Estrogen May Make Women Promiscuous

A new report released this week suggests that high levels of estrogen, known as estradiol, may make some of us act a bit slutty. Apparently, the hormone not only makes us feel pretty, it makes us horny, as well — and not just for the one we’re with. “Women with higher estradiol reported a greater likelihood of flirting, kissing and having a serious affair with someone other than their primary partner and were marginally more likely to date another man,” reported researcher Dr. Kristina Durante of The University of Texas at Austin. Researchers discovered that women with high-estradiol were considered significantly hotter by themselves, as well as others. High-estradiol is also the hormone that makes women especially fertile, so researchers report: “Results provide support for the relationship between physical beauty and fertility and suggest that women high in reproductive health engage in opportunistic serial monogamy — being open to affairs and moving on to a new relationship if a higher-quality mate becomes available.” It’s interesting, though, that the study only tested 52 women, all between the ages of 17 and 30, all undergrads, and all in Texas. That hardly seems like a fair representation of fertile woman, if you ask me. I mean, everyone knows Texan undergrads are loose. Oh, I kid, people. I kid. [Yahoo]
