Are men and women satisfied by different things? Does hooking up affect men and women differently? Although many people believe that hookup culture has turned college-aged women to pursue casual sex as much as men, the reality is however, that it is men who have the desire more for casual sex, while women are still pursuing committed relationships. Traditionally, it has been men that people think of as the driving force behind the pursuit of casual sex relationships. But with the women today receiving higher degrees and striving for greater prestige in the work force, some believe that women are equally behind the wheel of hookup culture.
Research opposes the claim of men being the reason women have sexual activity in society. According to the research article by Marieke Dewitte “... women wanted more sex after being primed with romantic mood whereas men showed the least wanting of sex in the romantic condition” (Dewitte 1664). The author’s point is that during romantic occasions, women were more interested in seeking intercourse than men. The point made by the article is significant because men are not always the instigators in wanting sexual pleasure. The research showed that women in today’s generation feel the same when seeking sexual pleasure but are afraid of what society is going to think about their desires for sex.
Voltaire tries to tell us that women at that time period were vulnerable. Because of that, Cunegonde is blinded by the real situation of women. In Cunegonde's life she has only experienced rape and being sold so, it’s highly unlikely that her perspective of women being raped will change. Women probably felt offended because Cunegonde is basically saying how it’s better to be raped more than once in order for you to be virtuous. Besides women, some men probably felt responsible for how women were treated and all of this happened was due to men feeling superior to women.
Generally, if a woman sleeps around with a lot of guys, society labels her as a “slut” and she’s viewed in a negative light, however, if a man sleeps around with a lot of girls, society, considers him to be masculine and he’s viewed in a positive light. These types of moral assumptions that come with having sex, naturally place women below men. Although things have become more progressive, with more women feeling comfortable to be sexually active despite the antiquated negative stereotypes, objectification of women in relation to sexuality is still entirely too

Even though young people are stereotyped as being more negative when it comes to the issue of sex, not all teenagers are that concerned with it. The author states more teenagers are looking at the outcome of having sex and thinking about the STD issue. Another issue is sex when it comes to parties and drugs. It seems that more and more girls are not getting the necessary understandings of the risks of sex, therefore having it at a younger age. While males are having sex for reasons just to try it out, or because they think they are cool.
The purpose of my project was to explore female sexuality and empowerment. It is an important topic because women are judged on their sexuality. It is expected that women be sexy but not sexual, meaning to look the part, but do not act on it. We live in a world where women are held to a different standard than men. Men are expected to sleep around with many women; it gives them almost a god-like complex while women are shunned for sleeping around.
She talks about the limiting misconception of sex only being coitus, and other acts not “counting.” Christina writes of how when she started having sex with women her outdated system of what was sex and what was not sex was completely destroyed. By limiting sex to “penis in vagina,” Christina was discounting some of her favorite sexual experiances, and including ones she did not particularly enjoy. This article made me think about what I and the people around me count as sex. It can be hard in heterosexual relationships to get past the idea that coitus is the culmination and essence of sex. Even when hetrosexual partners understand that there are other things they enjoy just as much if not more, there often is an expectation that everything else is a disappointment if it does not lead up to coitus.
If a woman’s opinion of men changes simply from a sexist remark, it must be very difficult for an artist to constantly feel discriminated against simply because of her gender. It is common in the music industry for females to be sexualized not only by male artists, but also by someone as irrelevant as a music video director. Male music artists frequently use women as props in their music videos.
