The moans of manipulation
A good number of women moan when they're having sex, especially considering how quiet your average guy is when doing the dirty. While it seems to be taken for granted that females are making noises to vocalize their pleasure, researchers recently conducted a modestly sized study to better figure out what was behind all those noises – and they were surprised at what they found.
In fact, it seems that the moans from women may not be so much an expression of their own pleasure as an incentive for men to do their job better. The participants in the research moaned the most before their climax or during a partner's.
"These data together clearly demonstrate a dissociation of the timing of women experiencing orgasm and making copulatory vocalizations and indicate that there is at least an element of these responses that are under conscious control, providing women with an opportunity to manipulate male behaviour to their advantage," the researchers wrote, according to ANI.
Still, the fact that these moans are at least partially a way to manipulate a partner raises other questions. In one way, it seems like common sense that women would moan louder before their orgasm, because the noises could help a guy figure what he's doing right – and keep doing it, all the way to the finish line.
Dr. John Grohol speculates that females may be conforming to an "idealized sexual script" that mandates moans, the news source reports. He also believes that these bedroom noises are meant to help a man achieve orgasm.
Whatever the case, the bottom line is that, if there's moaning in the bedroom, someone feels good. Partners who are looking to keep the moaning going until the wee hours in the morning may want to consider LifeStyles™ warming lubricant, which provides a smooth, tingling and unforgettable experience.
