Seth Stephens-Davidowitz continues with his Google search data-related op-eds for the New York Times. This time he looks at the insecurities in sex, based on the search volume of various phrases.

Interesting. But preface the results with a big fat question of sample population before you make too many conclusions.

For example, a straightforward conclusion from the above graphic is that boyfriends avoid sex way more than girlfriends. That seems off. Could it be that boyfriends avoiding sex confuses the girlfriends more than the other way around, thus making it more likely for girlfriends to search?
