Study Examines Potential Evolutionary Role of “Sexual Regret” in Human Survival and Reproduction

Study Examines Potential Evolutionary Role of “Sexual Regret” in Human Survival and Reproduction | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

In the largest, most in-depth study to date on regret surrounding sexual activity, a team of psychology researchers found a stark contrast in remorse between men and women, potentially shedding light on the evolutionary history of human nature...

When Women Pursue Sex, Even Men Don’t Get It

When Women Pursue Sex, Even Men Don’t Get It | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Female animals don’t just enjoy sex, they are not shy about pursuing it. Bergner’s new book is a reexamination of everything we think we know about sex and female biology. An excerpt in The New York Times Magazine two weeks ago explained how, contrary to long-standing cultural beliefs that women are turned on by stability and emotional intimacy, long-term monogamy actually saps women’s sex drives. A German researcher “shows women and men in new relationships reporting, on average, more or less equal lust for each other. But for women who’ve been with their partners between one and four years, a dive begins — and continues, leaving male desire far higher.” We fundamentally misunderstand women’s lust, says Bergner. And not just when it comes to married women.
