Here’s what was revealed.
Regardless of income, it seems most of us take an organised approach to self-love sessions. We kind of treat it like a to-do list. Drop off the kids at school? Check. Dentist appointment? Check. An intimate rendez-vous with the faux-climaxing stars of Redtube? Check. Evidently, 80 per cent of respondents earning between $100.000 and $150.000 are creatures of habit. They’re most likely to do the deed in the same spot, around the same time (safe to say they may not be the most spontaneous folk in the sack). Interestingly, only 50 per cent of those earning more than $150.000 said they were likely to have a routine.

One in three men think about celebrities while they masturbate. Jennifer Lopez won out the top position, with other ladies in the hot spot including Jessica Alba, Emma Watson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Megan Fox, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift. At one in five, women were a little less likely to think about famous people. Of the 20 per cent who said they do, Channing Tatum, Adam Levine, Johnny Depp, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake were high on the list.
Guess what... Men are more likely to have masturbation habits and rituals than women. Whether it’s watching adult content, looking at photos or using a sex toy, men will probably come back to the same tool, or show some sort of patterned behavior. 69 per cent of men and 54 per cent of women said they follow a routine. A separate study has found that, in Australia, 100 per cent of young men aged 15 to 29 have watched porn and just over 80 per cent of them have watched it on a weekly to daily basis in the past year. Comparatively, while 81 per cent of women have seen porn, only 22 per cent said they watch it on a weekly or daily basis.
In all seriousness, this is probably the most positive news of all. After centuries of being told masturbation would make you blind, make your palms hairy or is the sign of a grave mental illness, most people finally seem ready to ditch the stigma around the deed. The survey found that 85 per cent of respondents are more comfortable than ever before talking about the subject.
