New research has revealed a simple way that men can improve their performance in the bedroom, best of all it’s ridiculously easy.
According to The Daily Star a really common mistake among men is that after sex is, they don’t ‘cuddle’ – yes it’s really that simple.
In a survey conducted by the Sex Information and Education Council of Canada and Trojan condoms, women admitted they’re more likely to say sex was good if their man cuddles with them afterwards.
The study asked 2,400 Canadians about the last time they had sex and the majority of women said if they were cuddled for six to ten minutes afterwards they were much more likely to say they enjoyed the experience.
A massive 71 per cent of women said that some spooning after sex made the experience ‘very pleasurable’.
The study’s author Robin Milhausen, Ph.D. a professor of human sexuality at the University of Guelph, has explained that post-sex intimacy is just as important to women’s pleasure as foreplay.
She believes that this may be because after sex both women and men’s bodies are full of the bonding hormone ‘oxytocin’ which makes them crave affection so a quick cuddle is just the ticket.
Dr Milhausen also points out that sometime women can feel vulnerable after sex so intimacy can reassure them that their partner cares.
Speaking to Mens Health she said:
It’s one of the easiest things you can do to improve your relationship, it’s a really important, but often missed, opportunity for connection.
Surprisingly though most people who took part in the survey fell short of the six minute snuggle window while 17 per cent admitted they didn’t cuddle at all.
Interestingly, men also reported feeling more satisfied after post sex intimacy – so a cuddle’s great for both involved!
