Men have a far greater appetite for sex and are more attracted to pornography than women are. This is the timeworn stereotype that science has long reinforced. Modern statistics showing that men are still the dominant consumers of online porn seem to support this thinking, as does the fact that men are more prone to hypersexuality, whereas a lack of desire and anorgasmia are more prevalent in women.
Since it is logically impossible to hold constant both male and female age-specific fertility rates, the intrinsic growth rates or the net reproduction rates for males and females, based on that assumption, are internally inconsistent. The interactive two-sex model presented in this paper holds constant a set of bivariate age-specific fertility rates by age of men and women and allows the male and female age-specific fertility rates to adjust themselves to achieve stability. The model gives the same intrinsic growth rate for both sexes and generates intrinsic age-specific fertility rates and intrinsic net reproduction rates for males and females which are consistent and can operate simultaneously on a population.
The sexual revolution did not start in the free-loving s as is commonly thought, a University of Florida researcher says. Census Bureau statistics on premarital pregnancy and vital statistics on single motherhood between and point to the unexpected conclusion that there was much more sexual activity during those decades than Americans were willing to admit, said Alan Petigny, a UF history professor whose research was published in the fall issue of the Journal of Social History. For example, the proportion of the population that considered alcoholism a disease rather than a moral failing increased from 6 percent in to more than 60 percent inPetigny said.
As their subtitle implies, a body of information and advice on sexuality was constructed from the seventeenth century onwards in the form of self-help manuals; moral tracts; medical dissertations; treatises of the specialist sexologists; works of literature; and texts on sexual habits, reproduction, masturbation, prostitution, and sexual pathologies. These discourses of sexuality are now made available, enabling an exploration of the sexual mores, practices and beliefs of earlier ages. Through these texts we can understand how perceptions of the body have changed over time, and how attitudes towards sex have influenced broader gender issues. Part 1 focuses on 17th, 18th and 19th century texts which are not likely to be available in most libraries.

Many of the texts have been subject to taboo, censorship, prejudice and condemnation and have been relegated to the periphery. This series will enhance our understanding of the sexual enlightenment and its aftermath and the way in which individuals have negotiated their sexual practices and beliefs throughout the course of history. It complements - and does not in any way duplicate - our series entitled Women Advising Women, Women and Victorian Values and Masculinity. Part 1, which includes texts from the Bodleian Library, Oxford and the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, London, provides 61 texts which will enable researchers to understand how perceptions of the body have changed over time, and how attitudes towards sex have influenced broader gender issues.
The sexual revolutionalso known as a time of sexual liberationwas a social movement that challenged traditional codes of behavior related to sexuality and interpersonal relationships throughout the United States and subsequently, the wider world, from the s to the s. Several other periods in Western culture have been called the "first sexual revolution", to which the s revolution would be the second or later. The term "sexual revolution" itself has been used since at least the late s.
T he remarkable Disney animated feature Fantasia was slightly controversial for its depiction of bare-breasted centaurettes without nipples in the Pastoral Symphony segment. Adhering to the strict rules in the Hays Production Code, the figures were discreetly garlanded with flower bras for cover-up after bathing topless still uncensored in a waterfall and pond seen from a distance. The more controversial segment in the Pastoral Symphony was of a female pickaninny centaurette with braided hair named Sunflower who was shining the hoof of a white female centaurette. The black centaurette was first abruptly cut from the film and as technology improved, the scene was edited by 'resizing' or 'zooming in' on the frames with the character in them so that she was not seen in the shot.
