Talking to Hot Women is Good for You!

Best day of this guy's lifeWell we all knew it was fun, but now a study done at the University of California has proven that talking to and spending time with good looking girls is actually beneficial to a man’s mental health!

149 male students between the ages of 18 and 24 were recruited as test subjects. These guinea pigs had to speak with a researcher for 5 minutes. One unlucky third of the men got stuck talking to a 25 year old male researcher while the rest of the guys got to speak with one of seven young, hot undergrads between 18 and 22 years of age.

Once the test ended, the men were asked for a sample of their saliva to be tested for hormone levels. The results were astounding. For the third of the group who got stuck talking with Professor Moose-Knuckle, their testosterone levels dropped by 2% and their cortisol level dropped by 7%. The other two thirds of the men, however, showed a much different result. In just a 5 minute conversation with a good looking lady, these guys’ testosterone increased by 14% and their cortisol level increased by 48%. Obviously a drastic improvement from the suckers in the one third group.

Testosterone is a hormone that is a key player in a man’s sex drive so it isn’t all that surprising that this level would spike during a chat with a pretty lady. What makes this beneficial is that testosterone doesn’t just boost a man’s sex drive, but rather; it doesn’t countless other beneficial things to the human body. A man with a ton of testosterone flowing is going to be more alert and focused, he will also feel great physically as testosterone assists with muscular endurance and is also beneficial to cardiovascular health.

Cortisol is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands. How a man benefits from cortisol is primarily psychological. Cortisol helps reduce stress and anxiety and therefore makes someone who is stressed out much happier. With a boost of 48% from talking to a woman for 5 minutes, you should be in a better mood and perhaps everyone could benefit from that.

So, guys, print off a copy of this and head out to find some ladies to talk to. If they give you any grief, tell them you’re just looking out for your own personal health and make them feel like crap for trying to thwart your efforts. You might also want to forward this page to your girlfriend. She’ll have no choice but to believe it. It’s scientifically proven.

    You’re a damn good man. What’s funny is that swallowing semen actually does have health benefits. You were just looking out for her, really.
