Fertility and Sexuality in Married Women

fertilityandwomen.jpgIs there a difference in sexual preferences among women depending on their marital status?

Yes – according to a recent report in Psychological Science. Sexual preferences of married women are actually linked to their menstrual cycles. During fertile periods, these women are mostly attracted to single men. However, during their periods of infertility, sexual preference shifts to married men. What is more interesting is that this instinctive shift in sexual preference is not evident among single women.

Italian scientists attribute this to a behavioral pattern inherited from our early ancestors. This now manifests as a subconscious knowledge that married men are less likely to engage in extramarital affairs than unattached men. Furthermore, the risk of getting caught is also higher.
