- Interesting approval
Our culture has given women in general and women's sexuality in particular the set of attractive qualities - hidden depths, mysterious, fascinating ambiguity. With men, it seems, everything is much clearer: they are simple creatures who need sex, food and sleep
Dreams: how to understand our dreams
(and sometimes - football and beer). A male sexuality - it's all easy. But this is misleading.
When it comes to sex, a man thought to the genitals, and to entice him enough to expose the most appetizing body. Approximately such representations are prevalent in today's society, and hear from the man the words "I need not only sex," many women greatly surprised, and sometimes is referred to such a man, "unreal." In reality, male sexuality is no less complex than the female; they are also influenced by hormones, and they too familiar fears and insecurities related to sexuality.
What makes a man a man
You can not talk about male sexuality
Nine ways to experience their sexuality
Without discussing testosterone - the hormone that makes men men literally. The fact is that although the child's sex is determined at fertilization, to a certain point in the embryo are rudimentary male and female sexual organs - Wolff channel and Mullerian duct. If the embryo has a Y-chromosome, then under the influence of testosterone Wolff channel develops in the male genitalia.
At that testosterone does not stop: at puberty its level in the blood of young men rise, and as a result the voice becomes lower, increases muscle mass, the body start to grow hair, penis and testicles (which are beginning to actively produce testosterone) become larger. Testosterone regulate the hypothalamus and pituitary. Curiously, even less than a hundred years ago about testosterone nobody knew. Farmers millennia ago it was known that castration does pet sterile and less aggressive, but they did not know what was going on is something of a single substance. A molecule of testosterone was discovered in the 1930s, and a few years later, the synthesized hormone learned and use it as a medicine.
Testosterone affects not only the appearance. Griffin Hensberi, who several years ago changed his sex from female to male, said that after the first injection of testosterone noticed significant changes: he has not only dramatically increased libido, but suddenly developed an interest in science - for example, he began to understand the physics , but I had not understood it at all. Of course, we should not give it just testosterone, but it is undeniable that the hormone somehow affects all spheres of life of the men.
Male sexuality stimulate visual images
This - not just a common myth, but a proven fact. In one study, subjects were offered to men and women for some time to look at erotic pictures. After this test is approximately the same degree of excitement evaluated its own, however, strengthen the brain activity - especially in the amygdala, there were just men. (Amygdala - a part of the limbic system, which is associated with emotions, in particular - with anticipation.) In addition, studies show that when women are better than men can distinguish colors, men better notice the small details, as well as moving objects. In general, on average, men are more attentive to detail, and partly so often happens that a woman they are attracted to something quite specific - the legs, for example, or the chest.
If men attach great importance to visual detail, it is not surprising that they are important parts of his own body - or rather, one particular item
. Despite the fact that numerous polls show that only a small proportion of women penis size is a critical characteristic of a partner, and only 25% of women get an orgasm directly during intercourse (for comparison, from oral sex orgasm gets 81% of women) - men very concerned about penis size
. They worry about it no matter how many women will tell them that nothing to worry about
. Even celebrities are worried about the size
. Meanwhile, the average length of the penis is from about 12
. 7 cm to 15
. 3 See: dimensioned suit most women, particularly if the man in the bed is able to use other parts of the body
. Despite this, most men would like to increase their penis, and many sincerely believe that there is no limit to perfection: the larger it is, the better
Menopause - a time when women's sexuality is undergoing significant change, and until recently it was thought that such a test appears only on the proportion of women. However, this is not true: men of a certain age starts reducing the production of testosterone, but it manifests itself not so much as the reduction in estrogen levels
Estrogen - the key to bone health
among women. An analogue of menopause called andropause in men, and its symptoms - the weakening of libido, fatigue, lack of interest in work or hobbies, mood swings
Mood swings in women - bad character or a disease?
, A gradual decrease in muscle mass - is often considered normal signs of aging.
Doctors note that the sudden decline in testosterone can occur in younger men and sometimes - for unclear reasons, and sometimes - due to a genetic predisposition, diabetes, or taking opium derivatives. In some cases, low testosterone levels does not manifest itself, sometimes it causes symptoms similar to symptoms of depression. In any case, sooner or later the lack of testosterone affect the male sexuality that can be fraught with various psychological problems.
