Guys Are Hornier In Autumn
A team of Norwegian researchers concluded that women and men function differently when it comes to wanting sex, with women at their most active in spring and men in autumn. The research team at the University of Tromsø in northern Norway has found that female sexual desire is determined by the light and sun.
“Women follow the light with regards to sexual interest, but surprisingly men don’t. Both women and men reach their nadir in December,” said Arne Holte at the University of Tromsø (UIT) to broadcaster NRK.
Holte has studied the connection between sexual lust and light among young people in Tromsø, Alta and Hammerfest in northern Norway, and concluded that April/May is the period when women display a heightened interest in sex, while men tend to be most sexually active in August.
And to add a little more “spice” to this apparently randy time of year, in a study from Chicago’s Smell and Taste Research Center, researchers tested the effects that 24 different odors had on arousal in men. According to lead researcher Alan Hirsch, M.D., the number one scent that increased men’s penile blood flow was a combination of lavender and pumpkin pie!
