Avoiding Sexual Rejection   Leave a comment

This is not about sexual interest in women’s behavior in the context of men’s early encounters, where studies have shown that men tend to perceive greater sexual interest in women’s behavior than actually exists – known as ‘sexual over-perception bias’. But men’s perceptions within long term relationships, or marriages, of around 6 years or more.

Here’s the surprise: men always underestimate their wive’s libido!

Men want to avoid the disappointment of sexual rejection which could lead them feeling upset or resentful, and so frequently miss opportunities for sex by not realizing that in fact, according to research, women in long-term relationships or marriages are open to having sex on many more nights than their partners realize.

But, and here’s the rub, when women are open to the possibility of having sex, they will not necessarily take the initiative – and so their partners could simply fall asleep, not realizing they have missed their opportunity.

This news was reported today in the UK’s Daily Mail and drawn from three studies carried out by psychologists at the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario in Canada, and was published earlier this month in the Journal of Personality of Social Psychology.

The findings show that, unlike during first encounters, men in long-term relationships actually demonstrate an ‘under-perception bias’. Researcher Dr Kristen Mark said: ‘The assumption that women are going to be the lower-desire partner needs to be thrown out.’

This puts even more emphasis on the importance of communication – a skill developed as your relationship grows – helped along the way by reading up the chapter devoted to this life essential in Exploring Sex, Love and Lust. Don’t miss out on having sex tonight, or any night; be enlightened!

Happy love-making.
