Your sex life is good hell, it may be great. Initiating sex usually falls on you. Why do some women hardly ever make the first move, and how should you bring up your desire? Nicole Prause, a sex psychophysiologist and neuroscientist and who studies arousal and orgasmssuggests the disparity may be less about traditional societal biases and more about the fact that women get aroused differently than men — and may need a little help getting started. Family therapist Jill Whitney agrees. Women are reporting less inhibition and more confidence when it comes to initiating sex, and up to 72 percent of college-aged men say they prefer that. Studies across cultures consistently conclude that women have lower sex drives compared to men, and some show that long-term relationships can deplete this drive even further. Some of the most fundamental differences between male and female arousal may be biological. Research shows that men tend to have more spontaneous sex drives because they are motivated by higher levels of testosterone.
