Are Men Satisfied with Casual Sex?

New research is showing that men who are more careful and cautious sexually are actually more satisfied. We have some information about what drives men to have sex and how likely men are to engage in sex, but it is less clear what satisfies them.

 

For example, we know that men and women are different in what motivates them to have sex. Men are generally more physical in their motivation, while women desire sex for emotional reasons. We also know that men are generally more promiscuous than women. That is, men are generally more permissive than women when it comes to deciding about a first sexual encounter.

 

It is harder for researchers to tease apart what actually makes men and women sexually satisfied. Men and women are about the same when it comes to how sexually satisfied they are overall, but the factors that cause this satisfaction appear to be different. For example, men seem to be more sexually satisfied when they are satisfied with the relationship overall. This finding may surprise some, who feel that men’s sexual satisfaction depends entirely on frequency and variety.

 

So how does all this work when there is no relationship? What about casual sex?

 

Two American researchers recently looked at what motivates casual sex. Specifically, they looked at physical motivators (e.g., pleasure, partner attractiveness, etc.), goal-oriented motivators (e.g., using sex to gain social status), and sexual satisfaction. They wanted to see what motivated each gender to have casual sex and how this interacted with sexual satisfaction.

 

Physical Attraction

For men and women who were motivated to have sex for physical reasons like pleasure, it seems that casual sex was associated with lower sexual satisfaction. Put another way, men who were more careful or restrictive in their sexual encounters were happier with their sex life. This was even true for men who had really high sex drives. Satisfying sex came when they didn’t jump into bed with every woman who offered. Again, this is surprising given our culture’s view of how men are satisfied sexually.

 

Goal-Oriented Sex

Men have sex for more reasons than just pleasure or attraction. Men sometimes have sex because it gives them a feeling of accomplishing something. For example, they may feel like they have proven their masculinity or gained social standing. They may be proving themselves to others or just to themselves. Having sex for reasons like this was termed “goal-oriented” sex in the research.

 

Even for these men, who were more goal-oriented in their sexuality, sexual satisfaction came from being less permissive. When these men were cautious in their choice of partners they were usually more sexually satisfied.

 

On the flip side, the sexually goal-oriented men who were seeking out lots of partners were actually sexually unsatisfied. The authors speculated that when a sexually goal-oriented man is seeking out lots of sexual partners it is a sign that he isn’t performing well sexually. They suggested that unsatisfying sex is really threatening for guys like this. The whole point of sex was to prove themselves sexually so unsatisfying sex is considered a failure. After they have an experience that they consider a sexual “failure” these men quickly move on to the next woman to get another chance to prove themselves sexually.

 

So it seems that men who are very promiscuous generally are not very satisfied sexually. Having a fling may even be a sign that performance is an issue and seeking out casual sex is a way to shore-up up shaky sexual confidence. Even though our culture does see men this way, relationship is important for men to feel sexually satisfied. It may be tempting to go out for that quick sexual experience, but working on a fulfilling relationship is the path to sex that satisfies. It can be challening to identify these kinds of issues in your own life, but fostering self-awareness by working with caring therapists can make a huge difference in understanding and overcoming these challenges.

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum feels wonderful on my skin. This product contains retinol, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum http://fave.co/2dxtQw6

As with their other products the scent on this is minimal. The scent is a bit sweet, but not overwhelming. This product is supposed to help with fine lines, wrinkles, condition skin, and improve skin tone, among other things. I wish that I could say this is a miracle product, but I can't in good consciousness do that. I can say, however, that I love the way my skin feels after using this.

I have only been using it for a week and while I do notice my skin looks healthier, I can't say that it has helped with the fine lines as of yet. After using this, my skin is very soft and in conjunction with a toner, face cleanser, and moisturizer, I do have high hopes for this regimen of face care. I will keep you updated on how well it is working.

If you have any questions about this product, you can leave me a comment or go to the company directly for answers.

So far, I really love the product this company makes. Valentia uses natural and organic ingredients for their skin care line, which I love. The scent of this product is nice. It's not overly strong and feels wonderful on my skin.

Derma-E

Derma-E has changed their packaging for their products. In my opinion, I love the look of the new packaging, but you can decide for yourself on this one.

dermae http://dermae.com/

The original packaging is on the left and the new packaging is on the right. I think the new packaging just looks cleaner. You'll have to let me know what you think on this one.

The products are still the same GMO free, 100% Vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, and soy free products that you love. They only changed the packaging. In working this year toward a more green lifestyle, this product fits right in there.

The scent of both the day and night cream is amazing! It's a light, clean scent that is just wonderful. I love that the scent is not strong because I have never been one to wear anything with a strong scent. So these are perfect!

dermae http://dermae.com/

After applying them I love the way my skin feels. So soft. I wish that I could tell you that it will help with fine lines, but I haven't been using it long enough to notice a difference yet, but the way my skin feels is reason enough for me to continue using this one.

You can learn more about this company on their website: Company Website. The products are available there as well. If you would rather go to the store to get them, they are available at Target, Whole Foods, and Sprout's, just to name a few places. I think you will love this product too.

Have a great day!

Do you know someone who plays guitar? Christmas is just around the corner. Maybe this will be the perfect gift you are looking for. The Pig Nose Amplifier is a small, light amplifier that seems to be well liked among those who play guitar.

The pig nose has a pig snout for the on/off switch which is kinda neat. In looking at the website, it appears that most of the reviews are good which would say this is a good product.

Disk Drill 3

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of New Disk Drill 3 for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I remember a few years ago I lost a paper from my computer. It was just gone! I took it to several places to try to get it back with no luck. I had to rewrite the whole paper in about 3 hours. What a mess! 

Had this program been available (or if it was, had I known about it), it would have been a lifesaver for me. This new release is for the MAC operating system and they have made it easier to use.

Now, I don't really understand how all this works as technology generally runs away from me, but the new features on this release are going to make it easier to recover lost files or just about anything else on your computer that you may have gotten rid of by accident.

They now have iOS recovery for IPhone and IPad. They have a data recovery for Android devices too. This program can help to recover lost partitions (which my husband is dealing with at the moment). It has a duplicate finder which can help to free up disk space. And much, much more.

You can find Disk Drill 3 here: Disk Drill 3

They even have a free version for the Windows operating system.

Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

Valentia uses natural and organic ingredients in this moisturizer because that is what their customers asked for the most. This product is toxin-free and paraben-free.

Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

This product has a light floral type scent to it that is in no way overpowering. The cream feels great on my skin and I love how it makes my face feel after use. As for helping with fine lines or wrinkles, I haven't seen an improvement yet, but I have only been using it for a week. I will update this post at a later time with results on that end. But so far, I am very happy with this moisturizer.

This brand is committed to using natural and organic ingredients that will help to heal and protect your skin. I adore this about the company. It's important to use natural ingredients on your skin because this is the only skin we have. We need to take care of it and protect it as best as we can. Toxins cause damage, even though most companies that use them claim they help.

Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

All in all, I really like this moisturizer. Not only because of the natural ingredients but because I love the way my face feels after using it.

Ark Skincare System

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Ark Skincare to try out their age-specific skincare line. The brand is made in England and targets specific age ranges to help protect and nourish skin.

Ark skincare  http://arkskincareusa.com

I was given the opportunity to try the Skin Perfector Hydration Injection Masque and Age Defend Replenishing Moisturiser. The first thing I noticed about this product was the scent. It's not overpowering but light and kind of sweet smelling. So it's not a bad scent at all.

The hydration injection masque is only used a few times a week, whereas the moisturiser is used twice daily. The hydration masque is applied after cleansing and left on for a specific amount of time, depending on your age. For my age, it was left on for about 10 minutes.

After the time is up, using a hot cloth you remove the hydration masque and pat dry. Then you would continue with your skincare routine ending with the moisturiser which you simply apply to your face. After using this my face was very soft. I haven't noticed a difference as of yet for fine lines, but I've only been using it for a short time.

Ark Skincare  http://arkskincareusa.com

I think the only thing I don't like about this is that the moisturiser doesn't have sunscreen in it. Of course, it's easy enough to add that afterward so this is really not a big issue. I love that this brand uses an age-targeted formula for different ages because we know that what the skin needs in your twenties is not the same as what your skin needs in your forties or fifties.

If you would like more information on this skin care brand the website is ARK Skincare

Have a great day!

Baking Bundle from Chefs Limited

*This is a sponsored Post for Baking Bundle from Chefs Limited*

Baking Bundle http://amzn.to/29kRTLb

I got this baking bundle in the mail a couple weeks ago and decided to use it for Peanut Butter Cookies (recipe to come later). I had not used a silicone baking mat before so this was a first and now I think I am hooked! The cookies didn't stick to the mat even without grease.

Baking Bundle http://amzn.to/29kRTLb

You can see above there is no cookie stuck to the mat! None! Even after 3 sets going into the oven they didn't stick. I have had problems with cookies sticking all the time. Never have I had a time where at least a few didn't stick to the pan, until now.

Baking Bundle from Amazonhttp://amzn.to/29kRTLb

These Baking Bundles are for sale on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BE4YU1K from Chefs Limited. The bundle comes with the cookie sheet (which by the way is non-stick too), the silicone mat, and a silicone mitt to take this out of the oven with.

Baking Bundle http://amzn.to/29kRTLb

Baking Mitt

I have to admit I was a bit scared to use the mitt to take the cookie sheet out of the oven. I have to say it does work. I could feel the heat of the cookie sheet through the mitt, but it was not a burning heat. In other words, I was able to use the mitt taking the cookie sheet out of the oven. I didn't get burned by touching the cookie sheet with the mitt.

The mitt is a bit big for me, but then again I have really small hands. So for most they should be a comfortable fit. I have also place a video on YouTube of my review on this Baking Bundle from Chefs Limited. If you would like to see it you can find the video here. It's only a couple minutes long. But I would love for you to see it and let me know what you think.

Have a great day!

Screenshot_5

 This is the first screen you will see when you bring up the Zedity plugin. This interface is so easy to use. You can place the pictures and the text exactly where you want it without having to use any coding. Once your post is the way you want it, you save it and then add your categories and tags and then just post. This system is so easy to use. There is a free edition, but I believe to get all the bells and whistles, you have to buy the premium version. Seeing as I am able to try to premium version, I am unsure what is or is not included with the free version. However, if you are looking for a way to make your posts the way you want them to look without knowing any code, this may be the way to go.
