Woman’s brain more stimulated than man’s when aroused

LONDON — A female’s mind reacts much more and is more stimulated than a male one when aroused, according to a recent McGill University study.

For the study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers used advanced imaging techniques to scan brain activity in volunteers while they watched porn. And, they were able to detect higher levels of activity in a number of regions of the minds of females, when compared with their male counterparts.

In the study conducted on 20 men and 20 women, each of the individuals was shown erotic film clips while their brain vitals were scanned by two scanners.

Subjects were instructed, during each video, to use a four-button fiberoptic response box indicating any increase or decrease in their sexual arousal.

One of the scanners was an MRI machine that tracked stimulation in their brains. The other was a heat-seeking camera that measured levels of arousal through participant’s genitals.

The clips from Modern Family were designed as a comparison, to differentiate erotic arousal from humorous in the brain.

They found that genital arousal in women was more strongly linked with changes in brain activity, across numerous regions, than men.

“There were no brain regions in men with stronger brain-genital correlations than in women”, the study stated, according to the Independent.

While interesting, the sample size for the study was too small, according to Qazi Rahman, a psychology lecturer at King’s College London, further adding that more detailed research would be required to draw such certain conclusions. However, he did not deny the complexity of female arousal.

Writing in a paper detailing their findings, the authors said: “The finding was unexpected because most previous research has suggested that the correlations between genital response and subjective arousal are stronger for men.”

Couples with a good sex life are more likely to cheat, finds a study

Couples with a good sex life are more likely to cheat. Imge for representation only

Having great sex life in a relationship has been considered one of the most important factors as that would stop either partner becoming unfaithful. But a new research has found that having a good sex life only is not enough for partners as it may make one’s partner more likely to stray.

Researchers at the University of Florida assessed how newly married couples reacted to other people and found those with active sex lives were more likely to want sex with others

The team documented their sex satisfaction then monitored their interactions with others.

The researchers also found men with a more-attractive wife were less likely to cheat than women with a more-attractive husband . The authors said this sex difference is “consistent with evidence that partner attractiveness to men than it is to women”.

“With the advent of social media, and thus the increased availability of and access to alternative partners, understanding how people avoid the temptation posed by alternative partners may be more relevant than ever to understanding relationships,” the authors said.

They found that participants who quickly stopped looking at an attractive person were less likely to have affairs during the course of the study. The difference in the length of time of the gaze between ‘cheaters’ and ‘faithful’ people was just fractions of a second.

A person who looked at an attractive person for just a few hundred milliseconds longer was 50 per cent more likely to cheat than someone who stopped looking at the attractive picture.

As well as avoiding looking longingly at others, researchers found that faithful people also ‘downgraded’ how attractive they viewed others.

The authors say that faithful people — when asked to evaluate how good looking other people were — gave lower scores than people who went on to cheat.

At a time when potential romantic partners on social media that could tempt someone to stray is high, the authors say their research is more relevant than ever further suggesting that people who really enjoy good sex are more likely to be unfaithful because they seek out sex with more partners.

Younger people were also more likely to cheat. And men who had previously had lots of short-term sexual partners were also more likely to have an affair, although the opposite was true of women.
