Best. Study. Ever.
Break out the Gouda, it's time to talk about sex.
I never thought I'd see the day as a sex writer that I would be able to combine what I do for a living with one of my greatest pleasures: melted cheese.
Thankfully, the world is weird, and people who eat grilled cheese are awesome and so here we are.
When you think of a grilled cheese sandwich you don't necessarily think raw sex. Rest assured, this article is not about to change that. While I don't hate the idea of writing a post about the best sex positions for eating sandwiches, that's not what we're here to do today.
What do you think of when you contemplate a grilled cheese sandwich?
You probably think toasted bread, golden butter, stretchy tart cheesy glancing against your chin.
While that does paint an erotic picture to be sure, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with sex, right?
For reasons heretofore unknown to me, nature, and science, the dating site Skout ran a poll on its grilled cheese loving members and found out that they have better sex lives than those who shudder at the sight of one of god's greatest creations.
According to the LA Times, in a poll of 4,600 people, they found that 73% of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least once a month, compared with 63% of those who don’t love grilled cheese. And 32% of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least six times a month, compared with 27% of non-grilled cheese lovers.
But the good news doesn't stop there.
The next time your friends try to stage a cheese intervention with you (so like, probably later today if you are anything like me) you can tell them that not only are you getting it a hell of a lot more than they are, but you are also more generous than the average bear.
81% of grilled cheese fans polled have donated money, food or time to a charity or a person who was in need. So suck it, cheese haters! You want to talk about heart health, huh?
Clearly mine is doing just fine between all the sex, cheddar, and do-gooding.
Viva la fromage!
