Adequate sleep tied to women’s sexual function

By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) – – Sleeping longer one night corresponds with an increase in sexual desire and odds of intercourse the following day for women, according to a new survey-based study. “Aspects of sexual functioning, like desire and arousal, are influenced by many areas of our lives, such as mood, medical health, fatigue, stress and relationship factors,” said lead author David A. Kalmbach of the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. Kalmbach and his coauthors studied 171 female college students – who were not taking antidepressants, which can influence sexual function – for a two-week period. For the next two weeks, they completed online questionnaires first thing in the morning about their quality and quantity of sleep during the night and their sexual activity over the previous 24 hours.
