So after a long (mildly drunken) debate with several our couples friends we decided women experiment more..sexually.
friend# 1 argument was that women can experiment more freely without the fear of society shunning them.
Friend #2 argument was that women want to experiment more because they mistake appreciating a woman’s beauty as attraction.
friend #3 said women DON’T experiment as much because society is quick to label them with crude names (whore, slut, ect.)
my opinion was that women do experiment more but because they start trying to “find themselves” at a younger age than men do then life happens and they see doing things like that as childish and start looking to settle down. Or IMMENSE pressure from family’s to “be a provider, find a good wife, be a good dad” is drilled into their heads more.
so here’s the poll! Do woman experiment more than men? Why or why not?

I’d suspect not. We still reinforce a lot of antiquated cultural norms (Women don’t want sex; women who sleep with (x) amount of people are sluts; women who do anything more than missionary are dirty), and so on. There are always going to be rebels who live more adventurous lives – but I’d wager that on average, women are less adventurous than men.
The potential risks are also higher for women – it tends to be easier for women to get STIs from men than it is for men to get them from women (and the whole pregnancy thing) – of course, unless the experimenter is vigilant with her use of barrier methods.

100% yes. It’s much more accepted for a woman to experiment with another woman, decide it’s not for her and avoid the lesbian label. If a man experiments with another man and (people find out) he will always be thought of as having ‘gay tendencies’

@FauxBoho: yep, and I think that fear alone is why most men cringe at the thought of experimenting with another man
