It's kind of like spandex pants. There are no hard and fast rules but some people should, and some people shouldn't.

And the vast majority of the time it's in the eye of the beholder. Some ladies got it and some couldn't hit it with a nuclear weapon

It's only a problem because the scientists aren't getting laid.

Shockingly, women enjoy sex.

Science still seems confused by this concept.

Honestly, I think hypersexuality is a problem in general.  No matter who.  There are certain people who spend an unhealthy amount of energy on looking for sex, getting sex, talking about sex, obsessing over sex, thinking about the sex other people are having and whether or not it's the approved form of sex... Not that sex is evil, mind you.  Perfectly healthy.  But when it's the sole focus of your life?  It's just... well, boring.

OK, so you like sex.  You're having sex.  Or you're not having sex and you want sex.  Every person of the appropriate gender is evaluated as a potential sex partner.  Your neighbor is having sex with someone you don't think they should be having sex with.  You're having sex that's unconventional, and you really wish other people would celebrate your sex.

Great.  Ummm... anything else in your life about which you might want to converse?

It is confusing because so few women want to have sex with scientists, so naturally this leads to the conclusion that they don't want to have sex with anybody.

Now that more women are getting into the hard sciences, they are confirming that yes they like sex, just not with any of their colleagues.

You do know the difference between a biatch and a slut, right?

//A biatch has sex with everybody but you

Curious as to what type of porn hypersexual German women are looking at.

i can tell this thread is going to get out of hand.  so this is definitely not a book mark for later.

I'd like to find these hypersexual women to conduct my own research on the topic...you know, for science.

How often is masturbating a lot for a woman? 3 or four times a day?  I know several who do daily usually at least and they seem pretty normal.

It might be a problem. If it existed. Like Bigfoot.

Uh.. isn't that all life that reproduces sexually? The main, overriding goal of their existence is farking? In all reality, the ONLY reason you exist is because all the billions of organisms that led to you farked as much as they could, and your only purpose on this planet is to fark some more? I would think the weird thing about humans as "higher life forms" is that we spend some time NOT thinking about sex.

Yeah that article is pretty useless without numbers. Are we talking once a week the dildo comes out or thirteen-year-old boy style and rubbing one out every fifteen minutes?

Porn is to blame for horny women being horny, and it couldn't possibly be anything to do with healthy women living in a country that doesn't stigmatize women for being horny?

Let me guess, it was a bunch of Pat Robertson University and Liberty University sociologists traveled to Germany trying to conduct research to support their conclusions.
[Reads article...] Holy crap, these were allegedly serious psychologists?  This is the worst nonsense masquerading as science I have ever seen outside of "Education" departments.  Okay, "Education" and "cultural anthro", but that it.

Women have the right to be as sick & disgusting as men are.


Encourage them, dammit.

Correlation != causation. It's more sensible to postulate that hypersexual women use more porn.

Are you guys really pretending there aren't unhealthy reasons for having sex? Some reasons that may better be served by seeking therapy?

Because that's all the article is saying.
 
2014-07-09 01:09:02 PM  
We should only work on this problem once we eliminate all of the stampeding purple elephants that are clogging up the freeways. We can only solve so many imaginary problems at once.

You mean there are other kinds?

LoneWolf343: Correlation != causation. It's more sensible to postulate that hypersexual women use more porn.

The results showed that the more frequently women masturbated or watched porn, the more likely they were to score high on the hypersexuality questionnaire.


Unless I missed it, this is all the article has to say about the relationship of porn and hypersexuality. No implication of causality.

Sure - but some people (not all, of course) are worse than that girl in the office who won't STFU about her new diet, and every damn conversation comes back to what she's eating and how other people eat and shouldn't.  It's great.   Glad you're happy.  Good thing to do.  But it's not the only thing in the world, OK?  It's not even unique.

Hey - I like sex as much as the next gal.  But there's more to my existence.

So women are becoming hypersexual and catching up to men's sex drives, what is the problem.  Just don't let them eat a wedding cake made for them, it kills sex drive.
