What do you think would happen if an attractive woman approached a stranger and asked him to have sex with her? And what about the other way around – think you’re pretty sure of how things would go down if a guy came up to a girl and asked her to have sex with him? Well, you might be right… and wrong all at the same time.
The peeps over at Youtube channel Whatever have put together a “social experiment” where they attempted to capture on film, the reaction of 100 people who were propositioned for sex by a stranger.
The mission statement went like this:
I wanted to do a social experiment comparing and contrasting how males and females respond differently to being outright asked if they want to have sex. I had a pretty good idea of how it was all going to go down beforehand, but I thought it would make for an interesting and entertaining video nevertheless.
It really is some fascinating content. The reactions of the males and females in the video seem to differ to what you think is most likely to happen given the situation. Some of the women in the video are quite amused while some of the men even resort to calling the 5-0 on the random woman thinking she was a sex worker. The female lead manages to get seven men out of 14 men to agree to have sex with her, while her male counterpart just got laughed at quite a bit. Are we all still sexist? After watching these clips I’m thinking yes.
