According to newly surfaced research, individuals who believe that men should dominate women in the bedroom could be more uneasy about sex and less likely to feel comfortable taking free female condoms that could reduce the odds of receiving unfortunate results from STD testing.
Researchers from Yale University asked 500 undergraduates from Northeastern University to fill out a survey on a computer near a bowl of free female condoms. After the results were compiled, it was determined that the more the study participants felt patriarchal gender roles should be adhered to, the more they agreed with the notion that men should be dominant during heterosexual sex. These two notions also correlated to subjects reporting feeling uncomfortable in sexual situations, and being less likely to consider using female condoms that could prevent diseases detectable by STD testing.
"'Female condom? That sounds a little, you know…'" said a bunch of dudes taking this survey," commented humorist Luke O'Neil for Bullett Media.
Meanwhile, The Huffington Post put together a list of things people can do to improve their sex lives. The news source recommended experimenting with unfamiliar locations, erotica literature and common household items that could be used as accessories.
