A recent study with data compiled by Nick Drydakis, a lecturer at the Institute for the Study of Labor, a private research firm, may be evidence of a trend that may encourage more people to have sex more often. The study showed evidence that if people who have sex at least 4 times each week, they are more likely to earn more money. There are some areas of conflict and concern to still understand with this claim, but it is an intriguing thought with some common sense behind it.
A recent research study reviews health and wellbeing risks facing prostitutes (also known as sex workers) in the Westminster area. The Sex Worker task force has found additional evidence that suggests more violence is being experienced among sex workers that has become a local and national concern. Such evidence suggests sex workers are more likely to experience violent robbery attempts, sexual assault and rape. The task force also believes that such violence is being committed at higher rates, yet victims may be too afraid to report it after it happens.
A recent study reviews survey responses of female college students who completed Multidimensional Sexuality Questionnaire (MSQ) and Heterosexual Contact Scale (HCS) questionnaire. The questions were completed by women who may or may not initiate sexual contact with men. Women who didn’t initiate sexual contact scored lower on the MSQ in relation to factors such as sexual self-esteem and satisfaction. Factors such as geographic variations, anxiety and depression may be reasons why some scored lower than others.
Researchers study the significance of body odor and why it is an important factor in relation to sexual attraction. The purpose of the study includes investigating differences of body odors and fragrances between males and females. The idea was to learn what smells turn on men, women and their sexual partners. Heterosexual men, women, gays and lesbians participated in the study with floral sweet scents and musky-spicy scents being most common.
A study looks at controversial expressions related to pornography and feminism. In some cases the findings in such studies are interpreted or reported in different ways that may have a negative effect on how details are perceived. In this case factors are reviewed such as why pornography is debated among feminists, literature that criticizes the matter and lasting effects of research completed on the subject. In short, some researchers feel there should be ongoing studies on the subject or pornography but with attention to sensitivity.
