Now it all makes sense.

I was reading some links posted on Twitter today, and I saw this one from a site I had never seen before, Carnal Nation. The article referenced in the link is titled, "Smart Women Have Better Sex".

It has been said that the brain is the biggest sex organ, and now new research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that for women having brains leads to more orgasms and a more fulfilling sex life. A team of researchers led by Andrea Burri of King's College London surveyed 2,000 female twins between the ages of 18 and 83 about their sex lives, including a 7-point rating scale for their ability to achieve orgasm (from 'never' to 'always'). Researchers also distributed a questionnaire that assessed the women's 'emotional intelligence,' the ability to express feelings or to read those of others. The results show that women with a higher emotional intelligence had twice as many orgasms as women who exhibited little emotional intelligence. Burri said, " 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." Greater intelligence may also lead to more elaborate fantasies that help get the job done (whether alone or with a partner).

Burri and her co-authors note that up to 30% of women suffer from female orgasmic disorder (FOD), the inability to achieve orgasm, which is the second most common type of female sexual dysfunction. They conclude that low emotional intelligence is a significant risk factor for developing FOD and should be considered in future research and therapy for FOD. There you have it, smart women know what they want and know how to get it.

All I have to say about that is.......damn straight! I am also very lucky to have an intelligent partner! (wink)

This is not news. Smart women have healthier and more active imaginations, which always makes for better sex. I mean, you come home and your partner says, "Honey, why don't we rent werewolf suits tonight and have howling sex?" How can you resist?
