  • Women and our Sex Drive

    There's a general belief that women aren't as interested in sex and that can cause a tension between a husband and wife.

    So I have a couple of questions I want to ask you lady-folk. (I have my own responses to them, but I'm interested in hearing what everyone has to say.)

    1) Do you think it's true women have lower sex drives? If so, why?

    2) Do you think men and women view sex differently? If so, do think these perspectives conflict with each other?

    3) Is it OK deny a husband's overtures for sex? If so, how often? (As an example: Would it be OK for a woman to only allow sex once a year? Once a month? Once a week?)

    4) How important do you think sex is in a marriage?

      I moved it to Health Science. The OP's direction still remains in force. Women only from this point on.

        1) No.

        2) Yes. Sometimes.

        3) Yes. Depends.

        4) Varies.

          I'm not a guy! Seriously, I'm a woman! D:

          Is this being moved because everyone thinks I'm a guy or because I put this in the wrong spot?

            If you'd like it moved back to the sorority, I can do that. Mea culpa.

              Sorry, when you said 'lady-folk' it sounded like you weren't counting yourself. My bad.

                Uh... well... I was hoping for women's replies so.. I mean... now I don't know. Maybe I'd get more replies here anyway?

                Haha, you know what's funny? I originally wrote "girls" and thought afterward "Eh, but this is for women so..." and then I was gonna put "women" but changed my mind at the last minute to "lady-folk".

                I'm hoping the avatar I have now will reduce future confusion.

                      So I have a couple of questions I want to ask you lady-folk. (I have my own responses to them, but I'm interested in hearing what everyone has to say.)
                      1) Do you think it's true women have lower sex drives? If so, why?
                      It can depend on several factors including the mid-40's when women's drives go up and men's go down.

                      2) Do you think men and women view sex differently? If so, do think these perspectives conflict with each other?
                      Possibly so. Women tend to be more comfort oriented and men be more visual physical oriented. And it can. Especially in the realm of how a relationship is viewed.

                      3) Is it OK deny a husband's overtures for sex? If so, how often? (As an example: Would it be OK for a woman to only allow sex once a year? Once a month? Once a week?)
                      Ummm yes it'd better be ok especially in the realm of sickness, pain, ill health, or something else.
                      4) How important do you think sex is in a marriage?
                      Important but not the most important factor
                      A happy family is but an earlier heaven.

                        Sex? Why would you want to do that??? Though, I'm a virgin... so I wouldn't know anymore than the biological facts of reproduction.
                        If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                          1) Do you think it's true women have lower sex drives? If so, why?

                          women have lower sex drives than men at times and higher at other times...however I think that the pill and other hormone disrupters that women take for all kinds of reasons are also to blame.

                          2) Do you think men and women view sex differently? If so, do think these perspectives conflict with each other?

                          I think it depends on how you were brought up, societal beliefs, religious beliefs all play apart as well as things like if you have been sexually assaulted, raped etc. I have met women with very high sex drives who would sleep with a different man every night and men who would never sleep with a women till marriage.

                          3) Is it OK deny a husband's overtures for sex? If so, how often? (As an example: Would it be OK for a woman to only allow sex once a year? Once a month? Once a week?)

                          I think this is something that needs to be discussed openly with your husband. My first marriage things like this were not discussed and I had no idea of my husbands needs. This time we have both been open, I have low needs and he has high so we have compromised.

                          4) How important do you think sex is in a marriage?

                          Sex is a very important part of marriage, it allows you to be closer to your partner and gives you something that you can not (should not) have outside that union. It is something that is between the two of you and some how draws you closer to one another in a unique way.
