No two women are alike. Just as their preferences vary in almost all aspects of life, the same holds true for sex. Sexual arousal in women is not rocket science. Women have been known to improve their sex lives just by understanding what their bodies respond to. Men have been successful in taking women to the heights of passion just by taking the time out to understand what their women need.
The Types Of Sexual Arousal In Women
The types of sexual arousal in women can be broadly classified into 4 types. These are the sensual, cognitive, intimacy and the attractor types. Every woman belongs to one of these categories. Having said that, it is also necessary to mention that preferences can change depending on circumstances and the man she is with. When a man understands the category his partner belongs to, it becomes easy for him to focus on her likes, rather than trying a million different combinations that will get him nowhere.
The Sensual Type
The woman who belongs to this category relies on her senses to be sexually aroused. Sight, smell, touch and taste play a major role in sexual arousal for her.
The feel of her partner stroking her back or running his fingers along her jawline, a certain smell such as that of a bouquet of flowers or an exquisite cologne that her partner uses, and even particular foods can get her in the mood for lovemaking.
The Cognitive Type
The woman belonging to this category relies to a large extent on what she imagines and what she sees, to get sexually aroused. Her thoughts and imagination need to run wild to get her fueled and turned on. Watching pornography with her partner, reading an erotic novel, and even erotica can arouse her like nothing else can. Certain physical aspects of her partner can be arousing. Sometimes, fantasizing about being made love to by a fictitious character, enables her to enjoy sex better with her partner. Talking dirty in bed is another turn on for her.
The Intimacy Type
This woman thinks with her heart. She likes to be wooed the old fashioned way – flowers, soft music, dim lights, cuddling and whispering sweet nothings are all part of the package.
Having sex with any random guy is not her cup of tea. It is all about the “connection.” Connecting with her partner and being able to relate to him on an emotional level is very important to her. She needs to love and care for her man and feel loved and special in return, in order for him to be able to stimulate her sexually.
The Attractor Type
This woman thrives on being attractive and sexy for her partner. Her pleasure and sexual arousal stem from being able to please her partner. She loves to be talked to through the entire process of lovemaking. Being told how good she makes him feel, how good she is in bed and how she turns him on, is all part of the arousal process for her. The woman who belongs to this category thrives on being appreciated sexually.
