Boys’ Nights Out Good For Men
It’s long been appreciated that women get a lot of emotional support from chatting with female friends over morning coffee.
But now scientists have found that men too benefit from male bonding sessions on the “boys’ night out.”
According to the research, every man needs a good night out with his mates now and then for his emotional health.
Male Bonding Lowers Stress
Scientists from Germany’s University of Gottingen male bonding is more likely to lower a man’s stress levels than a night out with his partner, or time spent with the family.
The study – bound to be wheeled out as an excuse by men across the country – found males suffer less anxiety when out in a group.
The study was based on the behaviour of groups of Barbary macaques, a type of ape which exhibits remarkably human-like social behaviour.
Higher Stress in Family Life
Levels of male stress hormone soared when male macaques were with their partner or other family members. But when they were in a group of other males, they were more much more relaxed.
The researchers even discovered stress-related illnesses only seemed to occur among females or couples.
Males also look after each other, the study for the journal PNAS noted. While men may do this by watching each other’s backs, for monkeys this means picking insects and fleas out of each other’s fur.
Christopher Young of the university’s Primate Social Evolution Group said: “If male primates live in multimale groups they usually fight fiercely over access to females, but males can develop friendly relationships with a few group mates.
“Male macaques form social bonds similar to human friendships that buffer them against day-to-day stressors.”
