A recent study has revealed men have better sex with emotionally unstable women

Emotionally unstable women make better sexual partners, according to a study lead by Dr Julia Velten of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany.

Behaviour that is considered emotionally unstable is characterised by pervasive instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image and mood as well as impulsive behaviour. The study suggests men have better sex with women who fall under these criteria.

Lead researcher Julia Velten and her colleagues interviewed the volunteers about their sex lives, personality and sexual function, reports The Sun.

They found “men whose partners had less emotional stability reported better sexual function.” 

The study, published in the Journal of Sex Research, also found that men had better sex with partners who had similar traits — specifically being easily stimulated.

“In men who are easily aroused by erotic fantasies or visual stimuli, having a partner who responds in a similar way may facilitate sexual function,” the researchers said.

What women want

The study also found that women prefer men who are less agreeable but pay attention to detail, according to the German survey of a thousand people.

The researchers said “lower agreeableness of a sexual partner was predictive of better sexual function in women.”

A person with a high level of agreeableness is usually warm, friendly, and tactful. They generally have an optimistic view of human nature and get along well with others. According to the study, women can overlook a lack of these qualities in a sexual partner.

The researchers also discovered that “men who are thorough and dutiful may feel the need to satisfy their partner sexually, which may, in turn, lead to a better sexual function of their partners.”
