However, such generalization could certainly not be true for all men at all stages of life.
In order to better understand how intimate relationships work for men and women, it is important to see how their sex drives differ and compare.
Read on to learn more about the sex drives of both sexes.
The Same Sexual Stages of Men and Women
Although the desire for sex in men and women may be different, it is important to note that every human goes through the same four sexual stages of arousal.
Excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution occurs whether you are a man or a woman.
However, how often you desire to begin that process is an entirely different matter that may have more to do with gender than previously thought.
The Libido of Women Influenced By Emotions and Feelings
Women’s sex drives can be influenced by emotional, social and cultural cues.
Social psychologist Roy Baumeister says that, “Women are more likely to want to have sex if they have a higher level of education, if they desire to become pregnant or if they do not attend church.”
The Libido of Men is Directly Tied to Biology
Testosterone is a major factor in a man’s sex drive. This hormone is what causes a high libido in both men and women.
Since testosterone is found in higher amounts in men, it makes sense that men are more interested in having sex frequently.
When men experience a low sex drive, increased testosterone treatments can often fix the problem instantly.
For women, however, increased testosterone may be only a small factor in dealing with larger emotional and psychological issues.
Men Think About Sex More Often
To better understand how men are interested in sex more than women, take a look at these numbers.
Only a scant 25 percent adult women, however, think about sex as often as men do.
Since men are more stimulated by visual cues, it stands to reason that sex is on the forefront of their thinking more often.
Research clearly suggests that men think about sex more and have higher sex drives.
However, a number of factors like religion, education, the desire to have a child or hormones can have an effect on sex drives of both men and women.
