I understand you are not trying to be derogatory towards women, but the facts are, men are the same exact way. You shouldn't look at this as a question about a women's sexual desires, it should be about people. Some people want to get married and settle down, some people do not. Some people like having many sexual partners, some people do not. Every individual in life is totally different, you cannot make generalizations. Why do some people have issues with relationships ? For literally a million different reasons. Some people are abused, some people have a bad relationship with their parents, some people are brought up in strict households, some people grew up without parents. Some people have been cheated on in the past and have bitterness and anger, some people can't trust others, some people are too kind and nice to see when they are being taken advantage of. Your questions are not answerable as an absolute. Why are some women more sexually permissive than others ? Because they are. Are all women sexually free ? No. How do you tell if a woman enjoys sex and with several partners ? That will probably come up eventually in a conversation where you will find the answer you want from her telling you.
