Study: Only One In Six Cuddles Leads To Sex

Study: Only One In Six Cuddles Leads To Sex
Sex

We’ve all been there — you’re over at some girl’s house, you want to get closer to her on the couch in order to make your move, so you pull the classic offer to cuddle with her. More likely than not, you’re in for disappointment.

Scientists claim that only one out of six cuddles leads to sex.

The study, a first of its kind, shows the habits of hugging, and focused on the intentions of cuddlers.

The study shows that cuddling does not usually directly lead to sex, but rather is used as an opportunity for a couple to talk about their respective days.

Cuddling does have a sexual benefit, however, as the study found that couples that cuddled more generally had better sex lives.

Typical couples cuddle at least eight times a week, with each cuddling session lasting about 45 minutes.

The most popular places to cuddle are sofas, armchairs and beds, and — surprise! Women enjoy cuddling more than men.

The University of Michigan researchers asked more than 500 men and women in relationships about the frequency and length of their cuddles and how cuddling made them feel.

So while it won’t directly lead to sex, if you play your cards right, cuddling will certainly benefit you when she does want a little more action.

If I never hear the term “hook-up culture” again, it will be too soon. Everything that is seemingly wrong with our generation has been attributed to the above phrase. Do you have a fear of intimacy?

The Torture Of Loving A Person Who Doesn’t Love You Back

The first woman I ever fell in love with didn’t feel the same way about me. This wasn’t some sort of crush either. I really did fall in love and she really didn’t care for me that much. Sure, we would see each other pretty regularly. She was happy to see me, but not exactly […]

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Kids On The Street To List All The Bad Words They Know

Earlier this week, we posted a video of a small child naming every single bad word he could think of (which were mostly derivations of “butt”). Because it’s kind of his schtick, Jimmy Kimmel asked kids on the street in Hollywood to do the same thing and played the results on his show. For me, […]

‘Don’t Touch Me!’ This Parrot Really Doesn’t Like Being Touched (Video)

This is the most polite exchange I’ve ever heard between a parrot and its owner.

However, there is something about […]

‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Actor Andrew Garfield Says Spidey Is Jewish

Andrew Garfield thinks Spider-Man (aka Peter Parker) is Jewish. Garfield’s reasonings are extremely stereotypical: “Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can’t just switch off.” “He never feels like he’s doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he’s neurotic. He’s Jewish. It’s a defining feature.” Wait, […]
