So, I’ve noticed something, in contrast to my other findings about lavalife, (which was that the male to female ratio of online users is 2:1.) The polls on Lavalife seem to tell a completely different story. There actually seem to be more answers submitted by women than by men on two of the three survey sections. (In both “dating” and “relationships,” the number came out 55% women and 45% men. “Relationships” had more polls answered by both sexes, but with the same proportions.) The third sexion, (believe it or not, that was a typo, but I left it in because I thought it was funny for me to fall prey to my own innuendo,) “intimate encounters,” which are mainly questions about how hot you like your sex, (um, medium spicy, please!), saw more answers by men than women, (surprise, surprise), with 58% men and 42% women. This is still a far cry from the severely skewed 5:1 ratio of males to females at any given time on the site.
And now, the fun part, where I take the data I collected and pretend to know what it means.
While the men on the site are busy trying to hit on the women, the women are busy answering surveys. Furthermore, men are likelier than women to fill out a survey if it is about sex. That is all.
