Skinny Jeans Are Better Than Sex?

If there’s one thing I know about Americans, it’s that we’ve got our priorities straight. We choose McDonald’s over home-cooked meals, use plastic over paper (an attempt to “Go Green?”) and love fitting into our old jeans more than having sex.

Wait, what?

According to a poll of 2,200 women conducted by (who else?) Special K cereal, more than a quarter of women, 29.1 percent to be exact, said that “fitting into an old pair of jeans” would feel BETTER. THAN. SEX.

Let’s be honest here. I’m in college – I drink copious amounts of alcohol. I eat bad food..and a lot more of it than I should. I would love to be able to shed a few pounds and pull my high school pants over my muffin top. But, better than sex? I don’t know about that one. Maybe if I was somehow fitting into my leggings from middle school. Or that awesome 98 Degrees baby tee I picked up at a concert.

Other responses included 28.9% who said squeezing into those skinny jeans would “beat a promotion,” (being thin > being rich??) and one in ten who said it would “beat a marriage proposal.”


I can see how there’s a connection between small jeans and sex (but more in that trying to squeeze into a tight pair of jeans is about as painful as your first time between the sheets….), but these results are really just shocking.

Honestly, who are these bitches having all this bad sex?

      maybe the majority of women polled were older (post-menopause or soemthing). that way, they would probably be bigger and sex isnt that big of deal anymore.

      It's sad that that many people are so obsessed with what they look like. But I guess we live in a sad world.

    3. Candie says:

      Special K probably polled the women who visited their website or were somehow connected to Special K in some way, which means they were probably already trying to lose weight, which means they probably are more concerned with their looks than the average American woman.

      Therefore, these results may well be biased. Or they just suck at sex.
