I just read this article about how sexual arousal is different for men and women...I won't try to summarize it, here's the link.

I remember reading the NYT article when it was first published and thinking that it confirmed some of my hypotheses and provided more ideas to ponder. It is unsurprising that research on female sexuality lags behind males and that findings indicate there are differences between males and females in this area. After my first reading, I thought, "There's a dissertation topic somewhere in in this fascinating research," which goes to show how one part of my brain is on constant academic alert.
