Women would rather Read about Sex than Have it

Whether you like the books or not, their is a lot of excitement swirling around the now, fastest selling trilogy on the planet (surpassing Harry Potter and The Da Vinci Code), Fifty Shades of Grey. And, it has unlocked a not-so-naked truth: women would rather read about sex than have it.

In an online poll hosted by Dotty Bingo, 44 percent of women prefer reading about fictional erotic adventures over participating in their own sex lives. And, this poll wasn’t just handed to the over 40 crowd – women aged 25 to 50 were surveyed, citing that books like Fifty Shades made their own love lives appear a bit monotonous and boring.

Results like these make it almost laughable that the media has pitched these books as the cure to lackluster sex lives.

According to The Daily Mail, the women polled cited ease, a lack of energy and no imagination in the bedroom as reasons why their sexual encounters paled in comparison to the sex scenes described in erotica novels.

In fact, one reader told The Daily Mail, “I’d much rather read about it then do it. It’s always exciting in a book and, unlike in real life, the hero never rolls off when he’s finished and starts snoring without so much as a cuddle.”

Of course, author of the sexy trilogy, E.L. James, the 49-year old mother of two children, says she is not surprised by the results at all. She describes her books as “romantic fantasies” that offer women a “holiday from their husbands.”

Tell us what you think. Do you believe reading a novel, like Fifty Shades of Grey, is preferable to your own sex life?

    Maybe all the women who enjoy having sex more than reading about it were too busy having sex when this poll was taken?
