That just doesn't seem fair. The partner of a nursing mother is often getting very little, if any, sex. Yet, the partner of a woman sniffing her milky perfume gets more than ever before?

That stinks. Heh.

Anyway, there is still great skepticism about the field that McLintock seems to have helped to found.

It's ok -- 9 months from now he won't be getting any either.

The woman 'sniffing her milky perfume' has increased sexual motivation (according to her answers on a questionairre). That doesn't always translante into getting more booty.

I don't see why not.

n ~ 20, ha. Questionaire, ha. An abstract that leaves out any numbers, let alone their statistical significance. A supremely questionable choice of control pads. Multivariate analysis included just to obfuscate things. Fishy statistics and a rather cryptic presentation of the numerical results in the paper (pdf) itself. We would destroy this thing in journal club.

I say NEEE.

Teenage reading of John Updike's 1960's novel Couples permanently seared "Nursing moms = SEXY" into my monkey brain.

Sheesh.

My wife has been feeding for almost five years straight now (relax, that's for two kids). For sure it's sexy. But unless I'm offering a backrub, she doesn't want me to touch her.

I did the math and found that we have the smartest people here of all threads so far, today. Congratulations, everyone, and thanks for the info and input.

Uh, mcgraw? What do those links have to do with this post?

Maybe you just need to link to sites that require registration.

Agregoli: Nothing, that's Mcgraw's MO.

McGraw's post is easy. Virginia is protecting us from scalping and sex offenders by taking care of the problem where it starts.

There's usually a subtle connection between McGraw's apparent non-sequitur links.

I can't figure out his latest, but mcgraw's ability to present things from a viewpoint ninety degrees away from the pedestrian is both refreshing and challenging. mcgraw rocks!

I like you, agregoli, and wish we got along better.

I don't see how we don't get along? Your post was extremely pointless - I call them like I see them.

Well, what I meant to say with that W.T.F. post was just "wow, what a crazy world", that's all. Went to a couple news sites and the latest stories were those stunning links. Yes, they weren't relevant to this fpp. You have good reason to criticize that post, as you have chosen to do.
