Does Warm Weather Really Make People Horny?
weather is here
It has made me quite horny
I need to have sex
You know it's serious,
and a desperate attempt at remaining rational, when one resorts to writing
a Haiku to help cope with horniness. But there it is, in plain Haiku English.
And it says everything I have been feeling the last couple of days.
Honestly, I'm not
that young anymore. I've been out of college for more than four years,
and the old adage about spring turning boys (and girls) fancy to sex seems
more suited to high school (and perhaps college) students. But here I
am, ready to drive by the nearest high school (or college, or construction
site) with the convertible top down, wearing Daisy Dukes, trying to get
For those of you
living in the south, or southwest, or somewhere outside of the U.S. that
is tropical, this column might have less meaning. But us east-coast sorts
have always had to deal with this phenomenon. This year, we experienced
a horrible winter. Record snowfall, cold temperatures, and perhaps most
significant, very few (if any) warm weather breaks. Most winters, we at
least get a tease of warmer weather throughout the winter, which might
help to keep our hormones somewhat balanced. But this year, it has pretty
much been one long winter.
Then suddenly, the
cold broke. And now, we are experiencing temperatures close to 70 degrees.
It happened quickly, and while many of my male friends were seen dusting
off their golf clubs and hitting the driving range, or polishing their
cars, my weekend was spent thinking about getting laid. Not just any method,
however. I wanted to be outside somewhere, on a deserted beach. Or perhaps
a park, under the trees. Somewhere where I feel the breeze and the sunshine,
while feeling an artist masterfully playing a concerto between my legs.
Okay, I lied. Right now, I don't care if it's in a dark, dusty trailer
or a small studio apartment with no windows. I just need to get laid.
But before I begin
my search for my latest prey, I started wondering whether there was something
scientific about why people (and specifically me this year) get hornier
when springtime arrives. Is it some hormonal imbalance? Is it sociological?
Or is it just nature?
An extensive Internet
search could not provide me with a stitch of medical evidence that there
is any true chemical reason for the warm weather horny condition. I came
across a few lame theories, but none that had enough support to bother
quoting here. I did manage to find a survey at www.queendom.com,
which asked readers, "How does warm weather affect your sex drive?" The
results were rather close between men and women. Among men, 43.5% said
it increases, 43.3% said it stays the same, and 13.1% said it decreases.
For the women, 42.1% said it stays the same, 40.2% said it increases,
and 17.6% said it decreases. There was really nothing surprising or earth-shattering
among these results.
Related to this,
however, I did discover that millions of people suffer from something
known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), where lower levels of sunlight
alter production of brain chemicals and can lead to depression, among
other things. It is widely believed that one of the best cures for this
condition is simply more sunlight, which often happens when the weather
turns warmer, and people begin going outside again.
S.A.D. can perhaps
explain some of the issues with spring hormones, but what about the millions
of others that do not experience depression during the colder and darker
months? It seems ripe for speculation, which I will do here. Sex and attraction
are highly visual. When warmer weather arrives, people begin going outside,
after spending most of the winter months couped up inside watching TV
and seeing their skin turn pale. Once the holidays are over, many people
start dieting, and exercising more to be ready for the warmer months.
Spring clothes begin appearing in stores, and people want to look good.
Some of us start tanning at the salons, and spend longer hours in the
gym. Then, all of a sudden, a warm weekend arrives, and we are thankful
that we at least started to work on our appearance before the weather
turned. For us gals, we see guys wearing less clothing, where their muscles
are finally seen again. And the guys are doing manly things, like sports
and working on cars or other physical projects. For guys, they begin seeing
women walking around, and the women are wearing less and less clothing.
Skin begins to appear, followed by the same Daisy Dukes that I am about
to test in a few hours! And seeing this after a winter of gloom and doom
makes us think about sex.
There are also media
driven reasons to associate sex with spring. How many of you have ever
gone on a spring break vacation? I have. It's all about drinking, partying,
and sex. Watch MTV, or any news show, and you'll undoubtedly see reports
from spring break locations. And how about those "Girls Gone Wild" videos
from spring breaks around the country?
Anyway, my faithful
guy and gal readers, there you have it. If you felt hornier this weekend,
you are normal. You do not suffer from any chemical imbalance, nor do
you have any kind of sexual addiction or affliction that needs help. Like
me, you simply need to have sex. You have been couped up too long, and
spring brings a new awakening.
Have some great sex,
and I'll try to do the same!
