In their research, Meston and Buss found that many women had “revenge sex” with someone other than their most recent dating partner to get back at a cheating partner or to “even the score,” as some women put it.
“Some women hoped their ex would find out about it and feel angry or hurt, and other women said they didn’t care if they found out or not — they felt better just knowing they had gotten revenge,” Meston explains.
Male pheromones have been shown to provide information on a man’s symmetry, which is an indicator of genetic fitness and ultimately can determine whether a man is genetically compatible with a woman.
Meston and Buss explain that, for women, sense of smell is far more important than it is to men when it comes to sexual attraction.Heard “Not tonight, honey” a few too many times lately? For a better understanding of how to get her in the mood, consider the following eight factors that Meston and Buss say affects a woman’s libido: Men are usually considered to be the most turned on by visual stimuli (think about it: how many strip clubs and adult magazines are actually targeted toward females?If it’s just not happening between the sheets for you and your lady, it might be time to learn what really gets her psyched for sex. ), but women are actually quite turned on by a man’s face, body and movement as well, say Meston and Buss.Buss also notes that a man with a sense of humor is also a sexual turn-on for the ladies: “If a man can make a woman laugh, it relaxes her and makes her feel that he ‘gets’ her,” he says, adding that a good sense of humor also conveys some key qualities women want in a mate: intelligence (it’s hard to be witty if you’re not too bright), the ability to gauge her emotional and social perspective (a.k.a.having the mind-reading skills to know what she will find amusing), and social verve or confidence.
