As strange as it may sound, according to the latest researches, the socio-economic status of people seems to affect their sexual satisfaction, especially in case of women. This means that the women who have a higher socio-economic status usually have a more satisfying sex life.
In order to reach their conclusions, the researchers carried out over 9,500 surveys. Based on the results we can say that about 90% of all men and women are satisfied by the sex life and 95% of the surveyed people were satisfied by their sex life in the previous year.
Stable vs. Casual
Let’s face it: the majority of people would think that people are happier with casual partners than with the stable ones. However, the survey shows us that 97% of men and 96% of women are happy with their stable partner vs. the 88% of men and 80% of women who get more satisfaction from casual partners.
The survey also revealed that 73% of men and 77% of women use contraception regularly in case of a stable relationship whereas this ratio increases to 86% in case of men and 92% of women when it comes to a casual partner.
The socioeconomic factors also influence the sexual habits of people. For example, those of a lower socioeconomic status use contraception less frequently. We also have to think about sexual abuse. This phenomenon is more common in case of the people with a lower socioeconomic status.
Causes and Effects
It has been mentioned before that the people of a lower socioeconomic status tend to have less satisfying sex. This might be because those of a higher socioeconomic status know what they want and need and they can develop their sexuality to reach maximum satisfaction. They also have more awareness when it comes to contraception methods.
Although it has been a taboo topic for a long time even in the more civilized cultures, now we know that in order for people to reach their maximum potential, there is need for them to be happy with their own sexuality. For this they need to have a respectful and positive approach.
No matter what socioeconomic status you have, you should make sure that you make the best of your life on all accounts, including your sexuality. You shouldn’t let anyone take this away from you no matter who they might be.
