Men and Sex — Jaffe Says Men are Getting Surprisingly Complicated

In an attempt to create gender equity by writing about men and sex, as I wrote about women and "asms",  Wednesday March 21st, I had a hard time coming up with some equally as interesting content. At least from my perspective, "What Do Men Really Want?" in the April 2012 Psychology Today quoted lots of research, noted the article was referring only to heterosexual men, and didn't say much that was new or startling. You'll need to judge for yourself from this shortened version. The full article apparently is only available in the full paper magazine. http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201203/what-do-men-really-want

What stood out to me first, were the four large photos of women in tight clothing and unusual poses ( 2 with bottoms up). They seemed in strange contrast to commentary in the story which suggests that men are now less interested in acrobatic sex with acrobatic women as one of several changes in men's behavior. Maybe I didn't get the purpose of the poses. I'd love another perspective from a man or woman reader.

The opening gambit in this article by Eric Jaffe, under the title states: "There's the stereotype. And there's the reality. But the reality about what men want in women and from women is getting more complex by the minute. Men and their motives — stop the presses! — are evolving."

Averring that men can be surprisingly complicated, ( sometimes they want to cuddle, enjoy chick flicks, and a good personality in a woman)
 underneath their apparent simplicity, ( they want women and sex), the writer didn't seem to substantiate his generalizations. Actually I'm feeling and thinking that this post about the boring article is also boring!

If you have found a newer, more intriguing or startling article, post, or research study on the topic of men and sex, please send it along or offer to write a guest post. I'm interested, I'm all for gender equity, and I like to know what's going on with men too.
