Why women have sex

Apparently there are other reasons -- 236 of them -- besides "to get him to help out more around the house," according to a new book out titled Why Women Have Sex: Understanding Sexual Motivations from Adventure to Revenge (and Everything in Between. (Though according to a University of Michigan study, 9 percent of women indulge in "economic sex." Hey, if it gets him to do the dishes and fix my computer....)

You can read a quick overview of the book, which reveals some of the authors' more interesting findings (it helps ease migraines!), at Newsweek.com.

You can also take this quiz to find out how much you really know about women and sex.

UPDATED: Forgot about this classic New Yorker cartoon friend of the blog "Vubbie" (aka "Anonymous") sent me a while back.

Now you're just pandering! Next post: "Why do women blog about sex?" Or, better yet, "Why do female cats have sex?" Or, le piece de reistance, "Why do the female cats of New York professional athletes and American Idol contestants have sex?"

@Dan: Fun for whom? ; ) Btw, I think that's somewhere on the list.

@Moishie: But it always helps to have scientific proof. : )

@Tommy: Transfer?

@David T.: I see you've taken the quiz. What was your score? (I got 82% and would have had a higher score had I trusted my instincts. Guess women are more jealous after all. : (
