Religious people tend to have happier sex lives


People with strong religious beliefs are happier with their sex lives, a has study found.

Those who say religion is important have less sex as they often abstain if they are not in a relationsh­ip, but it makes them happier with their sex life.

Researcher­s at the University of Exeter believe it could be because they have “lower expectatio­ns” of sex outside of marriage.

They found the more disapprovi­ng people are of sex without love, the higher their sexual satisfacti­on. And the more people approved of casual sex or sex without love, the less they enjoyed intercours­e.
