Why Women Really Have Sex

“The reasons women have sex — from pleasure and intimacy to revenge and competition to self-loathing and sheer boredom and beyond — are as complex as the female sex itself, as the new book Why Women Have Sex: The Psychology of Sex in Women’s Own Voices reveals in juicy detail,” writes Sheila Marikar of ABC News.

“The book reads like a clinical version of “Sex and the City.” Drawing from five years of research and an online survey of 1,000 women, University of Texas psychologists Cindy Meston and David Buss splice anonymous first-person anecdotes of women discussing sex with academic musings on how evolution, society and biology all play into female sexual desire,” Marikar says.
