Before delving into the weightier issues of the day, the hosts of ABC’s “The View” took a crack at demystifying some of the difference between men and women when it comes to sex, and when they like to partake.
Host Joy Behar was unafraid to share her opinion, opening the subject by reading from a study that found that “men and women are on completely different schedules when it comes to sexy time.”
“Women are most in the mood at 11:21 p.m.” while men “want to do it at 7:54 a.m,” according to Behar’s account of the study. The comedian then joked that “To me, this is a good case for same-sex marriage, frankly.”
Pregnant co-host Abby Huntsman shared her insight and said for her it’s either “any time of day” or “don’t touch me.” She did, however, say that she understands why women prefer to have sex at night due to stress and worry.
“Women worry more. We’re just up — I have a hard time falling asleep,” she said.
Guest co-host Ana Navarro also disagreed with the timing in the study saying, “I’m married to a 70-year-old Cuban. Whenever he’s ready, I’m ready. Dime, Papi.”
“All I can say is, ‘Thank you Viagra,’” added Behar.
McCain finally cut in, attempting to turn the conversation back to a less risque topic:
“Alright, everyone. Okay,” McCain said. “I think we should talk about Brian’s sex life again,” she added, referencing the show’s stage manager Brian August. “If I have to sit through this, so do you. I’m not talking about it.”
Behar, however, wasn’t done handing out advice and was in fact prompted by two of the other co-hosts to share her “secret” to the perfect circumstances for sex, saying that she had honed a system after, “two husbands, a few boyfriends,” and many years.
“If you want to have a great sex life, and you’re married a long time and you’re really sick of each other,” she said, “Totally empty stomach, martini in the afternoon, at a hotel. Or a motel, even sleazier.” Behar then doubled down on the “no eating” rule.
“No food. Because you want that booze to go right to your head and other places,” she said with a laugh. “Because we’re not always in the mood when they are. But this will put you right in the zone.”
McCain, again obviously uncomfortable, attempted to turn the conversation away, but was cut off by Behar who handed the show off to commercial break:
We’ll be right back,” she said, adding, “Just listen to me.”
