Women are more comfortable with their sexuality

Women would have fewer problems defining - and taking charge of - their sexuality and inclinations than men. According to evolutionary psychologist Dr Satoshi Kanazawa of the London School of Economics, women are more comfortable with their sexual preferences since they have had to deal with "polygamous marriages", as he explains in the publication Biological Reviews.

If the two genders - men and women - do not conform to a single sexual identity, Dr. Kanazawa has tried to explain why women are more versatile between homosexuality, heterosexuality or bisexuality to define themselves. “The theory suggests that women do not view sexual orientation in the same way as men,” explains the expert. Rather than being gay or not, what attracts women depends largely on their particular partner, their reproductive status and other circumstances. ”

To measure sexual orientation, the researcher noted that the brain and genital responses are "the most objective and precise" to define it. He distinguished three different aspects: non-exclusive, changing and variant, after studying the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health).

The findings measured the sexual orientation of young Americans in four different ways, with the study spanning 10 years. One stage measured sexual self-identification among a panel of definitions - 100% heterosexual, somewhat heterosexual, bisexual, somewhat homosexual, 100% homosexual - when participants were between 18 and 28 years old. In another step, participants were asked to describe their gender identity between the ages of 25 and 34, which allowed Dr. Kanazawa to construct measures of “adult sexual attraction”.

In the end, he found that women were more comfortable with their sexuality. The expert also found that girls who have fluid sexuality have more children and those who married and had children early have less fluid sexuality. "As friendships and alliances have advantages in reproduction, the sexual fluidity that allows such friendships and alliances in women is assumed to be an evolutionary selection," he concluded to explain how women forge strong bonds and alliances in their group.
