Couples who are more vocal in the bedroom have traditionally been regarded as exhibitionists.
But research now suggests they really do have better sex.
For British researchers have discovered there is a direct correlation between expressing enjoyment and enhanced pleasure.
Couples who are more vocal in the bedroom really do experience more pleasure
Women, in particular, respond well to their partner audibly expressing
enjoyment, the researchers at the University of Leeds found.
It's thought they achieve higher sexual satisfaction because they are
reassured that they are performing well and their efforts are being
Men, on the other hand, enjoy sex more if their lover is noisy, it is claimed.
The researchers got 71 women to report on the noises they make during sex.
The women reported making the most noise just before and during their
partner’s orgasm – suggesting this was a deliberate action.
Almost two-thirds of women said they intentionally made more noise to
help their partner finish.
Their research, published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, found that '92 per cent of participants felt very strongly that these vocalisations boosted their partners’ self-esteem – and 87 per cent reported using them for this purpose.'
Noise alert: In a recent poll, 94 per cent of women admitted making more noise in the bedroom than their partner
And a women now claim to be noisier in the bedroom than men, according to a recent poll of more than 1,000 people by the sex toy retailer Lovehoney.co.uk.
Almost all the women questioned (94 per cent) admitted making more noise than their partner. Seven out of ten men also said women were louder.
One explanation for why women are noisier is because their orgasms are
The bundle of nerves on a woman's clitoris is much larger than it is
near the man’s penis – giving women added pleasure when they orgasm.
Sex expert Tracey Cox argued that women may feel pressured to make
more noise to show they are enjoying themselves.
She said: 'One theory might be that since women fake it more often than men do, perhaps they feel obliged to provide “evidence” that they're enjoying themselves'
But Ms Cox was sceptical that more noise equals better sex, despite the research.
She added: 'I found it interesting women came up as “noisier”. There's no scientific explanation of why one sex is noisier in bed.
'It tends to be an individual thing. Some people scream the house down
at a concert, others watch without making a sound. It doesn't mean
they're not enjoying it as much!'
