The Two Most Searched Relationship Questions On Google
If you have a relationship question, Google it.
Turns out we turn to Google to get answers to our relationship woes.
The most searched questions are related to men. For example: “Is my husband gay” is significantly more likely to be typed into a Google search than is my husband “cheating,” “an alcoholic” or “depressed.”
Another surprising find was that men are just as likely to withhold sex as women. The number one relationship search complaint women had by a large margin was “My boyfriend won’t have sex with me.” Looks like women aren’t the only ones who aren’t always in the mood.
The biggest revelation with big data might be that Americans simply are not having as much sex as they claim to be. Also, 11 percent of women ages 15 to 44 say they get busy regularly, but don’t use protection. Scientists say that technically, 10 percent of them would get pregnant a month. Given that only one in 113 women of childbearing age gets pregnant in the US… the numbers just don’t add up.
While American culture seems sex-obsessed, it looks like they would rather rather fib than admit they’re on dry spell. A 2002 study by Robert Feldman of the University of Massachusetts, found that on average, people told two to three lies in a ten-minute conversation.
So what happens when people fill out surveys, anonymously and unwatched in the privacy of their own home? People get honest. Big data has made surprising revelations about hot button topics like human sexuality.
