Male Myth: Men Want More Sex Than Women Do
Hordes of horny women beg to differ. It's not that women don't crave a good romp, it's just that the mechanics of getting turned-on are a little more complicated for women than those of a man. "When a man wants to have sex, it's the only thing on his mind. For a woman, the libido tends to be more easily distracted—say, by laundry—and is cyclical during the month," explains Parrott. For men to get more time in bed with their wives and girlfriends (or to just be generally considerate human beings), they should try simply separating whites from darks and loading the dishwasher. The payoff is well worth it.
