Is it Hot in Here? Hot Weather Ramps Up Libido

If the temperature is hot—and so are you, there’s a scientific reason for that, a study finds. When you’re exposed to sunlight, your body produces more seratonin and Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (MSH). MSH has been linked to increased sex drive in women, and seratonin just makes you feel good.

Hence, more sex.

Are you hot as in hot? Or is it too hot for hawtness?

I guess Cole Porter was wrong when he wrote It's Too Darn Hot. Who'd have thought it?

@Miranda Neville, I still have to agree with Cole; I mean, if it weren't for AC, well, let's just say being sticky is not incentive.

Can you relink that study? When I click on it I get an error page. :)

I suppose biology wise this makes sense. I mean animals do all their mating and reproducing in the spring right? So we get to getting busy while plentiful food and warmth make for a greater success in carrying a child to term? This could be another one of those hold-overs like that study that says that women prefer older, more stable partners and men prefer younger, healthier ones.

That being said I am a firm believer in the "It's too damn hot" philosophy. Espicially in the 100+ days.
