Laughter plays a major role in relationships, but our response to it is key, according to new research. People fall into various categories; while some are afraid of being laughed at, others enjoy being a figure of fun and feel that being laughed at is a sign they’re appreciated. When psychologists interviewed 154 heterosexual couples, those who encouraged others to laugh at them came off well – they tended to feel more attracted to their partner and more satisfied with their sex life. Those afraid of being laughed at felt less content in their relationships, and men whose partners were uncomfortable with teasing were less satisfied with their sex life. Those who like to ridicule others tended to argue more, probably because they take it too far. The bottom line? Know your audience. If you both enjoy teasing then it’s all part of the fun. If not, save the bants for your buddies.
