Brain scans found that women are more responsive to romance after they have been fed. Food is the way to women’s heart, as well.

The Effect Eating Has on Female Desire: Study

Women may be more responsive to romance when they’re full.

That’s according to the results of a small new brain-scan study published in the journal Appetite. Author Alice Ely, now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Diego, had already studied how women’s brains respond to images of fatty foods on an empty and full stomach and found that both their hunger status and dieting history did influence brain activation patterns. She wanted to see if a woman’s hunger state had an effect on another highly rewarding stimuli beyond food: romance. “We found that it did,” she says.

Ely and her colleagues recruited 20 young women who were all normal weight. Half had tried at least twice in the past to lose weight, and half h… Continue Reading (3 minute read)

    This is real? I doubt any human wants to have sex when they’re hungry. What was the purpose behind the study? Looks like someone took research out of context for the purpose of content.

    I, too, perform brain scans on women when I want to understand them better. You know, for science.

    I’m more responsive to defecating after I’ve been fed.

    People are taking this out of context and saying women who are extremely hungry won’t want sex. That’s not what the title nor article says…

    Even if a female isn’t specifically hungry, they are more accepting of romance in general (when did romance only involve sex anyways?) after having been fed.

    Have massive meal:

    Women: “Love me!”

    Men: “I must poop now.”
