Adolescent males and females react differently to their first sexual encounters

Discovery News reports:

Both male and female adolescents experience shifts in overall satisfaction with their appearances after having sex for the first time, according to a study published in the journal Adolescence.

Researchers found that in the short term, male subjects were more satisfied with their body image after having sex for the first time, while female subjects were less satisfied with their appearance in the same situation.

This trend wasn’t apparent in the long run, though, as women maintained a better body image over time than their male counterparts.
