Intelligent women enjoy sex more than 'bimbos', research finds (Actual Study)
Daily Telegraph ^ | 12 May 2009 | Daily Telegraph

Posted on 05/12/2009 6:52:00 PM PDT by GOPGuide

Women with brains have more fun in bed than the average bimbo, new research suggests.

A study of more than 2,000 female twins showed that those with greater emotional intelligence had larger numbers of orgasms.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor and manage feelings and emotions in oneself and others.

The findings suggest that low EI is a risk factor for female orgasmic disorder, one of the most common sexual problems suffered by women.

Up to 30 per cent of women find it difficult or impossible to reach a climax during sexual intercourse.

Professor Tim Spector, director of the Twin Research Department at King's College London and co-author of the study, said: "These findings show that emotional intelligence is an advantage in many aspects of your life including the bedroom. This study will help enormously in the development of behavioural and cognitive therapies to improve women's sexual lives."

A total of 2,035 female volunteers from the TwinsUK registry were recruited for the study, ranging in age from 18 to 83.

The registry consists of adult twins who have agreed to take part in studies to investigate the causes of common disorders. Using twins makes it possible to disentangle genetic and environmental risk factors.

All participants completed questionnaires giving details of their sexual behaviour and performance and also answered questions designed to test their emotional intelligence.

A significant association was found between EI and frequency of orgasm both during masturbation and sexual intercourse.

Women in the bottom 25 per cent of the emotional intelligence range had twice the normal risk of infrequent orgasm.

I guess she must be the bimbo since the objective is too far away from the stage for her to be able to see anything.

Women with brains probably have more fun out of bed than the average bimbo.

I barely even noted that she had a microscope.

I was too captivated by her beautiful eyes.

Very misleading. The headline talks about “intelligent women,” but the study didn’t actually do any intelligence testing.

Instead, it attempted to assess something called “emotional intelligence.”

Now there’s a valuable metric.

I have had the opportunity to test the entire spectrum and it is my biased opinion that women are women and some are better than others. There are white ones, there are yellow ones, there are brown ones and black ones they are all wonderful creations and they all ___ just the same.

*I have got to get one of those grants!*

They only give such grants to geniuses who figure out a way to get twins in bed at the same time, obviously, damn it. What a great chat-up line, though.
