Want To Boost Satisfaction? Some Survey-Based Suggestions

online_survey.pngOne of the most sought after outcomes in romantic relationships is satisfaction. Sexual satisfaction, relationship satisfaction, overall satisfaction...it is all desired. So how do we boost our chances of being sexually and relationally satisfied?

Since the majority of the research I do involves figuring out ways to maintain or promote couple's well-being, a lot of my research focuses in on this concept of satisfaction. With all of the surveys we conduct here at Good in Bed, I am always sure to incorporate a measure of satisfaction. Therefore, I'd like to take this opportunity to outline some of the findings from each of our surveys in ways that can be applied for increasing satisfaction in relationships.

Here are four ways to try and improve the satisfaction in your relationship, based on our survey findings:

1. Combat Boredom
In our survey of 3,341 individuals who were in a relationship at the time of data collection (1,418 men and 1,923 women), we assessed relationship boredom and how that might impact sexual and relationship dynamics.

2. Boost Sexual Adventure
In our survey of 3,100 individuals (1,731 men and 1,369 women), we assessed sexual adventurousness as related to satisfaction and relationship dynamics.
3. Embrace Holidays
In our survey of 2,167 individuals who were in a relationship at the time of data collection (1,262 men and 905 women), we examined the ways in which holidays impact sex and relationships.
4. Schedule Date-Nights
In our survey of 2,556 individuals who were in a relationship at the time of data collection (1,393 men and 1,163 women), we asked participants how they factor dates with their partner into their busy lifestyles. We also examined how date-night impacts their relationship and sexual dynamics.

With all of these factors being significantly associated with satisfaction in fairly large samples of men and women, give one or two a try sometime. Also feel free to read the full reports of the Boredom Survey, Sexual Adventurousness Survey, Holiday Survey, and Date-Night Survey to get more ideas of how to apply our data to your sex lives.
