It’s The Testosterone
Men are pissed off. Women never seem to want sex.
Women are pissed off because men always want sex.
The reason humans want sex is fuelled by
testosterone, predominantly a male hormone.
An average male produces 20 times more than a female.
A male feels the need for sex after a
day without it, a female after 20 days.
A male who hasn’t had sex for twenty
days feels the same way as a female
after more than a year without sex.
Knowing this simple difference, you
can understand the ‘manpain’ of males.
It’s not their fault. They’re made
this way. It’s in their genes.
A man can father a child every time he has sex
but a woman can only mother a child every two years or so.
This means, a woman needs to be picky about
whom she allows to have sex with her.
While men were determined to seek better genes too,
they had to grab all chances to procreate coming
their way to ensure their genes would be passed forward.
By nature men are made to seek as much sex as
they can get, so they can spread their seed wider.
By nature women are made to seek as many admirers
as they can get, so they can make a better choice
and get the best seed.
Men seek quantity. Women seek quality.
The Post-Coital Flush
The heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure go
up during sex, pumping more oxygen around the body.
The skin’s blood circulation will also go up and with it
the skin’s oxygen and nutrient supply. The skin becomes
warmer and might look flushed, as adrenaline dilates
the body’s superficial blood vessels.
With skin temperature going up, our sweat glands will increase
their perspiration rate. And this applies not just to our ‘normal’
sweat glands, but also special types called ‘apocrine sweat glands’.
They secrete pheromones in sexual arousal and are located
in our skin around the nipples, armpits and the genitals.
Not only our sweat glands work harder during sex, the
skin’s glands also tend to produce more nourishing oils.
