Their UCLA facility is enabling the Bermans to conduct some of the first systematic psychological and physiological research on the factors that inhibit female sexual function.
Oh, and guys:
Laura, 22, offered a different reason:
Forty-two percent of female respondents agreed that they would actually talk more about their sex lives to their friends if they had feelings for the person.
What about my own girlfriends?
Only 13 percent of the sex ktten respondents admitted to ALWAYS talking about how far they went sexually with their friends, while a whopping 46 percent of female respondents said the same.
Before Viagra, medicine was doing everything from penile injections to wire and balloon implants to raise flagging erections, while female sexual dysfunction was almost exclusively treated as a mental problem.
Stephanie, 22, says that she feels so close to her partner that she doesn't feel the need to share details with their friends:
But with all the attention on Viagra and prostate problems in men, most people would probably never guess that more women than men suffer from sexual dysfunction.
In fact, studies show that a high rate of sexual dysfunction is wreaking havoc on relationships, and that women suffer from it more than men.
Oh, and guys:
There was a part of me that assumed every guy was just lying about how much sex they were having to appear more manly to their friends.
