Survey links equality, sexual satisfaction
What is a little disconcerting to me is that even after the sexual revolution, we need a survey to tell us that men and women have better sex lives when there is mutual respect and concern for each other's needs and desires. Oh well, maybe they understand: "Ain't nobody happy if momma ain't happy."
Sex is more satisfying in countries where women and men are considered equal, according to an international study of people between the ages of 40 and 80 by researchers at the University of Chicago.
Austria topped the list of 29 nations studied with 71% of those surveyed reported being satisfied with their sex lives. Spain, Canada, Belgium and the United States also reported high rates of satisfaction. The lowest satisfaction rate — 25.7% — was reported in Japan.
"Male-centered cultures where sexual behavior is more oriented toward procreation tend to discount the importance of sexual pleasure for women," Laumann said.
