  • Lots of Sex may lead to Harmonious Relations

It has been found that lots of sex may lead to harmonious relations between the participants depending on the context.

Those who have entered the matrimonial bond tend to binge on sex sessions. Yet those who had a lot of nookie were no more happier than those who had it less often. However, their behavioral responses were different.

The study was published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

While markers of happiness showed no increase in those newlyweds who had sex round the clock, this frenzied sexual intercourse merry-go-round did have an effect on the heartfelt gut instinct response these partners showed for each other.

It is precisely these seat-of-the-pant judgments that lead to favorable or unfavorable impressions about each other among couples. A lot of sex does seem to be good for general health and well-being.

It aids bonding and increases greater chances of the female becoming a mother and also the child-rearing instinct that follows will be potent in its overall application. However, one loose end remains.

Couple who had a lot of sex were not any happier than those couples who did the deed infrequently. Part of the reason may be that sex still remains a taboo subject despite all the Freudian spiel in the world.

The issue at hand is that gut level intuitions are difficult to elicit from newlywed couples. People tend to be conservative with their estimates when asked by researchers and they prefer to act discreet.

The couples were given questionnaires to fill out. They had to rate their marriages as good or bad and pleasurable or un-pleasurable. Then they were given a computer task to perform as well.

A great many words appeared on screen and they had to judge them to be positive or negative. Before each word a pic of their partner would appear on screen for a few milliseconds.

The couples were also asked to report how many times they had sex in the past month or so. The results turned up valuable data. Those couples who had a lot of sex tended to value their partners in a more positive manner.

Over time this led to the pleasure bond and a great deal of love between the partners. The surprising finding was that even if one of the partners felt uncomfortable about the other one, he or she didn’t mention it.

The intimate link was implicit. Words could not convey the feelings simmering deep down inside every husband and wife. Thus better methods of inquiry will have to be constructed in the future if we are to get to the bottom of this issue of marital bliss.
