    Unlike you, many do though. Slut shaming is everywhere.
    Meh, I dont really have an opinion on that unless you're talking about guys who purely think about pulling 24/7 then yes. They need to chill.
    perhaps but are yeh really after a lad whos that picky..bit freaky tbh..controlling

    id say these days probably better to do as yeh like and then just pick a non overly judgemental lad easy as..

    dont care if lads are very active..just think most lads will never be able to fulfil their sexual wants so accepting the situation and finding fun in other things is better

    Not all women have lower sex drives than men though...
    Agreed. There's too much generalization on TSR

    The easiest way to prove this is that there arn't many male prostitutes compared to female ones. There just isn't the demand for them.

    What puzzles me is why this should be such a big deal? Whenever someone mentions that men, on average, have higher sex drives than women, it causes outrage.

    But why?

    Surely it's a good thing that females have lower sex drives. It certainly isn't something to get angry about.

    Men and women are biologically different. So why wouldn't this shape behaviour?
    That doesn't prove it at all to me, that speaks that there are bigger social stigmas. I know that a guy using a prostitute isn't that accepted, but its certainly more heard for than male prostitutes (hence why you immediately came to that conclusion). Personally I would feel embarrassed, because as a girl its expected that you would never be as sexually driven that you would feel the need to buy sex - you know, the age-old problem of men being supposed to do that chasing (because they want the sex) and women getting to be picky (because they're not as bothered) that is always complained about on TSR. People not accepting that women's sexual appetites can be just as large as men is the reason why there are less male prostitutes - because of fear of the social stigma.

    No chance. 1% at absolute most in this country. Its just not a normal thing to do.

    The weird ****ers of TSR are not a good proxy for the male populace of the country. 90% of men don't have a problem finding willing sexual partners, the others just have to get by on porn.

    I certainly don't know anyone ****ed in the head enough to visit a prostitute.
    with the amount of swearing its clear whos messed up in his head.

    secondly statistics show its roughly 10% doesnt surprise me in the slightest.

    many men struggle to find willing sexual partners..especially when theyre anyway picky..on their state..morals..looks..enviroment etc

    not advocating prostitution at all but being ignorant to it is another thing

    have a nice day

    Obviously it's 'on average'. Nobody would think that every man has a higher sex drive than every woman.

    Yep it's probably fine in real life but not with just anyone. The main problem is there's no backing out for a man even if the relationship turns emotionally abusive etc but women can initiate a divorce whenever they like for no reason. That's the divorce laws.

    I'd get married in all but name, it's the legal bits which worry me.
    generally women have the power yes

    in general theyd find it easier to come out of a marriage and find a man

    however the aim should be for the main to have decent relationship full stop

    theres more risk with a man in marriage but lets get over it and accept it already..cant change

    us men moan about lads who are "pussies" or "homo" even at times but we cant accept our situations and get on with it

    Women have equal if not higher sex drives than men. They just generally talk about it less. In my experience the shy quiet girls are pretty crazy behind closed doors

    It is true. But the slut shaming can be overboard at times.

    Lol these threads are stupid because it descends into men trying to show off about how much sex they are having, so they try to say that women have an equal sex drive to men.

    Meanwhile, the social research studies overwhelmingly suggest that men have higher sex drives.

    The whole concept of slut-shaming has drove you to believe that women have lower sex drives when in reality, the risk of judgement for even having one is still prominent in society.

    If you have a problem with hearing naughty words, that says more about you than about anyone else.

    Except, no they don't. There are indeed hundreds of studies that show that men feel pressured into exaggerating their sex drive and women feel pressured into downplaying theirs... But that's not the same thing at all.

    Classic teenage TSRism by the way, if anyone disagrees with your POV, don't address the argument, just make out that they must be lying/showing off, because clearly, that's what you would do if you were in that situation.

    I have addressed the point by highlighting that studies have suggested that men have higher sex drives.

    If you read through the thread, you will indeed see that men were doing just what I said. One person's subjective experience obviously isn't a good piece of evidence to use anyway, so it is a poor line of reasoning to take.

    This isn't true I don't think. Women want sex just as much as men do.

    The difference is how they become aroused.

    So with respect to masturbation, do you think women do it as frequently as men?

    I'm sure some people would argue that, but I don't see how it could possibly be true on average.

    From what I have read, yes. They are just less likely to admit to it.

    And before you ask, yes a lot of women watch porn as well.

    I think you buy into social conditioning too much. Girls have higher sex drives but are socially conditioned to repress it and obey society.
