Modern women have 3 TIMES more sex dreams than 1970s ladies
Most of us think about sex at least once a day, it's a perfectly natural phenomenon that's an integral aspect of our lives.
Of course, it's important to acknowledge that asexuality exists too, and people with low sex drives for whatever reason, medical or not. So if you're not having erotic fantasies, don't fret.
One question is on our minds at this moment in time: How can we know what generation were the biggest fantasy-addicts of them all, though? That's easy: Science.
A new study has confirmed that modern women spend THREE TIMES as long dreaming about sex than the women of the 1970s.
The sexual revolution of the late 20th century and falling levels of shame around the taboo of sexuality are thought to be behind the latest spicy trend.
Researchers from the University of Freiburg in Germany asked 2,907 participants aged between 16 and 92-years-old about their sexy-time dreams, and the results are fascinating.
Women under 30 years of age claimed that one-fifth of their dreams were erotic, while for men in the same age group it was one-quarter.
A previous survey from 50 years ago discovered that women thought about sex during sleep only one-third as much as modern ladies.
The gap between genders has closed over time, which the journal Psychology & Sexuality puts down to the rise of feminism and an awareness of intersexuality, queer culture and communication.
The report stated: "One might speculate that younger women in modern society deal with sexuality more openly that older women of previous generations."
An erotic dream is defined as having "sexually motivated" activity, such as flirting and kissing. The scientists from the University of Freiburg in Germany also found that 83.8 percent of two sexes had experienced a wet dream.
Studies which took place back in 1966 and 1998 found less than four percent of women and 12 percent of men confessed to having sex dreams. Maybe they were just being coy?
The research didn't go into the type of sex dreams women were experiencing in the past and present, which would be interesting to dig into.
Dream away gals, it's a healthy part of your lifestyle and is proven to influence the development of your sexual preferences.
You're essentially carrying out important scientific experimentation in your own brain, right?
