Your Gender Doesnt Matter In Sexual Arousal, Says Study

For as long as most of us can remember, it’s been believed that men and women are simply wired differently when it comes to sexuality and sexual arousal. However, according to a new study, this isn’t true. At all.

The stereotype looks something like this: men like to read Playboy or Hustler and watch porn, while women are more likely to get turned on by a steamy romance novel with a Fabio-like hunk on the cover — or perhaps even by a romantic cuddling session with their bae on the couch.

Hold that thought before you, too, get a little frisky. As revealed in a new study by the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (and published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal), men and women aren’t really that different when it comes to our tastes or responses to sexy stimuli.

In examining whether men and women are all that different in terms of sexual arousal, a meta analysis of 61 previous studies conducted by researchers delivered somewhat surprising results.

As the members of the research group write: “[These results] offer strong quantitative evidence that the neuronal response to visual sexual stimuli, contrary to the widely accepted view, is independent of biological sex.”

Meaning, we all kind of get off on the same things.

Beyond that, Dr. Hamid Noori of the Max Planck Institute argues that while men and women may see similar brain responses to arousing video or images, they still respond in very different ways.

“There are differences in behavior — the number of men going to porn sites is roughly 80% of the consumers,” Noori said. “But men and women respond the same way at the brain level to visual sexual stimuli. What we do with it afterwards is what brings the difference.”

There is one caveat to keep in mind, however. This study relies on meta analysis — or rehashing and reorganizing the results of previous research — rather than original laboratory or field experimentation. Basically, no new physical or medical tests were conducted in order to look for, or isolate, a specific variable or behavior.

Also, as Noori points out, the scans are unable to see brain activity at the most microscopic levels, meaning that there is still a stark possibility that men and women may actually show different reactions to sexy and provocative stimuli.

Still, the broad concept of men being much more turned on by skin mags and hardcore porn while women are more interested in getting their thrills from corny romance novels may be more than a little outdated.

All this, despite what PornHub demographics and the success of “50 Shades of Grey” might suggest.
