How Chicago does sex
Windy City dwellers dish the dirty on their sex lives.
Here’s how it went down (so to speak): 791 Chicago-area residents took our poll, representing 59 neighborhoods and 65 suburbs. The most vocal group: 25- to 29-year-olds (33 percent of respondents), with 30- to 39-year-olds a close second. (Props to the one 70–79er who answered, a straight male from Evanston who’s dating several people and has sex four to five times a week, but would like to be getting it on more often.) Gender was nearly an even split, with 402 male, 385 female and four transgender poll takers. Sexual orientation clocked in at 619 straight, 91 homosexual, 78 bisexual and 3 asexual respondents. And who’s single in the city? About 30 percent of you, with a similar number in long-term relationships, 22 percent who already tied the knot and the rest playing the dating game. One thing you all have in common: You’re a pretty randy bunch.
