Real Cougars, here's a question for you to think about. Is a successful and career driven woman more likely to have a higher sex drive than her lesser-achieving sisters?
If you are a woman working in a competitive environment, like banking or business, you may well become more assertive, competitive and aggressive, which will cause your testosterone levels to rise. But then the questions becomes - did you go into a male dominated career because you had high testosterone levels, or did you develop high testosterone levels because you chose that particular career path? The sexperts are still trying to figure that one out.
The root of a woman's sexual desire is still pretty much a mystery. Does it start in our bodies or in our brains? A landmark research project by Dr Rosemary Basson from the University of British Columbia found that while men feel desire and then want to have sex, many women have sex as a way to kick-start desire.
Research into female sexuality is still controversial, contradictory and incomplete. The researchers may not agree with each other, but they do agree about this. Understanding female desire may turn out to be as tough as understanding anything about what makes a woman tick. Amen to that one!
