Do you think a High Sex Drive for women is Associated With Increased Sexual Attraction to women?

According to three studies assessing a total of 3,645 participants show that for most women, a high sex drive is associated with increased sexual attraction to both women and men. For men, however, high sex drive is associated with increased sexual attraction to only one sex or the other, depending on the individual's sexual orientation. These results suggest that the correlates of sex drive and the organization of sexual orientation are different for women and men.

  • Nope. Sure don't

    • In general, the current results show that for most women (with the possible exception of lesbian women), high sex drive is associated with increased sexual attraction to both men and women. For men, however, high sex drive is associated with increased sexual attraction to only one sex or the other, depending on the individual's sexual orientation. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that sexual orientation is organized differently in women and men. Indeed, the current data provide new evidence that men's same-sex and other-sex attractions are much more polarized than women's. Furthermore, among men, higher sex drive is associated with greater polarization of same-sex and other-sex attractions. However, most women (with the possible exception of lesbian women) do not show this pattern.

    • Ok cool. Thanks for the info though I'm concerned with the jumping to conclusion that guys tend to do with this info.

  • Nope not at all

    • The study shows that for heterosexual women, in contrast, sex drive correlated with both attractions to women and attraction to men. Thus, for heterosexual women, sex drive seems to act as a generalized energizer of sexual attractions to both women and men. For heterosexual men, in contrast, sex drive seems to energize only dominant attractions. In addition, all three studies corroborated previous findings that there are significant sex differences in sex drive. Lesbian women were the one group that showed somewhat inconsistent results. In both Studies 2 and 3, there was evidence that higher sex drive was associated with greater attraction to women among lesbians.

    • Yeah still trolling this rubbish I see

    • Not trolling, we studied this in the university. According to Meredith Chivers, straight women are physically aroused by a greater variety of erotic images than men, and this physical arousal does not match subjective arousal. Similar results were found in a study that showed both consensual and non-consensual sex scenes to men and women. Neither men nor women reported sexual arousal to the rape scenes, but women's bodies responded in a similar way to both scenarios. This may be because women's physical arousal, regardless of psychological arousal, is an evolutionary automatic response to prevent damage during rape. A study that measured sexual arousal through pupil dilation found that the physical response of lesbian and bisexual women to erotic images was more category-specific than that of straight women, with lesbian women showing more response to women, and bisexual women showing more response to the preferred sex than the other. This may be due to the masculinization of the brain via prenatal hormones. The difference between straight and non-straight women was consistent with Chivers' findings, although straight women did show more consistency with their orientation with this measure than with the genital measure.
