According to a new study conducted in U.S. the high sexual rating is closely tied to physical attractiveness. The study explains that men are more likely to think of sex when they meet a woman even it's for the first time. The study appears in the June's issue of 'Psychology of Women Quarterly'.
According to an online edition of a health magazine Maurice Levesque who had worked on the study while at the University of Connecticut and now works with the psychology department of North Carolina's Elon University and other researchers studied 43 men and 43 women and found that when a man and woman meet for the first time, men may be more likely to think about sex or to say the least more likely to admit it.
The participants were first asked to complete some surveys that were designed to gauge the masculinity and femininity about themselves. The researchers then paired men and women who didn't know each other. Each pair were asked to sit at a table for two and chatted for five minutes. The only advice the pairs were given was to break the ice by introducing themselves and to talk about positive and negative collage experiences.
At the end of 5 minutes the pairs were asked to fill the surveys about their partners and the conversations they had before leaving. The researchers found that men had rated their female partners as more sexual especially if they found that she was physically attractive too than the women who rated their male partners.
The researchers said that it was not quite clear as to whether men paid an extra amount of attention to women's sexual traits, or did women suppress their ratings of men's sexual traits, but that it has bought up a good question for future studies.
