Autumn. It’s nearly here. The time of year going to amusement parks is most enjoyable. The crisp, dryer air makes standing in line a pleasant experience rather than a wringing one from summer heat.
|Roller Coaster Reflection|
You may want to schedule a trip to the nearest roller coaster to check this fact:
A 2003 study conducted by Dr.’s Cindy Meston and Penny Frohlich, stated riding a roller coaster, frought with thrill, may cause the opposite sex to be more alluring. They were testing Excitation Transfer Theory. This was to weigh an,
‘established fact that the sympathetic nervous system arousal does not terminate abruptly with the cessation of the eliciting conditions, but rather it declines relatively slowly resulting in a certain degree of arousal residue.’
In other words, the excitement of the ride lasts a little while even after it’s over and could make you excited for the opposite sex. The findings showed that generally after a roller coaster ride the opposite sex was found to be more alluring.
Some articles suggested that just scaring yourself with a chilling movie or an experience that is moderately intimidating (surfing) or flat-out frightening (skydiving), may also leave ‘arousal residue.’
But, if riding in the danger zone isn’t in the budget, you may consider wearing matching RED his/her t-shirts.
According to Adam Pazda’s 2011 University of Rochester study, he asked 25 men to rank the attractiveness of women wearing different colored dresses. ALL 25 men ranked the red clad lady between 1-1.5 points higher than the second choice (white).
In a similar 2010 University of Rochester study, 288 women (and 25 men) were interviewed regarding male attractiveness wearing different colors. The women found men in red to be ‘more sexually desirable.’
For females, low libido is usually more of a headgame than a physical game. So, sometimes a little fun can spark a small fire in diminished desire. Both of you consider wearing RED and heading out to the amusement park or maybe just the IMAX to watch a roller coaster ride.
