There’s something about sex that makes people take decisions that are not good for them.
People have been known to remain in bad, toxic relationships for longer than necessary because of the great sex they’re getting from a partner.
When it is obvious that a relationship no longer holds happiness and all other positive things people crave, when it is obvious that the logical thing to do is to get out and seek happiness else where; both men and women have been known to remain attached to the toxicity of existing affairs simply because of the impressiveness of the sex they’re getting from that bad boo.
Apparently, it’s something about sex and its ability to make people take stupid steps and make moronic decisions.
Why sex makes you misbehave
Canadian scientists carried out a research on this subject and published their findings in the Archives of Sexual Behavior in 2016.
In essence, they arrived at the conclusion that, the need for sex momentarily robs people of common sense because when you are horny, you get something known as ‘tunnel vision.’
In this context, tunnel vision makes you think of nothing else in that moment but how to release that sexual tension.
It won’t matter at that time that you’ll need to make a poor decision to get laid, all that’ll matter is to just get it one way or another – just ask Cardi B who returned to her cheating husband just to get some.
When you gotta go, you really gotta go.
Although this is not stated in the study, it is logical that when people have a sexual urge, they’d rather have it satisfied in the most mindblowing way possible. What this results in is a possible refusal to let go of a partner who satisfies their sexual needs fantastically only to deprive them of all other forms of happiness, excitement and satisfaction that relationships are known to provide.
One other reason why good sex may make people remain connected to people they should be severing ties with is the unfounded-by-empirical-evidence concept known as ‘Okafor’s Law.’
What Okafor’s Law means in essence is that: if you sleep with someone once and you screw them properly, they somehow become too weak to say no to you from that moment onwards. This Pulse article here explains the concept better.
