I had no idea that Diane was psychic, so I was naturally interesting in hearing more. She went on to say, "A new study suggested that women are 60% more likely to dress sexy when they are ovulating." Wow! I wasn't prepared to hear that. My own wardrobe decisions are usually based on the weather and who I am seeing for the day. Could I subconsciously be making the same decision too? I would not be too surprised if the answer was yes.
As a woman, I have experienced and caught myself doing strange things as I have grown older. I have compared notes with my girlfriends who are in my age bracket and two things seem to be consistent:
1. A woman's sex drive does seem to increase in the thirties
2. Whether a woman has the desire to have children or not there does seem to be some sort of internal clock ticking
I try to ignore my clock, however being the baby making machine I was born to be, my clock seems to have the upper hand on timing. I imagine a little woman inside me who is part women and part general of war.
She is in constant communication with my mother, a woman known for bringing up the topic of grandchildren. She also seems to launch PMS missiles of pain whenever she chooses to do so. I really have to engage my body in war to defeat her. Lucky for me, I figured it out “ working out more and eating better seems to make her retreat.
Animals of all kinds exhibit irregular behavior during ovulation. They may look, act and/or smell different. It is not a big stretch to imagine that we do the same too. I find myself laughing when I put the idea into perspective. I am pretty sure it would be a complete buzz kill to most men to hear this as they express an attraction to a certain women,"Her? She's not sexy, she just ovulating."
