According to the book,men want an average of 14 sexual partners in their lifetime. Women want one or two.
Louann says: Its postcoital narcolepsy. During orgasm,males release a huge amount of oxytocin in their brains,and it is very sedating. Its not that he doesnt love you.
4 Men lie more about sex
Biologically speaking,men are more comfortable lying to the opposite sex.
5 Foreplay round the clock
In case of women,foreplay is everything that happens in the 24 hours before intercourse. For men its what happens three minutes before entry
Louann says: The male brains initial emotional reaction can be stronger than the female. But within 2.5 seconds his face changes to hide the emotion,or even reverse it.
The expert doesnt reckon her book justifies bad behaviour. She says: This is not giving men an excuse to rape and pillage. But men do have a right to give voice to their biological predisposition and have it come in to the dialogue.
