London: A new study has revealed that problems in the bedroom may be related to 'mummy issues' and how good a relationship a man has with his mother.
The researchers found that by having a strained relationship with your mum as a child can directly affect sexual issues as an adult, the Daily Star reported.
The study of 960 men, which was conducted by the Charles University in Prague, also found that those who waited until later in life to use the big 'L' word had problems in the bedroom and concluded that men who have more difficulties with sexual functions later in life had also tended to fall in love later on.
Regarding the relationship between men and their mothers, the study found one explanation for this finding was that psychogenic factors (when a physical illness stems from an emotional stress) may play a more important role.
The study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
