Men Find Dancing Women More Attractive During Most Fertile Time
Research dig deeper into theory that "men are able to not only detect when women are ovulating, but find them more attractive."
Article written by guest writer Rin Mitchell
What’s the Latest Development?
According to researchers, men who viewed videos of silhouettes of dancing women were "more likely to describe those who were ovulating at the time as more attractive than women at other stages of their menstrual cycle, which goes contrary to the longstanding theory of “concealed” ovulation in humans." The researchers from the University of Göttingen in Germany picked up where another study left off, "where a group found that strippers tended to get better tips when ovulating." Videos were shown to 200 male students at the University. Based on the study, "men who didn’t know what the purpose of the study was, much less which women were ovulating and which weren’t, found those women who were ovulating at the time they were recorded dancing, to be 'significantly more attractive.'"
What’s the Big Idea?
There has been controversy as to "whether women behave differently when ovulating, " and "more and more studies have found that men are able to pick up on subtle changes to body movements during the times when women are most fertile." It has also been suggested that "such studies are more about seeking headlines than science, while researchers insist that their studies show that women behave in ways that men see as sexier when they are their most fertile."
