Why is it that men have such strong s*xual urges while women don't?

Why can't both of the opposite s*x be in the middle ground?

    In early life, usually just before puberty, males are said to be quite flexible regarding their “preferred sexual incentive”,[16] although they later become inflexible. Females on the other hand remain flexible throughout their life cycle. This change in sexuality due to sensitivity to variations in situational, cultural, and social factors is called erotic plasticity. Otherwise, we know very little about the feelings of sexual desire and sexual arousal in prepubertal children or whether any feelings they may have can be comparable to what they would experience later on in life as an adult.[9] However, we do know that boys typically experience and commence sexual interest and activity before girls do.[11]

    Men, on average, have significantly higher sex drives and desire for sexual activity than women do; this also correlated with the finding that men report, on average, a larger total number of lifetime sexual partners. ......more.....

    The instinct to propagate. Females are one at a time creatures. Males are not.

    Don't fall into the illusion that it is anything more than that. Evolution is not a Disney fan.

    married men live longer than bachelors

    Bachelor men die in their late forties or early fifties. The basic instinct live longer drives men towards women
