A new survey has revealed that a person’s job profile can reveal a lot about their sex lives.

The Great Australian Sex Census, which was conducted by dating site redhotpie.com.au on 17,000 Aussies about their bedroom behaviours, has 54.5 per cent people, who worked in the legal industry are most satisfied with their sex lives, News.com.au reported.

It was also found that almost half of those in IT and telecommunications, 44 per cent, said they were unsatisfied in the bedroom, while real estate agents lived up to their sleazy reputations, with 44.7 per cent sleeping with more than 21 people in their lifetime.

The Sex Census also revealed 51.9 per cent prefer to have sex in a bed, while apartment balconies 7.1 per cent are the second most popular, followed by the shower 6.6 per cent, and on the beach 5.8 per cent.

Why hungry men fall for curvy women

A new study has revealed that hungry men find bigger women more attractive especially those with fuller breasts.

According to the Telegraph, however their opinion might change once they have satisfied their hunger.

Dr Viren Swami, of WestminsterUniversity said that hunger can change a person’s perception of who is attractive, so a man prefers slightly larger breast size in women and as for women they also prefer a slightly heavier man.

The results suggest that when resources are scarce people are attracted to larger members of the opposite sex, as bigger bodies indicate success in accessing food.

However, Professor Gareth Leng, of the University of Edinburgh said that the science behind it is that hunger and libido are controlled by the same part of the brain.

The research also established that deemed sexist are more attracted to thinner women but most significant factor in appealing to the opposite sex is kindness.

Researchers have said that couples are more likely to sleep in sync when the wife is more satisfied with their marriage.

Results show that overall synchrony in sleep-wake schedules among couples was high, as those who slept in the same bed were awake or asleep at the same time about 75 per cent of the time. When the wife reported higher marital satisfaction, the per cent of time the couple was awake or asleep at the same time was greater.

Lead author Heather Gunn, PhD, postdoctoral scholar at the University of Pittsburgh, said most of what is known about sleep comes from studying it at the individual level; however, for most adults, sleep is a shared behaviour between bed partners.

She said how couples sleep together may influence and be influenced by their relationship functioning.

The study group comprised 46 couples who completed relationship assessments. Objective sleep data also were gathered by actigraphy over a 10-day period.

The study has been published online in the journal Sleep.

A new study has revealed how pleasant scent plays a crucial role in altering people’s perception towards others.

Janina Seubert, a cognitive neuroscientist said that odour pleasantness and facial attractiveness integrate into one joint emotional evaluation and this may indicate a common site of neural processing in the brain.

The study was focused on finding odour’s influence on two factors -- perception of facial attractiveness and cognitive task of age evaluation.

Researchers found that odour pleasantness directly influenced the judgment of facial attractiveness but provided mixed results for the age perception.

Jean-Marc Dessirier, Lead Scientist at Unilever said that these findings have intriguing implications in terms of how fragrance might help enhancing natural appearance within social groups.

The study was published in open access journal PLOS ONE.

Men enjoy foreplay more than women

A new study suggests that men enjoy foreplay more than women and would like the build-up to sex to last longer than their lovers.

Findings also show that ladies reach orgasm first nearly half of the time.

Some 18 per cent of men already spend up to 30 minutes on the build-up -- but almost a third would ideally like it to be even lengthier, the Daily Star reported.

And perhaps surprisingly a tenth of men would happily linger on the preamble for an hour or more.

The findings shatter the long-held myth that men take part in foreplay purely to please their partner and they are only concerned with intercourse.

In fact the survey of 2,000 people revealed that men actually want to spend longer than women in the realms of foreplay.

Of the women questioned 17 per cent claim their average foreplay time is around 25 minutes. And a quarter cite between 20 and 30 minutes as an ideal period.

According to the survey, commissioned by Lovehoney and relationship expert Tracey Cox, men would also ideally spend longer on intercourse too, with a third desiring a session lasting between 20 and 30 minutes.

For 16 per cent of women, a love-making session of half that time is perfectly acceptable.

Couples with TV in bedroom have more sex

A new study has revealed that couples have double the amount of sex if they have a television in their bedroom.

Two thirds of Brits also thought they have a healthier sex life because of it and around half of those are happy they can watch their favourite programmes at the same time, the Daily Star reported.

According to the poll, just under half (47 per cent) of people admit to actually watching the telly during their necking sessions with their partners.

While 26 per cent of those who don’t have a TV in their room said that they thought it might make them less active in the bedroom.

The research was conducted by VoucherCodesPro.co.uk and 2,431 people in relationships were asked about their love lives and how TV can play a big part in it.

More than a third (37 per cent) of partners that have a TV in their room thought it improved their sex life because they can watch erotic movies and programmes together.

Yet 29 per cent said their partner would put something boring on and therefore sex would distract them from it.

And a surprisingly small minority of just 14 per cent of those who have a TV in the bedroom said that it brings them and their partner “closer together”.
