How Often Do Americans Think About Sex?

When you follow my social feed over the weekend, you will see a lot of pictures of me enjoying all the events and fun that Central Iowa has to offer. Sometimes, when I check my social media feed, I find people sending me articles or commenting on the terribleness of "duh liberalz." I think - man, it's the weekend - go out AND HAVE SOME FUN.

I think I've now located the problem with America. We're spending too much time hating on our political opponents and not enough time thinking about sex.

Most people think about sex eight times a day, leading to them talking about it five times a day. Man, that seems low. But then I think - maybe social media is creating a world in which we think too much about politics and NOT enough about sex.
