As a woman, you probably know (or at least think you know) that most men want sex. A lot of it. And there’s a good chance that a large part of your relationship with men is defined by your perception of their sexual desire. Here are several things men wish women knew about being sexual.
Unless you have been blessed by growing up in a near-perfect environment when it comes to man-woman relationships, you probably relate to men in one of two ways:
- Avoid any hint of sexuality. You see men as out to dominate, hurt, use, and abuse, and the only way to stay safe is to avoid getting close at all costs.
- Use sex to get what you want. Because you see men as sexually driven, you use your own sexuality to manipulate them for your own benefit.
Isn’t that sad?! No, it’s more than sad. It’s absolutely tragic!
Think about it. What God intended as an intimate, exciting, comforting, and beautiful means of bonding husband and wife together has too often become a weapon, a means of manipulation, or a source of trauma and pain.
Yes, some men have allowed their sexual drives to become a means of control. And we could talk a lot more about the ways sexuality has been used in perverse and even evil ways – by both men AND women!
