I count 7 sex-related questions on askme today. What's up with that? Desirous of titillation, I frequently check the 'sex' tag for askme. For weeks it's been fairly devoid of new questions. Then, bam, today... everybody wants laid. Is it seasonal? Or is it just folks who're triggered to write a sex question by seeing one earlier?

I suspect your final question is the right one. Presumably those questions are tough ones for the asker, but if they see others doing it, it might be easier to take the risk themselves?

It's Saturday, and people would rather ask sex questions at home than at work? Wouldn't account for the other weekends, of course, but I'm sure that's got at least a little to do with it.

I noticed this, bizzare. People need to stop thinking about sex so much.

Anonymous questions accumulate in a queue and then get posted in batches, so they throw things off.

Perhaps a brisk rogering is in order.

Perhaps a brisk rogering is in order.

For several of these people. Let's hope they take our advice, because we are true gods of the bedroom and those who do not take our advice will remain unfulfilled until the day they die.

Well, the anonymous ones get all posted at once, because they get posted by an admin. (Right?) So that's why those get bunched up. Plus, hey, it's Saturday night! Lotsa lonely people!!!!

Sorry... gotta go... have to post an anonymous AskMe.

I actually haven't posted to AskMe recently, but I would like to get laid, now that you mention it.

None of the Anonymous Askers saw the other questions before submitting their own, since they all went into the queue. Must just be some sort of strange coincedence.

Then, bam, today... everybody wants laid.

Except for those who want not laid.

Sex being a recurring topic in AnonAskMe is no surprise - often people don't want their real username/name/email tied up with potentially embarassing questions. Add that to the need for an admin to batch-approve (I think) anonymous questions, and that might account for some of the trend.

Well, the Portland meetup was a week ago, so everyone who slept with each other last weekend now has to deal with the fallout, see?

Of course it is, sex happens mostly in your mind

Most people are no better than mice when it comes to sex, in either deliberation beforehand or the content of the experience.

Maybe we're all just sex fiends.

Oh, that's such a stereotype. I'll have you know that every corpse I'm personally acquainted with gets plenty of sex.

this is the little-known principle of simultaneity in action. it works with buses too, you can wait half an hour for a bus and suddenly two or three will come along in rapid succession. if you're camping by the side of a remote road which only gets one car a day in each direction, the two cars will usually go past each other right next to your campsite. whenever you pick a flower, a star in the sky twinkles in sympathy for it.
