Survey 2011 Results part II

More graph porn!

(click the graphs for larger, nude version…)

Explanation of categories:

  1. “In the Bedroom” – as a spice to sex
  2. ~
  3. “Scenes” – may involve sex or not
  4. ~
  5. “Kinked-up Day to Day” – light play whenever, chores are part of the dynamic, big decisions are made on an equal basis
  6. ~
  7. “Not Quite Everything” – the dom is in charge of most things, but there are carve outs, like family relationships, job, children
  8. ~
  9. “Really Everything Total Power Exchange” – no exceptions to the dom’s authority
  10. None

The majority of you want a D/s relationship with “Not Quite Everything”, this is the same as last year. The largest percentage (22%) have nothing, that’s the bad news (me too… *sigh*), BUT a very close second (21%) of you have D/s in the bedroom (yay!).

There are equal and increased numbers of you who would would like either “Kinked Up Day to Day” or “Really Everything – Total Power Exchange” relationships (16% and 16% respectively compared to 10% and 7% last year).

“To get a dominant woman’s perspective” is the leading reason for reading. That makes me happy! On the other hand, I am making fewer people think and fewer people are learning anything… meh, thinking and learning are overrated!

Those who chose ‘Other reason entirely’ left comments. I will share them in later posts (Wheeee! Fun!!).

Now the most important statistic…

I am 6% more magnificent than I was last year!!!

At this rate, I will be 100% magnificent by 2022!!! I can hardly wait! Be scared, be very very scared!

Many more survey results to come as I stretch out the free text parts into about a gazillion blog posts.

    I still think you need spanked. Hard. Yes, yes, I know, I know. That's not how it goes in Ferns Land. But still!- Magnificence Trajectory! I'm laughing my bottom off here!
    Anyway, I'm off to visit my mom and her mom. I hope the rest of your weekend is great :)

  2. I only discovered your blog last week, shortly after joining FetLife and reading some of your posts there, but I can already say that had I participated in your survey I would have been tallied among the “I think you are magnificent” category. You *are* magnificent, and your blog is informative, interesting, fun… this post is a perfect example.

  3. I laughed my ass off at the magnificence chart.
    Also, oh dear God, the free response is going to be shared. This is like the most deviant standardized test ever.

    I can't wait. Lol

  4. I wonder, Miss, if you have computed the correlation between the level of D/s desired and the level obtained, for the various demographics?

    (They don't call it pornoGRAPHy for nothing…)

  5. *high five and secret handshake

    I say throw one hell of a holiday party in 2021, invite me of course, and jump the bar! You have 10 years to plan it! I suggest live male art and waiters from your loyal fan base!

  6. Clarence: “I still think you need spanked. Hard. Yes, yes, I know, I know. That's not how it goes in Ferns Land.

    Correct, good boy *wiggles her arse at you*.

    “Anyway, I'm off to visit my mom and her mom.”

    *waves* Hi Clarence's mom and grandmom!

    *smile* Thank you, and welcome, b_quark!! I'm glad you are enjoying it!

    Hey!! Serious statistics are NOT funny!!

    “This is like the most deviant standardized test ever.”

    *laugh… nod nod* It has absolutely no credibility whatsoever!!

    I have not! But I will now, since you asked so politely, *and* included the chuckleworthy 'pornoGRAPHy' reference and plus, I am a graph slut!

    Ooohhh… brilliant idea!! And I love the idea of “live male art”… the possibilities!

  11. The increase in “Kinked Up Day to Day” or “Really Everything – Total Power Exchange” relationships may be due at least in part to excellent blogs like yours. I am curious about the “none” – does that mean respondants aren't interested in kink or they aren't getting any?

  12. dave94: “The increase in “Kinked Up Day to Day” or “Really Everything – Total Power Exchange” relationships may be due at least in part to excellent blogs like yours.”

    I do wonder why the increase, and I would love to take credit for… um… something, but it's speculation. I think that your question is partly why Etienne asked for more information about the demographics (ie “Who wants what” may shed more light on 'why').

    “I am curious about the “none” – does that mean respondants aren't interested in kink or they aren't getting any?”

    The green bar shows the ideal level, the orange is what they have now. So while there are 22% who don't have any D/s, there are 0% who *want* 'none'. I am not sure why that green bar rises above the X axis at all… I double checked and the statistic there is indeed 0%. Stupid Excel!

  13. Thanks for pointing out those small colored lines are links. The internet in the USA is still stone-age. After looking at all the graphs it seems most respondants have no kink and the next largest group are those who have it in the bedroom only. This suggests to me that your blog appeals to fence-sitters, curious lurkers or maybe introductory interests despite the it's considerable depth. It is similar to those who attempt to read a lengthy novel such as “War & Peace”: they read the first few chapters and set the book aside because it is too long for their short-attention span. Do you have a tag for “new to kink” for these initiates?

  14. Anonymous: “You need to include this pie chart in your next chart porn… “

    *laugh* Brilliant! But if I start including graphs from graphjam, I will never stop. I love so many of them!

  15. dave94: “This suggests to me that your blog appeals to fence-sitters, curious lurkers or maybe introductory interests despite the it's considerable depth.”

    Could be, but equally could be simply that those who are currently not in a relationship have more time to read, so here they are. There is no way to tell from the questions I asked. I fall into the 'Have None' bucket right now along with the majority and it's simply because I'm single.

    I could speculate that most have 'Bedroom Only because even if you are vanilla, if you have a GGG partner, you can play in the bedroom, so this increases the likelihood of having that level.

    I try not to assume too much about the 'why' because the possibilities are endless.

    “Do you have a tag for “new to kink” for these initiates?”

    Good question and no, I don't. I guess 'Advice' would be the closest.

  16. I love graph porn; and I come to your blog once in a while to get your perspective on things (and, well, coz the Fet submen group can be so boring…)

    Hmm, me? I enjoy getting beaten intensely, sex has little to do with it. And I do whatever she tells me to, no questions. (But chores and rituals are not part of the dynamics–so I don't know in which group I'd fall). Pretty much at the desired level, except having other kinky domme-friends would be nice.

    What about YOU, Gentle Blogger? Which groups would you place yourself in? (Desired and actual)

    Ha! Well, welcome!

    “Pretty much at the desired level, except having other kinky domme-friends would be nice.”

    Oh, you are one of the lucky ones to have pretty much what you want. Congratulations!

    “What about YOU, Gentle Blogger? Which groups would you place yourself in? (Desired and actual)”

    Nobody has ever asked me that!

    Have: None *cries and cries*
    Want: About level 6

  18. … And now you’ve got GUNS!… The next time you take this survey, your magnificence rating should be stratosphereic… If not higher!… OK, OK, I’m really going to bed now!
