New Study: Emotionally Smart Women Have Better Sex

A recent study suggests that women who score high in emotional intelligence — meaning they are good at expressing feelings and empathizing with others — have more fun in bed as well.

It makes sense. If you're in touch with your feelings, can suss out how your partner feels, and express what you want — sex will be better than if you're closed off, have no clue what another person is feeling, and lack communication skills.

Professor Tim Spector of King's College in London asked more than 2,000 female twins between the ages of 18 and 83 about their sex lives, including how they rated their ability to have an orgasm. They were also asked to fill out a questionnaire that determined to what degree they were emotionally intelligent, or flourished in self expression, empathy and contentment.

Emotional intelligence also makes it easier, researchers say, for women to fantasize about sex, which is always a good thing. I wonder, though, if it's important for men to have emotional intelligence to be good in bed or to enjoy themselves more? Something tells me they might have fun no matter what. . .
