An Australian research shows that people that have an advanced sexlife are happier than others. Couples that practise for instance S/m sex turned out to be more harmonical than those who practise "ordinary" sex says kk.no
20 000 people took part in the study at New South Wales University in Australia and the result surprised the researchers. The approximately two percent of the study's participants that practised sadomasochistic sex and so called bondage were in general more harmonical and satisfied with their lives than those that had so called ordinary sex.
One perception that previously existed was that those attracted to s/m and other forms of advanced sex had been subjected to trauma and abuse during childhood, but that is not the case.
The research also showed that couples practising S/m are not more aggressive or prone to anxiety than others. They were also the least stressed psychologically.
The researchers are not completely sure why this is the case, but one theory is that people with an alternative sexlife are more in harmony with themselves because they have chosen to do something unusual and are comfortable with the decision, writes kk.no
I can only speak for myself, but I know that the relationship that I am in, with all of its twists and turns, has made me a lot happier...
