The Kinsey Institute just published another revealing report on sexual trends, based on interviews with couples in Germany, Brazil, Japan, Spain and the U.S. (via @patkiernan).One surprising finding is that men like cuddling more than women. Men who cuddle often are three times as likely as those who don’t to report a happy relationship. Women who cuddle often are only 1.59 times as likely to report a happy relationship.
Another is that women care more about frequent sex. An increase of one in the square root of the frequency of sex in the last 4 weeks resulted in a 1.24 increase in the odds of women enjoying a happy relationship. In other words, a woman who has sex nine times in a month is 1.24 times as likely to be happy as a woman who has sex 4 times in a month.
Men who have more sex than average are actually less happy with their relationships.
Cuddling and caressing led to increased sexual satisfaction in both genders. Not surprisingly men and women who have sex frequently also report higher sexual satisfaction.
