You are equating two different things here.
When a 25 year old woman says she likes burritos, and a 50 year old man says “No you don’t”, who do you think is right? That’s the scenario and context here. It’s not “men know what women want in romance”.
That doesn’t compare with women’s magazines where women write for women to read. Even in the case of “what men want” articles in women’s mags, you are probably going to find more examples of interview articles, where a woman writer interviews “7 men who tell us what they like” and print their responses.
