Book Bag: Why Women Have Sex

The authors of Why Women Have Sex interviewed 1,000 women with the hopes of uncovering hidden female sexual motivations. Their conclusion? That women sometimes have sex for reasons other than desire and might not be that interested in sex itself.

Some of the women interviewed said they have sex with their partners for the following reasons:

  • To defend against male infidelity.
  • To boost their self-confidence.
  • To barter for gifts or household chores.
  • To cure a migraine headache.

I'm not so surprised that women have sex for various reasons (don't men, too?), but let's not forget that many women actually enjoy sex and don't just engage in it to get something out of a man. I know women who have sex (gasp!) because they want a good-old fashioned orgasm (as elusive as that orgasm might be!).

The book is out Sept. 29. Would you pick it up?
