It would also be worth considering how honest people were in participating in this survey.

For instance, it says that 21% of males visited adult websites compared with only 5% of women. In real life, both figures are probably a fair bit higher.

The survey also concluded that 10% of women seeked info on how to quit smoking, compared with only 5% of men who have a higher smoking prevalence rate than their female counterparts in the US. One would think that these days, the incentive to quit smoking is just about equal for both sexes.
