Here’s the No. 1 thing women want for Valen­tine’s Day

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL - By


LIANNA BRINDED omen, ap­par­ently, don’t want choco­lates or flow­ers for Valen­tine’s

Ac­cord­ing to Birk­beck Uni­ver­sity and Har­ley Street clin­ics in Lon­don, it’s a ro­man­tic meal for two and sex toys. Af­ter hook­ing up 20 vol­un­teer cou­ples to spe­cial elec­troenchep­ha­log­i­cal (EEG) head­sets, sci­en­tists mea­sured women’s brain-wave pat­terns in re­sponse to gifts from their part­ners.

The re­sults showed that gifts most likely to make women smile are: Ro­man­tic meal for two 75% Fe­male sex toys 65% Lin­gerie 60% Red roses 30% Choco­lates 25%

Hu­mans have a feel­good fac­tor which is ac­ti­vated by any­thing that pro­motes the sur­vival of the species such as eat­ing, drink­ing, and sex,” in­de­pen­dent psy­chol­o­gist Dr. Bev­erly St­ef­fert said. “When re­ceiv­ing a gift, peo­ple are also able to think ahead and de­lay im­me­di­ate grat­i­fi­ca­tion for a longer-term re­ward.”

The com­mis­sion­ers of the re­search, the fe­male-sex-toy brand Smile Mak­ers, were of course more than pleased with the re­sults.

“We love the fact that Bri­tish women pre­fer gifts that demon­strate a sense of fun and imag­i­na­tion over tra­di­tional, clichéd presents like choco­lates and roses,” Peder Wik­stroem at Smile Mak­ers said.

So put away those bou­quets and Milk Trays; oth­er­wise you’ll make women’s brains sad.

Do you know what will make your part­ner smile

this Valen­tines Day?
