An investigation proposes a figure of “perfect” relationships. What opinion do you deserve?
Psychology is a science that tries to explain the functioning of the mind and brain and the behavior of people, and scientific studies in this discipline are often curious and, therefore, the conclusions of many investigations are also curious.
One of the issues that arouse more interest in behavioral science is how we relate to others. In this article, we echo an investigation that reveals how many people should have intimate relationships, either within a relationship or as something sporadic.
Intimate relationships, a human need
Human beings are social beings and we are characterized by being born, reproducing ourselves and dying. To be able to reproduce, human beings enjoy pleasant moments and with the person that attracts us, and although reproduction is a vital necessity for the survival of human beings, intimate relationships are not a cold or mechanical act, there is an emotional component that turns this moment into something incredible, a unique and special moment.
Having sex, in addition, is health. There are many benefits of this practice: greater emotional well-being, less stress, helps to lose weight, has a positive effect on our heart, etc.
How many people should we have sex with?
As you can see, the health benefits are many, but not everyone has the same opinion about intimate relationships. While some people think of sex with a liberal mentality, others prefer to get virgins to marriage. Surely some people find it hard to believe that there are people who do not have sex, but … what happens when we do not have intimate relationships? We will tell you later…
Thus, there seems to be variety in the opinions of people regarding how many individuals we should share a bed with at some point in our lives. Regarding the question “with how many people should we sleep in our lives?”, A recent investigation seems to have sought the answer to this question.
The ideal number of people we should sleep with is 10
According to Illicit Encounters, a British portal to find a partner, the number of people we should sleep with is 10. To conclude this, the company analyzed the responses of more than 1000 people who carried out a survey.
This data is an intermediate number between what people consider to be too promiscuous and loose and what it is not to have enough experience in terms of intimate relationships. 38% of the female participants and 37% of the male subjects stated that the ideal number at bedtime with someone is between 8 and 12. Therefore, there seems to be no difference of opinion between women and men.
Additionally, only 3% of women and 4% of men thought that more than 20 people is the correct number of people with whom to share our moments of maximum intimacy.
Each time we are more tolerant and adventurous
But these are not the only data provided by the subjects of this survey. But they were also asked about their interest when it came to knowing the number of people with whom their partner had gone to bed. 35% of women and 30% of men answered that they like to know when they start a relationship.
This data varies between generations, being the least current those that show more interest and curiosity about the number of conquests of her boyfriend or husband.
Regarding this, Cristian Grant, spokesman for the company, explains: “Every time we think more freely about intimate relationships and about who we sleep with, as the years go by, the generations are increasingly tolerant and adventurous.”
And … what about the frequency of intimate relationships?
The data from this survey conclude that the number of people we should sleep with is 10, but it does not say anything about the frequency of intimate relationships.
How many times should we do it per week to be happy? This is what a group of researchers from the University of Toronto Mississauga in Canada asked. To test their hypothesis, they analyzed the sample of 30,000 subjects.
As the results showed, having an active sexual life favors happiness and well-being in the couple, but the increase in sexual frequency in a relationship has a positive effect on a limit. In other words, having sex with a partner is important, however, more is not always better.
