If my neighbors husband walked down the street naked, it wouldn't do anything for me. If my neighbor walk down the street naked, few men could keep their eyes off her and would probably stand to attention if you know what I mean. She has breast implants, need I say more.

See, I would notice. As would most of the women I know.

And, if a man was walking down the street naked, I would SURELY take notice. Unless, of course, he was a dirty, nasty specimen.

Yes, I think it's fairly common knowledge that most men are more visual than most women, and that they're wired that way. It ain't necessarily such a bad thing, though.

I guess that depends on the person. I personally feel sex with no regard for emotion a disgusting thing. I believe men have a hard time combining the two. They are wired so the physical part is primary and the emotional is secondary. Women are just the opposite.

Think about the married couples you have seen complaining about the breakdown of their marriage. The wife has a long laundry list, usually starting with they never talk anymore, he never helps around the house, so on and so forth, her list could be a book, all the man has to say is she never has sex with him anymore.

Just how is a relationship between two people wired like that supposed to work?

But see remember human are animals. It is natural for animal to have sex with no emotion. Why should human act different from this?

You might believe people are animals in this sense but I do not. We have brains, we can stop and think rather then relying purely in physical impulses.

Are you sure animals don't have emotions when they have sex, then what is all the dominance about, but a hormone driven emotion. Just like a bunch of teenagers.

Seen any National Geographic lately?

No I haven't read all the other posts, this just struck me as inaccurate.

I would notice but not in a sexual way, I would probably think to myself what an idiot he was or is he drunk or something like that. It would not cause any attraction on my part though.

I read this as you saying that the way that men are wired is disgusting to you.

Somehow they do work, most of the time.

I'm sorry but I simply don't dislike men enough to buy into someone's theory that they are inherently disgusting creatures.

I just flashed on being in line at the grocery store several years ago at the end of summer when the college kids were just coming back to town and a couple of baby faced boys were behind me. A girl that was so pretty that even straight old me noticed her walked by, and one of the boys looked at her, caught my eye, and blushed. She wasn't dressed in a revealing way; she was simply young and gorgeous.

I was glad when I saw her smile back at the blushing boy.

I also remember years ago when my own blushing boy asked me in a very tentative voice if he was "cute". He was eight years old then. I thought..."ah, some little chickadee on the playground is making him wonder about himself". I told him yes, that he was "cute", and watched with joy as he grew to be so much more than that over the years.

It's just life, this way we are wired. It really can be beautiful if we allow it be so.

How can you say relationships between men and women work most of the time when the divorce rate is over 50% now? I heard 57% the other day on TV but don't have a source to prove that.

Do you know how many marriages end because the male is wrapped up in infedility or porn?? Are you aware that while women cheat they do it to get general attention but give up the sex to get it while men are just looking for just SEX??

I do find the way men are wired disgusting. I can't respond to someone who looks at me as just another chance to have sex or a man who has spread it around so much he can't count the number of women he has been with.
