SWEET DREAMS

Men's Health (Singapore) - - NEWS -

Hit the hay early, and get lucky to­mor­row. Women who sleep longer are more eas­ily aroused, ac­cord­ing to re­search from the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan. Among those in re­la­tion­ships, an ex­tra hour of sleep in­creased the like­li­hood of ac­tion the next day by 14 per­cent. Sleep raises lev­els of sex hor­mones that af­fect de­sire, says study au­thor David Kalm­bach. Men, too, can im­prove their sex­ual health by log­ging more shut- eye, he says.

KEEP IT IN BARI­TONE Ac­cord­ing to a new review from re­searchers in Poland, at­trac­tion isn’t solely de­pen­dent upon your looks, but it also takes into ac­count how sooth­ing

your voice is. Re­searchers went back and looked at three decades worth of lit­er­a­ture, and found that your voice can con­vey a range of your traits, in­clud­ing how dom­i­nant you are, how co­op­er­a­tive you are, what your emo­tional state is, and even how big your body is. TECH TROU­BLES The dis­trac­tions of com­put­ers, tablets and smart­phones make it eas­ier for part­ners to lose their emo­tional con­nec­tion, and that can lead to cheat­ing, says Jenn Mann, host of VH1’s Fam­ily Ther­apy with Dr Jenn. “I see cou­ples who would rather do a Net­flix binge than make love. Stop star­ing at screens and spend face-to-face time,” she says.
