Flirting With Hot Chicks is Good For Your Health

Flirting with an attractive woman is not only fun, it’s also good for your health. That’s the finding of a new study that measured the hormonal impact of flirting on men.

Researchers at the University of California studied 149 male students between 18 and 24 years old. A third of the group talked to a male researcher while the others interacted with coeds aged 18 to 22. The psychologists then took a saliva sample from the men to measure hormone levels.

The scientists discovered that a mere five minute talk with a hottie boosted testosterone levels by 14 percent and cortisol – an anti-stress hormone – by a whopping 48 percent. Both testosterone and cortisol are associated with alertness and well being.

In contrast, the guys who spent time with the male researcher showed drops in both hormones.

Researchers have long known about a similar effect in animals, called the “mating response”. The University of California scientists carried out their study to see if humans experienced the same hormonal boost.

Other studies have shown that married men or those in long-term relationships have lower testosterone levels than those still searching for a mate. Scientists believe that when men find women attractive, their brains send signals to the pituitary gland, boosting production of testosterone.

So you might just be better off chatting with your hot women friends than hanging out at the bar with your buddies. The next time your friends ask you to go the bar and hang out, think twice, maybe its worth just going to a completely different place and flirt with the hottest girls in the place. Start off with the bar tender but these get hot on several times a day so try and be a subtle as possible to stand out.

If something is good for your health we at Just A Guy Thing are all for trying it out, especially when it’s flirting. Remember even if you’re married it is ok to flirt, as long as your wife is not around, this can send you to the dog house.
