BALTIMORE — Sleepy men exercised poor judgment regarding whether a woman is a willing sex partner — similar to errors made when drinking to excess, researchers reported here.

When men were deprived of sleep, the men’s rating of a woman’s sexual intent increased significantly from a score of 13.5 to 17.55 (P<0.05), said Jennifer Peszka, PhD, associate professor of psychology at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark. However, there was no change in how the women perceived the men, even with the same amount of sleep deprivation, Peszka told MedPage Today at her poster presentation at the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies.

  1. You ever notice how the stereotype is that women are So Emotional and Unfocused! but that every study like this one I’m aware of tends to show the opposite? Jesus, guys are the divas, aren’t they?
