Study: What Women Really Want — The Effect of Women’s Cycle on Preferences for Male Behavior

(Neuroscience) In the past, there has been much excitement over research that purported to show a link between changes in a woman’s cycle and how attracted she was to men behaving in different ways. However, research at the University of Göttingen using the largest sample size to date questions these results. The new research showed that shifts in women’s cycles did not affect their preferences for men’s behaviour. The researchers found, however, that when fertile, women found all men slightly more attractive and, irrespective of their hormone cycle, flirtier men were evaluated as being more attractive for sexual relationships but less attractive for long-term relationships. The results were published in Psychological Science.

The Five Most Desirable Male Entities Used in Female Pornography, According to Google

Psychologically, archetypes have an instinctual or biological aspect, wherein certain drives are “hardwired” in the human psyche, such as the desire to survive, to love and be loved, and to seek out joy and play. Within human sexuality, there are ancient drives that influence both men and women.

Controversial Review of The Female Orgasm Suggests a New Role For The Clitoris

(Justin Deschamps) Sex is arguably one of the most ancient and important activities human beings engage in. And yet, there is almost no serious research done about it. In particular, we know very little about the orgasm and what all the various effects are on human consciousness, at least in the mainstream. The following study explores a new perspective on the female orgasm, which at one time was considered completely vestigial.
