When it comes to men, sex, and their taste in women, some women believe men want a female who is “all put together.” But, in reality, there are many men out there who want a woman who is…unstable.
The study used volunteers that have been in a relationship for an average of 24 years. The average age of participants was 51-years-old. People in the study were asked specific questions about their sex lives, personalities, and functions. The study tried to correlate personality traits to sexual pleasures and interests.
According to the results, “men whose partners had less emotional stability reported better sexual function” while “lower agreeableness of a sexual partner was predictive of better sexual function in women.”
Additionally, the study pointed out that age and sexual functions are directly related. The study showed that men’s age negatively impacts their sexual functions. And, that relationship timelines have nothing to do with how good the sex is. Therefore, couples who have been together for a long period of time don’t necessarily have a poor sex life.
However, men in the study basically claim women who are less “put together” put less pressure on them to perform well, and, they won’t feel as stressed while having sex—making it more enjoyable.
But other experts have suggested more research is needed in the field. Dr. Christian Jarrett wrote for The British Psychological Society:
“The results only present a static picture of the dynamics between the measured variables — we don’t know how they are causally related to each other.
Nonetheless, this study breaks new ground by uncovering the ways that our partner’s personality might have an influence on our own sexual function.”
