Everyone knows that men and women think differently. But nowhere is the difference more apparent than in the attitudes on sex and courtship. Here is an interesting study on kissing and what turns men and women:
Researchers in the US have determined what many of us already knew: women think of long-term relationships while kissing, and men think of sex.
"A lot of the findings might seem self-evident but what’s self-evident to females is not always to males," Gordon Gallup, an evolutionary psychologist who led the study at the State University of New York (SUNY), said.
Lesser-known phenomena that the researchers hit on in the study, in which 1,041 US university students took part, included the fact that men like their kisses wetter and with more tongue contact than women, and that women place more importance than men on the state of their kissing partner’s teeth.
Just over half the men said they would have sex with someone without kissing, compared with 15% of the women who took part in the study, which was carried out using "self-reports, not direct observation or experimental manipulation."
