Physical Factors Motivate Non-Monogamous Individuals

Sexual motivations appear to differ based on relationship structure, new research suggests.

In a study of 449 adults, those in non-excusive multipartner consensual non-monogamous relationships (CNM) were more motivated by physical factors, such as pleasure-seeking, the authors explained. 

The findings are based on the results of two assessments: the Why Humans Have Sex Scale (YSEX) and the New Scale for Sexual Satisfaction (NSSS).

The results could help clinicians who may not be accustomed to working with individuals in CNM relationships. 

"Taking a blanket approach for treating men and women in different relationship configurations based on mononormative standards may not be the best practice," the authors said. 

The Journal of Sexual Medicine study was published online in March as an article "in press." Read more.
