A new study finds that men have more sex after getting a vasectomy.
According to researchers, they were three times more likely to experience an increase in frequency after getting the procedure done rather than showing a decrease.
According to the researchers, those who had the snip said their sex lives had ‘significantly improved.’
Experts feel this could be because removing the stress of getting their partner pregnant makes men feel more relaxed, making their love lives more spontaneous.
Men who had vasectomies also said they had higher sex drives, better erections and orgasms and were more satisfied.
Not only men, women too reported an increase in their sexual arousal after their partner had the operation.
The study, conducted in Frankfurt University found 12.4 per cent of the men had sex more often after a vasectomy. Meanwhile, just 4.5 per cent reported having it less often.
The report concluded that they were able to show the sexual satisfaction of men improved and that of the women did not diminish since they were less anxious of unwanted pregnancies.
Research by Stanford University in 2015 found that men who had the snip had sex 5.9 times a month, compared with 4.9 times for intact males.
Vasectomies are minimally-invasive procedures, which take about 15 minutes and
However, recent studies show that more men are choosing to preserve their fertility to have children later in life, particularly if their marriage breaks down.
They also say men may be deterred by the permanency, since vasectomies are very expensive and arduous to reverse, with uncertain success.
