The broad and enthusiastic coverage of What Do Women Want—Amanda Hess at Slate and Ann Friedman at The Cut are nearly as swept away as Clark-Flory—suggests a collective cry of relief: At last, irrefutable evidence that women are so much more like men, and so much more full of erotic potential, than we had ever admitted.
Yet acknowledging that women are as horny as men (if not hornier) isn't enough to guarantee equality, just as the recognition that women are increasingly adept at breadwinning doesn't ensure pay equity.
In her review, Salon's normally hyperbole-averse Tracy Clark-Flory was beside herself: "This book should be read by every woman on earth," she writes; "the implications are huge."It's not, of course, as if feminism, or Internet porn, or any other feature of modernity has suddenly created desires that never previously existed.
Rather, as Bergner and his researchers show, science is finally asking the right questions about what women want, perhaps because enough of us are ready to hear the answer.
Are men ready to cope with the reality of heterosexual women's horniness? Bergner profiles the work of a series of sexologists, all of whom have, after a series of fascinating studies with animal and human subjects, come to what is essentially the same conclusion.
Women want sex just as much as men do, and this drive is "not, for the most part, sparked or sustained by emotional intimacy and safety." When it comes to the craving for sexual variety, the research Bergner assembles suggests that women may be "even less well-suited for monogamy than men."Bergner's work puts what may be the last nail in the coffin of the old consensus that women use sex as a means to get something else they really want, such as enduring monogamous emotional intimacy and the goods and safety that come in marriage with a protector and provider.
Oh yes: "Get it girl, get it get it get it, girl." A dating app that allows people to meet based on their intellectual capacities rather than their looks! But, you know what happens when two smart people meet? Unlike any other chat where something is always missing. The rules are pretty understandable Overall this Antichat deserves a five star. Plus, some mods just straight up ban you for unjustified reason. But I really need that lag fixed or I won't use the app for weeks till the next update. 1st UPDATE: I'm happy to use this because it just gives me what i want.Any woman who's used any kind of dating app has been confronted with this most bemusing question, posed by what we can only imagine are men who have had wood for so dangerously long they've begun to experience brain death. The idea of a quick-and-dirty “Who wants to help me achieve orgasm?I'm talking about messaging exchanges that go something like this: We know you're eager, but nobody can get away with a “How 'bout a blowjob? " request may seem like a good idea when you're alone at 2 a.m.
