Cuddling more important to men

This is a good report to critique.

Circular statements:
“”For them, an affectionate hubby leads to more sexual pleasure.”
“We have had ups and downs in our sexual relationship over the years, but I have to say that the times when we were having an active sex life was when I was happiest in our marriage.” When things are going well, couples will be more likely to be more active in their sex life.

The last statements contradict and be detached from the purpose of the article: “This study may also offer comfort to many men who think they’re the only ones whose wives or girlfriends aren’t always interested in sex.
Perhaps this will soothe some of the men in their thirties and forties who think that their situation of having a wife who is not all that enthusiastic about sex is unique,” said Zoldbrod.”

It does point out one of the study’s own weaknesses: “However, experts say sexual satisfaction is difficult to measure, and it could also be the case that study participants define it in different ways.” It is also cautious to make the international comparison significant.
