Men underestimate women’s sexual interest

28 June 2016, 14:15 Anne Mutinda

Are you feeling an urge to get intimate but your male partner seems not to understand you are in a sexually energized mood?

Well, you are not alone! In a new research by psychologists from University of Toronto and University of Western Ontario, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, men in long-term relationships often underrate their female partners’ sexual needs.

The study, which involved getting heterosexual couples aged between 18 and 68 years keep a diary of their sexual desires, talk about them and express their partner’s perceived desire and happiness in a relationship, showed conflicting intimacy needs and perception.

In the days women felt more sexually interested, men read the opposite signs. Interestingly, this is a defensive mechanism for men against feeling of sexual rejection should she cast-off his intimacy needs according to the psychologists.

Also, psychologists found that the perception of women’s low interest in intimacy prompted men to work hard to entice them. They considered this to be the reason women expressed satisfaction and comfort in their relationships.
