Do we know where the statistic comes from? What study, how many people were asked, what country, what age groups, how long ago?

This is deeply frightening. Perhaps porn is the engine of the return of misogyny in all sorts of ways? I see it online in social media, even people who say they are feminists or feminist allies. the labeling of all women as something crappy (bodies for consumption, preferably with sadism, when young, Karens who should be silenced when not so young).

Someone linked to the XX subreddit some time ago (I don't go to Reddit anymore as it's a misogynistic hellhole, except when someone links to it from here etc.), and several people who said they are women explained how they like to be hit or strangled while having sex.. It seemed something to be proud of.

And now I also wonder if that stuff about young (?) men not being able to find young women to date (and those women not wanting to date) is because maybe getting called a slut and being spat at isn't exactly the kind of thing every young girl has dreamed about?

The statistic came from a webinar put on by a human sexuality researcher by the name of Debby Herbenick and that is all I know.
