What Men Want

What Men Want

Louann Brizendine, MD is author of The Male Brain, which “demystifies the puzzling male brain.” So does our illustration (above).

Dr. Brizendine, a psychiatrist and clinical professor of psychiatry at UCSF, was recently interviewed on CNN. Excerpt:

Perhaps the biggest difference between the male and female brain is that men have a sexual pursuit area that is 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain.

The rest is commentary. She notes that it is biochemistry, not bad manners, that causes men to stare at women’s breasts, but does not mention Boobquake.

Dr. Brizendine is on Twitter. Ladies: to avoid irreversible damage to the male brain, please do not tweet from bed until the guy gets up to use the bathroom.
