Hot abd bothered
Globe and Mail ^ | February 27, 2009 | Anne McIlroy

"You meet the real-estate agent outside the building. The agent is a handsome man with a firm handshake. He shows you the empty apartment. You sense that he finds you attractive. You are distracted by his gorgeous smile and ask him to repeat the features of the kitchen a third time. 'Can we delay this?' you ask, 'I'm a bit distracted.' He smiles, knowing exactly why you are so distracted. You take his hand and pull him close, and kiss him. He hesitates, and then kisses you back. You run your hands over his broad back, feeling his muscular form through his suit, then strip off his jacket. You lean into his hard chest, pushing your breasts against him. You unbuckle his belt and slide your hand down, his eyes astonished and breath coming in gasps."

This could be from the script for a porn flick, but it is part of one of several tape-recorded stories that psychologist Meredith Chivers asked women to listen to in her most recent experiment exploring the nature of the female sexual response.

The 36-year-old Queen's University assistant professor is already garnering international attention from the media and in scholarly circles for documenting how women can be physically aroused by a wide variety of sexual imagery but not feel any lust or desire. Her innovative approach has made her a major player in her field; she is charting new territory in the understanding of the disconnect that can occur between the vagina and brain.

Guilty, but with a better hairdo and without the glasses, maybe not proven?

“....understanding of the disconnect that can occur between the vagina and brain...”

I’ve researched this for years. There is no answer or understanding.

I think that explains Obama's popularity.

The disconnect that between the vagina and the brain? It’s called a woman.

We're going to get a lot more of these useless studies now that Obama is spending gobs of money on "universal" college education.

38 year old hags doing an infinite amount of research on "sexuality" will become VERY common.

Oh please the woman should be fined or in jail for releasing private sessions to anyone.

She demeans the profession and her work is not ground breaking - any first year Psych student has covered the “new” information and moved on.

Evidently she is in need of counseling herself (or financial assistance).

"Maybe it makes sense for women's sexual motivation not to be so connected to their physical response,"

Unlike men, women only have one head to think with.

Actually, I read the article and thought it was very interesting and not useless at all.

As a man who has been married to the same women for almost thirty years, I find it still a mystery, at times the way my wife thinks about sex.

Dollars to donuts almost every man could say the same thing to a degree

Read post 8. Sometimes the etiology is inscrutable. No need to keep wasting tons of money revealing the same condition over and over again. . IMO.

I’ve been married to the same “women” for 27 years. I often wonder how many too. They all look the same...but they sure don’t act the same and you never know which one is going to be there when you get home!

That's exactly why I had to get out of real estate.

My ex-husband (who continues to be a dear friend) sent me this article and asked me to explain it, as he knows I can verbalize such things well. It seemed perfectly comprehensible and straightforward to me. I did try to explain it to him, with some success.

Let me help you out - you’re not seeing it.
WomAn is singular.
WomEn is plural.
Just as man is singular and men is plural.

Many people need some help with this distinction, and with usage of apostrophes, and other basic grammar and spelling rules.

Lots of guys ... not lot’s of guys.

Lots of guys have been married, not has been married.

Wives, not wifes.

That turned me on — I don’t know if it was the article, the ping or the opportunity to correct a man’s grammar.

Of course, this is just my keyboard talking, and it tells lies about arousal.

Sorry to tell you, but just switching jobs is not going to rid you of this problem. For some men (like myself for example) this is just one of the many crosses you have to bear in life.

Thanks for the free lesson in grammar, but I really do not need it.

Yes, I admit I made grammar errors in my post by using the wrong word. Women for woman, wifes for wives. I saw it after a couple of comments to me.

I swear I didn't mean to do it. DO NOT SEND THE GRAMMAR POLICE. I repeat DO NOT SEND THE GRAMMAR POLICE. I WILL NOT ANSWER THE DOOR

Really, it was my fingers fault, they didn't type the words flowing from my brain correctly. Since I was unaware I was being graded by my fellow FReepers, I thought it was not really important to respond to them.

I will know better next time.

Thanks, It's interesting how people even anonymously are driven to make a point which in the long run are small and petty

Life is far too short.

In my work I tend to run everything I write though a grammar checker (Microsoft grammar checker sucks, BTW) and spell check because I have a hard time correctly type what I think. I always leave out words or use the wrong tense when using a PC

When I used to actually write down my thoughts on paper, (I know an old and archaic process), I rarely make a mistake as I was trained to write my thoughts on paper and not type my thoughts.

As a teenager growing up in Ottawa and Trenton, she says, she always felt comfortable talking about sexual matters. She once drew a diagram of the v***a to show a shy male friend how to find the c******s.

"It was in religion class. I pointed everything out. It was a public education opportunity."
