This questions the similarities between people thinking of officially starting a relationship and just a one-night stand, as this difference or similarity may not be immediately obvious, to those directly involved.

Although sexual urges and emotional attachments are distinct feelings, evolutionary and social processes likely have made humans particularly prone to becoming romantically attached to partners to whom they are sexually attracted. This is according to a team of psychologists from the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and the University of Rochester’s Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology. They conclude that sexual desire may play a major role not only in attracting potential partners to each other, but also in encouraging the formation of an attachment between them.



“Sex may set the stage for deepening the emotional connection between strangers,” says the associate professor of psychology at the IDC Herzliya. “This holds true for both men and women. Sex motivates human beings to connect, regardless of gender.”

Some believe that men are more likely than women to initiate relationships when sexually aroused, but this pattern does not hold true: in fact, both men and women try to connect with potential partners when sexually aroused. The researchers demonstrate that sexual desire triggers behaviors that can promote emotional bonding during these encounters.

What then could explain the role of sex in fostering partnerships? Human sexual behavior evolved to ensure reproduction. Throughout human history, parents’ bonding greatly increased the children’s survival chances.

Neuroimaging research has shown that similar brain regions (the caudate, insula, and putamen) are activated when a person experiences either sexual desire or romantic love. The researchers surmise that this pattern hints at a neurological pathway that causes sexual activation to affect emotional bonding. They conclude that experiencing sexual desire between previously unacquainted strangers may help facilitate behaviors that cultivate personal closeness and bonding.

“Sexual desire may play a causally important role in the development of relationships.. It’s the magnetism that holds partners together long enough for an attachment bond to develop
They conclude that experiencing sexual desire between previously unacquainted strangers may help facilitate behaviors that cultivate personal closeness and bonding.

Sounds like a lot of BS. You cant figure out our primal sexual desires by putting a bunch of geeks in a lab .

Many people are after just sex with no attachment . There are observations that women with a higher number of sexual partners can have a harder time bonding with someone for a long lasting relationship compared to women with lower numbers of sexual partners.

Dont worry about these people who come here and scoff, they think they know it all, but have nothing of value to add . These are the types of people you meet in real life and they have nothing to talk about.

Well, I guess we just can't believe any of the "observations".


both men and women try to connect with potential partners when sexually aroused.

and

There are observations that women with a higher number of sexual partners can have a harder time bonding with someone for a long lasting relationship compared to women with lower numbers of sexual partners.


hmm...is the latter quote attempting to suggest that the higher number of sexual partners a man has had doesn't make it harder for them as well to bond with someone for a long lasting relationship compared to men with lower numbers of sexual partners? Or is this simply an "observation" attempting to shame women who have had just as many sexual partners as men? Or is it simply a given that men have a harder time bonding with someone for a long lasting relationship no matter how many sexual partners they've had? Or does it mean that men aren't affected psychologically/emotionally when it comes to bonding no matter the number of sexual partners they have had because they're somehow strictly mechanical beings?

Cookie cutter observations of either or both sexes is pretty meaningless, given the variables of psychological compositions and life experiences one has had, no matter the gender.
