According to BusinessWeek, every 5 seconds someone purchases a romance book. For those more mathematically inclined that makes love novels a $1.2 billion dollar a year market. And it’s not surprising that.
Psychology Today states that women who read love books make love with their partners 74% more frequently than ladies who don’t. Because when females fantasize frequently, they have Athens sex more typically, have more fun in bed, and engage in a wider range of sensual activities. According to a clinical research study conducted by Harold Leitenberg of the The Journal of Sex Research and Psychological Bulletin.
Read stories for boosting your libido
Many therapists now go so far as to recommend reading steamy love stories to boost a female’s libido. Their reasoning: “taking part in satisfying activities such as walking with a partner, listening to music, having a glass of white wine, taking a bath, or reading a romance book can assist put women in the state of mind for sex. These activities can assist ladies shift into their “sex self” from their role as mom, partner, employer, or employee,” says Carol Rinkleib Ellison, PhD, a psychologist and author of Women’s Sexualities. Christiane Northrup, M.D. of Women’s Health Wisdom also states: “Consider checking out novels or leasing motion pictures which contain sexual content to assist you get in the mood.”
For those of us that delight in a steamy romance novel regularl this is not new news. We’ve been attempting to inform mainstream sayers this all along. We ladies are switched on by “emotional stimulation” the way men are aroused aesthetically. Though increasingly more love authors are favoring more sensual romance, women don’t constantly require graphic sex scenes to become aroused. After checking out a mentally extreme love scene, a lady feels more open to the “idea” of having sex or “in the mood” for sex.
Books sustain a woman’s sexual desire
Maria Veloso, author of Midwinter Turns to Spring states, “Contrary to popular belief, the capability of love books to sustain a woman’s sexual desire doesn’t lie in the stereotyped bodice,ripping, sexually explicit scenes so intrinsic in love books, but rather in the realm of emotions. When a female’s emotions are stirred by a love novel, that’s a dish for an emotional aphrodisiac.
Simply as males become excited while browsing nude publications, women promote their libido while checking out a rewarding love scene. Some critics of either men’s publication or steamy romance novels may doubt this activity as an acceptable alternate for couples in a dedicated relationship for improving a person’s sex life.
Women’s sex lives and the level of intimacy they have will reveal a noticeable improvement after reading a romance novel. That it basically them in a more romantic frame of mind. So what’s the link in between love novel and better sex lives? Emotional satisfaction.
