Psychologists find link between ovulation and women's ability to identify heterosexual men
Date:6/22/2011

cross the fertility cycle because men's sexual orientation is relevant to conception and thus of greater importance as women are nearer to ovulation."

The researchers tested this hypothesis further with a third experiment in which female participants were primed with a mating goal in order to manipulate reproductive relevance. Half of the 40 participants were asked to read a story which described a romantic encounter while the other half did not, before performing the same tasks in the two previous studies. Rule and his colleagues found that the women primed with a mating goal were significantly more accurate in their judgments than the women who were not, implying that inducing romantic or mating-related thoughts improved accuracy in identifying men's sexual orientations.

The findings are presented online in a paper titled "Mating Interest Improves Women's Accuracy in Judging Male Sexual Orientation", published in Psychological Science.
