Deep Thought: Are men more sexually attracted “visually” while women are more “relational”?

A lady commented with this question-“why mean are perverts?”. I remember chatting with another lady about how men are more “visual” oriented and women are more “relationship” oriented..

The Difference Between the Male and Female Brain netnanny.com
“…Women See Relationships, Men See Body Parts
Anne Moir and David Jessel, in their book Brain Sex: The Real Difference Between Men and Women, write:

Women are not, in the main, turned on by pictures of nudes . . . Women may be aroused by pictures of couples coupling-because what they are seeing, in however sterile a sexual context, is a relationship in action. Women are not excited by a picture of male genitalia by itself . . . Men like female genital close-ups in porn magazines because it is a thing to which they can imagine doing things. Sex for men is vastly impersonal-pornography is simply meat for men. Do they ever wonder who the nude is? Not for a moment. They wonder what they would do to her.

Men want sex, and women want relationships. Men want flesh and women want love. Just as boys wanted balloons, toys, and carburetors, the girls have always wanted contact, and communion, and company.

The female mind is organized to place priority on relationship, the male on achievement. Men keep a tally of their sexual conquests. The female brain is not organized to keep sex in a separate compartment. This is a male model-as if his brain has a specific filing cabinet for sex, completely unrelated to emotion.

Sex Differences in Response to Visual Sexual Stimuli: A Review ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
“…This article reviews what is currently known about how men and women respond to the presentation of visual sexual stimuli. While the assumption that men respond more to visual sexual stimuli is generally empirically supported, previous reports of sex differences are confounded by the variable content of the stimuli presented and measurement techniques. We propose that the cognitive processing stage of responding to sexual stimuli is the first stage in which sex differences occur. The divergence between men and women is proposed to occur at this time, reflected in differences in neural activation, and contribute to previously reported sex differences in downstream peripheral physiological responses and subjective reports of sexual arousal. ..”

The two AVS types were: (1) mood type, erotic video clips with a concrete story and (2) physical type, directly exposing sexual intercourse and genitalia. fMRI images were analyzed and compared for each stimulation with a Mann–Whitney U test, with statistical significance set at P<0.05.

That’s a pretty bleak assessment of the male psyche, and even the most charitable interpretation — that men are more “sensation seeking” than women — is drenched in gender normativity and stereotypes…”
Men Are Actually More Emotional Than Women, They Just Hide It Better elitedaily.com
“..Women are emotional, true. But according to a recent study, men may very well be more emotional than their female counterparts. The only difference is men hide it better.

In this study, conducted by neurologists at Mindlab, men are actually much more sensitive than women when it comes to being presented with emotional stimuli.

Why did God make woman so opposite of man? November 4, 2014 / biblicalgenderroles biblicalgenderroles.com
“…But God did not just give women breasts for feeding children, he gave them breasts for the pleasure and comfort of man. Human females are the only mammals who have constantly protruding breasts, even when they are not pregnant or nursing children.

Because men are so visually wired by God, he made a woman’s body for beauty, not for toughness and endurance the way a man’s body is built.

But besides these practical differences, God also created woman for spiritual and symbolic reasons. God created man in his image, to exercise God’s leadership, provision and protection qualities. But man needed a person, not just some animal, which would allow him to exercise these traits. Woman was perfectly designed by God to fulfill this role as the recipient of man’s leadership, provision and protection, and to provide him with the perfect helper and companion.

What do you feed your mind?

My co-workers and I were chatting about “subliminal messages” in what we watch on television. One of them shared about Disney (see Neutral Perspective: There are subliminal messages in cartoons and NOT?) movies (e.g. lines and graphic images) and how she’s now more careful on what movies her children watch. I shared about some symbols in Hollywood movies, like the most recent movie I watched-“Inception” (see reviews). A friend of mine shared the following (down below) video and it opened my eyes to why these symbols are placed in movies to “think a particular” way if we don’t be careful..

Subliminal Advertising, from psychologistworld.com
“…A subliminal message is a signal or message designed to pass below (sub) the normal limits of perception. For example it might be inaudible to the conscious mind (but audible to the unconscious or deeper mind) or might be an image transmitted briefly and unperceived consciously and yet perceived unconsciously. This definition assumes a division between conscious and unconscious which may be misleading; it may be more true to suggest that the subliminal message (sound or image) is perceived by deeper parts of what is a single integrated mind. ..”

What symbols or hidden message have you noticed in the most recent movie you watch? What do you think they put them there? Do you think if we hear or read something repeatedly, we start acting or thinking that way? Has there been something that was taught to you repeatedly and you started to believe it was true? However, you seek the truth and after gathering some sources, you were finally delivered from this “lie” or “false teaching”? (e.g. Christopher Columbus discovered America) Are you more aware now what you watch or hear from movies or television? What are you doing to do to keep your mind from “hidden messages or symbols”?

Mind Control? The Hidden Messages in Television, crystalwashington.com
“I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I frequently feel overwhelmed with advertisement messages on billboards, television, the Internet, and people’s clothing. It seems that everywhere I turn, there is an advertisement.

One of the most subtle forms of advertising are messages and images in movies and television. To be honest, I never before thought about the positive impact that movie and television messaging could have on society and individuals until very recently…”
