That's funny because up until about 500 years ago, it was women who were considered to be way more carnal than men, and men were warned away from the wantonness of the libidinous female gender.

You might want to educate yourself about what female sexuality is actually like, rather than what the mores of the past 500 years have demanded of "respectable" women.

There are plenty of women on Medium, me included, who write about that from both personal experience and from research/science. Here's a good one to start with:

"One of the things that you’ve probably never considered because it goes against what we’ve been taught about female sexuality is that she’s just bored with the routine, rote sex you may be having several years into an established relationship. “We were taught that men were the ones who needed variety, but the exact opposite turns out to be the case,” says (Wednesday) Martin. “Overfamiliarisation with a partner and desexualisation kills women’s libido. We used to think it’s only men who became sexually bored after marriage; turns out that’s not true. It’s when women get married that it’s detrimental to their libido.”

“A couple live together, their libidos are matched, and they have a lot of sex. But after a year, two years, maybe three years, what tends to happen is that the woman’s desire drops more quickly than the man’s. At that point, the woman thinks, ‘I don’t like sex anymore.’ But what, in fact, is happening is that she is having a hard time with monogamy; because women get bored with one partner more quickly than men do.”
