I have an Airsense for Her. Yes, it is switchable between Cpap, Airsense and Airsense for Her (3 settings). Yes, men can use that setting (there is one male poster here who does and finds it more effective for him).
The Algorithm For Her responds a bit differently. It addresses events quicker, then maintains the rise longer by a more gradual drop in air pressure. I recall that the guy here who has it said it was much gentler for him and he slept better. I've used both settings and find them equally comfortable and both keep my AHI below 1. I just don't wake up as often due to pressure changes. If you are dithering, the price is the same, so get the For Her model. If you find you don't use that function, you aren't actually out any money and you don't have to constantly wonder - darn, I should have got that! I assume that since you are in Australia, you are going to buy from the US.
Note: the S9 For Her was just a marketing gimmick. There is no difference in the algorithms between the regular model and the For Her - just color.
