Document Summary

Sex drive strength of sexual motivation (intensity + frequency) Baumeister (2001) did a research on sex drive in men and women. 50% of men reported to thinking about sex everyday, whereas only 20% of women indicated the same. Premise: stronger sex drive = desire for more partners. Studies have asked men and women how many sexual partners they would like in the next two years. Infidelity is much higher for men than women. Survey results published in 1990 revealed that 45% of men and 15% of women masturbate at least once a week. There is a social element in these researches on sex when questions are raised because there are different pressures with males and females. Masturbation may not be as weird socially to report on. Premise: stronger sex drive = imitating sexual activity. Men are 3 times more likely to engage in sex than women are.
