Dudes who pay ladies to shake their booty and take their tops off like it when said ladies’ baby making ovens are set to go. ‘Tis true. According to the study Ovulatory Cycle Effects On Tip Earnings By Lap Dancers, published in Evolution and Human Behaviors blah blah blah, lap dancers make more money when they’re ovulating.
To put it simply, dudes can tell on a subconscious level when a chick is ovulating, menstruating, or is somewhere in between. Cool super power, huh?
If you have a hard-on for evolutionary biology, you’re on the train with the whole “dudes-are-wired-to-want-to-spread-their-seed-far-and-wide-to-as-many-women-as-possible-to-ensure-the-propagation-of-their-genetic-material” theory. In that case, it makes sense that in order to achieve the best results possible nature wired men with the ability to tell when a woman is ovulating.
Apparently, dudes pick-up on cues like dilated pupils, flushed skin, a change in smell, etc. And although the worse thing some guys can think of is knocking someone up, dudes tend to find themselves more attracted to women who are ovulating. At least, on a subconscious level.
Men are apparently soooo damn good at this, that when shown pictures of women who are at various phases of their menstrual cycle they pretty much always rate the ones who are ovulating as more attractive than their menstruating counterparts. BONANZA!
The study, which focused on the effect this has on the amount of tips a stripper will make on any given shift during her menstrual cycle, discovered that the lap dancers involved in the study made on average $335 per 5 hour shift when they were ovulating, compared to $260 when not ovulating, and $185 when menstruating.
What does this mean for strippers? Always, always, schedule your vacation time when you’re menstruating (duh). As for the rest of you ladies, I’d suggest scheduling all first dates during the fertile period of your menstrual cycle, whether he knows it or not the dude you’re dating will find you more attractive. Just don’t tell him about it this little trick, because he’ll probably freak the fuck out and think you’re weird as hell.
