Is it men or women who are more lustful? Who is more lecherous, men or women?

Friends often ask why my husband has such a strong desire for sex? Why is my wife always unsatisfied? Why does he/she always lack sexual interest? Why do these thoughts come up? Who, in the end, has a stronger sex drive – men or women? Let’s take a look.


Men and women have different physical characteristics, on the whole men are usually faster and women slower. Men perform more quickly than women in terms of erecting and quickly reaching climax and ejaculating. This difference between men and women leads to people mistakenly thinking that men have stronger sex drives; this feeling is very common among young couples.

Who has stronger sex drive

Are men or women more sexually driven? Such a statement oversimplifies the situation – it really depends on the period of time.

30 years old and below: After adulthood, male sexual ability increases constantly until they reach their peak around 30 years old. Erection happens quickly, pleasure is strong and climax arrives easily with re-arousal not far behind. Women are usually shy, reserved and embarrassed during this period which makes it seem like men have much stronger desire than them.

30-40 years old: Male sexual ability slowly decreases but control over sexual performance increases as they can better understand how to satisfy their partners to reach climax together. Along with social development, people’s understanding towards sex changes increasingly; the period for competition grows shorter and shorter.

40-50 years old: Male drives decrease even further while female libidos increase to their peak; “forty like tigers” refers to this particular period – can you fight the tiger?

50-60 years old: Male needs continue to decline while female needs decline due to physiological factors such as menstrual cycles ending leading to decreased ovarian function. During this time males possess clear advantage over females in terms of sexual desire.

60 years old and above: Both sides’ sexual functions decline but desires remain although they only engage in limited amounts of intercourse. Some can maintain intercourse into their 70s or 80s with extremely rare cases going even further beyond that age range; most females become passive during this stage requiring significantly more time for arousal resulting in great burden for some people who experience this issue; those who do experience these issues should use lubricants instead of blaming each other for negative effects on marital relationships.

Conclusion: Emotions, age, affection, drinking, smoking, medication, illness, visual information processing speed , audio information processing speed , tactile information processing speed , olfactory information processing speed , attention span , memory recall etc all affect a person’s libido level . There is no absolute winner or loser when it comes to comparing two sexes’ libido levels . Knowing different stages’ body needs between genders instead of blaming each other helps foster positive marital relationships
