New research has found that two thirds of people slept better after having sex, but only if it involved an orgasm for both parties.
Adelaide sleep researcher Dr. Michele Lastella surveyed 460 adults between the ages of 18 and 70 — and he’s advising people to switch off her phones, and switch on their libidos.
He told Adelaide Now: “What we found was 64 percent of our respondents indicated they slept better when sex was with a partner and it involves an orgasm.”
“There’s strong evidence to suggest substituting screen time for play time,” he added.
“When you’re engaging in sex, you’re not thinking about what to do the next day, you’re not going through your phones. It distracts you.”
A similar study, done by Oxford Economics and the National Centre for Social Research, found that a combination of sex and a good night’s sleep had the biggest impact on well-being.
Researchers concluded: “Better sleep is the biggest single contributor to living better.”
Those who described themselves as happy were also more likely to be satisfied with their sex lives, and vice versa.
