Friends often ask why my husband is so sexually driven? Why is my wife always unsatisfied? Why can’t he/she get aroused anymore? What are these thoughts even about? Who has a stronger sex drive, the male or female? Let’s find out.
Male and female physical characteristics are different, generally speaking men are fast and women are slow. Men will quickly become aroused and reach climax rapidly, while it may take women 10-15 minutes or more to become aroused and reach climax. This difference leads people to mistakenly believe that men have stronger sex drives, which is common in younger couples.
Who Has The Stronger Sex Drive
Do men have a stronger sex drive than women? This statement is too general and doesn’t necessarily reflect reality; it depends on the period of time.
30 years old or younger: After reaching adulthood, male sexual capacity increases continuously until 30 when their sexual needs peak with fast arousal, intense pleasure and quick refractory periods after climaxing. Women tend to be shy, restrained and embarrassed during this age range, making their desires much less apparent than those of men.
30-40 years old: Male sexual capacity slowly decreases but their ability to control ejaculation increases allowing them to satisfy a woman’s needs more easily. Women finally overcome mental obstacles learn how to make themselves reach climax more easily as well. During this period it is a competition between both sexes to see who has the stronger desires; with society’s development people’s understanding of sexuality changes quickly meaning this competition happens sooner than expected.
40-50 years old: Male desire continues to decrease however they have more experience satisfying women easily now due to the “forty like tiger” saying referring to this period where women reach their peak desire before slowing down significantly; do you think you can beat a tiger though?
50-60 years old: Men continue decreasing in desire while women enter menopause with fewer hormones leading to decreased desires; during this time males have an obvious advantage in terms of who has the strongest desires.
60+ years old: Both sexes’ sexual capabilities decline however they still possess some level of desire which few can maintain all the way into their 70s or 80s; for most females this becomes burdensome as it takes multiple times longer for them to achieve arousal or orgasm than males at this age range (notably due a lack of lubrication).
Conclusion: Emotional state, age, feelings, alcohol consumption, smoking habits, drugs taken, illnesses present , visual stimuli , auditory stimuli , tactile stimulus , smell stimulation , attention span , memory etc all influence one’s sex drive . There is no absolute answer as to who has the stronger drive ; understanding both sexes need throughout different ages requires different approaches otherwise there will be resentment towards each other damaging the relationship
