Experts say that it is natural to have sex on mind, even if they deny it strongly. How bad is having sex on mind? There may be many good sides, but some bad sides too.
A new research has found that with sex in our minds, we tend to be less truthful or precisely we choose to pretend, tilting our honesty barometer.
The research was done by the University of Rochester and the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. It said people tend to adapt truth with a view to impressing and winning the heart of the potential partner.
When people become interested in a potential sexual partner, they do their best to get that person interested in them, and this process may not be entirely conscious, it says.
While having sex on mind, people will want to `play nice’ towards the potential partner. They want to position themselves in the best light possible.
Profs Gurit Birnbaum and Harry Reis, who led the research, says that we tend to be a little less honest about ourselves when we have sex on our minds, in a bid to create the best possible image when interacting with potential partners.
“When your sexual system is activated, you are motivated to present yourself in the best light possible. That means you’ll tell a stranger things that make you look better than you really are,” the study said.
