Sleeping with Women “Reduces Intelligence”


Research suggests men who sleep with women suffer impaired mental performance and increased stress.

The Austrian researchers analysed the sleep patterns of young couples, comparing their sleep and after sleep performance when sleeping alone versus sleeping together with their partner.

Comparing 10 nights in each configuration for each of the couples, they found men suffered increased stress levels and exhibited poorer cognitive test performance when they had not slept alone, an effect observed irrespective of whether the couple had sex together.

Women are also said to have had their sleep and performance impaired by sleeping with their partner, though to a much lesser extent than with men.

As usual with such headline grabbing research, the study is vulnerable to scientific criticism on a variety of grounds, the most crucial being a small sample size and failure to consider confounding variables such as differences in sleeping habits between couples.

A researcher responsible bizarrely suggests communal sleeping is unnatural:

“It’s not surprising that people are disturbed by sleeping together.

Historically, we have never been meant to sleep in the same bed as each other. It is a bizarre thing to do.

Sleep is the most selfish thing you can do and it’s vital for good physical and mental health.

Sharing the bed space with someone who is making noises and who you have to fight with for the duvet is not sensible.

If you are happy sleeping together that’s great, but if not there is no shame in separate beds.”

Doubtless he would be fascinated to hear that the Japanese have developed the perfect solution to having to share a bed with an unruly ape, which both preserves restful slumber and provides men with the illusion of a loving partner.

    Sleeping with women reduces intelligence? Bullshit. Everyone knows that it's higher intelligence that reduces the chance you'll be sleeping with a woman. Women like 'em big and stupid. Easier to control.

    Women love money and power, being smart helps you get that.

    Yes, it does. You just refuse to open your eyes and see it.

    Ask yourself this: how exciting is it to have everything you've ever wished for?

    I don't claim to be the perfect gentleman, but I can tell you from experience... women really only think they want the whole package. When push comes to shove, they will take it for granted on a dime. Even Mimi here, though we were never officially a couple, couldn't stand matching wits with me.

    women and men alike love power.until high school "tough guys" always have broad friendships and stupid chicks around them.
    As people grow their expectations grow, but they see how little physical strength can accomplish compared to money,thus their focus shifts.

    as a note: why is it that people are impressed if a 7ft guy were to behave nicely and not impressed when a loser behaves nicely?

    Only up to a certain point. After you get over a certain the intelligence=happiness ratio becomes quite favorable, since you can shape the reality to your pleasure.

    This is a ridiculous. Sleeping with a woman doesn't mean it's reducing your intelligence, it's what you experience with your loved one by not only having sex, but getting to know her well.

    The stress comes from the mind subconsciously thinking that the woman will get up steal you cash then pretend nothing ever happened in the morning.

    And a hell of a lot of them will do that.... but then again, so will some men that women sleep with, so I guess it balances out in the end.

    The PROBLEM is that it is SO FUCKING HARD to tell which men and women will do that to you before they do it.

    No, sleeping with woman does NOT reduce intelligence.... what reduces intelligence is our conservative sexual morality that allows men to be lead around 'by the cajones', as they say.

    Great, so this research supports men sleeping with other men, which also denies women of sleeping with men, which means women will sleep with other women instead, which means NO SEX, which means no BABIES. Which means, no gundam.

    WTF man. I'd rather sleep with more women and be stupid than going all out for my studies. They haven't been going better, so who cares if sleeping with women makes you dumb

    Big-breasted women = Intelligent
    Having sex with women = Heart attack chances lower
    Sleeping with women = Makes you dumb

    So if you have sex and sleep with a women with big boobs, what the fuck are you?

    That's because men stay awake to watch the beautiful face of the girl sleeping next to them.

    Apparently, these 'scientists' or 'researchers' are a bunch of assholes who'd rather sleep alone.

    Hmm, about 200-300 years ago people used to sleep alone (of course if they had conditions for it), even our ancestors 2000 years ago slept alone, they were sleeping together only when they had sex, so its completely normal to sleep alone. Sleeping together evolved because in years after WW2 they had little money and space too, so they got used to it. And also because of communism, they put even big families in little flats, so they had no other option...

    Actually i'd personally say that i wouldn't want to ever have to sleep if given the choice due to how much time it wastes, so i'd think that less selfish and more an involuntary action...

    They are right you know - women suck all your life force out of you and they leave you with nothing: no money, no house only with debts and eventually kids.

    Not all women will do that.... and if they would get sane and repeal the 'make the father pay for the kid that the women got even though she told him she was on birth control' laws and make the stupid bitches RAISE THE CHILDREN ALONE......... that wouldn't happen at all.

    You sound like a woman hater who has been burned because he is stupid enough to get involved with the wrong women.
