Men are more likely to seek sex even when it's frowned upon or even outlawed: What turns women on? Northwestern University researcher Meredith Chivers and colleagues showed erotic films to gay and straight men and women.
They asked them about their level of sexual arousal, and also measured their actual level of arousal through devices attached to their genitals.
Our focus has always been on the female gaze: we create and curate porn with a female perspective, with a focus on female fantasies and pleasure.
For The Girls is an independent adult site, created by two women who wanted to see porn that reflected their own desires and tastes.
The majority of adult men under 60 think about sex at least once a day, reports Laumann.
But genitally they showed about the same reaction to male-female, male-male, and female-female sex.
"Men are very rigid and specific about who they become aroused by, who they want to have sex with, who they fall in love with," says J. He is a Northwestern University sex researcher and co-author with Chivers on the study.
Study after study shows that men's sex drives are not only stronger than women's, but much more straightforward.
But women also appear to be heavily influenced by social and cultural factors as well.
