The Male Brain

From the author of the groundbreaking, international bestseller The Female Brain comes the eagerly awaited follow-up which demystifies the intricacies of the male brain.

In this fascinating new study Dr. Brizendine covers all aspects of the male brain from teenage hormones to the motional level to the brain below the belt. Packed full of case studies and scientific facts this is the perfect compendium on all things male. It's the perfect guide for women everywhere and an owner's manual for men!

The Male Brain contains what we always knew but could never prove:

  • Men have two and a half times the brain space devoted to sexual drive than women.
  • Researches have found that men are biologically more comfortable lying to the opposite sex.
  • It takes only 5 minutes of casual interaction with a pretty women for men's testosterone levels to go up...
    How long is your morning commute??
  • Researchers have reported that men want an average of 14 sexual partners in their lifetime while the women said they wanted an average of one or two!

    And the new:
  • Sexual arousal begins in the brain... Sex therapists say that for women foreplay is everything that happens in the 24 hours preceding intercourse while for men it's what happens three minutes before entry!
  • A kiss is more than a kiss- it's a taste test. Saliva contains molecules from all the glands and organs in the body, serving up our signature flavour, complete with information on our health and genes- if it tastes sour it would be a sexual deal-breaker!
  • Primatologist have a meat-for-sex principle- sex is not about going dutch, if he brings the food he has more access to the sex!
  • Male 'stage fright' is proportional to how hot the woman is and how much he wants to impress her...
  • Men can't help falling asleep after sex- they are prone to postcoital narcolepsy- the hormone oxytocin promotes pleasurable, safe, warm feelings! No time for cuddles!
