If you had to choose between sex and food, which would it be? For many the obvious answer would be the former—but according to a new study, Millennials are getting more of their pleasure from food.
An ad agency called Havas Worldwide has published a study of 11,976 people’s choices. The agency found that 46% of men and 51% of women surveyed agreed that food could be as pleasurable as sex.
Those surveyed were asked if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: "Given the choice between sex and an excellent dinner at a restaurant, I would choose the dinner." Only 26% of men agreed with the statement while a whopping 42% of women chose the dinner. And interestingly, more Millennials agreed with this than Generation Xers or Baby Boomers. Of those between the ages of 18 and 34 (a.k.a. Millennials), 54% said that eating can be just as (if not more) pleasurable as sex. And 35% of Millennials agreed that given the choice between sex and an excellent dinner at a restaurant, yes, they would choose the dinner.
The takeaway? Beyoncé’s lyrics were wrong—millennials don’t need to get it good in order to go to Red Lobster.
