Young adults become quite rational while making sexual choices

Nearly all participants in the study made consistently rational choices, as defined by established models of psychological behaviour.

New York, Oct 17 : Contrary to how they are sometimes portrayed in the media, young adults tend to make highly rational decisions when it comes to selecting potential romantic partners.

Young adults appear to consider both the risks and benefits of their sexual behaviour in a highly consistent and thoughtful manner, said the study published in the journal Psychological Science.

“There is a tendency to view sexual decision making in young adults as a highly variable and somewhat random process, more influenced by hormones or impulsivity than rational processes,” said lead author of the study Laura Hatz, a doctoral candidate at the University of Missouri in the US.

“Our study suggests, however, that young adults are highly consistent in their choices, balancing potential partners’ level of attractiveness against the potential risk for sexually transmitted infection.”

The research involved presenting 257 participants with hypothetical “sexual gambles” in which a photo of a potential partner’s face was shown alongside an associated, though purely hypothetical, risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection.

Nearly all participants in the study made consistently rational choices, as defined by established models of psychological behaviour.

Prior research has shown that, in general, individuals tend to use what are known as heuristic decision strategies — cognitive shortcuts that may ignore some information — to make choices in life.

Hatz and her colleagues found that even individuals who could be identified as classic heuristic decision makers for monetary-based choices became rational decision makers when similar choices were framed as sexual choices.

Mumbai, Oct 18 : Irked by the attitude of actress Rubina Diliak, superstar Salman Khan will be seen asking her to leave the house in an upcoming episode.

In the promo, it is seen that the contestants are given a task to perform by Bigg Boss, which Rubina refuses to participate, saying it is against her self-respect.

“Main iss prakriya ka part nahi hoon. I am not a bin of garbage. Ab hamare ghar ke mukhya bol rahe hai ki tumhaare dimaag mein kachra hai. Mujhe uss cheez se problem hai. (I am not a part of this task. I am not a bin of garbage. Now the head of the house is saying that you have garbage in your brain. I have a problem with that),” she is seen saying in the clip.

Later, Salman is seen reprimanding Rubina in the weekend episode.

“Rubina aapka point unacceptable hai. Bigg Boss ke rules se aapko aapatti hai. (Rubina, your point is unacceptable. You have problems with Bigg Boss rules),” Salman said, and asked her what is she doing on the show when she doesn’t want to participate in the task.

When Rubina asked if she can put her across her point, he said that she is wrong. Then, Rubina said that she found it insulting, to which Salman said, “Apmaan toh abhi tak hua he nahi tha. (Noone insulted anyone)”

Rubina told Salman that she didn’t know she would be reprimanded for her point of view to which Salman replied that he is talking with respect.

“Yeh galat hai aur yehi aapko bhaari padne wala hai. (You are wrong, and it will work against you),” he said.

In the preview, he is also seen asking her to pack her bags and leave. It will be interesting to see if Rubina leaves the house, or the matter gets sorted.

Bigg Boss 14 contestant Sara Gurpal was evicted from the show on Monday’s episode. While many viewers and her fans disagree with her eviction, it has also been reported that she was also hurt by Nikki during a task. Now VJ Andy of Bigg Boss 7 fame has also called Sara’s eviction a wrong decision and has questioned the seniors, specially Gauahar Khan and Hina Khan for making such a choice.

Sharing his views on Twitter, Andy said that he was very sad as Sara “could’ve developed into a very good housemate” and added that she did much more than Jaan and Nishant. Andy wrote in another tweet, “It’s so unfair that @SaraGurpals is the first Evicted @BiggBoss housemate. When will it be ok to be a good human? I think #NishantMalkani or #JaanKumarSanu should’ve gone!”

Andy also questioned Gauahar and Hina for agreeing to Sidharth Shukla’s decision to evict Sara. He tweeted, “Im lil shocked that @GAUAHAR_KHAN & @eyehinakhan such Strong powerful righteous women would agree with @sidharth_shukla. @SaraGurpals deserves better!”

Sara was recently dragged into a controversy when a person named Tushar Kumar had claimed in a news report that he was married to Sara before the two went their separate ways. He had even claimed that her real name was Rachna Devi and she had walked out of their marriage to choose fame over personal life.

Meanwhile, Sara’s fans have strongly opposed her eviction and have been slamming Sidharth for such a decision. A fan wrote, “#saragurupal didn’t deserve this worst decision ever to eliminate #SaraGurpal @[email protected] sidharth is ruthles.” Another said that Bigg Boss 14 continues to be only about Sidharth and presented several developments on the show which may have been ignored by the makers and the viewers. The user tweeted, “#NikkiTamboli Ko Save Kyu Kia se #SaraGurpal ko Save Kyu Nai kia tak ka Safar. Again,No one is talking about -Nominations, Ejaz & Jaan’s argument, Abhinav & Rahul’s Argument, Pavitra & Ejaz’s Chemistry, Jas’s POV, Newly Formed Groups. It’s all about #SidharthShukla.”

A viewer even came up with an explanation that Sara may have been evicted due to the controversy regarding her marriage. He tweeted, “I guess #SaraGurpal eviction was pre planned based on her marriage controversy. So In WKV salman ignored Sara. Yesterday, #SidharthShukla came from somewhere else, may be Confession room & Put her name. Gauhar & #HinaKhan agreedFlushed face. It wasn’t seniors fault!.”
