That's about every 50 minutes in awake hours.

In contrast, men thought about sex on average every 28 minutes.

The participates in the study were asked to record every time they thought about sex, food and sleep every day.

Women thought about food every 62 minutes and sleep every 72 minutes.

Men thought about food every 38 minutes and sleep every 33 minutes.

The study also found that 59 percent of women regularly fantasise about sex with their ex, compared to 48 percent in men.
