Well, this is disappointing:

"According to a new survey by British retailer Bondara, one-quarter of men reported that having regular orgasms is more important to them than being in love."

 I can only hope that it's different for U.S. guys. It seems like if this were really true, more men would remain single, you know? What do ya'll think?

Think about it this way--75% of the men in the survey reported that love was more important--this is the majority.  I also think that what people report in surveys might not be totally accurate--it might be good to say something like this but if you asked a man if they could just have great sex or great sex plus love, don't you think most men would want both?

In today's world you cannot believe everything that a survey reports.  One it depend on the question and seconf most people are very aware of the fact that it is not private.   Many will give a politically Correct answer so it won't come back on them.   Also there are a lot of other variables that would change the answers.

Good point(s). As a psych major, I should remember that the way a question is a worded can have a big impact on how it gets answered!
