The idea that women are the ones who decide whether sex happens or not is an outdated concept. But, are there personality traits that are more likely to make them want to put out?

While it’s a safe bet that physically attractive people have more sex, but what about people’s sexual attraction within themselves? Are there certain personalities that tend to have more sex?

According to a new study, published in the Personality and Individual Differences journal, there are four personality types that have more bedroom play.

The researchers surveyed nearly 3,000 straight men and 1,500 straight women, between ages 18 and 81. The research was based off of questions about their personalities and how often they freak in the sheets each week.

Unsurprisingly, the most sexually active among them groups were the extroverts.

The more extroverted a person was, being that they enjoy being social and being around people, the more frequently they have sex. This checks out, in that extrovertedness and charisma tend to go hand in hand.

This was true for both straight men and straight women.

However the deeper reasoning, outlined in their research, was surprising. They explain that alongside extroverts having more of an opportunity to have sex, they also point out that if you love being around people, you'll probably hear about sex from an earlier age.

"Extroverts are more likely to acquire sexual knowledge at a younger age and have more liberal attitudes toward different forms of sexual intercourse," the authors explain in the paper.

"As extroverts show higher levels of proactive socialization behavior, such salience of extroverts in the mating market (compared to introverts) may increase their access to more potential mates and in turn increase opportunity for copulation."

Sexually active men's and women's personality trends differ

The findings about each gender were fascinating, particularly with men. According to the study, men who were more self-aware (the study calls it conscientiousness, and examples traits like being responsible and morally upstanding), more emotionally stable, and (unfortunately) less agreeable also tended to have more regular sex.

There were also certain combinations of personality traits that translated to more sex. Guys who had high extroversion and high agreeableness, high extroversion and high conscientiousness, or high agreeableness and high conscientiousness also got dirty more frequently.

For women, mostly extroversion correlated with more sex. While female objectification is a whole different study to unpack, personality seemed to matter more in determining a male’s sexual activity.

The researchers have a theory of why

"As males, theoretically, are the sex that must compete harder for sexual access, greater variation in traits and particular combinations thereof may provide select males with a point of increased differentiation," the authors write. "Evolutionary pressure may have historically been greater on males to show wider variance in personality with which to successfully secure mates to reproduce."

Of course, men have dynamic personalities for reasons other than to get laid, and now, more than ever, people have sex for more than just reproduction.

So what's another possible reason for why personality determines men's sexual activity more than it does for women? Perhaps women care more about their partners’ personalities than men do?

But introverts are still getting love

While extroverts are having more sex, introverts aren’t left for dead. In fact, with a trusting partner, introverts tend to have more wild sex, which you wouldn’t expect from their shy demeanor.

Plus, being able to get sex delivered to you through dating apps, has been a blessing for introverts that like to frisk frequently, because they don’t have to strut through a bar to find their mate for the night.

No matter how self-aware/conscientiousness, emotionally stable, and agreeable/not you may be, there is always the right person for you. Plus, we can starve to death and die of dehydration, but nobody has ever died from not being able to get laid.
