If you ask a group of people what they think about more than anything else, it wouldn't be shocking if more than one answered "sex." After all, on average, people in the U.S. think about sex eight times a day and speak about it in some way five times a day, according to a 2019 survey from OnePoll, commissioned by adult product company Pure Romance. And while people's obsession with sex isn't likely to go away anytime soon, not everyone would put the act at the top of their list of favorite things to do. The fascinating part of that fact? What they'd rather do instead. Just about half (49 percent) of people who responded to an April 2021 survey said they would choose browsing the real estate website Zillow over sex.

The survey, conducted by California-based insurance agency Surety First, asked more than 1,000 U.S. adults about their browsing habits associated with Zillow, including what they'd forgo in favor of looking at the popular website. Read on to see what else the survey discovered about people's Zillow habits and try to wrap your head around the national obsession with the website.
