That is the best thing science has ever discovered. EVER!

Results are pretty obvious. Women smell more attractive when they're ovulating (or lactating). Maybe most men don't notice it consciously, but I sure do.


I would like to personally volunteer for any follow-up studies the researchers may propose. I'll do anything for science...

For those wondering how to get kids interested in science...


Research: It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it...

"tapped the talent at local gentlemen's clubs"

That would make for a whole other area of research.

Never mind Megan Miller's attempt at a sexist jab at the end of the article, think about what this study suggests about the behaviors of married couples in which the female is on birth control drugs for an extended period of time.


Truth be told, my wife's interest in sex is consistent all month long: Non-existent.

The study sucks. I am ashamed to be a UNM Law graduate.


The UNM researchers need to expand their horizons a little. A short drive to either El Paso or Juarez should help them confirm their study's findings. Way better strip clubs than in Albuquerque.

The suggestion that the strippers could make more money by skipping birth control, kind of ignores the rather expensive process of getting pregnant and having a baby. Ridiculous.


There was a girl on the news last nigh discussing this here in Albuquerque Stating that she made more money a day before menstruation. The scientist are talking averages. Also, women tend to be Hornier/amorous the day before menstruation. This is probably what men pick up on.

Awesome blog, I've been a reader of your blog for a while now, probably one of the best I have come across, very informative.. Keep up the great work, Josh.


Female hormones cause them to smell and act different. Just before and just after their period and in the middle of their cycle when they are the most susceptible to becoming pregnant, women give off distinctive odors or auras that entice their mates are anyone who happens to be around them. Endorphins cause them to feel good about themselves and to want to please their partner. These are being released at these times. They are also being released when they are lactating or pregnant. (There is nothing hornier than a pregnant or lactating woman.) What I find interesting is that this was a funded study. How do I get a grant to do this kind of research?


As for theory - you have to find it yourself. As for practice - maybe I could give some help. I found an interesting program on one of the thematic forum recently. It searches for combination automatically. Nice one, though poor in interface.
Program is based on Martingale system with the corrected algorithm. It`s based on searching and waiting a series of results («red or black» usually). But this one I got is for «head or tail».
There were discussions «pro and against» this soft, but I downloaded it and explored for about half an hour and left it in automatic mode till next evening. What I found in the morning was 250WM.
But use this soft shrewdly, admins in casinos do not welcome these things.

Actually, that is one of the best discoveries ever, though it's not a recent one, in principle. Just as a female animal "in heat," a fertile woman has an increased libido and sends off various signals to men ranging from direct dialogue to pheromones and such.
I thikn a large amount of promiscuity and adultery could be cut down if people just realized it was their hormones talking. I know when I was in high school there were girls I didn't find particularly attracive whom I sat next to in certain classes, and, every now and then, I'd feel a strong desire to have sex with them, and now, as an adult, I know why that is, but it really confused me then.
Practicing natural family planning, and knowning my wife's fertility, I've come to be aware of how her fertility makes me feel. When I'm in public, and particularly when I'm teaching, and certain feelings start coming over me, I just think, "Hey, that girl must be ovulating!"

i like this part of the post:""Birth control could lead to many thousands of dollars lost every year.... If you're a woman in any service-industry job looking to maximize your tips, Miller suggests scheduling more shifts for the phase right before ovulation: 'It might help to know about this so that you can exploit these effects.'"" is very good... is very important this info thanks!!
