Men React To Sound Of Woman's Voice During Climax Of Menstrual Cycle


A man’s skin tickles following the sound of a woman’s voice, according to U.S. researchers who established that voice attractiveness depends on a woman’s monthly fertility cycle.

The study found that when hormonal changes occur at the fertile time of a monthly cycle, the change effects a woman’s larynx, which in turn triggers a positive reaction among both men and women without them noticing. Within five seconds of hearing a woman’s voice at the most fertile time, electrical activity in a man’s skin was shown to increase around 20 percent. Men’s heartbeats were also found to increase at the sound.

“A man’s ability to identify and respond to a fertile woman confers him a potential reproductive advantage when choosing between potential mates,” Melanie Shoup-Knox, the study’s author, said. “Women, on the other hand, may get a competitive advantage from detecting the fertility status of other females.”

The stereotype that men prefer women with higher voices and women prefer men with lower voices was confirmed by this study. Researchers noted that the tone of voice indicates the size of the speaker’s body, meaning that a deep male voice generally belongs to a man with a large frame.

The study has revealed how dependent on instincts human beings actually are – a notion that has long been a matter of scientific concern.

Additionally, researchers found that people are attracted to voices similar to their own, which is a factor that refers to social and geographical marking.

“The voice is an amazingly flexible tool that we use to construct our identity,” Molly Babel, one researcher, noted. “Very few things in our voices are immutable, so we felt that our preferences had to be about more than a person’s shape and size.”

Researchers conducted the study by asking male participants, including some gay men, to listen to digital records of women speaking at fertile and non-fertile times of their menstrual cycles. Participants were also asked to listen to women using hormonal contraception.
