- Normal intercourse results in greater satisfaction, better intimacy, promotes more trust with passion and real love.
- Hanky panky without intercourse does not give true satisfaction and is less intimate, passionate and loving.
- Masturbation does not result in effective satisfaction, is less intimate and does not promote trust, genuine passion or love.
These are the outcomes of a new study of Portuguese women looking at relationship quality and sexual activity.
Satisfaction increased as masturbation decreased and penis-vagina sex increased.
Now what’s so new about that? Nothing I guess! But someone had to find out for sciences sake. Anyone’s that’s had sex with a partner and compared that with hanky panky without penis-vagina penetration will know what’s better. Additionally, masturbation just does not compare.
No mention is made of sexual orientation. One assumes the women were heterosexual. Lesbian’s may have a different perspective on these activities.
What do you think? Do you agree?
