'Female body more desirable in winter'
This study which has reached the conclusion is based on a very low sample size, so it's very difficult to say how much it will hold true for larger sample basis. But funnily enough maximum marriage takes place in the month of December , coldest month in Indian winter.May be Indians had already discovered it and were using this knowledge.
The fair sex might find it hard to believe but a new study has claimed that women's bare body in winter is a bigger turn-on for men. A team at Wroclaw University in Poland has carried out the study and found that men actually find women's bodies more attractive in the winter - a revelation they claim might have an impact on choosing a mate and on levels of adultery.
According to experts, though there is no clear explanation for the variation, one theory can be that fewer female bodies are on display in winter and so the rarity makes them more attractive, the Sunday Telegraph reported.
In fact, they came to the conclusion after carrying out an experiment on 114 men who were asked to rate photos of women at different times of the year. The participants were shown snaps every three months over a period of five seasons. Three kinds of photographs were shown to the subjects - full body portraits of women in black swimsuits, exposed breasts of different sizes, and faces of young women.
Results revealed that bodies and breasts were rated most attractive in autumn and winter, and least attractive in summer. But there's no seasonal variation in ratings for faces - which the experts believe may be because women's faces are on view all year round.
