P94 Of Glamour Mag: 76% Of Men'd Never Pay For Sex

48 posts in this topic

.... The other 24% said they had paid for sex because:

"my mates pushed me into it": 5%

"I knew I wouldn't get found out": 13%

"I needed to switch off from work/daily life": 6%

The 24% sounds nothing like you guys. What do you think?

this relies on people replaying to questionaires honetly. I think if i was doing one i'd say i never pay for it. its nothing to do with anyone else.

so treat any surveys like this with caution.

it proves what people say they will or won't do. what they actually do nobody knows!

50 % of men lie about it . So 26% never pay for it . 20 % are still virgins, leaving 6% who just don't have the money .

"I needed to switch off from work/daily life": 6%

This has definitely been a main motivating factor for me.

How ludicrous! What about the percentage who do it because they can't get sex any other way, through shyness, disability or whatever? The fact that there's no one saying that tells you how accurate the survey is. I certainly can't say I was pushed into it by my mates, I wouldn't say I do it because of pressures at work, and "because I knew I wouldn't get found out" is hardly a reason to do something - it's merely a reason not to avoid doing it! So I don't come under any of those three.

It would be interesting to know if this was an anonymous survey completed online, or if it was done face-to-face. I mean, if a woman asked me if I had paid for sex, there's no way I would admit to it. Conversely, if I was filling in an online survey, I'd freely spill the beans.

we had a heated discussion some time ago about surveys like these. People were saying that the surveyors made adjustments for error, without saying how this was done. sounds like gurssing to me. or frigging the results so the survey says what you want it to say.

If the polsters cant get general election results right (remember the 1992 election) then what chance have they with something like this?

ignore.

So what do you think the real percentage is? Maybe 50? Don't forget many people are religious and won't do this because of their beliefs (even with secularisation today)

what do you mean by 50%

50% of people have done paid for sex as a provider or punter sometime in their lives?

or 50% or pwople are active in paid sex just now?

I reckon the first is about right. but i have no evidence to prove it!

Seems very odd answers, the whole 24% just listing those 3. Did they just tick one of a list of questions asked in a poll.

I fancy a shag and haven't got a wife/girlfriend is my main reason.

This is not a maths test is it ? I mean starting with the 76 people who never pay for sex ,

50 of those are telling porkies [ so they have paid ]

20 of that 76 are virgins... 6 guys of those 76 are always skint , so they can't pay anyway . :P

ASS - the Association of Survey Statisticians, once came up with a figure for how many people don't like and won't do surveys.

This 24% sounds nothing like me

I pay for it because I thoroughly enjoy it!

You can pay to go hang-gliding

You can pay to go white water rafting

Why shouldnt you pay a woman for sex (as long as she;s acting of her own free will)?

76% of men would never pay for sex?? - what a load of bollocks.

IMO if they had the disposable income and knew they would not be found out the vast majority of men would be more than happy to pay for sex. You just cannot take any notice of surveys like this. Paying for sex is a very private matter and if asked the question I would also say no.

There is no way such a survey can be proved to be accurate as who knows who was lying and who wasnt. That in my opinion do make it bollocks.

Just like the recent one on students becoming WGs, it cant be proved as many wouldnt admit to it and many people dont tell anyone as posts on this forum and threads have showed. The results will be virtually worthless in my view as they wont be accurate.

It seems to me that asking this question is like asking anyone - and I include women of course - do you masturbate? This is an embarrassing question to be asked and a lot of people lie because they are uncomfortable answering it. I do of course and so does everybody else. It is those very rare few who do not that are abnormal in my opinion because a normal sex drive needs some kind of outlet, even within a relationship men and women sometimes masturbate on their own as well as with thier partners. So, do you sometimes pay for sex? I think the real percentage is about 80/90%, whereas the figure for masturbation is almost certainly 99.999%, I leave out a one in one thousand of a percent because in life nothing is ever 100% for those abnormal people who have no sex drive and don't have sex or masturbate.

My conclusion is that men's sexuality is such that they will have sex with other women even when that man has a family and partner that he loves. In fact I have recently found out that my former manager at work has left his wife and two children for a nineteen year old waitress, he is about 35/36. The nature of relationships is such that over time your wife/girlfriend will become older maybe slightly fatter, anyway less attractive physically then before and the temptation to have sex with a much younger attractive women is difficult to resist. The same is true for women. They will also sometimes go for another man for various reasons as they may have decided that one man is husband material as he is a stable provider for children whereas the rake is in fact more fun and for sex but not for family. Studies using DNA testing has proved that birds behave the same way. A hen may partner up with a cock who is a good provider of food but the DNA shows that a significant percentage ( I can't remember exactly) are not his own children. So the hen is copulating with other males that she thinks provide her with healthier chicks while she stays with her less attractive male who provides the food.

Humans behave in the same way. My father told me a story of when my brother was born in 1967 that a white woman in hospital gave birth to a baby who was obviously much darker then the couple, and therefore of a black father, that the husband was so devastated and angry at his wife that the man had to be escorted from the hospital by the police as he was threatening to kill her.

There are many children in the world today who are mistaken in who their real father is.

well said don

I think it well documented that womens behaviour changes at different times of their cycle. During the fretile part they have a natural urge to get impregnated, and if their partner isnt available then they will look elsewhere.

not being a woman i don't know if that is true but as Don says, many kids are in families where who they call dad isnt their biolgical father. I have heard figures as high as 30%.

So the amount of illicit shagging taking place is quite a lot, and it stands to reason thet paid sex is a significant part of that.

how does anyone know unless you do a lot of dna tests?

There have been studies looking at the Y-Chromosome in males with unusual surnames is societies where the child inherits the surname of the presumed father.

Yes, Scientists & Anthropologists will do large-sample DNA studies for research purposes.

Everything depends on the size of the sample population.

The smaller the sample the more the results will be skewed one way or another.

If the questionnaire was completed by users of this forum then (assiming the respondents were honest in their answers) almost 100% would admit to having paid or sex.

I seldom take any notice of these surveys because they are sensationalist and often based on imperfect statistical sampling techniques

Is it sweeping generalisation time again already? :rolleyes: Women and their crazy cycles!
