Hormone? I didn't hear anything. But it cost me $235.

Women who have high levels of oestradoil also show elevated confidence and a greater inclination to have sex outside of their current relationship, according to the US-based research.

The ovarian steroid hormone is also associated with having a symmetrical face, large breasts and a low waist-to-hip ratio.


Damn! Is there any way we can petition to get this stuff added to the water supply like fluoride?

Oestradiol is a well known hormone that is known to affect the development of secondary sex characteristics in adolescent women.

It is also used as a growth hormone in cattle.

Before we add it to the water, can we have a little more research done?

So it's use in cattle, and cattle produce milk and meat, and our schools are full of super well-developed teenage girls who act like total tramps.

Coincidence?

Yes. Milk and meat from cows has never been conclusively shown to contain anything more than minuscule traces of hormones given to them.

"Marilyn Monroe is actually a really good example of a woman who was almost certainly high in oestradoil," Australian sexologist Dr Frances Quirk" FTFA

Australian Sexologist Dr. Quirk? Something's not right here.

Hmmm...I sort of follow this area of research as an interested amateur (why certain physical features and character traits are considered sexually attractive, and the hormones and genes linked to them), and I can recall a couple other hormones and genes supposedly discovered to be responsible for all these traits. Couple that with the whole "Hey, if we call this the Marilyn Monroe gene, do you think we can get mainstream press coverage" tone of the piece, and the ridiculously named expert "Dr. Frances Quirk", I'm getting a strong whiff of shenanigans off this article. On the other hand, Professor Quirk does indeed seem to be a faculty member at the college in question, according to a quick web search.

Remember a few months ago when Jessica Alba's publicist had a story planted that claimed that scientists had calculated the most perfectly desirable waist-to-hip ratio for a woman, and it exactly matched Jessica Alba's, making her the scientifically-certifiable hottest woman alive?

If it will give me bigger breasts, awesome. All I will need now is a local place that delivers booze, and I will not never have to leave my house again.

You are right. In test after test performed by the American Beef Producers and the Dairy Council there have been no links. Reliant Energy also found no link between power lines and brain tumors and Motorola found no link between cell phone usage and cancer.

Rich guys like to have sex with hot and horny girls, giving more attractive women the chance to "trade up" if they want to.

The University of Texas study took in 52 young women, aged 17 to 30, and checked their oestradoil levels using a saliva swab. They were asked to rate themselves on perceived desirability, quizzed on their sexual motivations and also their inclinations relating to their current relationship.

It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it.

"...and finally, now you've told me your boyfriend's a jerk - how about you and me..."

Not so fast. TFA also says that the hormone is associated with dissatisfaction with their current partner and a tendency toward upwardly-mobile serial monogamy. Fark is already a haven for bitter chronically-rejected beta males, so I doubt that widespread distribution of this hormone would be so great an idea.

(But, y'know, that doesn't include ME or anything. Alpha all the way. I'd explain more but I gotta be at the gym in 26 minutes.)

Quite the contrary, since the women with this hormone are always dissatisfied it means that us beta males just have to buy a hot car on credit, get some lipposuction, and lie our asses off and we got a shot at nailing a really hot biatch.

"She was a classic hour-glass figure and because of her relationship pattern - she was a serial monogamist.

"Her relationships last three or four years or slightly longer, and if you look at the men she had relationships with, they increased in status."

Too bad she was a serial monogamist with someone else's husband!
