Your fantasies aren't unique

You’re not as strange as you think: sex study:

In a recent study, researchers with the Université du Québec and the Philippe-Pinel Institute of Montreal surveyed 1,516 people in the province — about half of them men and half women — to learn about their sexual fantasies.

“There are many things found in the general population that don’t fit the definition of ‘normal,’ ” said Christian Joyal, the paper’s lead author.

The study is What Exactly Is an Unusual Sexual Fantasy?, Christian C. Joyal, Amélie Cossette and Vanessa Lapierre, 30 Oct 2014 in the The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

I found it interesting that the only two fantasies with low-enough self reports to be considered 'strange' were also 'frankly illegal'. I don't know about you, but I was wondering if the numbers for those particular fantasies would have jumped if they weren't something you could get arrested for.

All in all I think maybe the study was flawed methdology-wise. As always with most sociological studies, the numbers weren't nearly high enough. Plus if they wanted honest answers; asking the questions over the phone doesn't strike me as the best way to go about it.
