10 Charts About Sex

April 19th, 2011 by Christian Rudder

This was one of the first infographics ever made:

Later remembered as "the map that made a nation cry", it depicts Napoleon's failed invasion of Russia in 1812. The wide tan swath shows his Grande Armée, almost half a million strong, marching East to Moscow; the black trickle shows the few who straggled back. It's an elegant fusion of geography, time, and temperature into a single statement of military disaster.

Of course, using modern tools of analysis, like circles and the color blue, we can get an even clearer picture of history:

It is our goal today to create graphics of similar concision and power, but about something more useful than war—sex.

All the data below, even the most personal stuff, has been gleaned from real user activity on OkCupid. Some of it our users have told us outright by answering match questions; some of it we've had to learn from observation.

Other than the unifying theme, sex, there's no big point or thesis to this post: just comparisons, correlations, and quirky trends.

Chart #1

We found this by crossing the match questions Do you like to exercise? and Is it difficult for you to have an orgasm?, and, as you can see, women who don't like working out report twice the orgasm problems of women who do.

Chart #2

Here, we took a single question—Is your ideal sex rough or gentle?—and scraped people's profile text for the words that most correlated to each answer. Here are word clouds for women and men in their 20s.

The text is basically Hot Topic versus, I dunno, Burberry. But beyond the words the interesting thing is how men's and women's preferences change with age:

This dataset only includes single people, of course, but I was still very surprised at how many old men like it rough. Looks like I'm going to have to rethink a cherished part of my worldview.

Chart #3

The odds shown in this chart, and the others like it later in the post, are odds "in favor"—in this case, odds in favor of being into giving oral sex. The higher a group's odds, the more into it they are.

Since so much sexual slang involves meat—"hot dog," "sausage," "burger," "beef injection," "another beef injection," and so on—I thought this would be a fine occasion to point out that there are plenty of veggie alternatives:

Vegetarian-Friendly Sex Slang
Peeling the banana.
Tossing the salad.
Squeezing the melons.
Zeroing in on a grown man's nuts and nutsack.
Putting Monsanto in yoursanto.
Ordering the split pea soup.
Sorry, that's got ham.

Cornholing others.

Charts #4 & #5

Frequent tweeters have shorter real-life relationships than everyone else, probably via some bit.ly hack. Unfortunately, we have no way to tell who's dumping who here; whether the twitterati are more annoying or just more flighty than everyone else. There is also this:

If someone tweets every day, it's 2-to-1 that they're #ingthemselves just as often. Like the "shorter relationships" thing, this is true across all age and gender groups.

Chart #6:

In the Bible, in between the part where Reuben kills a he-goat so he can dip some clothes in the blood of the he-goat and where Judah tries to give Tamar a goat but decides maybe she should be burned to death instead, God kills a man named Onan because Onan intentionally spills his seed on the ground.

(1) Thou shalt not whack off. (2) Mo goats mo problems.

Life lessons! From the Iron Age!

Charts #7 & #8

This bubble chart, plotting body type, sex drive, and self-confidence, is dynamic—you can use the slider at the bottom change it. As you can see as you move the control from left to right, a woman's sexuality peaks in her twenties, holds more or less steady for twenty years, and then falls to the floor. And while sex drive waxes and wanes, self-confidence steadily grows.

Remember, the women themselves select their body-descriptions; the bubbles show the size of each group. Though many of the words are just a shade of meaning apart, there are dramatic differences in the traits of the people who choose them. Go through the animation and compare full-figured to curvy or skinny to thin.

It's particularly interesting to isolate skinny—a deprecating way to say something generally considered positive (being thin)—and curvy—an empowering way to say something generally considered negative (being heavy). Here are those bubbles' complete paths across the graph:

Curvy women pass skinny ones in self-confidence at age 29 and never look back. They also consistently have the highest sex drive among the groups. Curvy, as a word, has the strongest sensual overtones of all our self-descriptions. So we're getting a little insight into the real-world implications of a label.

This is the "complete path" plot for men:

Things to notice: (1) almost no men choose curvy or full-figured as self-descriptions, so those words aren't plotted here; (2) men of all body types have roughly the same peak sex drive; (3) and the thing that matters most for guys is simply to not be overweight. The other four body types are clustered relatively together at most ages.

Chart #9

For this chart, we took our own data and mixed it with a little outside stuff: college tuitions from U.S. News & World Report.

Generally speaking, the more your parents are paying for your education, the more horny you are. If only Freud were still around to help us understand; instead we have psychology majors, those Adidas shower sandals, and darkness.

You can think of the dotted best-fit line as dividing the good sex-ed values (above the line) from the bad ones (below). The line also gives us a handy sliding scale: given a 36-week school year and the average partner, every $2,000 spent on your college tuition is an extra time you could be having sex that year.

Chart #10

The correlation between sex and money is robust for colleges, but it gets even stronger when extended to entire nations.

We were amazed at this result—money seems to be a more powerful influence on sex drive than culture or even religion.

You have, for example, Portugal, Oman, Slovenia, and Taiwan within a few pixels of each other on the right side of the graph, and Syria, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala almost stacked on the left, and all of them sit along the trend line.

Speaking of Guatemala, you should Facebook-like this article. The end.

    the reason for the high percentage of vegetarian oral sex is that vegetarians TASTE better . . . “down there”. at least that’s been my experience with veggie girls . . . far less pungent, you don’t walk around the next day subconsciously smelling your upper lip . . .

  2. Michael Koan says:

    People with higher sexual status like rough sex, i.e., younger women and older men. The alpha male demonstrates his dominance and the attractive female wants to know she’s with the alpha. Those that like gentle sex feel insecure and enjoy the safety and comfort of gentle sex.

  3. Rae says:

    RE: Chart 10

    What about differences in access to birth control in lower and higher GDP nations? Or the practical implications of living a “harder” lifestyle? (Longer hours, harder labor, greater levels of exhaustion, etc.)

    These stats are certainly amusing, and I really enjoyed reading through them and thinking about them (especially in the context of my own experiences), but they’re observational data based off online dating profiles. Largest inherent skew – who are we really looking at?

    And AMEN to the dorky/nerdy kinky sex. Hells yes. ;)

  4. etc says:

    re: college tuition vs sex per week.

    i was a popular guy at school and i can easily say, if you’re at a cheaper college you’re less likely to be having a ton of sex because you are more likely to be paying for tuition yourself. i know if my parents had paid for my college tuition and i didn’t have to work all the time and work/study every summer, i would have had WAY MORE SEX and time to have it. opportunities are the same regardless, it’s just about leisure time. rich people have more time to waste.

    also, i think re: old men and rough sex

    keep in mind that these are old men going to a free online site and those that are desperate/aggressive enough to learn the internet because of the image of quick and easy sex . this is say vs going to a book club and meeting the same people who liked the same wally lamb book for instance. these book clubbish old men are more likely to say screw the internet, i want a genuine connection vs the horny ones who are like, i’ll learn the internet if it could even yield a 1% chance of sex.

    etc.

  5. Segugio says:

    Segugio’s ancestor was an Officer in the Grande Armee.

    Segugio enjoys oral sex.

    Seems a more accurate correlation than vegetarianism.

  6. Jacib says:

    I know I’m a nerd but so are you guys, probably… The college tuition one looks pretty heteroskedastic and so the R-squared from the (presumably) OLS regression might be a little off, and it’s strange how you used two different proxies for “horniness” for colleges and countries… I’d love to know if the results were robust over both measures. Could you start maybe having a little extra thing for the statistically inclined? You know, just reassure us that when you’re comparing means, the differences are statistically significant, and that you recognize that your sample is not for the U.S. population but a segment of it, and that you have relatively few people in the 40-50 to category. Like, are most of the differences in the twitter finding statistically significant? I am sure for overall it is, but I am curious about what age group it’s statistically significant for. Also, I’d love to see some more multivariate regression here… I think you guys are good at explaining things and can put up an equation in such away that everyone will be able to understand what it means. Trust your audience a little more, and also your own abilities to explain the statistics.

  7. Farebro says:

    Interesting that those women who reportedly enjoy exercise also report fewer problems in orgasm. The question is, does this mean that excercise = better sexual health, or is it simply an artefact of certain mating strategies? One might foresee women who want a primarily physical relationship, or perhaps to start a family imminently, to want to project themselves as physically attractive, healthy and sexual.

  8. Mike says:

    Chart #7 would be better as two slider-less, bubble-less plots:
    {sex drive, self-confidence} vs. age by body type (one line for each type). The group sizes are not that interesting so these should just be reported next to the labels rather than as dramatic differences on the plot.

  9. mangoyumyum says:

    Curvy means shapely to me: tits, hips, ass. It also conjures empowerment for me too. I chose curvy to describe myself because I have a very overtly womanly figure- not stick thin, or athletic, but a body where you notice my ass, tits and hips right away. It’s not a euphemism for heavy / overweight for me, although a heavy woman could be curvy. But, a heavy woman also could have more of an athletic build. I feel that it’s silly to assume that a “curvy” woman is heavy- she could just be curvy! And, just to point it out there- I know tons of ladies who have heavier body types that are super-confident in their sexiness. I would also like to see how body types and sex drive match up for queer people vs. heterosexuals. I feel that, at least in my own experience, the queer community embraces different body types as more sexy than heterosexual society…

  10. Chrissy Strawn says:

    I find it interesting to read the charts and see how things are distributed. I for one think the charts are mostly right.

  11. Daniel says:

    Looks like women hate to give what they demand the most. It direct that men love to satisfy women but not the other way around.

    Pornography is a bout women that don’t think ONLY in there own sexual satisfaction, that is what offend feminists.

  12. Danielle says:

    I know you’re trying to be funny, but there may be an interesting correlation that you overlooked for #3 (vegetarians vs. omnivores enjoying oral sex).

    People who don’t smoke or eat meat have different tasting cum, usually less strong or bitter. Vegetarians, who may be more likely to date other vegetarians, might enjoy the relatively milder taste more than the stronger stuff.

    I’m not vegetarian myself, but have read sex studies about this. Just Google it!

  13. Anonymous says:

    WTF, I’m at Princeton and it’s hard to find anyone for relationship or sex, I’ve been alone for years of MS/PhD.

  14. Wayne (WayOkay on OKC) says:

    Re charts 7 & 8: too few of us chose “fit” or “athletic” ?

    Or are we just off the chart?

  15. Jimmyc177 says:

    Loved the article, so funny and interesting!

  16. IWorkInPixels says:

    As a Christian cyclist who enjoys rough sex on occasion… ymmv. ;)

  17. senile_penile says:

    The reason for old men liking rough sex is simple. It requires more friction for a longer period of time for them to get off.

  18. scfp says:

    This was quite interesting; however, once I really got “into it”, some of the ‘findings’ weren’t so surprising – I mean, they made SENSE to me.

    BRAVO for the effort involved. I hope we see MORE research & compilations as such – and SOON too.

  19. Vanessa says:

    These comments are golden!!! Priceless!

    LOL to Fred who thinks women lose sensation in their genital area because “women don’t know how to moisturize” when in fact there are mucous membranes down there whose only purpose is to create this magical moisture! External liquids and close friction (from spit, improper lube, rough fingers, any other random body part/object you can think of) are EXACTLY what diminish the natural moisture.

  20. michael says:

    Regarding chart #10 – portion of “people”

    How much of this money-casual sex is gender-driven? I imagine women who live in wealthier countries with easy access to birth control, morning-after pills, abortion, etc. would be more likely to want to get it on casually.

    Also, there are like 30 people in all of Switzerland. Are all of them on OKC? I don’t know about that sample size.

  21. ARCHURE says:

    I don’t like Rough Sex and was glad to see that women dont either, genneraly

  22. ARCHURE says:

    Repost Spell Checked this time (pardon me I am male): I love graphics statistics, and sex too, and education (especially sex), like a kid in a candy shop, or me in a hardware store, I enjoy this page so much. I took a class in Human Sexuality in college: Women say OK to go ahead after 4 min of foreplay, but 10 min is minimum, and 20 min is Optimum. Foreplay is essential, but it’s after play which gets women pregnant (in case you’re trying, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything), 16% of men and 35% of women have Low Libido (not tonight honey, maybe they have kids, but generally not tonight honey (not my type)), I think it’s around 2% or something? of people have CSB compulsive sex behavior (shops for porn, gets a massage, does the internet personals, has a girlfriend, has a wife….), CSB is typically a product of their parents never kissed in front of them, and they went to Parochial school, but the experts say that Porn is good for arousal, good for couples, Where I part from the official teachings in college is, I think Vaseline is better than KY but since Vaseline is oil based it requires an oil based condom, oh and Zinc helps men’s Testosterone (a plate of Oysters = 40 mg zinc, but I’m a vegetarian vegan, I get one or two 50mg veg caps per day, in addition to DHEA tablet form which helps everyone’s hormones, I take 25,000 mcg of B12 per day for mental physical coordination, and B6 cures depression. I’m straight, but 8% of men were born Gay, and another 8% of men choose to be Gay, and another 8% once chose to be Gay; some experts in Psychology claim that all men are at least a little bit Gay, to which I reply, not tonight honey, I have a low libido for men, and a very high Libido for Women, but thanks anyway. The best and least hung up countries include Sweden, France and they really get it on in Russia (candy is dandy but vodka liquor is quicker), sorry but the USA is sort of sexually hung up, I’m trying to fix that, Ireland is apparently very hung up, everyone hangs their wash and sheets to dry outside for everyone to see, and they better not be stained (sad to learn), but the worst is Northern Africa/Middle East where they practice (non-reversible) FGE (removal of clitoris, to ensure that a woman will not be stimulated by anyone other than her future husband, who cant stimulate her either as its gone) beware of people from these areas, you don’t want your little girl over at their house (even in the USA) because they have done that plenty to friends of their daughters, sorry for the scare, as per the head of the Psych dept. Missionary face to face, the man is trying to push down, and she wants him to push up to the G spot, but Doggie Style, the most sensitive area of a man is in direct contact with the G Spot, it’s the natural way to do it, while the Missionary position is actually a perversion (a pleasant perversion, but can cause relationship difficulties, BIG TIME). After years of marriage, a couple who does not have anal sex, is having regular sex, the man slips out and re-inserts, not realizing he is in the vagina, the women is positive that he knows, and never says anything about it, and they guy never knows = Big Psychological Complex, please, if this ever happens to you women, SAY SOMETHING, immediately, unless you’re enjoying it, then tell him later, ask him if he knew. 50% of women have tried anal sex, and 50% of those liked it (its not my main purpose in life or anything, I think I can live without it, but USE A CONDOM), which leads to always use a CONDOM, and for relationships Wikipedia has a big long list of Contraceptives or Birth Control Methods listed by Effectiveness (withdrawal is not the most effective), Vasectomies and Spermacide both cause men pain (very painful), Marital Aids are good for Foreplay, especially the adameve Rabbit (unpaid plug), Married people have more sex (depending on an individuals libido) for every 1 woman with a Libido, there are 2 men with a Libido, Ive been lonely too long and it’s my turn. Most modern marriages, last around (I think it’s) 3 years with an additional 1.5 years for every child. Religion tends to be oppressive of human sexuality (oppression of the Psychological ID is not good, look at the Middle East, social problems result). United Nations Declaration of Human Rights 1948 (International Law, for everyone on Earth, regardless of UN membership or not) Article 18: “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance”, I don’t affiliate myself with any formal religious establishment. The Church between 1400-1600 Tortured people into confessing to being Witches flying on Brooms (the most common accusation), then Tortured them into pointing out other Witches, etc, then Burned them Alive (a few who were really cooperative were drowned first then burned) as per “Cows Wars Pigs and Witches” by Marvin Harris, required reading for all anthropology majors. The Church does not like me because I am a vegetarian, I think God would prefer to have me a vegetarian than a member of The Church, because I believe in Karma, goes around, NOT I do something bad and am forgiven. Jesus and Buddha and Krishna and Mohamed must have been cool people, but the people who took over The Church, I’m sorry for them

  23. Dirk Nachbar says:

    I would be interested to see the data for chart 10, as there might be bias. You derive the mean first and throw away the disperion within a country. Also I would like to test the other relationships, have you tried a model with all candidate variables in?

    Feel free to send by email.

  25. W. says:

    Man I’d really like to see some error bars in your graphs.

  26. Jann Poppinga says:

    In your pie chart about Napoleon Russian crusade, your misrepresenting the data. The soldiers were only less than half French. And parts of these ‘Frenchmen’ were from briefly held territories in Spain, Belgium, Germany. Though you’re not factually wrong, you’re doing injustice to the Belgians, Dutchmen, Germans, Italians, Poles, Spaniards, Turks, etc who had to fight for Napoleon.

  27. Harry says:

    I’d love to see a Male or Female & Age versus How many times per week would like to have sex.

  28. Robbie says:

    I’m going to study German, French, and Italian at Sarah Lawrence and then I’m moving to Switzerland to be a vegetarian.

  29. let's see it! says:


    Jessica says:

    I think it’s interesting that the word “curvy” is equated with being heavy. I selected curvy as my body type, and I’m not overweight at all; I just have big tits

    You got time to write on internet when you got that much?

  30. JP says:

    Jessica, call me.

  31. HockeyBias.com says:

    SEX: Do it for the children.

  32. k says:

    Show me show me show me…the chart of college tuition versus how often one gets laid…so I can choose where to go for my masters.

  33. Agnostic Man says:

    Chart #6 makes me think that the sample of Agnostic Men is very small.
    Too many people don’t even know what ‘agnostic’ means. Men in particular.

  34. S30V says:

    I don’t know about being a vegetarian but I’m a guy who really enjoys giving oral sex.It’s fun and the ladies seem to enjoy it.

  35. Midnightattheoasis says:

    hahaha great article and hilarious comment from american-cockfro!

  36. Michael says:

    This is highly entertaining, and I think I learned a few things about data visualization!

    Do you ever set a priori hypotheses for these analyses, or do you just look at things until you find something that makes an amusing graph? I know traditional corrections for multiple comparison probably don’t make any sense in the age of data mining, but do you do anything to make sure these correlations are anything more than you’d expect by chance?

  37. Aubert says:

    I’ve been an OKC user for a few years – a very happy user i might add :) – and I just want to say thank you to Christian Rudder for publishing this. I thought it was extremely well done and I really enjoyed it.

    Nice to know all those questions we answer serve a purpose lol.

  38. Yellowbeard says:

    Very interesting, all OKC’s posts are so clever. Thumbs up.

    My interpretation of the money vs. sex drive thing is that it’s related to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Poor people use sex to survive and need to work harder/longer to earn a living, and thus have less free time/energy/resources to pursue sex for pleasure. Whereas the richer ones among us, at least in theory, have more to work with and can turn sex from procreation into recreation.

    There’s also the idea that where Feminism is particularly strong, women are likely to be earning more money, having fewer children, and interested in more NSA sex.

  39. leo says:

    “curvy”? real women have curves,…only dogs go for bones!!!I’ll take a few curves any day!!!

  40. Colin says:

    The chart of rough sex versus men’s age doesn’t necessarily say a man’s interest in rough sex increases as he gets older- To me it reflects changing attitudes to sex and equality with different generations. i.e. a 30yo male in the eighties was more likely to prefer rough sex than a 30yo male today. At least that is my experience.

  41. Mary says:

    Wait… You didn’t even touch the gay community. Not cool.

  42. josh says:

    jessica give me a call 2078095580. profile under pacamura.

  43. Onan says:

    As men get older, impotence becomes more of a problem. Sex is violent by its very nature. The violent aspect gets played up more and more as men get older in order to combat impotence. Feeling dominant gives a man a hard on. This explains graph 2.

  44. JW says:

    “Jessica (april 19th at 10:45am), what are you doing later tonight?”

    HHHHhhhillarious

  45. elaine says:

    hey yeah about the curvy thing being “heavy”– curvy means you have more curves– hips, thighs, and/or/ chest.

    I’m not heavy I picked curvy because I am more curvy than average but not exactly categorized as thin. Heavy if anything is “full-figured.”

    Get it right, OKC guys! Thanksssss

  46. ss3220 says:

    plot portion of people looking for casual sex vs. age, please, for men and women. so curious!

  47. Soft Shock says:

    OKCupid I love you! Keep up the amazing work, and thanks for not only sharing but being fresh and fun.

  48. Jay says:

    Dude, Sarah Lawrence College students want have sex 6+ times a week, and the male to female ratio is 27% male and 73% female. Also, many of the dudes are gay.

    So, anyways, yeah, I really should have gone to Sarah Lawrence College.

  49. femeia says:

    I’m glad I’m curvy :P

  50. Barry Allen says:

    1) When did I tell OKC my college?

    2) I’m not using a particularly old computer or a particularly outdated version of IE, but the sliders never work for me. Less complicated tech, please.

    3) Can we please stop pretending the anti-circumcision movement is anything other than faint antisemitism? Old men like rough sex because they’re bigger misogynists. If you grew up after feminism took hold, you don’t want to treat women like objects the same way, and you don’t have the same anger at your disenfranchisement in modernity.

    4) Poor countries are more religious. That’s why they have fewer people looking for casual sex. Look at Thailand and Algeria: very, very similar per capita GDPs, but Thais want much more casual sex… because Thailand is a less-religious country, and when people are religious, it’s as Buddhists, who are less hung up on sex than Muslims. Looks at the countries at the top of the list– some of the least-religious countries in the world. How would this look if you controlled for religiosity?
