Here's a discussion of the attempt to answer the question of the comparative sex drives of men vs. women. It is not a study itself, but a discussion about the many studies that have been used to attempt to answer some of these questions, with links to peer reviewed journal articles and meta-analysis of dozens of studies.
Take from it what you will. I don't care what the answer is as long as it's supportable by data. Do men really have higher sex drives than women?
Cletus...that was a great article, but several of the links were broken, including the main one at the very end.
The thing is that there are other meta-studies that don't come out the same as the one in that article. As I said, if you want to know more of why I personally don't believe the data presented in your article means men are more sexual than women, you could read the book What Do Women Want? The conclusion is much different. Basically, boiled down to it, the conclusion of the book is that female sexual desire is something that men simply can't mentally grasp how it works because it most definitely works differently than most men's sexual desire.
Just because a woman's desire works differently, and just because women may MB less and desire fewer partners over a lifetime, does not mean that they are "less sexual" than men are. Your article even says the same thing. There's no one "test" for how sexual people are. I'm actually working on one for blog material now.
In nature, males and females do not want sex more or less than each other, they BOTH want it, it is equal...yet the physiology and many other aspects of sexual arousal and desire are very different for each gender in many species. Just like US.
Our arousal and desire patterns are different. This does not mean we are less sexual. We are equally as sexual.
