Sex and bonding

Why women have sex on the brain in the Times doesn’t make much sense to me. I had a very strong bond with my wife of twelve years, though our sex life was less than stellar. Before and after we split, I’ve had relationships based more intensely in sex.

“We’re talking about 24 hours of constant copulation.” Translated to human behaviour, he said, this could mean that the more sex a couple have, the deeper their bond becomes, at least on the woman’s side.

Uh, in my experience, 24 hours of constant sex seems to be the marker for intense but short relationships, not long term bonds. But who am I to argue with the voles.
