Did you think that only the fairer sex was more vulnerable to cupid’s arrows? Well, then think again. Contrary to popular belief, sex with love is more important to men than women, or so a recent study points out.
The findings show that women are more likely than men to enjoy casual romps when they have no ­emotional attachment to their partner.
A Britain-based sex toy firm, Lovehoney, carried out a research in which two-thirds of females ­questioned (66%) said it was possible to have great sex without love as compared to only 62% of men.
While ‘love’ seemed to play an integral role for a happy sex life for both the genders, the number of men (48%) voting for love clearly outweighed the number of women (39%) voting for the emotion.
Hinting towards a female sexual rising of sorts, the study also showed that the ladies are more likely to place emphasis on sexual chemistry as compared to the men.
The study, which is based on the poll of 6,000 people, also showed that while an emotional attachment was more important to men than women, they also placed more emphasis on looks.
Three-quarters of men who volunteered (74%) for the study feel that a romp in the bed could be great also with somebody they found ­physically attractive, but did not really bond with, ­compared to 59% of women.
A spokesperson for the sex toy brand says, “This new research shows that men are more in touch with their emotions and the days of the stiff upper lip are well and truly over,” adding that women are prepared to take the lead in the bedroom without any emotional baggage of any sorts.
