Re: Part 2: An Animal With A Strange Life Cycle
That's an interesting article, but I think the point is still true -- a feeling of "oh, I want to wear that low-cut shirt today, with my new necklace" is not connected, consciously
, in a woman's mind with "oh, I must be ovulating".
(This study reminds me of another, on how women seem to be more attracted to men whose immune systems are different than theirs. Here's a link.
I haven't processed Diamond's chapter on that yet, so I'm going to flail here in my attempt to say the human female's genes have reasons to hide ovulation, but have obviously developed these subtle ways of pushing women to make themselves more attractive, to want to feel sexier, on days when they are fertile.
