Emotion = arousal: Our emotions are tied to our sexual function, especially arousal, more so in women than in men. When we're angry & frustrated w/our partner, we're less inclined to be interested in sex. When we're worried about or distracted by something, we're less interested. Men are just a bit more crude and have less of a direct connection between emotion & arousal that is more easily overridden.
