Survey: What Women Really Think About Sex, Fitness & You
We asked more than 100,000 women - including Playmate Sara Underwood - to give you the truth about sex.

You don't need a scientific poll to tell you that guys think about sex 99.9% of the time. (Standard deviation +/- 0.1%.) At home. At work. And, yes, at the gym. If only you knew what girls at your gym really thought about sex: What body parts turn her on? Should you ask her out while she's working out? Does she fantasize about guys from her health club? We asked so you don't have to (because really, how awkward would that watercooler conversation have been?). Our source? The readers of Shape magazine for starters, and we also managed to pry some revealing answers from the girl in the pictures (trust us, she's legit).
Attack of the Show presenter and 2007 Playmate of the Year Sara Underwood is undoubtedly at the top of the smoking hot girl food chain (see accompanying photos), so if you want to know what a beautiful woman is thinking at the gym, keep reading. She's answered some of the survey questions personally—and oddly enough, she says she's never been hit on at the gym. "I don't know why that is," she says, "but it's never happened. Maybe I just don't look hot while I'm working out, or I look mean and unapproachable." As for her preference in male body parts, Sara's definitely a glute aficionado. "You don't get to see a good butt on men that often. Women are obsessed with their butts, and work them out all the time, but men forget about their butts at the gym. It's important, because we look."
