Relationship Discord

From both the point of view of clinical impression as well as clinical research, anger resulting from relationship discord seems to have a different effect on sexual desire in men compared with women. An experimental study may bear this out. Twenty-four men and an equal number of women, all university students, were asked to indicate their level of sexual desire in relation to audiotapes describing different sexual events (46). When subjects were presented with a stimulus that provoked anger, the authors found that significantly fewer men (21%) than women (79%), indicated that they would have terminated the sexual encounter.
