Men With These Features Are The Best At Sex, Finds New Study
Sometimes, I wonder why so many women have trouble with sexual satisfaction is. Why is it that so many men just go to bed thinking it’s sexy time for them and the woman’s pleasure doesn’t quite matter? I used to be much more naïve until a couple of years ago. Even though I’d enjoy the foreplay, sex just didn’t make the cut for me to orgasm explosively. But men barely put an effort to bridge the orgasm gap we have. A study pointed out that the frequency of women’s orgasms is significantly lesser than men’s. We have science telling us that most men are not cliterate and need a low-down on how to please women, properly.
Honestly, I had no idea what sexual pleasure meant to be until I lost it to a lukewarm relationship with a guy who was more passionate about football than tongue-tennis. Well, I can say we broke up because we didn’t like the same sport. My point is, I realised that I can do with a guy who is invested and learning to improve our physical intimacy. But I can’t be with a guy who is content with his pleasure and has no interest in investing any sort of energy in getting better at pleasing me. It’s a deal-breaker! Only if there was a way to tell which guy would be good in bed.
A recent survey tries to solve that problem by finding out if you can actually judge a book by its cover, or men’s sexual prowess by their appearance.
This survey had 4,550 female participants who listed down the physical attributes of men they have had the best sex with. 73% of women said that their best sex partner was well-endowed in the…beard department! I always knew women are intuitive; we naturally get drawn to men with good beards. I know it’s all too wired in because these men look all masculine and all that. Jason Momoa’s beard and light eyes, damn! He looks like a big, bad guy but is the sweetest and is often supporting various causes.
A close second is men with brown eyes! 71 % of women said they had the best sex with men with those earthy eyes. Apparently, men with piercings and tattoos came in at 70% and 62 % respectively. Broad-shouldered men were at 68%. Beard, brown eyes, piercings, and tattoos and we have a Jason Momoa. Just saying, the man must be super good in bed!
Some women also said that lovers with small feet made good love to them. And the not-so-good ones? Men with big hands and bushy eyebrows.
A 2018 study published in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology found beard to “be more attractive to women when considering long-term [rather] than short-term relationships as they indicate a male’s ability to successfully compete socially with other males for resources.”
“Male-typical facial features such as a pronounced brow ridge and a more robust jawline may signal underlying health, whereas beards may signal men’s age and masculine social dominance. However, masculine faces are judged as more attractive for short-term relationships over less masculine faces, whereas beards are judged as more attractive than clean-shaven faces for long-term relationships,” the report explained.
Did you know that when you’re in the high-fertility face of your menstrual cycle you feel more attracted to men with beards? In fact, men with good facial hair are seen as more masculine, both by men and women. “As facial hair increased, women’s ratings of masculinity increased, too—particularly for women who reported being at the fertile phase of their menstrual cycle. Men had similar judgments of facial hair, except that they found full beards as appealing as heavy stubble. Men also noted a greater perception of masculinity as facial hair increased,” reads Psychology Today.
However, while most women consider men with facial stubble more sexually appealing, those with a fuller beard seem like good husband material to us. “These ratings suggest that an intermediate level of facial stubble is more attractive for a sex partner, while a fuller beard is perceived as indicative of someone with good fathering ability and more investment in offspring,” the report in PT reads.
But what’s interesting is that bearded men are also seen as more socially evolved, again, why wouldn’t we want a partner like that? “Specifically, bearded happy faces were rated as more prosocial than clean-shaven happy faces,” reports PT. “What does this all mean? It seems that there is a duality in beardedness. Beards can convey a commanding presence, especially when expressing anger or frustration. But this rough edge may be disarmed with a smile, resulting in a face judged to be even more helpful, accepting, and friendly than a shaved face,” an article in PT explains.
