So once again it is officially the fall, a time of year characterized by midterms, rain and barely there halloween costumes. Is it any wonder that it’s the time we seem to have the most sex? Conventional wisdom would have us believe that spring and summer would be the big sexy sex months what with all the birds and bees etc. But a recent study has shown that the fall is the time when both male sex hormones and female sex hormones tend to peak.
The biological rationale behind it is pretty sound. Firstly people get depressed when the weather changes and what better way to get a natural dopamine kick than a good old fashioned romp in the leaves. Evolutionarily speaking it makes sense too, babies conceived in the fall will be born at a time when the sun is out, making Vitamin D synthesis easier. This helps the babies grow strong bones and immune systems.
So next time someone tells you about Spring Flings and Summer Love you can tell them about F**king Fall.
