|Men Like To Cuddle More Than Women|

Okay, so I now have your attention. Ladies, winter is coming up and we all enjoy some body heat! Just before you think it’s all about the sex (yet), it turns out that guys have a greater need for cuddling than girls.
Yep! Forget gender stereotypes. As it turns out, kissing and cuddling in order to be happy in a relationship, as well as in bed, is more important to men than women, according to a survey by the Kinsey Institute. For women, though, this type of physical intimacy is only important to enhancing their sex life.
I know! These results are very surprising. Published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, this comes from an international survey of over 1,000 middle-aged or older men and their female partners. Most of the relationships examined were long-term, with half of the couples together for 25 years or more.
More frequent sex, of course, led to greater sexual satisfaction, but it didn’t influence how happy the couples were with the relationship. Good sexual functioning—such as the ability to have an erection or orgasm—was needed for both the relationship and sex life. Surprisingly, women thought this was more important than man did in terms of sexual satisfaction.
Men were also less likely to be happy with their sex life if they had a greater number of sexual partners during their life. On average, the men surveyed had around 12 partners, while women had five.
And dudes, if she doesn’t believe that you just want to cuddle; well, then just whip out (no, not that) this article. The facts are right here, and who can argue with the facts!
