Why Women Have Sex (New Study)

Some of you guys are screwed on here. Just not by a woman. lmao (jk)


Cindy Meston and David Buss, authors of Why Women Have Sex, highlight 200 specific reasons.

'Research has shown that most men find most women at least somewhat sexually attractive, whereas most women do not find most men sexually attractive at all,' conclude the authors, both psychology professors at the University of Texas.

Having apparently discounted physical attraction, the 1,000 women interviewed by Prof Meston gave a huge range of reasons for sleeping with a man.

One said she did it for a spiritual experience, proclaiming: 'It's the closest thing to God.'

But in most cases the explanations were far more mundane, with 84 per cent admitting to having sex just to ensure a quiet life or to bargain-for household chores.

Other reasons included: 'he bought me a nice dinner', 'he spent a lot of money on me early on' and 'he showed me he had an extravagant lifestyle'. And rather than love or romance, for many women sex is just about fun.

Six in ten university students in one survey said they regularly slept with a male friend who was not their boyfriend.

One, who was at a different college from her boyfriend, explained it was because 'life is too damn short to be waiting four years to have sex again'.

Others confessed they did it to improve their sexual performance, with one explaining: 'I have had sex with my boyfriend to make my sexual skills better.'

The research concluded, perhaps predictably, that women are attracted to tall men with a deep voice, who smell good.

A symmetrical body also helps, since it is a genetic indicator of health and suggests he will give his lover strong children.

However, those who don't live up to this ideal can take some comfort. Their lower level of testosterone may win over the ladies too, because it suggests they are less likely to run off with another woman.
