Men act less interested in sex than they really are

London, April 13: Men sometimes act way less interested in sex than they really are, perhaps because of the assumption that giving an impression of wanting to have sex with anyone, anytime, is definitely not what most women are looking for, suggests new research.

“Men who are overly eager do not come across as attractive,” said study co-author Leif Edward Ottesen Kennair, Professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

The findings published in the journal Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences suggest men and women’s real intentions may be different from the signals they send each other.

For the study, researchers collected two rounds of data from students at NTNU. The survey included questions like when they last met with a potential sexual partner, and whether they eventually ended up having sex.

Researchers found women were much more likely to have sex if they thought the potential partner was attractive.

The most important factor in whether men had sex was how many sexual partners they have had previously. This could contribute to their being perceived as sexually attractive and available.

“It’s really the same reason for both men and women — the man’s sex appeal — that decides whether they end up having sex,” Kennair said.

Men who reported being the most interested in having sex reduced their signals of interest more. Women, on the other hand, might pretend to be a little more interested than they actually are. “We think this may be to keep the man’s attention a little longer,” Kennair said.

Or perhaps the strategy gives her more opportunity to assess the quality of the guy.

As long as the woman does not seem to be excluding the possibility of sex, men across the board are willing to spend time with her — and enabling her to check out whether he is a good choice.

“The exception to this general sex difference is when the woman is as interested as the man. In this case, women also pretend to show less interest,” Kennair said.

“Both men and women who are truly interested in a partner might be trying to ‘play it cool.’ In economic terms, it’s about supply and demand.

New Delhi, Feb 21 : Congress leader and self-proclaimed ‘Shiv bhakt’ Rahul Gandhi on Friday extended greetings to the nation on the occasion of Mahashivaratri.

“Hearty greetings to all the countrymen on the auspicious occasion of Mahashivaratri,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted and also attached a picture of revered Mount Kailash with it.

The 49-year-old leader appears to be continuing the projection of ‘soft Hindutva’ through such tweets.

A few years ago, he called himself a “Shiv Bhakt” and went around visiting temples, including the famed Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain. In 2018, he also undertook Kailash Mansarovar Yatra to seek blessings of Lord Shiva.

London, Feb 19 : Singer Billie Eilish broke down at the 2020 BRIT Awards after admitting social media trolls had made her “feel hated”.

The American singer got the award on Tuesday evening for Best International Female Artist from Spice Girl Mel C, after performing new James Bond theme “No Time To Die live” for the first time, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Billie told the star-studded audience at London’s O2 Arena: “I wanted to say something that I was thinking like two seconds ago… I’ve felt very hated recently.”

Struggling to compose herself, she added: “And when I was on the stage and I saw you guys smiling at me, it genuinely made me want to cry, and I want to cry right now, so thank you.”

The award comes after she discussed her recent decision to take a step back from social media, and specifically stop reading the comments on her Instagram posts.

She had told BBC Breakfast: “I stopped like two days ago. I’ve stopped reading comments fully. It was ruining my life. It’s weird. The cooler the things you get to do, the more people hate you.”

“Cancel culture is insane. The internet is a bunch of trolls and the problem is a lot of it is really funny. It’s anything for a joke. People say anything to make people laugh.”

“It’s insane that I have ever been reading comments. I should’ve stopped long ago but the problem is I’ve always wanted to stay in touch with my fans and people have ruined that for me and for them. That s**ks.”

“I still try to like fan posts. If I see fans anywhere I just want to talk to them. They’re people, they’re me. They’re like friends of mine, but the internet is ruining my life, so I turned it off,” she added.

The Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter and her producer and co-writer brother Finneas O’Connell had also revealed about the creative process behind the James Bond track. Finneas had explained that Bond star Daniel Craig is involved in every aspect of their movie franchise, including the theme song.

“He had to like it. If Daniel doesn’t like it then you don’t get the job,” he said while Billie added: “He has a big say in it. We learned that from this. He’s really involved. We haven’t met him but he’s got to like it before they move on.”
