The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Can I get a "Duh"?

It's nice to know Alfred Kinsey's work goes on, despite his being dead and all:

Researchers at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University say most men are always thinking of sex.

A study released Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists found 54 percent of men and 19 percent of women admit they think about sex every day — or several times a day — in a society where they are bombarded with subconscious erotic images.

I rather suspect that if we were not "bombarded with subconscious erotic images," and if all the men looked like Abe Vigoda and all the women looked like, well, Abe Vigoda, the percentages wouldn't change in the slightest.

How does "several times a day" become "most men are always thinking of sex"? Gee, I know they need a teaser first paragraph, but that's really over the top.
