The Rules For When You Should Have Sex Is Changing

A study of 2,000 US adults found the “three-date rule” could be a thing of the past. Results showed the average person polled would ideally wait until date eight to have sex. The study by Groupon found men feel sex is appropriate at any point from date five onward, but women would rather wait until date nine, on average. Men were more likely to be OK with sleeping together on the first date (9% vs. 1%), yet just 30% of men and 8% of women think sex should happen inside the first three dates. And it’s not just in the bedroom that things are happening more slowly: Those going on a first date soon shouldn’t get their hopes up for a first-date kiss, as results showed the average couple now doesn’t kiss until the second date. Even if it’s gone well, just one in six (17%) will “always” kiss on the first date.
