Linda Franklin, The Real Cougar Woman, says, men who are good listeners are better at sex. I don't think this surprises us, does it ladies? We already knew what a new study has just revealed. Men who are good at communicating and listening are more likely to give us great orgasms.
But, hold on we, even though we already knew this about men, it doesn't get us off the hook. We have a responsibility too. After all fabulous sex is a two-way street. Women with good self-esteem and who are independent are shown to have a much better time between the sheets.
So, intimacy or if you prefer. emotional empathy is the key to a better sex life.
The research team from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is the first to find a solid relationship between mental well-being and sexual pleasure.
It looked at three qualities which measured how happy an individual was – self esteem, autonomy and empathy. These were compared to three measures of sexual pleasure: regularity of orgasm, enjoyment of receiving oral sex and enjoyment of performing oral sex. They found that sexual enjoyment in women was consistently linked to an empathetic male partner.
But in a surprising twist, men enjoyed giving oral sex more than women did.
This study looked at 3,237 respondents ages 18 to 26, but now this team is turning their attention to the sexual well-being in older men and women. It will be interesting to see the differences, if there are any.
I suppose it's no mystery why older woman enjoy the company of younger men. They listen, they care and they aim to please.
