Ok, so we’ve written advice for guys on how to send naked pictures to girls: mainly, don’t, but if you really feel compelled, at least try to make it somewhat funny.
The problem is, while there are certainly some women who are aroused by the sight of naked men, in general, anatomy isn’t what’s going to compel them to have sex. According to an article in the Washington Post:
“We spent six years of research on why women have sex,” Meston says. They compiled 237 reasons. Duty sex. Revenge sex. Pity sex. Bored sex, engaged in because women simply had nothing better to do. “Of the 237 reasons why women have sex,” Meston says, “not one was looking at a man’s genitals.”
So, what kind of sexts DO girls want to receive? Here’s what a few of our readers had to say.
