Do you think in general that men crave more sexual intimacy than women?
Yes men crave sex more, than women, but they definitely do not extend their desires to intimacy. Intimacy means emotional commitment, and even in a marital arrangement its hard for me to tap into their emotional side and just cuddle.
In my marriage it's the opposite. But I don't think we're the norm.
sex, yes by a long shot but as for intimacy, i think women in general want that more. to me intimacy is more like sex with deep feelings whereas men just want lots of sex.
Sexual drive varies from person to person.
I have seen countless hubs and blogs written by women trying to figure out how to put the "spark" back into their marriages.
In fact the majority of "self-help" books concerning relationships, sex, passion, and romance are purchased by women not men.
Having said that I do believe their is a difference in a man's mindset regarding sex when he is single or free to date around compared to when he is in a monogamus relationship or has taken the vow to "forsake all others".
His sex drive may be the same but when he's dating more than one woman the women involved may not feel pressured or obligated because he has "other options". If one woman rejects him for whatever reason he can call on another woman to see if she is in the mood.
However if this same man is (attached to one woman). He did so believing that SHE would be the ONE to address his physical and emotional needs whenever possible. When this woman rejects him the potential for feeling hurt is more likely. If the woman he "forsake all others for" doesn't desire him then he is either not going to "feel loved" or may believe he made a mistake.
A woman who cooks, cleans, purchases groceries, and does laundry may see all of these things as an expression of her love.
However those are all things he could do for himself or things his (mother) did for him.
"Sexual intimacy differentiates maternal love from romantic love".
Awhile back I wrote a hub titled "Sex And The Married Man"
Men are hard wired to crave sex (maintain species). As to which sex craves intimacy more, based on biology, men can usually get revved up quicker and finish quicker so I would think women crave intimacy more, because they get shorted on the beginning and ending.
It depends on the person.
Overall it will be equal I think.
But society has programmed us to label men as sexual predators, or the ones that want sex.
And women are the ones that can reward a man with it.
(which is not a representative of our human nature)
men don't crave more sexual intimacy than women, rather men crave more sexual lust than women do.The answer is the reverse of the question, Women crave more sexual intimacy than men.
