New Delhi, March 7, 2017: Around 64 per cent working women in the metro cities were satisfied with their workplaces, industry body PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry said on Tuesday.

“Majority of women participants (64 per cent) stated they were either completely or somewhat satisfied with their work,” said a survey on “Work Life and Balance and Health Concerns of Women” undertaken by PHD Research Bureau.

The survey said a positive trend was seen in work satisfaction though most women (70 per cent) worked 8-10 hours and travelled long distances, often devoting more than an hour to reach their workplaces.

A majority of women (77 per cent) said the government should come out with more policies for women empowerment.

“Of the surveyed women, 56 per cent (2,800) respondents were working women while 44 per cent (2,200) were non-working women,” the report pointed out.

“The majority (84 per cent) reported that they devote 2-4 hours in household work and 49 per cent said they have domestic help.”

The report, however, noted that little support came from family members in running household errands.

The industry body said the survey study was an endeavour to explore and strike a balance between work, life and health status of women in the country. (IANS)

Consuming porn instigates body-related insecurities in women that might not only reduce their interest in engaging in intimate activities with their partners but also negatively affect their arousal, a study suggests.

Researchers have explored the association between pornography and intimate partner experiences among heterosexual women and revealed that there was a complex relationship between the two.

Published in the Journal of Women’s Health, the study reveals that thinking of pornographic material during intimate experiences with a heterosexual partner among women minght give rise to insecurities about appearances and thus reduces the enjoyment of the intimate acts.

For the findings, the research team surveyed 706 heterosexual women aged 18-29 in the US, associating the consumption of pornography with sexual preferences, experiences and concerns.

The researchers reported that while most women in the study sample had seen pornography, fewer than half used it for masturbation.

Those women who used it at higher rates for masturbation tended to rely more on pornographic scripts during sex to achieve and maintain arousal and were more likely to prefer pornography to sex with a partner.

“The researchers demonstrate a clear difference between the role of pornography in sexual experiences of women compared to men,” said Susan G Kornstein from Virginia Commonwealth University in the US.

“Whereas the relationship tends to be more direct in young heterosexual men and just viewing pornographic material is associated with reduced sexual intimacy and satisfaction, women make the material part of their personal sexual experience and carry the pornographic script into their intimate partner experiences,” Kornstein said.
