Not tonight dear, I’ve got a huge stonk-on!
THE theory that men and women are different when they express desire has been debunked, according to scientists.
The study by McGill University in Canada discovered that even though men have an erection, they do not always want sex.
Psychologists have conducted a unique study into the minds and bodies of both genders to find out what happens during arousal.
Despite popular belief, experts claim men are just as likely as women to say, “I may look like I’m ready for sex, but I’m just not that into it”.
Researchers tested 140 straight men and women, aged 18 - 50.
They measured genital temperature – for levels of arousal – and found an important difference between men and women was that a lack of desire to have sex in girls led to arousal issues during sex.
But for men, erectile problems during sex often led to a lack of desire to have sex.
The study also undermined beliefs about masturbation and sexual fantasies because they do “not necessarily” indicate a desire for intercourse.
