Would you look at the time, it's 1987 already...

Is it really 2007? I mean really?

Because the line being taken by media covering US research to do with men and women's motivation for having sex says otherwise. The Slimes, at least, is practically clutching its pearls as it claims the research shatters the myth that women have sex to be emotionally fulfilled while men are driven by lust.
“It's refuted a lot of gender stereotypes ... that men only want sex for the
physical pleasure and women want love,” University of Texas clinical psychology
professor Cindy Meston, the study's co-author, told the Associated Press.
“That's not what I came up with in my findings. None of the gender differences
are all that great.”
Jesus - really? I mean we really have to go through this stuff again do we?

Meanwhile, on a more disturbing note some of less popular reasons given by men and women were one part amusing and another part creepy, including “I wanted to punish myself,” (uh huh) “I wanted to end my relationship” (hmmm) or “I wanted to give someone else a sexually transmitted disease” (jesus!).

Honestly, though, it’s articles like this that make Hollywood believe we still need or want a Sex and the City movie. Haven’t we dealt with this crap already?

Yeah The West is no different to The Slimes when it comes to some things. It's sad because real news stories get buried but it's even sadder that I choose to blog about these things instead of, you know, world events...
