New Survey by Esquire and Cosmopolitan Shed Light on How Genders View Sex

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. – Esquire and Cosmopolitan released the results a massive survey called “Sex and America” Monday. Two-thousand men and women were asked what they think about everything ranging from sex on the first date to how society treats women.

Dr. Leslie Donnelly is a psychologist who practices in Salisbury. She says surveys like this are good because they get people talking about important issues. She was surprised to see how often men and women agreed, but did notice some differences. “The biggest difference”, according to Dr. Donnelly, “was in perception.”

According to the survey, men did not view rape or sexual harassment as being as big of a problem as women do. The survey shows that a boss telling an employee their new haircut looks pretty or handsome is agreed between the sex to not be sexual harassment, but rather a compliment that doesn't warrant any issues being raised.

As for the differences in understanding situations, Dr. Donnelly says the best way to resolve that is to communicate with one another.
