Smart Girls Have Better Sex Lives

May 12, 2009

Brainy babes have better sex lives, experience greater sexual satisfaction, and have more orgasms than bimbos, according to new research.

The study, conducted by King’s College, London, shows that women with higher emotional intelligence (EI), which is the ability to express their feelings and read those of others, have better sex lives and more orgasms.

The study showed that low EI is a contributing factor to women who find it difficult to reach climax. According to the study, 30 percent of women find it difficult or impossible to reach orgasms during sex. This new research could help those women.

The research, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved a total of 2,035 female twins from the TwinsUK registry, ranging in age from 18 to 83. The participants rated their ability to reach orgasm and answered a questionnaire designed to gauge their emotional intelligence. The study found that those most in touch with their feelings have twice as many orgasms.

Andrea Burri, a psychologist and lead author of the King’s study, says, “Emotional intelligence seems to have a direct impact on women’s sexual functioning by influencing her ability to communicate her sexual expectations and desires to her partner.”

What do you think? Is this true?
