Shock Science: Women's Sex Drive Plummets As Soon As They're In A "Stable Relationship"

Gee, and I thought it was just that I was hopelessly inept in bed.

Yes, science has now proven what everybody already knew: Women have a "Golden Fortnight" of high sexual interest after the start of a relationship, and then would rather watch Murder, She Wrote than give up the nookie.

THE female sex drive starts sputtering to a halt as soon as a woman has got her man, according to a new study.

Researchers have found that women's libido plummets so rapidly when they believe they are in a secure relationship that after just four years the proportion of 30-year-old women wanting regular sex falls below 50 per cent.

There are few things that appear able to keep a woman sexually interested, the study found, but living apart for extended periods can help.

The findings for women contrast with those for men, whose sexual appetite hardly flagged at all up to 40 years after marriage.

The study, by researchers at Hamburg-Eppendorf University in Germany, challenges the popular image of modern women as equal to men in sexual appetite.

"Female motivation matches male sexual motivation in the first years of the partnership and then steadily decreases," concludes Dietrich Klusmann, the medical psychologist who conducted the study.

I'm always amused by women who claim they're just as into sex as guys. Ladies, if you only knew.

I'm also always amused by these idiotic pictures they run with sex-stories like this. If a story involves boobs, they show you big massive boobs, for example, just in case you don't know what a mommysac might look like.

Here, they helpfully provide models to help explain the story:

Models, mind you, not actors. Check out on that convincing furrowed brow on the dude. Why, his sexual frustration almost leaps right out of the computer, right into my pants.

Allah, again. I'm glad that Michelle won't let him put stories like this up. I get his cast offs.
