It’s not just their wild locks that make them appealing in the bedroom. Redheads’ MC1R genes, the ones responsible for their red hair, can also be credited for other physical characteristics that make them great in bed.
Redheads are quite special indeed. In 2000, when researchers pinpointed the exact gene responsible for red hair, the mutated MC1R protein, they found that it may only manifest in as little as 1 to 2 percent of the population. But what exactly makes redheads superstars in the bedroom? Read on to find out.
Redheads have special pheromones.
Stephen Douglas, author of the book The Redheaded Encyclopedia, notes that redheads have a unique sweet and musky scent on their skin that comes as a result of their pheromone production. This particular scent is effective in attracting possible mates and increasing their sexual desires.
Redheads engage in more sexual activities than others.
In one study, a University of Hamburg sex researcher found that female redheads, whether single or in a committed relationship, engage in more sexual activities than other females. Redheads also reportedly have the highest orgasm rate at 41 percent out of all the different hair types.
Redheads are more physically sensitive.
The same genes responsible for red hair also cause redheads to respond differently to physical stimuli. According to research, gingers feel hot and cold temperatures more rapidly than others.
They also respond to pain differently than blonds or brunettes. This heightened sensitivity to outside stimuli can translate to exciting sexual play in the bedroom.
Redheads are known to be passionate and erotic.
Some theorists suggest that redheads’ heightened sensitivity to pain and other physical stimuli also contribute to their passionate and erotic reputation. The same passion can pay off when it comes to sex. The color red has also long been known to represent passion, lust, and arousal.
