Being a woman, especially growing up with three sisters and no brothers, I can't fully comprehend the male mind. I can make some pretty good guesses, but two things I'd really like to know... from a man's perspective... 1) Is sex REALLY a separate thing from emotion? I mean, do men HONESTLY separate themselves emotionally from a woman when having sex? Can anyone explain to me why a couple can be "not speaking to each other" and the man still finds the desire to have sex? 2) What do men want from a wife/significant other? Is it someone to whom you want to bare your soul, and sex is the ultimate physical expression of your emotional unity? Is it a good friend with whom you can make love? Or would they prefer to have a housekeeper/nanny/secretary who puts out? How do men view the link between emotional intimacy and sexual intimacy?
