CHAPTER FORTY-SIX 

 

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAN'S AND WOMAN'S SEX AND LOVE LIFE 

 

Seemingly Contradictory Statements--Faulty Interpretations of 

Words Sexual Instinct and Love--Difference in Manifestations of 

Male and Female Sexual Instincts--Man's Sex Instinct Grosser Than 

Woman's--Awakening of Sexual Desire in the Boy and in the 

Girl--Woman's Desire for Caresses--Man's Main Desire for Sexual 

Relations--Normal Sex Relations as Means of Holding a Man--A 

Physiological Reason Why Man is Held--Man and Physical 

Love--Woman and Spiritual Love--Preliminaries of Sexual 

Intercourse in Men and Women--Physical Attributes--Mental and 

Spiritual Qualities--Difference Between Love and "Being in 

Love"--Love as a Stimulus to Man--When the Man Loves--When the 

Woman Loves--Man's More Engrossing Interests--Lovemaking Irksome 

to Man--Man's Polygamous Tendencies--Woman Single-affectioned in 

Her Sex and Love Life--Man and Woman Biologically Different. 

 

 

In reading books or listening to lectures on sex, you will meet with 

statements which will seem to you contradictory. One time you will 

read or hear that the sex instinct is much more powerfully developed 

in man than it is in woman; next time you will come across the 

statement that sex plays a much more important role in women than it 

does in men. One time you will hear that men are oversexed, that they 

are by nature polygamous and promiscuous, while woman is monogamous 

and as a rule sexually frigid; the next time you will be assured that 

without love a woman's life is nothing, and you will be confronted 

with Byron's well-known and oft quoted two lines: Man's love is of 

man's life a thing apart, 'Tis woman's whole existence. 

 

These contradictions are only apparent and result from two facts: 

first, that the words sex or sexual instinct and love are used 

indiscriminately and interchangeably as if they were synonymous terms, 

which they are not; second, there is failure to bear in mind the 

essential differences in the natures and manifestations of the sexual 

instincts in the male and the female. If these differences are made 

clear, the apparent contradictions will disappear. The outstanding 

fact to bear in mind is that in man the sex instinct bears a more 

sensual, a more physical, a coarser and grosser character, if you have 

no objection to these adjectives, than it does in woman. In women it 

is finer, more spiritual, more platonic, to use this stereotyped and 

incorrect term. In men the sex manifestations are more centralized, 

more local, more concentrated in the sex organs; in women they are 

more diffused throughout the body. In a boy of fifteen the libido 

sexualis may be fully developed, he may have powerful erections and a 

strong desire for normal sexual relations; in a girl of fifteen there
