    Default The Sexier the Walk, the Less Fertile the Woman

    A sexy sway of the hips, long-believed to be a sign seduction from women, actually may mean back off, according to a new study.

    A woman with a sexy walk is unlikely to be ovulating, which is typically when single women seek out male partners, according to a new Canadian study, French news service AFP reports.

    A team at Queen's University in Ontario, Canada, dressed female volunteers in suits which had light reflectors placed on the joints and limbs and filmed them walking in order to analyze their gait. Saliva samples were taken from the women to test their hormone levels.

    Researchers said women who were most fertile walked with smaller hip movements and with their knees closer together.

    Forty male volunteers were shown the footage of the women and asked to rate their sex appeal. The men rated the least fertile women as having the sexiest walks.

    Despite the baffling results, the researchers said there was no contradiction to the findings because women who are most fertile are much more upfront with their desires to find a mate.

    Sorry folks, yet this "study" is completely bogus. The conceit is entirely false: 40 horndogs were asked "Which of these women would you most like to procreate with?" NOT "Which of these women would pump out the largest litter?". One can not ask one question and use the result to answer another.

    This is pretty much the equivalent of asking 40 children "Do you like McDonalds' French Fries?", then announcing that they are improperly nourished.

    I think the test results would be skewed by men who are turned on by one-piece jumpsuits with light reflectors on them.

    And by the proximity to closing time.

    Now that would be a study worthy of some government funding!

    Agreed. At least it was Canada using their research dollars and not the US.
