For Women, More Sleep Could Mean Better Sex

Women who sleep longer at night tend to feel greater sexual desire and more genital arousal than women who sleep for shorter periods, American researchers say. 

In fact, women who sleep one hour longer each night are more likely to have sex with a partner the next day.

During the two-week study period, 171 college-aged women submitted daily reports describing their sleep the night before and their sexual activity during the previous 24 hours. 

Overall, the women who slept longer usually had better sexual function. The researchers weren't sure why, but thought that hormones might be involved.

The study was published recently in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. More information on the study can be found here

Watching Sexually-Explicit Videos: Good for Erections?

It's often thought that viewing sexually-explicit material can interfere with one's sex life.

But new research published in the Journal Sexual Medicine suggests otherwise. 

American and Canadian researchers worked with a group of 210 young men who reported how much sexually-explicit content they generally watched at home each week. 

Next, the men watched sexually-explicit films in a lab and explained how aroused they felt after each one. 

Men who watched more content at home tended to feel more aroused in the lab. They also had more desire for partnered sex and solo masturbation.
