The "area for sexual pursuit" is 2.5 times larger in the male brain than in the female brain.

In my experience - which is considerable - men are definitely more "on the look-out" but women are by far dirtier, as well in imagination as in practice.

I would say that men think about sex more, but I don't know that they have dirtier minds.

Does the fact that your name makes me think of people named Lisa I know naked count toward this poll at all?

I'd agree with that with a 'most men' though

Yes, due mainly to poor ear hygene.

I think it depends on the person and the age. Younger people probably think about sex more than older people.

For me, there are many more interesting things to think about with respect to the world, the universe and Nature.

I think that women talks more about details when it comes to sex than men do, while men usually keeps the details private and but make statements referring to sex a lot.

Do that mean that women or men are the dirtiest?

I am very private and won't talk about sex to friends. I don't know any women that do. I think that women talking about sex in a crowd of other women is a male fantasy. We may get dirty, but we keep that private.

Year or two back public radio carried a This American Life story about a woman who had undergone a sex change operation. As she went through the drug treatment to become he, 'he' gave a hilarious description of his change in mind set as the testosterone kicked in. The person sounded very rationale, and careful about not falling into stereotypes, yet he admitted to a series of what we might call stereotypical male behaviours that had never happened to 'her' prior: constant sexual imagery about women he would encounter in public, and , apropos this forum, a new found fascination with physics.

I think he also related being irritated about the odd accusation of being a misogynist in casual interaction with women.

This is rather unbelievable story so I'll see if I can't google it up.

Act Two. Infinite Gent.
An interview with Griffin Hansbury, who started life as a woman, but began taking massive testosterone injections seven years ago, and now lives as a man. He explains how testosterone changed his views on nature vs. nurture for good. (17 minutes) Song: "To Sir With Love," Lulu
2) Recently came across terrific audio from a 2002 episode of This American Life while researching testosterone for my next book. Griffin Hansbury is a transsexual who asserts that after receiving T (testosterone), he became interested in science and understood physics. Perhaps, but I suspect he may also be susceptible to placebo. Listen and decide for yourself.

I must live in a fantasy world then. I'm not saying that EVERY woman I know talks (in front of me) to me or other women about sexual encounters, but it has happened on more than one occasion. My male friends may admit to some kind of encounter, but that is as far as it goes. To say it is a male fantasy is quite simply wrong. I also suppose it depends on what you call a 'crowd'.

Maybe it has to do with you being around? I hear women talk about sex more than I hear men talk about sex btw, unless you count the "lulz" talk but I don't think that should count really.

Hm, seems like no females voted so far (15 votes, all males). I wonder what that means. Probably that Evo is right - women doesn't want to talk about sex.

It could very well be my personal group of friends. It could also be a generational thing. It just was never anything to talk about, we had other interesting subjects, our deviant sex lives were personal. Why would you need to talk about your sex life, to brag? Maybe my dullest sex is your most exciting, does it matter?

Sis, you're such a prude!

I'm completely the opposite. It was worse when I was younger and worked in a bar with a bunch of cocktail waitresses and played in a band. Filthiest locker room talk you ever heard. I'v mellowed a lot since then, of course.
