Everyone knows that many women are drawn to “bad boys,” however, in a recent study, the dynamic was reversed for scientists to observe how men viewed bedtime encounters with different women. What they discovered is truly fascinating.
No female ever sets out to be the “crazy girlfriend,” but if this study is right, it could mean that that’s exactly what men want.
In a German study, over 1000 participants were observed. On average, they were around the age of 51, with relationship averages being around 2 years. The point of the study was to understand what makes people tick.
For the women in the study, observed physical desire, satisfaction, ar0usal, and 0rgasm. For men, they observed erectile dysfunction, passion, pleasure, and 0rgasm.
The leading researcher for the study was Julia Velten, and she, along with her colleagues, interviewed the participants to discuss the aforementioned topics.
What they found was that “men whose partners had less emotional stability reported better physical function” while “lower agreeableness of a physical partner was predictive of better physical function in women.”
For those interested in understanding the complexities of sexual relationships and the influence of personality traits, “The Psychology of Sex and Gender” by Jennifer K. Bosson, Joseph A. Vandello, and Camille E. Buckner offers an in-depth exploration of the subject.
Additionally, they found that “men who are thorough and dutiful may feel the need to satisfy their partner physically, which may, in turn, lead to a better physical function of their partners.”
The study’s findings were published in the Journal of S ex Research, and also found that men had better encounters with partners who were easily stimulated.
“In men who are easily aroused by fantasies or visual stimuli, having a partner who responds similarly may facilitate sexual function,” explained the researchers.
And while the fact that men enjoyed encounters the most with emotionally unstable women was pretty fascinating, I thought the major takeaway was their conclusion, which stated, “This finding implies that a healthy physical life is possible even in long relationships,” and then finishing, “the study breaks new ground by uncovering the ways your partner’s personality might influence our physical function.”
Additionally, “Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love” by Helen Fisher provides a scientific perspective on love, attraction, and relationships, delving into the biological and emotional factors that play a role in our intimate connections.
