    ArticleShe argued that while men produce testosterone all the time, female hormones affecting sexual interest increase as the amount of daylight increases.


    Hmmm. If that were the case, then you'd think that female sexual interest would peak near the summer solstice in late June instead of April/May like the study found.

    ArticleAccording to sexologist Bente Træen at the University of Tromsø, men's sexuality is considered to be more stable while women's is more affected by surroundings and by menstruation.


    If it's not hormones causing a seasonal peak in men getting horny, what do you guys think it is about the late summer/early autumn that makes guys wanna fuck? icon_idea.gif

    Female hormones, specifically, estrogen increases throughout the day because estrogen is released in a pulsatile diurnal fashion.

    Testosterone in men is released about 1x/hr in a pulsatile fashion.

    The amount released every time is not constant for the male or the female.

    The seasons don't affect human females who don't have estrus cycles. It could also be accounted for that people have less fat and energy during winter, and fetus development is very expensive for the woman and the newborn if she were to give birth in the winter.

    More children are born during summer months than any other season, so most conception events took place in winter. If what the researches said is true, more births would take place in winter.

    Makes sense. Males would be at most genetic advantage to plant their seed in advance of a hard winter which might winnow their numbers. The female genetic advantage would be most receptive to a hardier male who made it through a winter.

    That's why it's just good to be gay and fuck in the ass.

    I don't think I'm ever officially horny. I have too much on my plate. If I hookup, it's for fun and mental stimulation...not horniness icon_razz.gif

    I didn't know horny was a state. And I didn't know any states were pretty. Except Florida.

    Another tid-bit is that men tend to maintain their # of weekly ejaculations in or out of a relationships while women can go long stretches of time without sex or masturbation.

    I'd think this study has something to do with the sub-artic/artic climates up there and the distribution of sunlight throughout the year.

    I'm horny when there's a new moon.
    I can't explain it, except to say that I was born under the sign of Cancer, and the moon is my planet (even though, actually, it's not a planet). But, I'd think that would mean that I should be hornier when there's a FULL moon. Go figure...
