Women may notice an increase in sexual fantasies during certain days of the month, and according to a new fertility study, it's during their most fertile time. Not only that, the fantasies were "more arousing," women feel more aroused in general, and the fantasies involve a "higher proportion" of men! The study was conducted by the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, of 27 heterosexual women between 18 and 30 who were not in a relationship or on hormonal birth control. Each filled in a daily online diary about their fantasies for one month.
Previous studies suggested that most women only fantasized about sex once a week. That ridiculous idea will have to go the way of "women don't enjoy sex" after this study! This study says that the women reported an average 0.77 sexual fantasies a day. However, during the three days around ovulation, this increased to 1.3 per day along with the above mentioned increase of the number of men in each fantasy. It has always been suspected that this was nature's way of ensuring the human race continues. Now there's evidence of at least some women having the desire for multiple men. It's "survival of the fittest" in action. Does this mean women should accept men's desire (thinking, not doing!) for multiple women? Maybe, but don't hold your breath!
