Smart people masturbate more, reveals a study
The scientific data that is sometimes offered to us has a relative truth, since people we usually lie quite often .
We do not tell the whole truth, especially in those topics that bother us or that weigh a cultural taboo. One of the most obvious is sex, where "normality" is a blurred concept. But every now and then there is some scientific study that sheds some light on the question of how we relate to the other sex and to ourselves.
Smart people masturbate more often, reveals a study
A recent investigation carried out in the United States has revealed a curious correlation between two variables: the level of studies of a person and the frequency of masturbation, finding that they are the people with the highest educational knowledge tend to masturbate more frequently .
This interesting and controversial study has been carried out by the National School of Health and Sexual Behavior directed by the psychologist specializing in sexual behavior Debby Herbenick, a leading researcher at the Kinsey Institute in the United States of America. She has led this research, finding that people with higher academic levels tend to masturbate more often.
According to the Catalan scientific disseminator Pere Estupinyà in his book S = EX2, the investigation was funded entirely by a well known condom corporation, and consisted of conducting surveys to a total of 6,000 US citizens between 14 and 90 years of age, selected in a rigorous manner, with a broad follow-up of the participants, being this one of the most complete studies about how we live sex humans in today's societies . The data and results of these surveys have received a lot of attention.
Results of the investigation
As revealed by the scrutiny of the polls, 71.5% of women between 25 and 29 years old admit having masturbated during the last year . A more modest figure, 46.5%, are women between the ages of 60 and 69 who claim to have done so in the past 365 days.
If we go into ages a little more advanced, as is the case of people over 70 years, the study reported that 33% say they have masturbated over the past year; a quite high figure if we take into account the popular belief that sex is not present in the lives of the elderly.
It seems that people with better training practice more onanism
Other conclusions of the study were, for example, the correlation between the academic level of the subject and the correlation of this variable with that of frequency in masturbation. As the headline of the news says, there seems to be a tendency for At higher level of studies, the individual usually masturbates .
On the other hand, the survey also showed that 25% of men and only 5% of women confess to having consulted pornographic content on the Internet during the last month. Another interesting fact, which has to do with protection in sexual relationships, is that 28% of men claim to have lost their erection when they were about to put the condom on at least one of their last three sexual encounters.
