Jews Do It More

Says decade-old study still worth bragging about

This is science, people! Well, okay, science from 1998 rehashed for a Daily Beast listicle, but still! Jews and agnostics (and look, who do you think invented doubt?) have 20 percent more sex than the average. (Baptists are also above average, albeit less so; Lutherans and Presbyterians, the poor schmucks, apparently have less sex.) Also, according to another study (this one published last year), observant married Jewish women are more than twice as likely as average married women to have sex three to six times per week, which, depending on whether you’re Annie or Alvy, is “constantly” or “hardly ever.”

Daniel Millstone says:

I’m sure you must mean that Jews reported more sex. The study didn’t involve direct observation; now did it?

Take a look at me, I built a business around it. I should be proof.

Israel Ayala says:

Oh yeah, we do it very often. It’s required by G-d. My 12 children should be a proof to that.
