Man is a complex creature, and plumbing his desires and fears can be a terrifying and eye-opening journey.

Unless, of course, it’s a survey.

The good folks at AskMen.com have done the latest work—for science, naturally—and rounded up 75,000 men for a comprehensive survey of the less-fair sex. The result is worth a look, so we’ve rounded up the most eye-opening numbers for your perusal.

19% of men do not own a suit.
We really don’t know what to say about this one. Don’t these people have friends who have gotten married or died? Non-casual Fridays? Semi-formal cotillions? We shudder to think of the numbers for tuxedos…

94% of men think that real men cry
Well, we could have told you that.

17% of men “have no sex life.” (Ah, marriage.)
70% of men are indifferent towards men who pay for sex
Actually, these two are probably connected…

59% of men believe no commercial portrayals of men are accurate.
Clearly they’ve never watched *Cavemen*.

48% of men are tired of hearing about Britney Spears
We’re surprised this isn’t higher. How much more do we need to see before we can all agree we’ve seen too much?
