Most of us remember our teen years when we first came to know about the $ex. It was the most hushed topic amongst the friend circle. As shocking the newly found knowledge was, along with the intense curiosity to know more, it would also give a huge sense of disgust.
But have you ever thought what happened to that ''sense of disgust'' when we started having sexual drives?
This new research has all the answers that you seek. The experiments were carried out on females but, according to the researchers, the results are same with the males too.
For the sake of experiment, 90 women were divided into three groups. The three groups were shown different videos, the first one was presented with an erotica, the second group witnessed adrenaline-infusing activities like skydiving. The last one got to see a mere train ride.
The first group was highly aroused. The second group that was 'positively' aroused and well, the third group, it wasn't aroused at all. They were further asked to carry out a set of 16 activities that are normally considered to be disgusting.
The activities included putting fingers in a tray of Used Condoms, wiping hands with used tissues and eating cookies placed next to worms. The first group was more open to trying all the activities enthusiastically. Whereas, the 'positively' aroused ones were less likely to test their disgust-ridden capabilities. And the non- aroused third group definitely refrained from all sorts of the activities given.
