I thought I'd share some thoughts from an article in the New York Times Saturday, which notes that men run the film and TV industries as well as the medical and pharmaceutical industries and set the standards for beauty, sexiness and normalcy.
They're created the image in shows like "Desperate Housewives'' that women are "rapacious sexual predators, always in the mood for sex and without qualms about bedding down as many men as possible.''
The article quoted one female professor of psychiatry as saying, "Everybody has to like sex, want sex, be good at sex. In the face of that, it's inevitable that people feel insecure.''
And plastic surgeons has promoted what they call "vaginal rejuvenation'' because women have become conscious of how their own genital features stack up against others.''
The article also says that female sexual dysfunction is an example of a disease created by the drug companies while in reality, scientists understand little about female desire and the interaction between the mind and the body.
I thought the article had some interesting points and I thought I'd see if any of the readers had any comments to make on this subject.
