If you went to college, especially graduate school, you might actually think men and women think the same about sex or, for that matter, are the same except for societal influences. ALERT: We're not!
Yes, you can say most of the male species are pretty self-centered when it comes to sex. The cliché image of us rolling over afterwards is pretty much what we're bred to do. I saw it in the wilds of Africa, on my honeymoon, but in my marriage, I was instructed in what was expected.
And, joking aside, this is the key: communication. Given how different we are, it may come as a surprise to you women, but we can't read your minds. You, on the other hand, can read us (when it comes to sex) usually pretty easily, as we're simpletons, plus we're literally "out there." We, however, often need basic directions to operate you correctly.
I could write another blog with more graphic examples of our differences, but suffice it to say, men are overly visually stimulated while women are more emotionally turned on. Some men can get excited over just seeing a woman's appendage: literally the image of a leg, a little décolletage, or just a nice a**.
This simplicity often makes our women crazy, as we turn in gyrations at the sight of a woman in a skimpy outfit, but that is my point from the onset of this blog: we're built differently. But, what do I really know -- I'm just a guy.
