So what does paying for a bill have to do with sex?Women on some level may still believe they are in debt to the man if they take his offering of food, says Eric Marlowe Garrison, a certified sex counselor and assistant director of Office of Health Promotion at William and Mary.Thought you had to wait for a man to ask for your number?Not the case, with 95% of men saying it’s OK for a woman to ask for a man’s number, according to the survey.
The survey found that men are 43% more likely than women to believe that having sex helps to builds an emotional connection with a partner.
