Are you a lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan? It’s probably because you really want to get pregnant, which I guess was the hidden message of this intro:
In the study, 124 women ages 18 to 47 were asked what color shirt they were wearing, and when they had their last period. From the latter question, researchers calculated which women in the study were currently at the peak of fertility in their cycles (about six to 14 days after the last period).
Those who were wearing red or pink were about three times more likely to be at peak fertility than those who wore other colors, the study found.
Why red? Isn’t yellow the first color the human eye notices? Am I making that up?
I do not think you are, Laura Beck!
But I’m not entirely surprised that women wear those colors when they’re at their most fertile – red and pink are often associated with romance and passion, so it makes sense that you might wear them if you were looking to get laid. Though I would also think some other colors can be seen as just as sexy – there are a good number of references to women in little black dresses, for instance. Frankly, tan can also be pretty sexy, especially if it’s the kind of tan that makes you look naked.
Or green. Green can be a sexy color if you find alligators attractive.
Look, I bet this all comes down to personal preference. What do you wear when you want to get laid? A yellow dress? Polka dots? Some sort of bizarre Pucci design from the 70′s? I hope you’re wearing something weird if only so you can throw off studies.
