When a woman says she doesn’t want sex with you, it’s not because she doesn, study says
If a woman wants sex with a man, it doesn’t have to mean she doesn\’t want to have sex.
Research shows that when women say they don\’t feel ready for sex, they often do so because they feel rejected.
The New York Times recently profiled a woman who told researchers that she wasn\’t ready for intercourse and then got an abortion after being told that her pregnancy was ”really bad” and that she could\’t go through with the abortion.
The woman said that she felt ”fearful, like my life was in danger” after being informed that she would be pregnant.
But the women who were more sexually open ended up having more sex than those who were not.
”When women say, ‘I don\’T want to go out with you because I don\’re not ready, that’s not true,” said Katherine O’Donnell, an associate professor at Indiana University and the author of the new study, which will be published online by the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
”People who say they aren\’t interested in sex, that they don’t want to get a relationship or even have sex, often end up with more sex because they\’re more sexually satisfied.”
The research, which was based on a nationally representative survey of 3,600 American women, found that women who reported not wanting to have intercourse said they felt more positive about their lives and their relationships after having sex with men.
Women who reported having sex more than once reported feeling more negative feelings about their relationships.
The survey also found that, compared with women who said they had sex once a week, women who had sex twice a week reported feeling less satisfied with their lives.
The study also found an association between women who report having sex once per week and more sex and sexual satisfaction.
Women in this group were more likely to be single, to have lower levels of education and more low-income than other women.
This group also was more likely than other groups to say they would be embarrassed by having sex.
O’Connor said that the findings suggest that it is not a matter of wanting more sex, but rather a matter that women should make more time for sex.”
If we are not taking care of ourselves, we will not have sex in our lifetime,” O’Connell said.
”Sex is about a lot of things, but it is about getting a good response from a partner.
We need to have that sex a lot more.”
What are the risks?
O’Connors study found that among those women who have sex with multiple partners, the most frequent sexual behaviors were oral sex, anal sex and masturbation.
But in those who have only had sex with one partner, the risk of unintended pregnancy was higher than among women who did not have partners at all.
The risks associated with having sex without a partner are much higher than the risks associated to sex with both partners, O’Brien said.”
The risk of pregnancy is really high, so you should have a partner that you really want to be pregnant,” she said.
O”Connor said she hopes her findings will help women make informed decisions about sex and how to best manage sexual risks.
”I hope that this is a start, to help us better understand and address the many sexual health issues that women face,” O’Connor said.
The findings are part of the first of a new study of women who want to end their pregnancies.
OBrien and her colleagues found that when researchers asked women whether they wanted to have children, a higher proportion of women were considering having an abortion than were women who wanted to keep their pregnancies in their body.
The results were similar for men.
A separate study published in the Journal (by O’Leary and her collaborators) found that men who had unprotected sex with other men were twice as likely to have an abortion compared with those who had never had unprotected intercourse with another man.
Researchers are looking at the data to determine how to reduce the risks for women.
OConnor said it is too soon to say what causes women to have unprotected sex and whether or not there is a link to sexual behavior.
”There is no evidence to suggest that having unprotected sex has a direct or causal effect on pregnancy,” she wrote.
