 'Closeness' and 'intimacy' are Most Valuable Things in Men's Sex Lives
'Closeness' and 'intimacy' are the most valuable things in the sex lives of men, according to a global study.

The survey involved more than 1,000 committed couples aged in mid-life or older, from the US, Spain, Japan, Germany and Brazil, reports the NZPA.

They were asked about the importance of their relationship, sexual behaviour and also the role sex played independently in the health and life satisfaction of the men and women.

Men returned stereotype-busting results on the question of what they derived from sex.

"Partnered sexual activity is important to men and women across all countries," the study said.

"Contrary to cultural stereotypes, across all countries surveyed, men rated the importance of sex for closeness and intimacy to their partner more highly than did their female partners," the study added.

In the survey, it was found that American men rated the importance of having "sex for intimacy" at 8.14, compared to 7.5 for US women, and the other countries continued in the same pattern.

However, the results could be skewed by women generally placing less importance on all matters to do with sex, and it also seems they are generally less interested in having it.

The study has been released at the Congress of the European and International Societies for Sexual Medicine in Brussels.
