Well, let's look at it this way. There are six billion people in the world. Counting out children and people otherwise incapable/culturally prohibited from having sex, we have four billion people who have sex on a semi-regular basis. Let's say that on average, a person has sex every four days (a little bit more for married and older people, a little more often for younger and those more slutty souls). So, we have 1,000,000,000 people having sex in a day.

86,400 seconds in a day...

11,574 people having sex every second. (or ~6000 couples, or 5000 couples and a couple hundred threesomes, etc.)

An update/correction from Placer14:

That means every seconde at least 60 people are having sex also assuming that each person waits one second to start sex, no more no less. That would bring your 11,574 to 694, 444.

Assuming your 1,000,000,000 figure is fair, you'd still be wrong. Your 11,574 having sex every second is assuming that their sex lasts ONLY a second long. Give most people the benefit of the doubt and assume intercore last AT LEAST a minute. That means every seconde at least 60 people are having sex also assuming that each person waits one second to start sex, no more no less. That would bring your 11,574 to 694, 444.

First thing I thought of when I saw this thread was this song:

People Are Still Having Sex by: LaTour

Have you noticed that people are still having sex
All the denouncement had absolutely no effect
Parents and counselors constantly scorn them
But people are still having sex
And nothing seems to stop them

Do you realise that people are still having sex
Theyve been told not to, perhaps they are perplexed
When you see them holding hands
Theyre making future plans
To engage in the activity
Do you understand me

People are still having sex
Lust keeps on lurking
Nothing makes them stop
This aids things not working
People are still having sex
Its been going on for quite a while
Perhaps its quite fashionable
It hasnt gone out of style

Its a fact that people are still having sex
Its rather obvious its just what one expects
The evidence is all around that everyone in town
Has had it at one time or other in thier life
At this very moment people are still having sex
In a downtown condo or street in the projects
Although you cant see them or hear their breathing sounds
Someone in this world is having sex right now

People are still having sex
People are still having sex

Well, people not having sex...

Children (except Russia and wherever Roman Polanski is) + the male population of ATOT + all the nuns and monks in the world.
