‘Sex-Positivity’ leads to depressionMarch 20, 2008
This is small study with 107 (presumable heterosexual) women showing that women who are being sexed more often are more depressed than women who are being sexed less often.
Depressed women have more sex than those who are happier, regardless of whether they are in a relationship or not, a study of Australians has found.
A survey of Melbourne women presented at an international mental health conference has concluded that females who suffer from mild to moderate depression have a third more sexual activity than those who are not.
They also had more sexually liberated attitudes, a bigger variety of sexual experiences and, if single, were more likely to partake in casual sex, Dr Sabura Allen, a clinical psychologist at Monash University, said.
“It was more sex and more of everything from kissing to petting, foreplay and intercourse,” said Dr Allen, who studied the recent sexual experiences of 107 depressed and non-depressed women who were in relationships.
I found this interesting. So us ‘anti-sex’ prudes are happier than the women with ‘sexually liberated’ attitudes and behaviours. So much for ‘sex-positivity’.
