‘Dominant Women Have Less Sex’ Claims New John Hopkins Study
For a long time, there was a “myth” running around that women who are in charge of their career tend to have less sex than let’s say a woman who has a less empowered job. Well, a few researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have found out that women who have more authority to make decisions have less frequent sex.
After surveying a number of women in different countries throughout the world, one of the lead authors in this research study, Professor Michelle Hindin, concludes,
“A very consistent pattern was observed across all six countries we surveyed. The more decisions a woman reported making on her own, as compared to joint decision making, the less likely she was to have sex and the longer it was since she last had sexual intercourse.”
It could be the stress. It could be the hormones. It could be simply the fact that these women are tired. Carie Muntifering, a co-author of the study, wants to find a way to improve their sexual enjoyment. She says,
“Understanding how women’s position in the household influences their sexual activity may be an essential piece in protecting the sexual rights of women and helping them to achieve a sexual life that is both safe and pleasurable.”
Well, ladies, if your man is pressuring you, and you feel bad, just remember that this is your proof that you’re not crazy.
