If You’re A “Girly Man,” You’re Probably Randy

A new study by University of Virginia researchers found that male mice with an “extra ‘girly’ sex chromosome seemed to have an insatiable appetite for sex.” You may be hesitant to conclude that research done on mice applies to humans, but according to LiveScience, the genes that determine sex are similar in mammals. This is especially believable when you read about how the XXY males, the “girly” ones, behaved during the experiment. Many college boys can relate:
When they studied these mice, they found that the males with two X chromosomes (the XXY males) were about twice as fast to ejaculate and ejaculated nearly twice as often than those with only one. They also mounted females more often and during sex showed more pelvic-thrusting motions.
Sounds like the entire male population at my alma mater, but I doubt all these guys have XXY chromosomes. According to LiveScience, human men with two X chromosomes exist, and while some symptoms to look out for are infertility and decreased testosterone levels, many men do no show symptoms of this phenomenon. Other than being total horndogs, but most of the time they just use their gender and evolution as excuses for that.
We’re unsure how to define “girly man” without offending anyone, but use your judgment and avoid these fellows, unless of course you don’t mind being mounted out of nowhere.
