An important note  from a Proud Podcast Participant just came into my Email. It’s about the current blog and the podcast at www.dicksummer.com/podcast :

Dick, I just read and listened to the latest podcast.   I must admit, with the relationship you and LWW have had all these years, I was quite surprised to learn that she had verbalized what many women feel.  Especially since you have always struck me as being exceptionally sensitive, romantic and caring.
There are a few unhappy realities that women face as they age.  I know I always enjoyed, no LOVED lovemaking (and yes, animal sex for the pure lustiness of it !! It did have to be with the right person, though.)
I noticed as I “hit” menopause, and then even more so after I had to start taking an anti-cancer med that stops my body from producing estrogen, that certain unwelcome physiological changes were taking place.
For example — those erogenous zones that were always so wonderfully hyper-sensitive — well,  they weren’t any more.  Lots of other things a bit too technical and personal to go into, but suffice it to say that a rather large monkey wrench had been thrown into the works and the result was a lot less pleasure than before. It also ruined spontaneity.
Men don’t have those problems as they age.  Some have ED issues – but if they aren’t dealing with that, everything seems to be “hunky-dory” in the sensation and performance department.
And, as you so aptly put it, men are “animal” and their bodies “grab” them, and frequently.  It’s the old “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus” thing.   As we age, it seems that this disparity between the sexes becomes more prominent, especially in the appetite department.
The one thing that women never do get enough of — and I believe this is quite universal– is the need for what you call “Lovin’ touch”.  Yep – you hit the nail on the head when you coined that term.   Women, because of their “wiring” really need and crave being held, petted, and cuddled — but (as they get older) not necessarily the sexual aspect that would normally follow.     We need to feel loved and cherished, and being held and petted in a non-sexual way often fills that need.
I can tell you that I, for one, resent having my fun interfered with physiologically.  (Talk about things just not being fair!!!!!)
Anyway, this podcast has obviously struck a nerve…..and I hope my own experience might give a teeny, tiny bit of insight as to why.
