Men are surprisingly touchy-feely when it comes to sex.

Men are surprisingly touchy-feely when it comes to sex.

Male sexuality tends to be equated with unlimited drive and a constant hunger for more. Recent research suggests this myth needs to be laid to rest. Dr. Lehmiller breaks down the results of a recent study published in the Journal of Sex Research in which researchers surveyed men about the factors influencing their sexual desire. The results showed that vulnerable feelings play a big role. Men want to feel desired, they seek spontaneity and novelty, they desire emotional intimacy, and fear rejection. Sex may not operate so differently between men and women after all.
