Women vs. Men - 6 myths behind the curtain
Differences between women and men attitude on sex often not taken seriously. Typically, men want sex and women want commitment. The men seeking beautiful partner, while women looked at social status, or at least, so thinks the majority society. But not all psychologists argue these views.
In a new study from the University of Michigan psychologist Terri Conley and colleagues investigated this issue, noting that the differences between the sexes are not always just black and white and were able to highlight six of the most common myths about wishes of both sexes.
Men Vs Woman
Men think about sex more than women
Men think about sex every two minutes. It is a cliché. And one false, it ensures Terri. Even if it were true, just as thinking and other basic needs, such as sleep or food.
In a study published in the Journal of Sex Research in 2011, participants were asked to register their thoughts a day. The researchers found that men think about sex 18 times a day, and women about 10 times, but these figures do not necessarily show an obsession out of the male sex.
Men want more sex partners than women
If you ask most men and women how many partners they want a certain period of time, given the number of men would certainly be higher. But again, the responses can not be taken for granted. Most often, men tend to bypass truth and fable give good to others and to seem macho.
Men want "sexy" ... women want "status"
Another myth underlying these theories is that men want a beautiful and sexy woman, while women seek a man to provide security in all respects, including the material. According to a 2008 study, they were exactly the criteria that young people look for in a partner. But when asked adults to experience life couple, opinions have changed totally, this myth is derailed.
Women get more difficult to orgasm than men
Studies suggest that men are part of many more orgasms than women, but Conley and colleagues added a caveat: only if the differences are large one-night stands or brief relationships. In fact, things are quite different when women are involved in serious relationships, because they are more open and relaxed, have a high degree of confidence, which leads to improved sexual life of both partners.
Men like sex more than women without obligation
In a 1989 study, researchers have proposed some groups of young men and women to address one unknown person of the opposite sex, and to declare that they want a relationship based solely on sex. The findings of this experiment: 70% of men approached said yes, while no woman accepted. Therefore, the myth that men like to have sex without obligations is true.
Women are more selective than men
Almost everyone believes that men only want sex, regardless of place or person, and that women are more demanding in terms of their partner. But according to researchers, this is not necessarily true.
A study published in 2009 in a specialized publication, showed that people are generally more selective when approached and less demanding when they are the ones that address. And because men are usually the first step, women remain the man who will pass through all filters, leading to the conclusion that women are more demanding and excessive demands on appearance and behavior opposite the perfect partner.
