Men Prioritise Sex Over Food

Sex is more important to men than food. It’s something we have long believed, but new research tells us that it is, in fact, true.

It’s all because of your man’s head. No, not that one. The way that a man’s brain is wired means that he is automatically programmed to favour passionate sex than a slap-up meal.

Given the choice

My man is quite a hefty guy, so he puts food pretty high on his priority list. However, that doesn’t stop him from trying to get some before we go out for a meal or to a party. I always thought it was because he was horny and I was usually in a very sexy dress. Now it has been confirmed… but why do men do this?

According to the research, scientists observed the habits of microscopic roundworms (C.elegans). If the roundworms were given a choice between food or sex, they would go to find a mate instead of looking around for food.

Genetic engineering

The scientists found that, no matter which roundworms they used, they all seemed to prioritise finding a mate over filling themselves up. Romantic in a way, but this is science, and the scientists wanted to know what would happen to some that had been genetically engineered to be hungry.

Unsurprisingly, the worms that were hungry were actually ten times less successful at finding a mate, because they did not wish to stray from the food source. So it seems that there is a fine line between a man’s desire for sex and food.

Unknown for females

While there are two sexes of the C.elegans roundworms, neither are female. There is the male, which was studied as described above, and a self-fertilising hermaphrodite. This means that how a woman responds to the choice between sex and food is still unknown.

What do the findings mean?

The lead author of the study said that “these findings point to basic biological mechanisms”. So, it isn’t that we are all vulgar for having a desire for sex but we are actually designed to want it.

Then again we knew this already.

One psychologist a long time ago listed both food and sex as two of the most important things we need in order to fulfil our basic needs and go on to be happy. So we’ve known for a long time that we need both food and sex in order to be content in our lives.

Food and sex

A lot of people love a night of passionate sex with a sexy lady before a fantastic meal. I know I do, but should we have to choose between them? Can’t we have both?

I have tried using food in the bedroom before with my hot man. He likes to try sexy games in the bedroom and one day he brought some strawberries and squirty cream in. It got really messy and has put me off using it again though he wants to. What food would you suggest? Do you like taking food into the bedroom?
