 Disgust Factor Reduces With Sexual Arousal

An interesting insight found that the 'disgust factor' turned out to be much less among those who are sexually aroused, a study of 90 European women has revealed.

Women were asked to perform a disgusting task, for instance using an already used tissue to wipe their hands or drink from a cup containing an insect. Some women were shown an erotic movie while some others were not.


The study found that women who were sexually aroused did not experience as much disgust while performing the tasks as compared to participants who were not sexually aroused.

The findings revealed that women's disgust response reduced with sexual arousal.

This study is interesting as it shows that sexual arousal does reduce inhibitions and allows people to participate in activities that they might normally find disgusting.

This study may benefit those suffering from sexual dysfunction disorders, and may also offer clues to therapists to fully understand sexual problems.
