If you’re a woman living or married to a man of a certain age, things just aren’t looking up. Literally. Though, for any woman who has ever craved more cuddling time with her man, this may just be the magical silver lining she’s been looking for. It’s all about perspective really, but a Kinsey Institute report has found that the ticket to satisfaction for men 40 and over is not an action-packed roll in the hay, but, get this — a good cuddle.
The Institute found that if he’s over the age of 40, snuggling up to him, along with caressing and regular kissing, will keep him increasingly satisfied. In fact, with these sweet gestures, he will be three times more satisfied than his cuddle-and-kiss-free counterparts.
The study involved a cross section of male participants between the ages of 40 and 70, hailing from the U.S., Brazil, Germany, Spain and Japan, with the average length of relationship being 25 years.
The shocker of all shockers, however, may be this little gender-bending tidbit — when women in the study were given affection, it proved to have little impact on their happiness levels. In fact, what the dames were more interested in was sex. Yes, so we have it, Venus and Mars collide again.
That said, the solution here is easy After all, men and women can always meet halfway, right?
A good round of lovemaking followed by some blissful, post-coital cuddling and heck, it’s win-win all around.
