The Nature News Service reports of a new study made by the University of Newcastle. According to a survey of British men and women, females appear more attractive during their monthly menstrual period.
The study involved around 50 women from age 19 to 33. The study’s team took two photos of each woman, the first one taken when the woman was fertile (around 8 to 14 days after her the first day of her period) and the other taken 14 days later. 125 men and 125 women were then asked to choose the picture which showed the more attractive version of the women.
It might come as a shock, but more than 50 percent in both men’s and women’s group chose the picture in which the woman was fertile. What made their minds? Craig Roberts, the leader of the study team, points out that during the menstrual cycle, the female’s skin tone and condition are a huge factor.
