Human Sexuality

Filed under: North America,Psychology of Sexuality — Admin @ 11:23 pm

Which of the above definitions of sex/sexuality most fit you? While those two definitions are, of course, gross exaggerations, they contain significant truth, even today.

Women have received more negative training and sexual education about their human sexuality than men. To have a primary belief that one’s human sexuality is serious first and pleasurable a distant second causes the loss of much pleasure in many sexual processes.

That sexuality belief also leads to much putting down of men for their “frivolous” sex behavior, not just because of serious consequences that men might be overlooking but because “human sex should be serious and you men don’t treat it seriously enough.” In other words, to be lusty, wild or playful is not OK human sexuality.


Men and Sex

What the headline should read is “What Men Need to Know About Women and Sex.” That’s what this area covers, ladies and gentlemen. So, if you are a woman wanting to know about men and sex, head over here.

Alright guys, they’re gone now. Let’s get down to the details.

When I originally started putting the site together, I read a lot of information about how men had a difficult time getting in touch with their feelings (and how women want men to be more intimate (in the way they want them to be intimate). Then there’s sexual technique and sexual performance.


Women and Sex

I know it says “women and sex.” This area, though, is really for women who want to know more about men and sex. This is our little insight into how you guys work.

If you’re a man and you want to know how we women work, go to men and sex. I’m happy to clue you in.

Now that “they’re” gone ladies, here are a few truths about men. Many of us “older” ladies have probably already figured this out, but for you younger ones…


The Psychology of Sex

VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED: Language on this site is sexual in nature. Not recommended for younger or sensitive viewers.
I’m Krista. Welcome to The Psychology of Sex website for both women and men.

I don’t know about you, but I used to have very mixed feelings about sex and/or a relationship with someone else. When I was in counseling, my therapist would say this is normal for everyone. “Sometimes you want it, sometimes you don’t,” she’d say.

Then I’d chime in: “and sometimes you want it with someone else and other times, you’re better off alone.”


Emotional Programming To “Fall in Love”

Most of us emerged from childhood
believing that romantic love is a natural phenomenon.
When we ‘fall in love’, we seem to be possessed
by an irresistible passion, filling our hearts.
So, how could these romantic feelings be a cultural creation,
invented only 800 years ago?

Before the Middle Ages, some people probably experienced
exaggerated, fantasy feelings close to what we now call “romantic love”.
But such accidental eruptions of personal, deluded feelings
did not become the passion of the masses
until the French troubadours refined and spread the emotional game of love.


The Love Hate Flip-Flop

One of Freud’s early disciples, Melanie Klein, took up the task of applying the techniques of psychoanalysis to children. She considered her work a natural extension of Freud’s theories, rather than any sort of innovation in psychoanalysis; still, she met considerable criticism from her psychoanalytic colleagues. And rightly so, for her work is characterized by speculative and fantastic explanations of, well, infant fantasy.

Nevertheless, Klein did bring to light the “ugly” side of infant development, for she saw in infants a mass of angry and hostile impulses toward the mother when the infant did not get its needs met. In essence, the infant constantly flip-flops between love and hate: love when its needs are met, and hate when its needs are ignored or frustrated. In her work, Klein tried to explain the process by which the infant seeks to repair the damage of its hostility to its mother. In fact, the titles of two of her most significant collections of works, Envy and Gratitude and Love, Guilt, and Reparation, tell the story almost as well as the writings themselves.


Fear of Love

Believe it or not, most of us are brought up in modern culture to fear love. This is a radical statement, so pause a bit and consider it.

How often were you, as a child, criticized and laughed at for expressing your honest feelings? How often are you now used, in our culture of merchandising, as an object to be manipulated in order to satisfy some other person’s desire for profit and power? How often do you shape yourself—with diets, implants, workouts, jewelry, tattoos, makeup, hair dye, and clothing—to meet the expectations of someone’s desire?


What is Love?

Most persons don’t realize this, but the common, or popular, view of love involves an element of receiving something. “I love chocolate” really means that “I enjoy getting the experience of the taste of chocolate.” Similarly, “I love you” commonly implies “I enjoy touching your body,” or “I enjoy believing that you will give me security or protection,” or “I enjoy having sex with you” (or “I want to have sex with you.” As a result, Lacan, in his teachings about love, described the typical act of love as “polymorphous perversion.”

‘Men’s Guide to Women’ Ebook Explains Male-Female Behavior Patterns and Frustrations in Dating and Marriage

Filed under: North America,Psychology of Sexuality — Admin @ 10:11 pm

We currently have quite a social dilemma when millions of American gentlemen are wondering ‘why women treat them like they do’ and single women are saying “Where are all the real men?” With the ‘Mens Guide to Women’ eBook however, ‘nice guys’ can be more successful with women, giving women what they want and possibly preventing divorce.

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 11, 2005 — If men in our society today could understand why they are so confused in the first place and understand a more natural paradigm of relating to women, they could experience greater success in dating, marriage and life while gaining more respect from women.

Today millions of American men with a lot to offer are getting rejected by single women even before they approach her. Instead, many American women will fall for ‘bad boys’, ‘jerks’ or ‘narcissists’ while we have a new byproduct called the ’40 year old virgin’.

Long term relationships and marriages are failing more today than ever before in history. The United States has the highest divorce rate in the world, hovering around 50%.

Money is not the true root of divorce. There is a deeper explanation grounded in behavioral psychology that our society has overlooked because of our inability to see the forest from the trees. Rion Williams asks, “How can I have natural success with women and dating outside the U.S., but always have problems just ‘meeting women’ in the U.S.?”

In answering, he has observed and studied social psychology, theocracy, biology, history and cultural differentiation for over a decade to finally discover ‘what women want’ as well as essentially solving the frustration of ‘great guys’ and ‘good catches’ to experience more fulfilling and balanced ‘dating’ lives.

Rion has put this universal insight into a 352 page downloadable eBook entitled “Men’s Guide to Women” available for $47. For more information on how men can respectfully claim their own clarity and power back while giving women what they want, just visit
