I have been writing about men and how we differ from women for the last 40
years. For most of that time, I have run into a great deal of opposition from
people implying that talking about sex differences is another form of sexism.
More recently many researchers, including feminist women, are recognizing that
sex differences exist and must be addressed. Louann Brizendine, M.D., author
of The Female Brain and recently released, The Male Brain, shows that men and
women both alike and different. And nowhere is this more apparent is in the
male’s preoccupation with sex.

'Male Brain': Why men obsess over sex
By Louann Brizendine, Special to CNN

• Louann Brizendine: Male and female brains mostly alike, but some profound
differences exist

• Men's sexual pursuit area 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain, she

• She says testosterone drives the "Man Trance"-- or a glazed-eye stare at breasts
• Brizendine: A wife's pheromones cause "Daddy Brain." Later, "Lovable Grandpa"

or "Grumpy Old Man"?

Editor's note: Dr. Louann Brizendine is a member of the American Board of Psychiatry
and Neurology and the National Board of Medical Examiners, and a clinical professor of
psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. She is founder and director of
the Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic. She wrote "The Female Brain" and, just
released, "The Male Brain." Brizendine will appear on HLN's "The Joy Behar Show"
tonight at 9.
