The things we are told briefly of paradise are probably the things we can relate to in this world that we find pleasurable. If Allah swt stated there is a place in Paradise Named 'Tasneem' without following it by a description it would probably not have any impact on you whatsoever. Thus the best things of this world are what is mentioned but, we'll be a different creation. And Paradise will not be anything like this world..
Now I'd like to pose you this question, and it is an honest one..
I don't know how old you are but since you started your pubertal years on, how many female companions have you had? 2~3? try to imagine in that short span how many "normal men' go quite through a few women as a perfectly natural thing.. and then try to think of that thought to encompass eternity!
Having a companion is something that is dear to our collective hearts. why would be in an alone state in paradise?

Women aren't omitted from the bliss of paradise, it is a matter of propriety when addressing the exquisitely refined gender to not to cause undue abashment.
'Hoor El Ayn', again literally translates to those whose scleral parts is sharply contrasted to a very dark iris.. it doesn't translate to female, or lovely eyed virgin.
and Allah swt knows best
