Psychologists from the University of Toronto said that their latest study proved that it is not worth discussing sex with friends.
Scientists say that they have found out that it is not worth sharing the details of intimate life even with the closest friends, since this negatively affects the quality of relationships and sex life. According to scientists, discussion of problems and achievements in this area leads to a noticeable decrease in the quality of sex.
The thing is that people subconsciously begin to compare themselves with friends and try on what they tell about their intimate life and react to the assessments that they give to their stories. At the same time, it is not even known whether friends are really telling the truth or embellish their personal lives. However, subconsciously, these stories can be remembered and the next time lead to failure in the intimate sphere.
Listening to stories about sex, a person can lower his libido, because it will seem to him that he is not good enough and not experienced enough in various issues, and it does not matter whether this is really so or not. Psychologists advise to give up the habit of telling the details of sexual pleasures to others.
The study also showed that those who often share with other details of their personal and intimate life more than others are dependent on the assessment of others and may suffer from unflattering statements, they will painfully perceive any criticism that their close friends may say, even without intending to offend person. At the same time, both men and women are subject to this comparison.
Scientists have previously shown that sex affects the duration of sleep.
