Fear not, horny people of the internet; there may be scientific reasoning behind the uptick in your horniness depending on the colors of the leaves. One recent study shows that humans may have mating seasons, much like our fellow species in the animal kingdom. In a study released early this year entitled “Seasonal Variation in Internet Keyword Searches: A Proxy Assessment of Sex Mating Behaviors,” researchers followed seasonal Google trends over the past five years, targeting keywords and topics concerning pornography, prostitution and dating.

While following the seasonal trends of these three topics, the study found that throughout the five years of word trends there was a “consistent 6 month harmonic cycle with the peaks of keyword searches related to sex and mating behaviors occurring most frequently during winter and early summer.” (Link)

What’s even more interesting about this study is that its cycle seems to correlate with previous studies relating to seasonal tendencies regarding births, condom sales and other sex-related issues, which solidifies the authenticity of the findings even more. We suppose it does make sense for the peaks to happen during the winter and early summer. You can’t deny that a bed to yourself in the dead of winter is cold and depressing, and no one can help checking out the beautiful women in their short shorts and skimpy tops once summer comes around again.
