You heard us! People are picky about the age of sexual partners

A new research has observed that men and women have different preferences regarding the age of their sexual partners. Researchers suggested that because women were more selective than men in their sexual behavior, men were more unlikely than women to have sex with their ideal partners.

A new research has observed that men and women have different preferences regarding the age of their sexual partners.

The study conducted at Abo Akademi University in Turku, Finland suggested that the difference is much smaller between both the genders. Researchers suggested that because women were more selective than men in their sexual behavior, men were more unlikely than women to have sex with their ideal partners.

Therefore men's actual behavior followed more closely women's preferences than men's own preferences. The study approached 12,000 Finns and found that women, on average, are interested in same-aged to somewhat older men than themselves.

Men, on the other hand, show a tendency to be sexually interested in women in their mid-twenties.
