Women may not know when aroused?

Posted by Ria, 26 Jan 10

When it comes to syncing the mind and body in matters of sexual arousal - according to a research review published online in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior in Jan 4 - women are less in sync than men.

This group of researchers wanted to access the connection between subjective experiences of sexual arousal and physiological genital responses. They reviewed more than 2,500 women and 1,900 men.

According to Meredith Chivers, a psychology professor at Queen's University in Canada. Chivers and colleagues men’s subjective ratings mirrored their body’s level of sexual arousal 66% of the time while in the case of women, mind and body were in agreement 26% of the time.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

"For men, their experience is strongly related to physiological arousal whereas for women it is less so," Chivers said. "The general pattern that I have seen in my laboratory is that women experience a genital response but do not report feeling sexually aroused."

Does this mean some women have orgasms and they just have no clue? Hmmmmm.... May be we don't need the endless foreplay then ;-)

    When i read this topic I had to read it a few times. You might not no you are hungry but if you are a woman you sure as hell know something is going on. Could be one us brothers can believe we cant drive you out of yo mind with arousal. But listen jai127 and petitensweet, if you'd like some reinforcement on that agreement I am a candidate. Will bring that heat as I rule da world. Oh an I will give tutoring on arousal awareness, it might be a good course.

    Personally I think if a woman is especially sexually active/good sexual appetite, will definately knw when and how she got aroused.

    I think women know when they are aroused but dont respond to it not because they dont enjoy sex, but because they know they can become emotionally involved with someone who is potentially just treating sex like a sport. Ive found that when a woman is aroused she knows it, and either choses to respond or not. Most guys just respond to it, but I am more deliberate. If I dont want to get close on all levels I wont start with sex.

    If your lover is a white guy, more than likely you'll know that you're aroused, because white guys are the best in bed and in every other area. They are mature, masculine leaders of society.

    Well you know what the other studies say - men think about sex every 7 seconds, women more like every month. If that's the case it only goes to figure why men are more apt to be sexually aroused by just about anything - and considering they can't hide their arousal very well - I guess that would make them more aware.

    Hmmmmm, I know when I am aroused. If I am wet down "there" and my brain says I am not aroused. Then it's simple I HAVE PEED ON MYSELF

WOW....u should see what the woman is doing to her self on page 57...is that possible?? I'm sticking to PornTube! This scientific stuff makes me perplexed...thanks!

    Like this is something bout guys we didn't know lol! How often have us ladies heard the excuse from a boyfriend if he has strayed, which goes along the lines. 'I couldn't help myself. It was just sex'. Women can have experiences and resulting sexual feelings without always acting upon them
