Cuddling On the Couch Only Has a 17% Chance of Leading To Romance
Guys, I'm about to save you a TON of time. If you want to have sex, don't play it slow by cuddling on the couch under a blanket, watching a movie, then trying to move things to the bedroom. Just skip all that and try jumping right in. According to a new study out of the University of Michigan, a couple only has sex after cuddling on the couch ONE out of SIX times. That means there's only a 17% chance that curling up together on the couch is going to lead to getting-it-on.
The study also found the average couple cuddles at least eight times a week, for an average of 47 minutes and 36 seconds each time. BUT, even though cuddling only leads to sex one out of six times, the couples who cuddled more often reported better overall sex lives. The researchers think it's because they have higher levels of intimacy.
