As a whole, men expressed more experience and enthusiasm related to first date sex than did our female respondents. In fact, more than 6 in 10 men recalled getting it on with a partner after a single outing together – and most of those who hadn’t were eager to change that. They better keep their expectations in check, however: A recent poll found the average person thinks eight dates is the appropriate precoital waiting period.
It looks like the majority of men prefer to, or are open to, getting some tail on date #1. For women, however, the number is significantly lower — so if you’re looking to score, your chances should be higher if you show some patience.
