Once every couple of days?
Tuesday, August 08, 2006
So, while I agree that men and women are wired differently, I have a hard time believing this statement:
"Thoughts about sex enter women's brains once every couple of days; for men, thoughts about sex occur every minute." It came from this article about a new book called The Female Brain. Seriously, female readers, do you only think about sex every couple of days? From my experience, females think about it just as much as males. Or maybe I just hanging out with the girls my parents warned me about. Song of the Day

I think about it all the time--every couple of days? for what type of woman?
How about every other second?
For me, it's every few hours.
The only way I get through work each day is by thinking about sex as much as possible.
And honestly, the older I get, the more it seems that women want sex more than men. Maybe it's just because women are more open about their sexual needs than they were 20 years ago. Maybe she's frigid...
I do not mean to ask this in a sexist pig kind of way, but why is it that women tend to say they like sex only to act all embarrassed and coy about it after the fact?
Was this survey conducted in a very staid convent?
The results seem highly unlikely methinks, and definitely not the sort of girls you'd want to be hanging around if it is true. Find out where the research sample was taken and then don't go there.
I don't think about sex nearly as much as I used to when I was single. I think for most women sex is a way to feel loved and wanted because the act itself is intimate (unless you like group sex) and therefore, a replacement for love. This is especially true for women who grew up without a strong father figure.
I read an article once by a woman who gave up casual sex for her magazine column. She stopped cold turkey and did things like try to sleep with her gay friends when she spent a night drinking with them. Her gynecologist told her that when women have a lot of sexual partners, they usually never marry because they can't settle for just one flavor. The doctor took that analogy a step further and compared it to all 31 flavors at Baskin Robbins. (Vanilla was good, but I wonder what Chocolate tastes like?) The columnist took herself out of her usual routines, like drinking, etc and took up new activities, like horseback riding. She soon discovered how much she liked it and was driven to try other things, such as driving race cars. She felt like she rediscovered her independence. I think when any activity excessively used to relieve boredom or escape reality, it does more harm than good. People do it with alcohol, pot, video games, porn, and sex. I'm not saying I never think about sex. I do, especially when Sebastian is right there in front of me. Then I get horny...for him.
Great comment Jackye. Thanks for sharing.
