The sex drive is best understood in terms of the frequency and intensity of desire. The question of gender differences in sex drive thus refers to whether one gender desires sex more than the other. Sexual fantasies are probably one of the best indexes of the strength of sex drive. Many studies have been suggesting women’s sex drives are often just as strong as those of men, or sometimes even stronger.
Here are some factors that make women sex drive higher:
- Shy towards the word sex: In a country like ours, women are unfortunately considered to be the repressed gender by some, especially when it comes to sex. Women even till today shy over the word ‘sex’ and are often touted as ‘bad’ if they do openly talk about their sexual desires. However, studies provide evidence that women need more sex than men and not the other way round.
- Due to increase estrogen level: Women who have sex at least once a week have more regular menstrual cycles than those who have sex less frequently. Many research associate changes in sex drive with fluctuations in the ratio of estrogen and progesterone, the hormones produced in the ovaries. A boost in estrogen can lead to increased libido before the period. By the time of ovulation, female estrogen levels go up, reaching their peak, which is why her libido will normally get more intense during this period.
- Women are capable of multiple orgasms: women are capable of having multiple orgasms. It may be difficult for the man to do this in the same sack session, but women are more inclined to their partners, sexually. Generally, women can attain orgasm only through sexual intercourse. One of three women gets orgasms on a regular basis during sexual intercourse. Few can attain orgasms with sexual intercourse but require extra acts to arouse action.
- Sex is an aspect of love: Many women find sex to be the deepest form of love and connection. Making love may flow from the warmth she feels in the relationship. On the other hand, men are more likely to form a connection with their partner post-sex but for most women, this begins with touching, talking and then leading to sex providing help achieved that final stage, they are more likely to be aroused more often. Emotional intimacy combined with sexual intimacy is the combination that creates a passionate relationship.
