Moon effecting human sexual side?
« on: 12/02/2009 20:58:10 »
Hi i heard somewhere before that people have been most "horniest" when a full moon is out.  So if that is true is that why it seems so romantic under a full moon.

I can't comment on men but women tend to follow a 'hormone' routine (at least from puberty to menopause). It is said that most women reach a peak of sexual desire just prior to ovulation (which makes perfect sense), but not every woman's cycle coincides with a lunar cycle.

I think a full moon feels romantic because of social implications and perhaps the extra light allows us to gaze into each others eyes more easily.

But does gazing into eyes under a full moon make people 'hornier'?

I can't remember where I will try to find the source but I remember reading it.

Well for people living in a city the extra light provided by the moon pales in comparison to all the street lights etc. so if there was any truth to the extra light making people horny you would think the moon would be insignificant in this regard.

If someone was to argue it's the gravity not the light then it wouldn't matter if it were full moon or not.

I think the quantity of alcohol consumed has more to do with it than the moon. The wheel fell off my menstrual cycle!!! My ovulation certainly doesn't coincide with every full moon. I do grow hairs on the back of my hand though!

I'm willing to bet it's a misconception as a result of men using a full moon, as something relatively sparsely occuring, as an attempt to get in a girl's knickers.

Much like flowers (to an extent), diamonds, gold, sunsets, etc. a full moon, as something that isn't there everyday and all the time, is something we set aside and consider an event to be appreciated and therefore it is pounced upon by overly active young men as an attempt, within a wider almost militaristic campaign of experimenting with any potential trigger, to get lucky with the object of their momentary desires.

Any evidence in support of the claim is most likely entirely coincidental due to the cyclic nature of activity within the lady-parts that might just, once in every few hundred people, fall in time with the orbit of the moon, and that's the person you hear the supporting evidence from.

For example:
A population of 10 000 ladies.
2 have the most sexually active point of their menstrual cycle coincide with the full moon.
You're looking for evidence on the matter - if you are doing so informally in uncontrolled conditions you're likely to find information only from those 2 (or maybe a few who set out to disprove it) - possibly caused by bias in the question, i.e. "Full moon, horny" and so instead of 0.02% of your population having their 'sexually intimidating towards Robert' peak at the full moon your result reads more like 100%.

The  Sun can definitely affect your sexual side if you sunbathe on your back.

The moon here radiates light all over in the evening here where I am there are hardly no lights.. Its pitch black when the darkness falls only stars and moon.. a couple mile or two away you can see some light way off in the distance but for the most part we are away from light pollution here at night!

 Ya i too believe when "full moon" and "yellow moon" is appeared in sky. There will be more negative vibration is produced, When the negative vibration falls on us it's harm..
  So most people believe that devil arises on "full moon"
