What exactly is sexual desire? To put it simply, it is a person’s desire and desire for sex. Not only humans, but also animals have sexual desire, which is what we often call “heat”. However, the estrus period of animals is relatively short, such as the giant panda, the national treasure of China, which only comes into estrus in March and April every year. Humans and their closest relatives, chimpanzees, are not restricted by estrus and can have sex anytime and anywhere. Of course, this ability is not innate, but the result of the evolution of species from low to high.
Let me tell you another cold knowledge (I don’t know if I can be proud of it): human sexual desire is the strongest among all animals.
Sexual desire is too high or too low, how to return a responsibility?
Sexual desire is exorbitant or too low, basically have two big reasons: One kind is caused by the disease; The other is related to mental factors, such as repeated sexual stimulation can cause hypersexuality, too much pressure can lead to low sexual desire.
If the sexual desire caused by the disease is too high or too low, it is recommended to go to the hospital for treatment. (Remember not to go to an unqualified andrology hospital!)
If it is caused by mental factors, it is necessary to find out the causes, symptomatic treatment, and
seek the help of psychologists when necessary.
What’s the difference between male and female sexual desire?
It is said that “men are from Mars, women are from Venus”, and men and women are very different in sexual desire.
The peak of sexual desire is different
The sexual desire peak of the male is in 18 ~ 20 years old commonly, at this moment the requirement to sexual life frequency is highest also, drop gradually subsequently. The peak of women’s sexual desire is generally after the age of 30, forming a scissors gap between men and women in sexual desire. Compared with women, men’s sexual desire is more turbulent. Under normal circumstances, the level of androgen in men’s blood is generally higher than that in women. It is this difference that determines the difference in sexual desire between men and women: men are direct, strong and impulsive; Women are passive and reserved.
Therefore, men are often ridiculed as “thinking with their lower body” animals, which seems to be related to factory settings.
The stronger the sexual desire, the higher the sexual performance?
Of course not!
Sexual desire is a subjective desire, while sexual ability is to turn desire into concrete action, and harmonious sexual life requires the coordination and unity of sexual desire and sexual ability. However, the separation of sexual desire and sexual function is very common, including physiological, disease and other factors.
For example, some elderly men still have high sexual desire, but their sexual function is slowly declining, although they want it subjectively, but in fact they are unable to do so.
Women with more pubic hair and men with big testicles have stronger sexual desire?
The person that has this kind of idea, can send you two words only: Superficial!
Let’s start with pubic hair. Androgen levels do affect the amount of pubic hair, but it does not mean that more pubic hair means more sexual desire. Because the reasons that affect women’s sexual desire are quite complex, hormones are only one of them, not the decisive factor.
Besides, testicles. As we said above, male hormone levels affect male sexual desire. However, androgen levels are not proportional to testicular size. That is to say, the testicles are large and do not necessarily secrete more male hormones. In short, this kind of “judging people by their appearance” is not reliable!
As an ancient Chinese saying goes, “Food and sex are the essence of human nature.”. You see, whether it was the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period more than two thousand years ago or the Sui and Tang Dynasties more than one thousand years ago, the ancients were more magnanimous in dealing with sex than we imagined.
However, today in 2022, many people still turn pale at the mention of sex. In addition to carrying on the family line, they try to suppress and avoid sex.
Excessive avoidance is not conducive to the correct understanding and handling of sex, which leads to disharmony between the sexes and even tragedy.
In fact, sexual desire, like eating and sleeping, is the most basic need for human survival. It is better to learn from the ancients and face it calmly.
