An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Men programmed to be obsessive about sex

Dr. Louann Brizendine M.D., is a neuropsychiatrist and the author of “The Female Brain”. She has now come out with a new book “The Male Brain: A Breakthrough Understanding Of How Men And Boys Think”.

There she argues that the male species in predisposed to being obsessed with Sex. Some of her findings almost seem like cliches, so one wonders if there is some truth to the cliches or if the doc’s research was rather quacky? Some of her assertions:

  1. Men really are sex-crazed: The brain’s part linked to sexual pursuit is two-and-a-half times larger in males than females.
  2. They’re programmed to be perverse: The testosterone drives what Louann calls the “man trance” – a glazed-eye stare at breasts. She says: “I wish I could say that men can stop themselves from entering this trance. But the truth is, they can’t.”
  3. Men want more partners: According to the book, men want an average of 14 sexual partners in their lifetime. Women want one or two.

I am sure generalizations don’t help to understand members of any group or species. I am sure there are men who are not sex starved and there are women who are so obsessed with sex that they could leave several men exhausted.

So, her complete conclusion –

  • men are obsessed with sex;
  • they hide their emotions, and
  • cheat

So what can women do about this species?

“The best advice I have for women is make peace with the male brain. Let men be men.”

Wonder what Sandra Bullock may be thinking?

    If you are in not good state and have no money to move out from that point, you will have to receive the home loans. Because that will aid you for sure. I take collateral loan every time I need and feel great because of it.

    lol! While men have no better reason to smile a little more about this new research, you are right Desh, there can be so many women out there who are like this and so many men who do not fall into this category but I guess the author doesnt mean to point out at those outliers..going by the statistical relevance..it might be true as well..a BETTER reason to SMILE more..way to go MEN!!
