As women we pride ourselves as mysterious beings and our ability to flirt... discreetly! Whether it’s a batter of an eyelash or a subtle smile – we’ve basically got the innuendo down pat. However a new study has found our sexual past may be a little easier to figure out – apparently it’s in… our walk!
Yup, that's right. The claim is the more energetic and 'free' a woman's walk is, the more orgasms she's had. A 'stiff' walk on the other hand (yep you guessed it) suggests she may show more restrain in the bedroom. This is rocket science stuff. Surely not, you ask in dismay! Just how does this apply on a Saturday night when you're struggling to put one foot in front of the other in your pretty new Steve Madden pumps, you ponder? Well, the study which was conducted in Belgium saw a group of women complete a questionnaire on their sexual behavior and were then observed from a distance while walking in a public space. Their movements were then analysed by two professors of sexology and two research assistants - who obviously were not aware of each woman's orgasmic history. The report was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and concluded "a woman's experience of vaginal orgasm may be discerned from a gait that comprises fluidity, energy, sensuality, freedom, and absence of both flaccid and locked muscles." In common terms - the more jiggy-jig a girl's getting the more physically and mentally energised she is.
It also found that women who have more orgasms have higher levels of self-esteem and felt more positive about life in general. We obviously could have told you this (of course). But next time you're crossing the street - pay attention to your strut, if it's a stiff one we suggest you get re-energised - preferably by a smashingly awesome bloke. Who may or may not be Paul Walker. And, if not - there's always shopping, chocolate and your fabulous girlfriends who (we know) are sure to give you an ego boost!
