(Newser) – You can tell from a woman's walk what kind of sex she has, a bunch of researchers in Scotland claim. Women who are able to have vaginal orgasms from intercourse alone have a sashay distinct enough that these "trained sexologists" could distinguish them 4 out of 5 times, the Los Angeles Times reports with almost a straight face.

The authors of the study claim there's evidence that some women are physically predisposed to have vaginal orgasms—considered somehow "superior" in psychoanalytic thinking—while others depend mostly on clitoral stimulation to climax. These experts—okay, two psych professors and two grad students—note the possibility that mental health plays a role in the signature walk: women capable of vaginal climax also tend to be happier and more confident, they say.
