A Few Facts about Female Sexuality You May Not Know

Female sexuality is a lot less studied, analyzed and talked about than its male counterpart. When it comes to the scientific part of the above statement, we should not be surprised because it is way more complicated than the one of men. But also, it is still considered a taboo, at least in some societies, thus conversations and public discussions about the subject are limited, to say the least.

In this article, we are going to present a few facts in order to help readers understand some important aspects of female sexuality.

1) Female sexual desire was considered to be a disorder

Female SexualityUp until the 19th century, women who were not afraid or embarrassed to express having sexual urges were considered to be suffering from some sort of mental illness whose symptoms included presence of excessive amounts of vaginal fluids and fantasies about sex. Ironically, the suggested cure was massaging the area of the pelvis.

2) Women think about sex a lot

Contrary to popular belief, women also think about sex frequently. In fact, a recent poll showed that more than half of the women asked stated that they are having sex less than they would wish to. About 75% of them said that their ideal sex frequency is at least 2 times a week. If women don't get enough sex, they tend to start fantasizing about it, just like men.

3) Women are more likely to have gay sex

Last year, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology published a study according to which a big number of women are considered to be either bisexual or gay. This conclusion may seem to be very hard to believe, but it has a scientific explanation. According to the experts, this sexual fluidity of women is a product of evolution. In earlier societies, women who could form a relationship with other women had an advantage when it came to raising their children or defending themselves against oppressive males.

4) Size does not matter

Another poll published last year may have finally dissolved the misconception that the size of the male penis is the most important sexual factor for women. Almost all of the women participating in the poll said that the partner who knows how to please them is far more important than the actual size of his penis. In fact, being good in the sack rarely correlates to the size of the penis. Statistically, an average size that most men have is absolutely enough to satisfy 85 percent of women.
