It should be noted that in the Reid, Elliot and Webber study, neither men or women seem to be particularly happy with NSA sex, but women are less happy.
When women have sex, oxytocin gets released because of the evolutionary drive to attach to someone who may be the potential father of a possible child. Of course, being higher order beings, we can control our emotions and our biological urges. And the impact of wanting to bond with someone who does not want to bond can leave women feeling disappointed, confused and sometimes hurt. However, from my own personal experience, most women cannot have a sexual encounter and not feel hurt if a man does not call again and is clear he has not intention to do so.For example, the age old complaint about double standards.The complaint is that women are stigmatized and men are not.Evolution is not switched off because the pill, IUD, condoms and all other forms of contraception came into existence. consumption of women have anything to do with the increase in casual sex?If she cannot do it sober, perhaps she shouldn't be doing it at all.Right off there can't be a double standard when considering that the vast majority of men are lucky to get an occasional hookup.My lady friend had a diagnosis of depression and when life issues became the disappointment that despite all effort at times occurs.Perhaps it may find a treatment in another article. It's shameful that the author couldn't even google it. Male orgasm isn't associated with oxytocin release?! Oxytocin plays a couple of different essential roles in the process for men, so thanks for the link. Ruth was just trying to make a female-biology-as-male-destiny type of argument. Feminacentrism is another manifestation of Womenfirsters' power to define the agenda.The truth is that women are stigmatized and most men don't begin to qualify for stigma.That's because almost all women have control over the number of sex partners and only a few men do.
