I was just reading this article about the scientific study of women’s desire to have sex as opposed to men’s need to have sex and they studied female rats to further explain. Basically female rats have clits and when you rub these said clits (apparently they look like eraser heads) the female rat looks to enjoy it and when the scientist stop rubbing their clits, the rats “ask” for more.
It goes on explaining that women are more passive when it comes to sexual relations and are turned on by the thought of being persuade or chased, and this theory I guess continues even in the animal world. That females have to seem passive to get sex and men are turned off when females seem forward. But studies show that females get bored when the chase is done (between one year and 4) while men continue to remain interested in sex. The theory stands that females like sex, men need sex to survive and spread their gene. The fact that females LIKE sex just makes the spreading of the gene that much easier.
What I want to know is, after years and years of schooling and thousands and thousands of dollars in colleges and degrees, what scientist ends up his career flicking some female rat’s clit?
The above linked article is a really interesting read…
