Have you ever looked at your partner and thought, I need an instruction manual!? Men and women are programmed differently, but the key to comprehension lies in understanding each other’s physiology.

Why Do Men ...

E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork answers questions that women have been dying to ask! He explains why men ...
      

  Lose weight faster?            Hold their liquor better?             Scratch down there?   



Financial Inequality Leads to Infidelity
A recent study found that men who earn less than their spouse are five times more likely to cheat. One explanation is that lower-earning men may feel that their partner’s high wages threaten their masculinity.

“We women are pioneering right now,” OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson says. “It’s the first time where women are making more than their spouses.”

“If you’re thinking about cheating on your spouse because she’s more successful than you professionally, you need to get a grip,” Dr. Travis says. “Be proud! Support her.”


I’m Sorry!
A recent study found that women apologize more often than men. The Doctors takes to the streets to find out why

“If you’re always apologizing, and you’re not even sure why you’re apologizing, that can be a bad thing,” Dr. Travis says. “That can be a sign of lack of self-confidence. If you didn’t do anything wrong, you don’t have to apologize.”

“Us women, we have to communicate when something’s done wrong,” Dr. Lisa says. “[Men] can’t read our minds. Trust me.”

Why Do Women ...

How Well Do You Know Your Spouse?
Who wants more sex? Who lasts longer? Who falls asleep first and why? Married couple Marc and Kristy, both 37, bravely volunteer to answer these questions.

"Men can have an orgasm - and this is just a shame ladies - within about two minutes," Dr. Lisa says. "Women, on average, take 10 to 20 minutes before they have an orgasm. So men: you've got to rev up your woman a little bit. Pleasure them first!"

He Thinks, She Thinks

Trish and Chad, both 36, have been married for seven years and have two children and busy careers. They’re flummoxed by each other’s ability and inability to do and remember various tasks and facts.

“Sometimes it seems like we are from two different planets!” Trish says.

The couple undergoes brain balance testing, founded by Dr. Robert Melillo, to better understand their differences.

On average, the male brain is 10 percent bigger than females, but a woman’s brain receives 15 percent more blood and contains more nerve cells and cellular connections. The compact structure of the nerve cells may cause them to function more efficiently and effectively.

Both male and female brains are divided into two hemispheres that play different roles in perception and behavior.

Dr. Melillo explains that when undertaking a task, the male brain utilizes either one hemisphere or the other and relies on specialized brain regions. Women utilize both hemispheres more fluidly regardless of the task, which can explain why women tend to be better at multitasking than men.

The Brain Balance results indicate that women tend to excel in dividing attention and performing fine motor skills, whereas men tend to excel in focusing attention on one subject or task and performing gross motor skills, such as wrestling, playing football, etc.

“Your strengths may be her weaknesses, and her strengths may be your weaknesses,” Dr. Travis says. “I love the fact that if you two work together, there’s nothing you can’t do.”
