MYTHBUSTER: Do you stop masturbating when you're in a relationship?

Masturbation is a wonderful thing. 

Single, dating or married, here at Mamamia, we love it. 

But do women of all relationship statuses really feel the same?

Watch: How are women having sex? The juiciest results from the Mamamia Sex Survey. Post continues below.

Recently, Mamamia conducted some very important research to answer all the ~sexy~ questions women want the answer to. 

How much sex single women are having? What the most popular time is to have sex? What's the best form of contraception?

Sounds pretty personal, right? Well over 1000 women *anonymously* put their sex lives on the line in the name of science so we could gather up some telling statistics about sex.

And we noticed something oh-so-interesting about our masturbating habits while in and out of relationships.

It turns out the rumours are true: coupled up gals aren't fitting in solo sessions quite as much as their single counterparts.

Here are the stats, broken down:

  • A whopping 10.7 per cent of ladies in relationships are never masturbating. Only 3.5 per cent of single women can say the same.
  • 14.6 per cent of coupled up women masturbate less than once a month compared to 9.1 per cent of single women.
  • 14.6 per cent of women in a relationship get it on with themselves once a fortnight, while 17.4 per cent of single gals fit it in the same timeframe.
  • 45.8 per cent of coupled up women have a wank once a week or more. That's compared to a huge 60.5 per cent of single ladies.

For those who love a good chart, here's one we prepared earlier for your viewing pleasure:

This... sort of makes sense, given our coupled up girlfriends are likely getting more action in the sack, but more on that here.

What do you think? Do these stats come as a surprise? Let us know in the comments below.
