You can tell how good a man is in bed by his personality type, scientists reveal 0 82

YOU can tell how good a man is in bed if you study his personality, scientists claim.

They analysed 1,740 men in Taiwan who were young, healthy and sexually active.

But they shared the same problem in bed – erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is said to be a common problem, especially as men get older.

It can be caused by health conditions, such as diabetes, as well as psychological issues, such as stress.

What urologists at Taipei Veterans General Hospital wanted to uncover was whether a man’s personality drives his inability to get or keep an erection.

They quizzed the participants in order to score them on erectile dysfunction severity.

They then measured how much they fit the personality type “type D personality (TPD)”. 

There are four personality types:

  • Type A, The Director: Goal-oriented, risk-taking, good under stress
  • Type B, The Socialiser: Relationship-oriented, outgoing, enthusiastic
  • Type C, The Thinker: Detail-oriented, logical, prepared
  • Type D, The Supported: Task-oriented, stabilising, cautious

It was found that more than half (54.1 per cent) of the men with erectile dysfunction had Type D personality, according to findings in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, published by Elsevier.

Some other traits of Type D personality include that they find it difficult to speak up, are shy, resistant to change, and go along with things rather than confront them.

Their personality strengths include being approachable, trusting, caring, stable, self-confident and reliable. 

And now, researchers suggest they are more likely to have severe erectile dysfunction.

The character trait of social inhibition had a greater influence on moderate or severe ED than negative affectivity.

Social inhibition is when someone shys away from socialising, while negative affectivity is when someone strongly feels emotions such as sadness, worry or irritability.

Men with Type D personality also scored higher on a depressive symptom scale than men with other personality types. 

Depression is a risk factor for erectile dysfunction, according to the NHS. 

But where this personality type may fault men is that they are less likely to seek medical help, research suggests.

The paper also said that links have been made between TDP and bad health habits such as inactivity, smoking, and poor diet – all of which are not favourable for erectile dysfunction.

“The TDP prevalence in the overall population of European countries is estimated to be 16.6 to 38.5 per cent,” researchers said.

“TDP negatively affects erectile function both directly and indirectly, through depression. 

“Therefore, we recommend that urologists seek to identify patients with TDP.”

When to seek help?

The NHS says most men occasionally fail to get or keep an erection.

This is usually caused by stress, tiredness, anxiety or drinking too much alcohol, and it’s nothing to worry about.

If it happens more often, it may be caused by physical health or emotional problems.

The heath agency says to see a GP or go to a sexual health clinic if erection problems keep happening.

It could be a sign of an underlying health condition which needs treatment, such as diabetes.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
