Millennials, please take note if you are about to own a car (or if your parents are gifting you one on New Year) as this can boost your sex life too. According to researchers, owning a car gives young adults higher self-esteem, making it a status symbol that women find attractive, and fall for them.
Having a car increased sexual desire and the probability of having action between the sheets, reported researchers from the University of Colima in Mexico.
Owning a car early in life “can act as a sexual enhancer in emerging adulthood. Women still demonstrate a clear preference for men that possess or show the potential to acquire material resources,” said study lead author David Soriano-Hernandez.
Having a car increased sexual desire and the probability of having sexual intercourse at a younger age, of having more sexual partners, and increase in the frequency of sexual activities.
According to the researchers, having their own cars gives young men higher self-esteem and is a status symbol women find attractive.
Those with a car typically had sex twice as often, and with double the number of partners.
One drawback was that they were engaged in unsafe sex, the researchers said.
A car also makes it easier to get to places for sex and can be used at public places too, it added. (IANS)
