Women with jobs apparently don't have sex

Posted on: 06 June 2011 by Alexander Hay

Career women are dull, whereas unemployed women have all the fun, if not all the money - or so the reports say

She's no doubt wishing she was in the kitchen instead

A not-at-all sexist story from the Daily Mail:

...Using the internet, neuroscientists Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam analysed half a billion sexual fantasies, preferences and practices, then correlated their findings with animal behaviour studies and the latest findings in neuroscience, to come to the very non-PC conclusion that when it comes to sex, women are wired to find sexual submission arousing. 

And that gender equality, far from liberating women sexually, actually inhibits desire. 

‘If you feel compelled to approach sex with the same gender attitudes as the working world, it’s going to be difficult to be aroused,’ says Ogas. 

Feminism, to put it as bluntly as these two do, is bad for sex, and is the prime reason why increasing numbers of women are seeking help for problems associated with low libido.

Nearly half a century on from the start of the Swinging Sixties and the birth of modern feminism, these pronouncements come close to heresy. But do these well-qualified scientists have a point worth paying attention to?

Seeing that there's at least 30 million very diverse, very complicated women in the UK, probably not. I think there may be some confirmation bias going on here, not least from the Daily Mail, that makes its money by making women with jobs feel very guilty.

Ogas is primarily known for starring in game shows and had his work funded by the Department of Homeland Security. His doctoral studies were in memory and vision. Sai Gaddam, meanwhile, works in the field of cognitive neuroscience but his background is in electrical engineering and 'online learning environments'.
