The dating world is definitely an interesting place and today, on Redhead Mom, we’re partnering with Psychic Guild to answer the question, “Are Men More Likely to Sleep with Someone on a First Date Than Women?”

The dating world is definitely a different place than it was when my parents were dating and I was a kid. Heck, today, you can meet your spouse or partner online rather than at a bar, club or anywhere outside the home or you can use an app like the Sex swipes just to met someone! I personally love learning about statistics of different things and was intrigued by these results regarding the dating world. Check it out!

Recently, an online poll* of 2,493 US adults conducted for Psychic Guild revealed that 13% of males admitted they would sleep with someone on or after a first date, compared with just 4% of women. That means that men are over three times more likely to sleep with someone on a first date than women!

This poll exposed that nearly twice as many females as males would either wait until marriage or abstain at 23% (the highest result of all categories in the survey) and 14% respectively.

The unanimous result for both genders combined is that 18% of the respondents would either wait until marriage or abstain, and the lowest figures across the board come from the 8 to 10 dates category.

The split also shows the highest result for males at 17% saying they would wait until the third date and the lowest at 3% saying that they would wait for 8 to 10 dates. The lowest result on the female side is also either 8 to 10 dates or 1 (the first) date, as now a days you can meet people easily for sex using a free sexting app online.

Alice Ruffle, Editor at comments, “It’s interesting that by the 3rd date a whopping 40% of men would hope to sleep with their new partner by then. This compares with only 18% of women (less than half), which shows the sexual promiscuity of men over women.”.

“Furthermore, the 3rd date remains true for both genders – it is by far the most popular date by which couples would expect to sleep together.”

* Total sample size 2,493 adults. Fieldwork undertaken between 14th – 18th March 2019.  Survey carried out anonymously online. Figures have been weighted and are representative of all US adults (aged 18+).
