Yet today, the idea that men are more interested in sex than women is so pervasive that it seems almost unremarkable.The article argues that this view is relatively recent and completely unfounded in the past. I don't think I believe it.
But then I was thinking about it a little bit. Perhaps it's modern day dress and hygiene that makes all the difference. My female readers can't answer this, but for the rest of you, here's the question: which environment would make you more interested in sex? One where all the women haven't bathed in, well, ever, and are dressed in clothing from biblical through puritan times as in the images below...
... or women in more revealing modern western dress as in the examples below?
Note that I could've picked much more provocative images, but the ones above are pretty typical for what I see wandering around San Diego.
