In a post-Sex and the City world, all women know every intimate detail of their friends' sex lives, and in fact, discuss matters like penis size and "funky spunk" loudly over brunch in the presence of their babies and their waitresses. (Side note: Men now fear women's public laughter.) What's that? No, that's probably not entirely accurate? True. But in my personal experience, girlfriends do tend to discuss their sex lives at least a little!
According to adult product company AdamandEve.com, and its "Great American Sex Survey," women are more likely to gab. Of participants who were asked "Do you share intimate details of your sex life with friends?" 30% of the female respondents said that they did, while only 18% of men copped to it.

First of all….only 30% of women? Really, you guys? Like, no details at all?!? I mean, I'm not going to take a snapshot of his orgasm face to pass around at the next book club meeting, but you gotta talk about some things, right? I call BS on at least half of that 70% who didn't say yes. I mean, certainly around here we talk about everything from sex droughts to whether or not your current guy is really the best you've ever had, and you guys never hold back. Which we love!
And what's up with the discrepancy between men and women's conversations? According to AdamAndEve.com's sexpert Dr. Kat Van Kirt, "Emotional intimacy tends to rank high among women - making it more natural for them to share information on sexual escapades than for men," and plus, "Sharing information can be helpful… We all want to bounce questions off our friends to feel 'normal'."

I will assume men don't feel the need to find out what's normal because they are all just coming to Smitten to read our discussions and find out for themselves.
Do you discuss intimate details of your sex life with your friends? Do you think your guy does the same? Would it bug you if it did? (I feel weirdly hypocritical on this subject.)
