What is it about?
It has been assumed for decades that women have the same sexual arousal and desire patterns as men. We demonstrate that not only do women's arousal and desire patterns differ from the traditional sexual response pattern, they differ from each other. Interestly, 5 out of 6 of the patterns were link with healthy sexual outcomes. This is important for women and their partners to understand because it will allow women to be more accepting of their own arousal and reduce the pressure to respond like their partner or even other women.
