, they're not necessarily going to do more of it. In fact, sexual activity has decreased over the past few decades.

So what acts are women up to on the (apparently) increasingly rare occasion that they are feeling frisky? Well, the Natsal findings show that not only are more women engaging with same-sex partners (or least finally admitting to it), they're also having more anal sex, jumping from 11 percent to 15 percent over the past 10 years; similar to the male increase of 12 percent to 15 percent.

And lastly, for those of you who thought everyone in high school was having sex but you, good news: it's actually only 29 percent (and that's considered an increase). To purchase the full report visit
