Feminists are better in bed

// 16 October 2007

Of course we knew that already. But an article has just been published in the most recent issue of the academic journal ‘Sex Roles’ which has studied the impact of feminism in relationships and the extent to which sexual stereotypes about feminist hold up.

The study found that men who have feminist partners “reported more stable relationships and greater sexual satisfaction”.

Their results challenge the prevailing orthodoxy that romance and feminism don’t mix.

Hoorah for not being portrayed as the dowdy, over-serious angry ones for once! You can read the full article here, although you may need an academic log in. If you’re not able to access it, you can read the synopsis here.
