Today we're taking another look at women's sexuality, and their behaviors, from a scientific research-driven perspective. In today's episode we look at myths and new truths discovered about when and how women become aroused, and the interplay between their physiology and their psychology, and how this affects their true behavior, their sexual behaviors.

We're going to be looking at topics such as the physiological differences between women. All women are not the same. Their hormones are different. Their neurotransmitters are different, and this all affects their sexual behaviors. They have different sexual behaviors.

The drugs, the exercise, and the other aspects of lifestyle that can increase or decrease a woman's propensity to become aroused and how they affect the extent of that arousal. So, high arousal equals orgasms, basically, to give you a bit of background to that and why that's important; and the reality of how common sexual abuses for women in childhood and teenage years - and I was kind of shocked about this - and how that affects their sexuality in adulthood; and what men who sleep with or have relationships with these women should consider and probably not consider, and many, many more topics.

This episode is really a broad look at the scientific research about what sexually arouses women.

Today's guest is Cindy Meston, PhD. She's a professor at the University of Texas and Director of the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory there. She has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on women's sexuality. She's given over 200 professional presentations on human sexuality.

She is the coauthor with David M. Buss, a very recent previous guest, of a book I recommend also "Why Women Have Sex: Understanding Sexual Motivations from Adventure to Revenge", and everything in between. So they co-wrote that book together. She's also the author of "Women's Sexual Function and Dysfunction: Study, Diagnosis and Treatment".

Finally, she's a recipient of two international research awards, the Social Science Research Council, Ford Foundation, the NY Sexuality Research Fellowship, and the Athena Institute for Women's Wellness Inc. research award. So, she's very well qualified to talk about this subject.
