I'm not sure there IS any human behaviour that no-one talks about. Whatever it is, someone out there has written a book or published a blog or does their dissertation on it.

I have to admit I think the question is sort of weird. "How would a woman behave" implies that we're all alike. We're not interchangeable. Yes, as women, we all have some things in common, but how we'd react to a disappointing sexual encounter isn't one of them. Our age, birth order, religion, life experiences, astronomical sign, upbringing, education, choice of friends, etc. and to infinity, will determine how each of us reacts to a disappointing sexual encounter. If you're having trouble writing realistic females, this lumping together of souls might actually be part of the problem. We're people. Not some mysterious "other". Just people. :P

If you want your character to act like a real person, find out who she is.

I think you and I have precisely the same problem with this question, although we voice it in nearly opposite ways.
