1. Everyone wants warmth!
The desire to start a new relationship or not destroy the old one during the cold season is normal. Moreover, in the English-speaking world it even has a name – cuffing season (literally – “season of cuffs”).
There is a theory that our physical sensations influence the way we think. Since people try not to leave the house once again in frosty unpleasant weather, this social isolation creates the feeling that they are colder than they really are. Obviously, the body in such a situation requires heat in every sense. And the feeling that you are not alone, but with someone, can really warm! In addition, sex is definitely among the ways of physical heating, along with, for example, a hot bath or sitting by the fireplace or fire.
2. In winter, men find women more attractive.
Unbelievable, but true: a study by the University of Wroclaw (Poland) showed just such a result. The reason for this is more clothing, and even a very tiny open area of \u200b\u200bthe female body attracts the eyes of men. Another reason is the desire inherent in men since antiquity to get what they do not have (and to think out what is not visible).
3. Many people experience more arousal.
Especially men. Studies have shown that testosterone levels in men are at their highest in December, which may be affected by climate and changing sleep patterns.
4. Want communication and intimacy
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects the level of happiness. When there is less sunlight, less of it is also produced. This leads to increased depression and feelings of loneliness during the winter, and these mood changes can stimulate a desire to be closer to a partner.
5. Holiday mood is contagious
All this fuss with gifts and Christmas trees often creates a desire to communicate more with a partner or start a new relationship. Many people have long holidays and vacations, as well as corporate parties and other pleasant things during the holidays. Accordingly, less stress – more attraction.
