Study: What Women Really Want — The Effect of Women’s Cycle on Preferences for Male Behavior

(Neuroscience) In the past, there has been much excitement over research that purported to show a link between changes in a woman’s cycle and how attracted she was to men behaving in different ways. However, research at the University of Göttingen using the largest sample size to date questions these results. The new research showed that shifts in women’s cycles did not affect their preferences for men’s behaviour. The researchers found, however, that when fertile, women found all men slightly more attractive and, irrespective of their hormone cycle, flirtier men were evaluated as being more attractive for sexual relationships but less attractive for long-term relationships. The results were published in Psychological Science.

Got Man Boobs? It’s Not the Soy, It’s the Beer

(S.D. Wells) If you listen to your medical doctor, who knows very little about nutrition, you may think those man boobs are genetic, or caused by obesity, drugs (legal and illegal), or most likely soy, but you would be way off. What’s really affecting those hormones and influencing them so badly that thousands of men now have large, sagging breasts full of excess mammary tissue?
