The idea that a man doesn’t want sex at any given time, despite sounding perfectly normal on paper, is so against what we’re led to believe through this goofy pop culture condition that says men think about sex every seven seconds or whatever the myth of the week is, and so against the porn staple of a dude just having a hard-on nonstop, that we’ve come to accept it. … The sex drive of a man is pretty much the same as that of a woman. Sure, some dudes will always be ready to go, just like some women are. But if a woman can imagine a time when she wouldn’t feel like having sex, then so too can a man. And it happens.
