Have I "read up on it?" Not really, I don't think...but I am at least somewhat aware of that, and also of the supposed differences between men and women, how women expect a bond and how men don't and all that bullshit.
I hear you on the masturbation thing. Not really my ball of wax.
But, that wasn't what I meant about the chemistry. I happen to be one of those people who can TOTALLY enjoy the lovey dovey "making love" experience and the "FUCK ME HARD" experience-to hell with the pre-concieved idea of "woman/man" b.s. It's bs.

LR has a few more links, I believe. Reading about all that does put a different spin on things!
This-is what I was talking about.
I was researching it for a different reason (regarding ADHD and addiction). BUT-it's very interesting to note that the human body (doesn't matter if it's male or female) sends out certain hormones and endorphins at specific times. Sex and "love" being VERY intriguing times when some intersting stuff happens. The internal chemical reactions of the body during sex are similar to the internal chemical reactions when smoking crack.
Anyway-it's pretty interesting.
