Woman are more sexually charged at 40–study. An intriguing new study dwelling on how the quality of sexual life in females changes with age found that women in their forties experience both an improvement in physical intimacy and an increase in sexual desire. An intriguing new study dwelling on how the quality of sexual life in females changes with age found that women in their forties experience both an improvement in physical intimacy and an increase in sexual desire. As women approach middle-age, they display a heightened sex drive, indulging in fantasies and flings, initiating sexual escapades and seeking out new romantic partners compared to the younger women. Experts theorize that an increase in their sexual activity is
an instinctive reaction linked to their dwindling fertility. They are inhibited and engage in a variety of sexual activities in order to capitalize on their remaining childbearing years. Lead author of the study, Professor David Buss from the University of Texas at Austin stated, “Results indicate that women with declining fertility have greater sexual motivations and increased sexual behaviors than women with relatively high fertility. “These findings lend further support to the influence of the biological clock on women’s mating psychology to facilitate conception before the window of opportunity closes.” Study to assess the role of age in women’s sexual interests; Researchers carried out a social experiment to understand the significance of age in women’s sexual interests. As a part of the study, they split the 827 women into three groups: those at their most fertile (between the ages of 19 and 26), those experiencing a decline in fertility (27 to 45), and those who had reached the menopause (46 and above). All the participants were then questioned about their sexual attitudes and behavior. Findings of
the study; The investigators noted that women with low fertility became sexually adventurous. Not only were they having sex more, they were inclined to fantasize about bedroom escapades with younger men. In addition, they were more open to one-night stands and casual sex as opposed to women in the other two groups. A plausible explanation; According to the researchers, a women’s libido picks up with a decline in her fertility levels because of a deep-rooted psychological and evolutionary mechanism. Though conception becomes difficult after the age of 35, the basic instinct of a female will continue to motivate her to try for a baby until menopause. Dr Pam Spurr, an expert in sex and behavior stated, “I often find it is women in their late thirties who seem to be having a lot of fun. There might be a subconscious level to this but also a conscious one – women are more informed about fertility levels falling after a certain age.” The findings have been published in the ‘Personality And Individual Differences’ journal. news from: themedguru.com
~ Prof. David M. Buss (born April 14, 1953) is a professor of psychology at The University of Texas at Austin, known for his evolutionary psychology research on human sex differences in mate selection. Buss earned his Ph.D. in psychology at University of California, Berkeley in 1981. Before becoming a professor at The University of Texas, he was assistant professor for four years at Harvard University, and he was a professor at the University of Michigan for eleven years. The primary topics of his research include mating strategies, conflict between the sexes, status, social reputation, prestige, the emotion of jealousy, homicide, anti-homicide defenses, and most recently stalking. All of these are approached from an evolutionary perspective. Buss is the author of more than 200 scientific articles and has won many awards. Some of these awards include American Psychological Association (APA) Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology in 1988 and APA G. Stanley Hall Lectureship in 1990. Buss is the author of a number of publications and books, including The Evolution of Desire, The Dangerous Passion, The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology and The Murderer Next Door, which introduces a new theory of homicide from an evolutionary perspective. He is also the author of Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind which is currently in its third edition and was released in 2007. In 2005, Buss edited a definitive reference volume, The Handbook of Evolutionary
Psychology. His latest book is entitled Why Women Have Sex, coauthored with Cindy Meston. Buss is involved with extensive cross-cultural research collaborations and lectures within the U.S. In science, it has proven to be very difficult, if not impossible, to find exact definitions for concepts of layman psychology, by either stating the conditions that constitute a certain personality trait, or by exhaustively listing all the acts that identify a bearer of that trait. What exactly defines an individual as “creative”, “humorous”, or “ambitious”? Equally difficult is the measurement of how strongly a trait is pronounced in an individual. As a solution, Buss and K. H. Craik (1980) proposed to introduce prototype theory into personality psychology. First, a group of people is asked to list acts that a person bearing the trait in question would show. Next, a different group of people is asked to name from that list those acts that are most typical for the trait. Then the measurement is conducted by counting the number of times (within a given period of time), a proband performs the typical acts. ~ GoodNews International
