This trend has seen black men becoming more attracted to white women, and white men becoming attracted to black women. Since the US Supreme Court decision that fully legalised interracial marriage in all the states, this practice has not witnessed as much of such cases as since , according to statistics. Interracial lovers In , revealed a Stanford University study, there were only 65, marriages involving African-Americans and whites.
In , that number had grown to , Among all interracial couples, they represented two percent of marriages in In , that number was up to seven percent of the 59 million marriages in the United States. So, what is responsible for this growing trend? It goes on to add that couples tend to start a relationship based on four important reasons: The choice, says one expert, mainly lies with the female partner, as a woman has the final say in every relationship: As sexual satisfaction and compatibility are of paramount importance to their happiness, her happiness lies on how much her man satisfies her romantically.
However, no differences were found for conflict or attachment style, and no differences found between interracial and intraracial relationships in relationship quality, conflict patterns, relationship efficacy, coping style, and attachment. Other reasons given by these men are that these women hold the misconception that white men are not masculine enough compared with the blacks, which lead them to experiment with black guys; that the white women also do it in rebellion against the old prejudice of whites against blacks, and in the process drawing attention to themselves.
The position of these whites has been that the relationships do not last long and often end in heartbreak for the white women. However, this cannot be entirely acceptable, considering the growing number of interracial marriages between white women and black men in the US and across the Atlantic. This clearly smacks of envy on the part of the whites. A white girl on a popular chat group girlsaskguys, recently posted a question: The enquirer then asked: I have just had my black girlfriend, and I am feeling pressured!
We were talking about sex the other night and she put some doubts in me because she was like she had only been with black men and she said that they are better equipped and last longer.
Its just made me feel pressured. Am I correct to feel this, and was her statement correct? Just feeling a bit pressured. However, can the same be said about foreplay and romance between a black man and a white man? Investigations revealed that white men are better than black men in that department. That perhaps explains why the number of black women dating whites is rising almost at the same rate as white women urging for black men, as the black women apparently find the white men exotic, fascinating and exciting in foreplay, especially oral sex, before the real thing.
Sabella Ogbobode Abidde, a US-based Nigerian writer posted about a meeting with friends and her ideas for her next work: Also from girlsaskguys was the poser from a white girl: Or maybe the white boyfriends, for some funny reasons, are more into pleasing their girl than the black guys? This goes for the friends and people I know. There is no doubt that, while white women enjoy foreplay, they are more attracted by the virility of the black man; and while black women equally like their fellow strong and long-lasting blacks, they find the patience and gentlemanliness to please them by the whites to be romantically exciting.
However, statistics has shown that there are more cases of white women going for black men than vice versa. Human hormones Can these rising cases of racial attraction be traced to the human hormones which is said to be produced in an organism and transported in tissue fluids such as blood to stimulate specific cells or tissues into sexual behaviour? The role of the human hormones in sexual desire has often posed challenges to sex experts and researchers.
What drives sexual desire? What is the root cause of that urge to have sex and how? Different theories have been propounded by different experts. They all boil down to the hormones. However, unlike what some believe, there is nothing like male and female hormones, according to medical experts at the Inner Balance Health Centre, Loveland, Colorado, US; a claim which has also been supported by other medical experts. It is the balance of all three hormones in the body that promotes health and sexual vitality.
In healthy amounts, it promotes growth of the uterine lining during the first half of the menstrual cycle, contributes to sexuality in many ways, helps prevent bone loss, and works toward maintaining good cholesterol levels, according to experts. In men, small amounts of estrogen are made as a by-product of testosterone conversion. And testosterone, considered the male hormone because it is produced in the testicles and to a lesser degree in the adrenal glands, helps build muscle tone, increases energy, contributes to a healthy libido, and aids in sperm production.
Levels decline with age and with high stress in the body. The third sex steroid frequently mentioned for sexual health is pregesterone, which in women, is produced in the ovaries and through ovulation. It basically balances the unwanted effects of estrogen. So, can this new trend in interracial relationship be traced to the hormones? Investigation revealed that medical and sex experts have not devoted time to relate the hormones to why white women are now attracted to black men and black women attracted to white men.
However, it is apparent that sexual appeal and compatible sexuality are the major driving force behind this trend.
