Virgins Have More Fun… And Happiness Comes From Having Only A Few Sexual Partners In A Lifetime

Did you know virgins have more fun? Yeah… just like Blonds.

Virgins are having so much fun that more young people are opting to hang on to their virginity.  A 2011 study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  reported  the percent of Americans between the ages of 15 – 24 who were virgins increased from 22 percent to 28 percent between 2002 – 2008.

And, that’s not all. Did you know that limiting yourself to just a few sexual partners over your lifetime could keep you  emotionally stable? Like cause you to be happier? The book Premarital Sex In America written by two sociologists finds a link between sexual restraint and emotional well-being – between monogamy and happiness. The authors also find a link between having “lots” of sexual partners and depression. Especially if you’re a woman.

Where is all of this coming from? New York Times (NYT) Op-ed columnist Ross Douthat who reviewed these studies in his column Why Monogamy Matters. He summed it all up stating “the happiest women were those with a current sexual partner and only one or two partners in their lifetime. Virgins were almost as happy, though not quite, and then a young woman’s likelihood of depression rose steadily as her number of partners climbed and the present stability of her sex life diminished.”

Ross might have a political agenda with all this but SuzyKnew’s agenda is maximizing your sexual pleasure and health.

Think about it!

And keep it sexy…
