Women don’t like to sweat while having sex, so they are less likely to have sex in warm weather, according to the latest climate health claim.
Climate change and your birthday: Is it too hot for sex?
Have you ever wondered why March is a busy birthday month?
A new study suggests Australians are more inclined to exert themselves between the sheets when they can avoid getting hot and sweaty.
Last month the Sunshine Coast had its most fruitful month to date, with a record 258 babies born at Nambour Hospital.
Women’s and Family Services acting director Keppel Schafer said the numbers were in line with the Sunshine Coast’s annual birth pattern.
And he said winter weather conditions were the reason behind last month’s baby boom.
“The ongoing trivia that we have amongst the trade is that it’s the first cool change that the coast experiences in June or July in the year before,” he said.
“That probably sees us very busy nine months later in the following March.
“I think there’s a bit more snuggling under the doona and then there’s a new baby in a bunny rug nine months later.”
All I can say is, thank goodness for alcohol, swimming pools, ceiling fans and air conditioners. Otherwise we warm climate Aussie men would never get lucky.
