(ORDO NEWS) — An anonymous survey showed that men who are prone to narcissistic sexual relationships have a harder time achieving orgasm and are more likely to experience problems with premature ejaculation.
Psychologists have found that men with pronounced narcissistic traits are prone to premature ejaculation and other problems in their sex life.
Their ability to achieve orgasm is highly dependent on external factors – for example, the “newness” of the partner.
Narcissism is one of the ” dark triad ” of personality traits, characterized by pride, narcissism, lack of empathy, an overestimated opinion of oneself and an underestimated opinion of others.
In its extreme form, it is expressed in narcissistic personality disorder , in which a person becomes completely absorbed in experiencing their own uniqueness and inability to show any empathy.
All these properties can be harmful and dangerous not only for others, but also for the narcissist himself. New evidence of this was received by a team of psychologists from the American University of Valparaiso.
Professor David Rowland (David Rowland) and his colleagues conducted a detailed survey of 1297 men aged 18 to 85 years.
An anonymous questionnaire included questions about social status and health status, sexual contacts over the past two years, as well as related experiences.
Based on the collected data, the scientists ranked the participants on the Hurlbert Index , which characterizes sexual narcissism – the willingness to manipulate a partner for their own pleasure, lack of interest in their needs, and at the same time an overestimated sense of one’s sexual prowess.
The participants in the experiment were divided into groups with low, moderate and severe sexual narcissism.
Comparing their answers, the psychologists found that men with high levels of narcissism had sex on average more often and gave it a greater role than the rest of the participants.
At the same time, their level of satisfaction with their sexual life turned out to be lower, and they more often preferred masturbation to connect with a real partner.
In addition, vivid narcissism was associated with more significant problems in sex. The survey showed that such men with great difficulty achieve orgasm and, moreover, more often suffer from premature ejaculation, faced with two diametrically opposite symptoms at the same time.
