SOMETIMES I get a little bit selfish and choose a good meal over sex.
When I think back on my last relationship, there were times when I just wasn’t in the mood, so I would sit around in my PJs eating Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. My ex was a bit annoyed at that!
And after I’ve pigged out on sweet treats, the last thing on my mind is getting physical in
the bedroom. FOR centuries women have been fiercely divided over one simple question… what’s better – food or SEX?
But it seems for us blokes, the debate is officially settled – we’re willing to STARVE for a legover!
Bonk boffins have finally proven that male brains are wired to ignore food in favour of sex.
New scientific research has confirmed that men are “engineered to be more sensitive to sex than food” when given the choice between the two.
And lab tests suggest that we are willing to go HUNGRY if it means having an extra fumble between the bedsheets!
And how did these brainboxes arrive at such a baffling conclusion? Worms! Researchers observed a species of microscopic roundworms – C.elegans – and found that male worms almost always chose finding a mate over looking for food.
A source from the University of Rochester said: “Although this study did not involve humans, many previous discoveries made by observing this species of roundworm apply to most other animals.
“These male subjects prioritised social activity – in particular sexual activity – over basic needs, such as eating, sheds light on similar behaviour exhibited in humans.”
In a separate experiment, scientists genetically engineered some of the worms to be “more sensitive” to food. They found that these ‘ hungrier’ creatures were less successful at mating
