Men's Health (Singapore) - - BULLETINS -

Be­ing aware of why hu­mans are mo­ti­vated to have sex can re­sult in a more ful­fill­ing love life, sug­gests a study by the Univer­sity of Toronto. The re­searchers clas­si­fied sex­ual mo­tive into two main cat­e­gories: pos­i­tive (“I want to feel closer to my wife”) and neg­a­tive (“I don’t want to feel guilty”). Peo­ple who had sex mostly for pos­i­tive rea­sons re­ported higher sex­ual sat­is­fac­tion and vice versa. “When peo­ple have sex more of­ten for neg­a­tive mo­tives, bad out­comes build up,” warns study au­thor Dr Amy Muise. If pos­i­tiv­ity-driven sex is hard, con­sider see­ing a sex ther­a­pist with your spouse.
