Fascinating read from the NYT that makes a bold (albeit far from sufficient) attempt to understand more of the origins and nature of female sexuality. The excerpt below notes that while the studies of Meredith Chivers, noted sexual researcher, begin to explore the nature female sexuality, there is still much much more to learn and be explored before we can fully understand.
The giant forest seemed, so often, too complex for comprehension.
And sometimes Chivers talked as if the actual forest wasn’t visible at all, as if its complexities were an indication less of inherent intricacy than of societal efforts to regulate female eros, of cultural constraints that have left women’s lust dampened, distorted, inaccessible to understanding.
I should warn that while most worthy....it is a rather long piece. Full article here.
