    Default What Women Want (Maybe)...

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/12/fa...pagewanted=all

    “You go along in life looking for that one person,” said Ms. Ouzoonian, 29. “The genitals shouldn’t really matter that much.”

    That statement is decades ahead of its time.



    But anyway, this research intrigues me. I don't presume to take it as truth for every woman but jeez, Kinsey said sexuality was a continuum and not an either or, why is this research reproving what we should all already know? I must admit though, I'm quite jealous. Being attracted to sensuality instead of genitalia seems very... evolved.

    I'm just gonna go sit and think about a world, where people could shamelessly fall in love with the person they like or their best friend, is like.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    *goes on about how the vast majority of gender differences are fabrications invented by our still recovering-from-self-imposed-totalitarianism society blah blah blah*

    Long story short. - The concept of our society,even those strange rare humans that exist in myths and are often referred to as "women," developing a common behavior of judging all their potential lovers without regard body-specific sexual standards. - It Will Never Happen.

    Now for the lies to begin pouring in.

    On another note: Bisexuality being more prevalent in women? I can believe that easily. Simply because of, my personal opinion that, there's a the physical shape difference between a man and a woman; in which the man's form isn't nearly as automatically sexually expressed as a woman's form is; and thus is more likely to attract a sexual response that can lead to developing curiosity and then realized bisexuality for women.

    Good article Steal. I didn't even know of Kinsey's conclusion before.

    So heterosexual women are really more bisexual and multispecial than we assumed. This is both new news and explains a lot

    I personally see it as a double-edged sword- some may consider it a blessing and others a curse. From a biological perspective, evolutionary biologists have this to add to their plate of headscratchers.

    The bi movement really has been growing a lot in the last few years. I don't necessarily see that part of the forecast as especially far in the future, or even past the current decade to be frank.

    I think it's because women being bisexul or homosexual is more accepted in society than gay guys.

    That's true. In reality there are a lot of gay people, more than I knew. And it scared me.

    Also people of the same sex probably know what their partner wants and how to react to their feelings.

    I blame MTV.

    No really, girl on girl is less threating in the US, than two guys. I think porn has something to do with that.

    I find this perfectly reasonable. I can't see why anyone would consider naked men arousing in the first place.

    Woah. Another marker of human evolution.

    Great article. Being attracted to both sexes doesn't bother me much. What bothers me is polygamy(for both sexes). I just don't want to see my woman being held by another man (but by another woman, that's another issue if I can join. hehehe)

    Sorry, but I'd definitely prefer looking at a naked man to random landscapes any day. Does that mean I'm not a heterosexual woman? :/

    Well, it'd explain the love for gay men. Steal, I understand now! =P

    ...but seriously, to some degree that's true, yet at the same time I think it goes a little too far in generalizing women. It's one thing to be turned on by "sexuality"; it's another to then assume that women could actually perform sexual acts with another woman. For me, hugging another female makes me really uncomfortable, and not in an aroused way; to even think of going farther makes me feel physically ill. It's like they jumped to the conclusion that because it's true for some women, it's true that every woman is capable of making out with another woman and being turned on. Or at least that's what I got out of it.
