"Ovulatory cycle effects on tip earnings by lap dancers: economic evidence for human"

Interesting:


Ovulatory cycle effects on tip earnings by lap dancers: economic evidence for human estrus?☆

Geoffrey Miller, Joshua M. Tybur, Brent D. Jordan
Received 16 April 2007; accepted 26 June 2007. published online 28 September 2007.

Abstract
To see whether estrus was really “lost” during human evolution (as researchers often claim), we examined ovulatory cycle effects on tip earnings by professional lap dancers working in gentlemen's clubs. Eighteen dancers recorded their menstrual periods, work shifts, and tip earnings for 60 days on a study web site. A mixed-model analysis of 296 work shifts (representing about 5300 lap dances) showed an interaction between cycle phase and hormonal contraception use. Normally cycling participants earned about US$335 per 5-h shift during estrus, US$260 per shift during the luteal phase, and US$185 per shift during menstruation. By contrast, participants using contraceptive pills showed no estrous earnings peak. These results constitute the first direct economic evidence for the existence and importance of estrus in contemporary human females, in a real-world work setting. These results have clear implications for human evolution, sexuality, and economics.

Keywords: Estrus, Female sexuality, Behavioral economics, Sexual service industries, Hormonal contraception

Great study but nothing new. Women have a mid-cycle testosterone surge that coincides with ovulation. Women are highly sensitive to testosterone's effects; increased libido and sexual behavior.

Strippers get better tips when they are ovulating because they give more "enthusiastic" dances.

Intersting hypothesis, Moses, but the data is open to other interpretations. Obviously this issue needs more research.

I think that a lap dancer on the rag would tend to be a bit non-responive, moody, tend to smell sorta bad. I wouldn't drop a fidy on a chick on the rag...

Nope. Research. Exhaustive research. (In the name of science, of course.)
