The Science of Getting it On
According to a recent study, the key to sexual desire lies in your jeans. So take them off and let’s do some scientific exploration.
Wait, sorry, I heard that wrong . . . it’s actually in your genes. Put your pants back on, pervert.
Researchers asked 148 male and female college students to rate their sexual desires, probably in explicit detail (“Tell me more about where you’d put the whipped cream?”). Apparently, the D4 receptor gene matched up with the differing self-assessments, suggesting that a lack of sexual desire may be less of a dysfunction and more of a plain old biological fact.
Nailing down the exact cause for sexual disinterest is the first step toward finding a way to fix or alter it. For instance, your most recent date’s lack of sexual desire could have been caused by her genetic make-up, or perhaps it was caused by your habit ofÃ‚ relating everything she said to a differentÃ‚ episode of Everybody Loves Raymond. Until you know for sure, you probably won’t be able to get her in the sack. (For the sake of your sex life, I recommend taking an educated guess until more genetic testing can be accomplished.)
It’s a shame thatÃ‚ Freud is dead. He’d be so happy to hear that we finally have a scientifically proven reason for blaming our mothers for our poor sex lives.
