Why Women Have Sex – And More…

I’m no sexologist but I find studies like this compelling, for the same reason that I found What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently” interesting.

Newsweek reports on a new book called, bluntly, “Why Women Have Sex”. The reasons, very much like women themselves, are varied and complex.

“One of the things we realized early on was that there’s this huge gap in the field of study in that we thought women’s sexual motivations were sort of intuitive and understood. But what shocked me was the sheer complexity of women’s psychology.”

Newsweek reports on a new book called, bluntly, “Why Women Have Sex”. The reasons, very much like women themselves, are varied and complex.

The piece also cites this really cool study, detailing 237 reasons that women sleep with men. And while it should go without saying, Newsweek makes the same disclaimer that I do when posting something potentially controversial

“The women who answered Meston and Buss’s online survey certainly don’t represent every woman, says Julia Heiman, the director of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. Nor will an anonymous online poll tell us everything we need to know… “Up until the past 10 years, we weren’t even talking about the nuances of female sexuality, let alone the multifaceted reasons we have sex,” says Laura Berman, a professor of psychiatry at Northwestern University and the author of Real Sex for Real Women.  “So in that sense, this is a really big step.” A step, with many more to go.”
