And what I think is healthier for people, is to talk about it in terms of foreplay, in terms of touching and kissing and romancing because men and women generally are different.

There are always exceptions to the rule, but women generally need more time to stop thinking about the kids, stop thinking about the bills and really relax before they can really start to feel physical arousal and before their desire can kick in.
