What drives a man to want to have sex?

I’ve noticed some men are exited in the spur of the moment and want to have sex. Sometimes they have visual stimulation and other times they are always just horney as hell. Basically I was just asking out of curiosity.

Being a man.

There is an incredibly long, boring, evolutionary/chemical/biological reason that would take 15,000 characters to post here. I think the three simple words above sum it up pretty well.

It can be anything and everything honestly. Seeing a nicely displayed part of a woman’s body, thinking about something sexual, maybe even just being in a setting that could be used in a kinky manner.

Especially in our prime, it is not at all hard to turn on a guy.

Unless they are gay. Then men.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought . . . you could have just said “holes”.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@Blondesjon That would have made apparent how shallow I am.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought Nah, your name gave it away.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought Women. Unless they are gay. Then men

So if the women are gay, the men want men????

@Hibernate Is that like fear of the mons?

I have a feeling that the men who want sex right away (i.e., they treat a woman like a hooker), don’t get it. The more they don’t get it, the more they want it right away.

A patient man who pretends acts like he actually is interested in the woman’s personality probably gets a lot more. You know; if he compliments her enough.

Then again, if the woman is as horny as the man, it really doesn’t matter, does it?

Let’s get it on, baby!

See, there’s antediluvian in us all!

Man, my dick is driving me nuts. The magnetic attraction of the pussy should not be underestimated.

What drives a man to want to have sex? I was going to say “waking up”, but then again my dreams are pretty expressive too. So I think @Blondesjon ans @Imadethisupwithnoforethought have it right.

@marinelife I struggle with the think then type thing on occasion.

Let me be more precise in answering her question.

Women (or men to homosexuals I assume) are wicked attractive. When they are right there, and receptive, its hard not to think of anything else.

When they are not there, we want them there, cause its crystal clear that they should be there having sex with us. It makes no logical sense that they are not. Its intellectually frustrating, like pulling a slot machine over and over again. When we finally see the woman we have been thinking about, we are determined to make her see how much sense it would be to be with us.

This is especially true when we really care about a woman. “How can you not understand? You should be having sex with me! I really do care about you!”

Males and females are biologically wired to procreate. Nature said, “This is VERY important!” so she tweaked a little here and a little there and made it, or at least one aspect of it, very important to us. So we all go running amok attempting to procreate.

What doesn’t?

@Dutchess_III Are you saying you like it cold and distant? I’m more of a cuddler myself.

Their innate sexual drive… the sexual chemicals naturally found in the human body. duh.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Have you ever looked at the natural curves of a woman? Whoever came up with that design hit a grand slam.

What drives a woman to want to have sex?

I think the answer would be the same: sex is good.

I’ll summarize (in fewer than 15,000 characters) the long, boring evolutionary theory @Blondesjon was referring to. :P

Evolution favors those traits that favor creating many successful offspring.
Women, when they have sex, likely will have to carry a fetus for nine months (evolution doesn’t know about birth control), which is a physical strain. Therefore, since sex has consequences, women are more picky about who they have sex with. If they’re going to have to spend nine months carrying a fetus, they want to make sure that fetus is one that is going to be successful. So they seek out men with favorable traits to create a sucessful fetus. Women’s sexual habits, generally speaking, value quality over quantity.
Men on the other hand, have almost no consequence for having sex. Since creating offspring doesn’t take a physical toll on a man, the easiest way to create many successful offspring is to just create many offspring. So they aren’t so picky. Quantity over quality.

Yes, proper blood flow.

I thought the human brain had the ability to override these biological imperatives. Isn’t that what separates us from animals???

Selfish genes?

Each men has its reason for wanting to have sex. Usually is just because they are men. It depends on the moment, their social status, the situations he’s going through. If you’re in a strip club, you will definitely think of sex, the image of many women dancing like that is enough. Even women have lots of reasons to want sex. It’s human nature.
