More American men feared poor sexual performance than public speaking
Back in November 2006 Men’s Health magazine published some surprising results from a web survey. 1356 visitors to their web site were asked if they feared five different things. Their results from page 40 are shown above in a bar chart. (Click on it to see a larger, clearer version).
Poor sexual performance (43%) and growing old (37%) were first and second. Public speaking came third (36%), just slightly ahead of death (35%) and air travel was fifth (12%). Note that this was not a random survey of the general population, but a self-selected bunch of buff dudes. Items in the main subject menu at the top of the Men’s Health home page are: Fitness, Sex & Women, Health, Nutrition, Weight Loss, and Style.
