Daniel Bergner, a journalist and contributing editor to the New York Times Magazine , knows what women want--and it's not monogamy. His new book, which chronicles his "adventures in the science of female desire," has made quite a splash for apparently exploding the myth that female sexual desire is any less ravenous than male sexual desire. The book, What Do Women Want , is based on a article, which received a lot of buzz for detailing, among other things, that women get turned on when they watch monkeys having sex and gay men having sex, a pattern of arousal not seen in otherwise lusty heterosexual men. That women can be turned on by such a variety of sexual scenes indicates, Bergner argues, how truly libidinous they are.

All About the Male Sex Drive

Everything You Wanted to Know About the Male Sex Drive

There are many stereotypes that portray men as sex-obsessed machines. Books, television shows, and movies often feature characters and plot points that assume men are crazy about sex and women are only concerned with romance. So what stereotypes about the male sex drive are true? How do men compare to women?

How Strong Is the Female Sex Drive After All?

At least, that's the long-enduring stereotype that was recently perpetuated via Reddit, which posted an actual spreadsheet a man put together to show how frequently his wife denied him sweet sweet sex. Let's get this out of the way right off the bat: Men do seem to be, on the whole, more sexually keyed up than women. One survey out of Florida State University found that men have more spontaneous sexual arousal and more frequent and varied fantasies than women. Plus, the majority of them are reportedly thinking about sex at least once a day, compared to a quarter of women who have the same regular stream of naughty thoughts.
Who has more sexual desire — women or men? The age-old question that never seems to go out of style. As a sex therapist who specializes in low libido I can tell you right off the bat that this is a tricky question to answer, as the way we look at sexual desire is steeped in a lot of cultural myths. The answer you get will probably differ — depending on how you believe libido works and how many of these myths you buy into. The running idea is that men desire sex more often than women.
